Air Force and Navy aircraft are still flying hundreds of strike missions over Libya despite the Obama administration’s claim that American forces are playing only a limited support role in the NATO operation.

An Africa Command (AFRICOM) spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday that since NATO’s Operation Unified Protector (OUP) took over from the American-led Operation Odyssey Dawn on March 31, the U.S. military has flown hundreds of strike sorties. Previously, Washington had claimed that it was mostly providing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and tanker support to NATO forces operating over Libya.

“U.S. aircraft continue to fly support [ISR and refueling] missions, as well as strike sorties under NATO tasking,” AFRICOM spokeswoman Nicole Dalrymple said in an emailed statement. “As of today, and since 31 March, the U.S. has flown a total of 3,475 sorties in support of OUP. Of those, 801 were strike sorties, 132 of which actually dropped ordnance.”

Wait one second there sir. Are you claiming the great orator is lying again? How can that be? He promised us hope and change from the ways of that liar Bush and Cheney. I don't believe you I believe everything Obama tells me.

Hey..Obama said "just a few days" but he forgot to add "a few years and" to that sentence.

And who is going to stop the President ? WHO ? Congress didn't.

Well when your performance is that of Barack Hussein Obama
what else can you do, He's consistent in his attempts of deflection
Shift the topic, Ignore the facts, Name calling just like the liberal
handbook instructs

After statements like the following How ever could his word be taken
seriously

"I promise 100% transparency in my administration."

"I promise NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year."

"I will allow 5 days of public comment before I sign any bills."

"I will remove earmarks for PORK projects before I sign any bill."

"I will end Income Tax for seniors making less than $50K a year"

"I'll put the Health Care negotiations on CSPAN so everyone can see who is at the table!"

"I'll have no lobbyists in my administration"

“If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you’re not a racist, you’ll need to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you’re not an idiot.”

Nice bumber sticker material. Of course one of those flash mobs may turn up and flip your car and burn it while the DOJ looks the other way because a minority may have been involved.

And if you vote for anyone except Ron Paul, you would prove that you are the typical non-thinking Republican dolt.
