Cover of US commando program in Libya blown and 20 commandos forced to leave
The complications arising from the signing of a UN-sponsored agreement to form a third government in Libya are already beginning as the Libyan Air Force blows the cover on U.S. commando operations in Libya.
Two military leaders in the east of Libya, who say their forces will not respect any peace accord, also face sanctions. They are General Khalifa Haftar, commander in chief of the eastern forces and air force head Fakir Jarroushi.He was never sanctioned nor was his Air Force buddy. This incident is no doubt just a warning to the Americans and anyone else paying attention that they had better not try to work around his authority. Another new government is not going to change things. They need to deal with him. Note that in meeting with Haftar, Kobler had to go to Haftar's headquarters in Marj rather than Haftar traveling to meet Kobler.
