Adm. William Fallon on Coalition Involvement in Libya

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

U.S. and allied forces continue their bombardment of Libyan leader Col. Moammar Gadhafi's assets on Tuesday. President Obama has reportedly said that US involvement in Libya will last for "days not weeks," leaving some to wonder if the White House has a realistic view of its involvement in Libya. Ret. Admiral William Fallon is the former commander of US Central Command and U.S. Pacific Command. He has spent considerable time working in the Middle East. Fallon told The Takeaway: "There could be significant involvement for the long haul."
