French fighter jets struck an air base deep inside Libya and shot down one of Col. Moammar Gadhafi's planes, officials said Thursday, and NATO ships patrolled the coast to block the flow of arms and mercenaries. Other coalition bombers struck artillery, arms depots and parked helicopters, officials said.
We've seen this movie before. Spectacular photos of Tomahawk cruise missiles being launched from American Navy vessels. B-2 bombers piloted by amazing American crews making nonstop trips from Missouri to the Mediterranean. And Americans of all political stripes asking: What's the plan?
I'm glad we have Washington Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott to keep us up-to-date on history in presidential decision making. Mr. McDermott on Sunday spoke on Fox News to remind everyone that President Obama didn't "rush into" the decision to attack Libya the way his predecessor, former President George W. Bush, did in Iraq.
Aides close to Moammar Gadhafi are urging the Libyan dictator to crush the resistance in a rebel-held town close to the capital, Tripoli, and then propose a division of the country with the rebels holding the eastern part, rebel sources told The Washington Times on Thursday.
Almost 100 "individuals" have filed a "Statement of Candidacy" with the Federal Election Commission as 2012 presidential hopefuls.

During his March 11 news conference at the White House, President Obama declared, "When it comes to U.S. military actions, you know, I don't take these decisions lightly."
Many Americans were disappointed when President Obama devoted a Saturday radio address to a celebration of the progress of women in society. Most of us were more interested to hear about the progress (or lack of it) in dealing with the crisis that threatens to become a new war in Libya. The president was excited about a new White House report on the status of women, the first such report in 48 years. John F. Kennedy assigned Eleanor Roosevelt to explore the subject on that occasion.
