Dr. Conrad Raabe , professor of political science, discusses U.S. role in the Libyan conflict on WWL-TV news

With questions surrounding United States involvement in the Libyan conflict, NATO has not taken sole command of air operations in Libya.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates recently stated that as long as he's on the job, United States ground forces would not be deployed in Libya.

However, United States officials acknowledge that the CIA has sent small teams of operatives into Libya, and many wonder what exactly the United States objective in Libya is.

In a special edition to the local news Professor Conrad Raabe sat down with Dennis Woltering to discuss these issues.
