This is an interesting discussion on The Factor with Colonel David Hunt (Ret). and Lt. Col. Tony Schafer. Both men say there are American boots on the ground in Libya – now. The main operation is to designate targets. Special Ops puts a “laser designator” on a target, which can be seen by air, protecting civilians.
