Below is from Jennifer:


According to DoD sources, the Pentagon is running into trouble providing airlift to the French…

Legal hurdles that Defense Secretary Panetta referred to in Rome.

In essence the French need help with airlift into Mali to fight the AQ rebels there but since Mali had a coup last year the State Department put it on a list that prevents the US military from assisting its military – the DoD is looking for ways around this legal hurdle imposed by the State Dept – it may even have to rent some planes to help the French, who by all accounts are already encountering tough resistence from the rebels.
