Clapper: Qaddafi Will Win



Text  



From Reuters:

 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday that the better-equipped forces of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi will over the long term prevail.

Clapper told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Libyan forces loyal to Gaddafi were better equipped and had more logistical resources, and “over longer term, that the regime will prevail.”

I think that’s almost certainly right. Doesn’t make it helpful, though.

UPDATE: It sure looks like a major turning point, as the back of the rebellion appears to be close to breaking.
