In an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday morning, Admiral Mike Mullen emphasized that military engagement in Libya is at the request of the Libyan people and being done as part of a broad coalition of supporting nations, including the Arab League. He emphasized to host Bob Scheiffer that the terms of the US engagement are finite and strictly limited, and seemed unconcerned that the situation there could devolve into a ‘stalemate’ between coalition and rebel forces and Gaddafi loyalists.
