WH official: We're working to stop flow of mercenaries into Libya

“We’ve been working to ensure there isn’t a flow of people into Libya,” said Samantha Power, the National Security Council’s senior director for multilateral affairs, on a Wednesday conference call with non-governmental groups. The call was off the record, but a recording was provided to The Cable.

Power didn’t go into detail about whether or not the administration believes that Qaddafi is still trying to import mercenaries and she didn’t going into detail about what the U.S. was doing to stop the flow of people into Libya…

Power also said that the administration was increasingly reaching out to opposition groups in Libya, with the goal of setting up reliable communications to better understand the situation on the ground.
