I read last night that Gaddafi was desperately trying to get troop transport for a long while
and it was almost approved when the Egyptian protests broke out, and the State Dept. nixed it. Seeing this video now with all the pickup trucks and whatnot, I can see why Gaddafi wanted it so badly.

Didn't save the link, but seeing this today, I wish I had.

I guess maybe it could be said then, that the Egyptian protesters helped save Libyan lives, because if Gaddafi had gotten that transport he would've been to Benghazi faster.
