Pentagon: ‘We are not going after Gaddafi’ -- Obama changed his mind?
Source: Rawstory

"We are not going after Gaddafi," Gortney said, despite breaking reports of plumes of smoke being spotted near Gaddafi's residence in Tripoli.

"At this particular point I can guarantee that he's not on the targeting list.," Gortney said. However, he emphasized, coalition forces do not know of Gaddafi's whereabouts, so there is a chance he could be caught up in a strike.

No civilian casualties have been tallied, nor have coalition casualties. No coalition aircraft have been shot down. The UK, France, Canada, Italy, Belgium and Qatar are currently joining in coalition efforts in Libya, but Gortney said more countries would be announcing their participation as well.

The member has been escorted from the building. This clubhouse has a "No Paulites" sign on it.
