(Bumped and Updated)
The Obama Administration won’t send the military to rescue US citizens in Libya.
They don’t want to look like war-mongers.

The Obama Administration is STILL grappling with whether or not to send the military into Libya to rescue US citizens.
CNN reported, via HotAir:

The senior U.S. official also said the “prudent planning” for military options centers around the president’s priorities of protecting U.S. citizens and interests and stopping the violence against Libyan civilians. He cautioned against thinking the U.S. military “was about to storm the beaches,” but he also declined to specifically rule out the use of military force.

So far, the State Department has not requested the U.S. military to assist in the evacuation of civilians from Libya, which would be required for the military to get involved in that operation.

Several U.S. officials have confirmed to CNN there is a vigorous debate inside the administration about whether to involve the military because of concern it could cause further provocations by the Libyan regime.

UPDATE: They charted the wrong boat. It was too small!
