Coalition Bombs Gaddafi Residence After Offer of Ceasefire (Video)

Didn’t Obama say the mission was to protect innocent civilians in Libya?
Then why are the coalition forces bombing Gaddafi’s residence after he offered a ceasefire?

SKY News reported:

An air strike has destroyed an administrative building at Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s residence, according to reports.

The news came as the White House said it did not recognise a ceasefire called by Colonel Gaddafi, and anti-aircraft fire continued in the skies above Tripoli.

The Libyan leader ordered armed forces to down weapons from 7.00pm, via a government spokesman at a press conference, but witnesses reported strong blasts and gunfire in Tripoli throughout the evening.

A 10 Downing Street spokesman responded to the Libyan announcement, following a meeting of the National Security Council, saying: “Everyone will recall that in recent days Colonel Gaddafi declared a ceasefire which was promptly violated.

Defense Secretary Liam Fox said yesterday he would sanction a ‘bunker buster’ attack on the Libyan dictator’s lair as long as civilian casualties could be avoided.

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi vowed a “long war” as allied forces launched a second night of strikes on Libya just a few hours earlier.

UPDATE: Speaker Boehner released this statement today asking President Obama to define the mission in Libya.

“The President is the commander-in-chief, but the Administration has a responsibility to define for the American people, the Congress, and our troops what the mission in Libya is, better explain what America’s role is in achieving that mission, and make clear how it will be accomplished. Before any further military commitments are made, the Administration must do a better job of communicating to the American people and to Congress about our mission in Libya and how it will be achieved.”
