As reported by Press media that the US President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert US government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. He had signed the order, known as a presidential "finding", within the last two or three weeks, according to government sources familiar with the matter. Such findings are a principal form of presidential directive used to authorize secret operations by the Central Intelligence Agency,

White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement that is a common practice for such issues and administrations. He further said that he not going to comment on intelligence matters, He will reiterate what the US President had said that no decision has been made about providing arms to the opposition or to any group in Libya.The CIA contrary to it has declined comment on the US President Barack Obama ‘s authorization. In addition to the CIA operatives, dozens of British special forces and MI6 intelligence officers are also working in Libya, the newspaper said. News that US President Barack Obama had given the authorization surfaced as the President and other US and allied officials spoke openly about the possibility of sending arms supplies to Gaddafi's opponents, who are fighting better-equipped Government forces. Those who are familiar with U.S. intelligence procedures said that Presidential covert action findings are normally crafted to provide broad authorization for a range of potential US government actions to support a particular covert objective. In 2009 , US President Barck Obama had given a similar authorization for the expansion of covert US counter-terrorism actions by the CIA in Yemen. US officials also have said Saudi Arabia and Qatar, whose leaders despise Gaddafi, have indicated a willingness to supply Libyan rebels with weapons.
