Adviser: US Maintains Limited Role in Weapons Hunt

Sunday, 11 Sep 2011 03:33 PM


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's counterintelligence adviser is confirming the administration's refusal to expand unilateral efforts to find missing shoulder-fired missiles and other weapons in Libya.

Obama adviser John Brennan said Sunday that the United States will continue to work with Libyan rebel leaders to help officials in that country find the missing weapons.

Brennan tells "Fox News Sunday" that the Obama administration will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide Libyans with the information and intelligence they need to find the weapons.

U.S. officials in intelligence and nonproliferation have argued that the price of the missiles, known as Man-Portable Air Defense Systems, or manpads, has been dropping, indicating that some are already being sold on Libya's regional black market.
