Faux: Troops to Liberia?

Thought I'd check The Agonist, now that our mission in Iraq has been "accomplished," and all that, to see what was up there, and found this: Faux

"We have the green light to do something in Liberia, we are working on that something right now," a senior defense official told Fox News.

There is a "fast-team" of 50-75 Marines, specifically trained to provide security to the U.S. Embassy, on standby in Spain, according to defense officials.

Another administration official said the White House did not want to take the military option off the table for fear of making headlines just before Bush starts a trip to Africa next Monday.

Right. Plus, there might be photo ops!
