Other nations can train Libyan rebels: Gates

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Other nations should be the ones to provide any training and assistance to Libyan rebels, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday.

“In terms of providing that training, providing assistance to them, frankly there are many countries that can do that — that is not a unique capability for the U.S. and as far as I’m concerned (somebody) else should do that,” Gates told Congress.
