    It’s happening: French officials confirmed Saturday that French fighter jets are flying over Libya, after Col. Muammar Gaddafi's invasion of the rebel stronghold Benghazi has violated the United Nations' resolution. French President Nicolas Sarkozy said the Libyan population "must not be deprived of its rights by violence and terror." U.S., European and Arab leaders met in Paris Saturday to discuss Libya, with a senior State Department official calling the meeting a “minute-by-minute consultation between the United States and the militaries of other countries that are considering their support of action.” President Obama has said the U.S. will take a supporting role in the military action against Gaddafi, but vowed there will be no ground invasion by U.S. troops.
