"The White House announced today it planned to expand a program to secure and destroy Libya's huge stockpile of dangerous surface-to-air missiles, following an ABC News report that large numbers of them continue to be stolen from unguarded military warehouses. Currently the U.S. State Department has one official on the ground in Libya, as well as five contractors who specialize in 'explosive ordinance disposal,' all working with the rebel Transitional National Council to find the looted missiles, White House spokesperson Jay Carney told reporters."
