The CIA has been on the ground in rebel-held areas of Libya since shortly after the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli was evacuated, U.S. officials say. Agency officers are meeting with rebels in an effort to learn more about them, and in some cases providing them with non-lethal assistance. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the matter.
