U.S. Predator drone aircraft will join the fight against Moammmar Gadhafi's forces in Libya to boost the precision of low-level attacks on ground targets. Marine General James Cartwright says the drones will provide "better visibility on targets that have started to dig themselves into defensive positions." He says they're "uniquely suited for urban areas." Three other nations are providing military advisers to Libyan rebels trying to overthrow Gahdafi. The first drone mission was supposed to be today but it turned back due to bad weather.
