Libyan rebel leader with U.S. ties feels abandoned

Khalifa Hifter thought he'd be America's man in Libya. He'd spent the last 24 years living under what he calls U.S. government protection in suburban northern Virginia. Before he returned to Libya last month, State Department and CIA officials sought him out for meetings. He delivered to them wish lists of weapons and vehicles to bolster the fight against Moammar Gadhafi. To his frustration, however, U.S. officials haven't contacted him since.
