Tonight John King, USA will feature an interview with the history making point person for the United States air operations in Libya. As the first female in command of a U.S. air mission, United States Air Force Major General Margaret Woodward discusses Libyan opposition complaints that coalition forces are not striking Gadhafi’s forces hard enough. She also discusses her unique role of managing the American component of NATO’s mission over Libyan skies.
Woodward told CNN National Correspondent John King, “I think we’ve done a very good job of trying to make sure that we are carefully targeting … our strikes to protect the civilian population.”
She added, “Obviously, that takes a lot of care and targeting and that is not necessarily a simple thing to do, but they are working very hard to target the right targets as they go along. I think their results speak for themselves.”
The interview will air tonight in the 7pm EST hour.
