    That is only a secondary concern:

    A senior Libyan rebel official said on Sunday Gulf oil producer Qatar had agreed to market crude oil produced from east Libyan fields that are no longer in the control of Muammar Gaddafi.

    Ali Tarhouni, a US-based academic and exile opposition figure, was designated last week by the Benghazi-based national council to steer its financial and oil policy.

    "We contacted the oil company of Qatar and thankfully they agreed to take all the oil that we wish to export and market this oil for us," said Tarhouni.

    A U.S. Treasury Department official said crude oil sales by rebels would not be subject to U.S. sanctions.

    This is the primary concern:

    Al-Jazeera is in discussions with Comcast, the nation’s largest cable operator, about bringing the network’s English-language channel to millions of U.S. homes, the Qatar-based news service said Tuesday.

    The Comcast meeting was the first move in a new push by Al-Jazeera to get on U.S. cable systems, which have been reluctant to carry the Qatar-based news network. A Comcast spokesperson declined to comment on the talks.

    It’s quite a turn of events for Al-Jazeera, which until its widely praised coverage of the unrest in Egypt was something of a pariah in the United States. During the Iraq War, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld branded the network’s reporting of civilian casualties as “vicious, inaccurate and inexcusable.”

    Now, the White House is watching Al-Jazeera alongside CNN.

    Obama, Clinton, Comcast, & the defense department are growing increasingly pleased with the new & improved Qatar & Al-Jazeera.
