The CIA has inserted small groups of clandestine operatives to gather intelligence for air strikes in Libya, The New York Times reported Wednesday, citing unnamed American officials.

The move comes as part of a shadow force of Westerners that the United States hopes can help bleed Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi's military.

In addition to the CIA operatives, dozens of British special forces and MI6 intelligence officers are also working in Libya, the newspaper said.
