Re "UN envoy opposes foreign intervention in Libya" (Page A1, Aug. 26): According to an article on the front page of The Bee, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates launched secret air attacks agaisnt Islamic radicals in Libya without informing Washington, catching the Obama administration totally by surprise.

Well, the president has consistently championed the concept of leading from behind. Is totally out of the loop far enough behind for you, Mr. Obama?
