There's no apparent reason to continue NATO's air mission in Libya beyond the end of October 2011, said Lt. Gen. Ralph Jodice, allied air component commander for NATO's southern region, in an interview, Oct. 24, 2011. Jodice told the Daily Report that "we do not have any ongoing planning at all for anything post-Oct. 31," including air sovereignty patrols or continuing intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance missions.
