    Canada to deliver the Freedom Fries...
    "return on investment" when talking of training foreign soldiers...

    Fox News also has learned that the U.S. sent Special Forces to train Mali troops last year prior to the northern region of the country falling to Al Qaeda-linked militants. One senior military official told Fox News he was wondering "why they didn't get a better return on their investment."

    Earlier Monday, Canada announced its intent to send a C-17 military transport plane to assist with the French campaign. The Canadians were careful to say their role will not include direct involvement in the conflict and that the aircraft is on loan for one week.

    The Islamists said they had made a "tactical retreat" from Timbuktu and other key towns where they have imposed a brutal version of Islamic law for almost 10 months.
    But they struck back in western Mali where they took the small town of Diabaly from the country's weakened army, highlighting the daunting campaign ahead to restore order in the West African nation.
    French jets yesterday hit Douentza, 800km from Bamako, which the Islamists have held since September. But residents said the fighters had left before the warplanes arrived.
    In Timbuktu, where inhabitants have been executed or had limbs cut off in some of the worst abuses, the Islamists reportedly fled in anticipation of an attack.
