President Obama’s chief of staff on Sunday said that many of those calling for the U.S. to enforce a “no-fly zone” over Libya “have no idea what they’re talking about” when it comes to the burdens of such an undertaking.

Days after Mr. Obama said he is considering a full range of both military and nonmilitary options to thwart leader Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s violent crackdown on rebels, William Daley pushed back against intensifying calls for a no-fly zone, suggesting that some advocates don’t grasp the seriousness of such an operation.
