That's because US interests are focusing on Libya at the moment, not Syria.
The Arab league and the UN haven't been pushing for intervention either.

If it were hypocrisy - which I don't think the evidence shows - it is not just on the part of the US.

I hope the US knows what the rebels are going to do and their plans.
What do they stand for other than pushing out Qaddafi.

Meanwhile, Syria goes ignored as it kills it's citizens.
The Libyans asked us for assistance the Syrians have not. Not to mention we have a UN resolution ordering us to intervene in Libya. Which is not the case in Syria.

A quibble, The UN does not 'order' us to do anything. The Arab league nor them are the instigators of US policy. Think about other reasons, besides the political rhetoric.

There are dozens, but none of that changes the fact we are authorized to intervene in Libya, and not in Syria.
