NATO succeeded in aiding the Libyan rebels in toppling Moammar Gadhafi despite early challenges in coordinating missions, and now the alliance and Libyans face an uncertain future, analysts and former officials say.
"NATO is ready to work with the Libyan people and with the Transitional National Council," NATO Secretary-General Andreas Fogh Rasmussen said, referring to the rebels' interim leadership based in Paris.
"We will continue to monitor military units and key facilities, as we have since March, and when we see any threatening moves towards the Libyan people, we will act in accordance with our U.N. mandate" to protect civilians, he added.
