Latest Libya Items
President Obama said Monday that a U.S.-led coalition has staved off a humanitarian disaster at the hands of Col.

Libyan rebels closed in on Col. Moammar Gadhafi's tribal stronghold Sirte on Monday, but despite significant gains over the past few days, they predicted a bloody battle lies ahead.
President Obama's choice of the National Defense University as the site of his Monday night speech to nation on Libya means he is forgoing the traditional backdrop presidents routinely use when discussing military action: the Oval Office.
