Obama: Those around Gadhafi “will be held accountable” [VIDEO]
U.S. President Barack Obama warned Monday that the U.S. and its NATO allies were still considering military options to stop what he called “unacceptable” violence perpetrated by supporters of Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi.
Obama spoke as Libyan warplanes launched multiple airstrikes on opposition fighters in the second day of a harsh government crackdown to thwart rebels advancing on Gadhafi’s stronghold in Tripoli.
“I want to send a very clear message to those who are around Colonel Gadhafi,” Obama told reporters, alongside Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who is in
Washington for meetings.
