Clinton: US committed to NATO mission in Libya



Berlin–Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the United States is committed to supporting NATO’s mission in Libya, as leader Muammar Qadhafi tests the resolve of the alliance with continued attacks on opposition forces.

Clinton assured NATO allies on Thursday that Washington was prepared to do what it takes to ensure the success of the mission and called on US partners in Europe and elsewhere to boost pressure on Qadhafi to step down from power.

Clinton is in Berlin for two days of NATO meetings hoping to bridge differences over how the alliance should proceed in the Libya operation.
