U.S. forces repositioned near Libya

The U.S. military is repositioning naval and air forces around the nation of Libya. The Pentagon says Western nations are weighing a possible intervention to prevent Libyan president Moammar Gadafi from killing his own people. Defense News reports, a Pentagon spokesperson says the move gives President Obama a range of options in a crisis. NATO allies are considering setting up a no-fly zone over Libya. They may also create what they call a humanitarian corridor in neighboring Tunisia or Egyot to help refugees.
