President Obama says NATO is considering “potential military options” in Libya.
Obama spoke briefly to reporters following his meeting in the White House with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
He said NATO, meeting in Brussels, is consulting “around a wide range of potential options, including potential military options, in response to the violence that continues to take place inside of Libya.”
Obama said the U.S. will stand with the Libyan people as they face “unacceptable” violence. He said he has also authorized millions of dollars in humanitarian aid.
