U.S. Weighs Libya No-Fly Zone

Is it time for the U.S. to intervene in Libya? The administration on Monday said it was still weighing whether to support a no-fly zone over the warring nation, a reaction to a harsh increase in air strikes ordered by Col. Muammar Gaddafi against rebel opposition leaders. But a senior U.S. envoy said the move may have “little effect.” In the meantime, NATO has begun round-the-clock surveillance flights over the nation’s skies, and Britain and France shown their support for the no-fly zone by beginning to draft a U.N. resolution on the matter.
