Clinton on Libya: No decision on arming rebels yet

From NBC's Jason Seher
Addressing the media at the London Conference on Libya, Secretary of State Clinton today said the United States has not ruled out arming Libyan rebel forces. While she admitted the Obama administration has not made any decision about arming rebels or providing any arms transfers yet, she said U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973 would allow the United States to do just that in the near future.
 
Clinton said, "It is our interpretation that 1973 amended or overwrote the absolute prohibition of arms to anyone in Libya, so that there could be a legitimate transfer of arms if a country were to do that."
 
She continued, stating: "It's obvious to everyone that Khaddafy has lost the legitimacy to lead. So he must go."
