U.S. military planners are working on a wide range of options on actions to take in Libya, possibly imposing a no-fly zone, halting warplanes from attacking civilians and removing wounded civilians from the country, The New York Times reported Feb. 28, citing unnamed U.S. officials. The officials said that the United States would seek an international consensus for action and that the scope of planning has substantially increased over the past few weeks. The officials said that the Obama administration believes that only the U.S. military can lead across a full range of options to halt the violence. The officials said that now that most U.S. citizens have left Libya, the United States is more open to speaking publicly about military options.
