Clinton: Opportunity for New Start in Libya

Thursday, 20 Oct 2011 01:38 PM


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is offering cautious optimism about the future of Libya now that interim leaders say former dictator Moammar Gadhafi is dead.

Clinton did not confirm reports of Gadhafi's death when asked about them during a trip to Pakistan on Thursday.

Meeting with a large delegation of U.S. and Pakistani national security leaders, Clinton would only say that if true the reports offer a "new opportunity for Libya to move forward to the future."

President Barack Obama is expected to comment about Gadhafi's death during a Rose Garden appearance Thursday afternoon.
