SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) — President Barack Obama says he has no doubt that the US will be able to transfer control of the military operation in Libya to an international coalition within days.

Obama and other U.S. officials have insisted that the role of the U.S. military will be scaled back in coming days as other countries begin carrying out airstrikes designed to deter forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammer Gadhafi.

NATO has yet to step up to take the lead, and France has proposed that a committee be created to oversee the operation.

Speaking in El Salvador, Obama says he's confident the U.S. will be able to scale back its participation.
