WASHINGTON (AP) — NATO's secretary-general says the alliance's Libyan operation has made plain a growing gap in military technology between the United States and other members.

In a speech in Washington Thursday, Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that aspects of the Libyan operation could not have been carried out without U.S. technology. He cited drones, surveillance equipment and precision weapons.

Noting the declining military budgets of some NATO allies, he said he is worried that European allies risk falling behind.

Fogh Rasmussen called on the United States to make more cutting-edge military technologies available to its allies.

He also said that NATO may need to play a role in building democracy in Libya if the government of Moammar Gadhafi falls.
