WASHINGTON - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi will likely be removed from power over time by his own people, as a result of political and economic measures, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday.

The comments came a day after revelations that US President Barack Obama signed a secret order authorizing covert US government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Gaddafi.
