WASHINGTON - US ships are being moved to waters closer to Libya in order to prepare for contingencies of a chiefly humanitarian nature, a White House spokesman said on Tuesday.

Spokesman Jay Carney also added, however, that "we aren't taking any options off the table."

He also said Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's inner circle ought to "think twice" about continuing to support him.
