Clinton warns against unilateral US move on Libya

WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton underscored on Thursday the need for international consensus on the next steps on Libya, saying any unilateral US move could have unforeseeable consequences.
"Absent international authorization, the United States acting alone would be stepping into a situation whose consequences are unforeseeable," Clinton told a congressional panel, adding that many in the international community remained ambivalent over Libya strategy.
Clinton added that the United States remains concerned over Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's remaining chemical weapons as well as "other nasty stuff" he might have in his arsenal.
