    “The violence must stop. Moammar Gadhafi has lost legitimacy to lead, and he must leave," the president said. "Those who perpetrate violence against the Libyan people will be held accountable.”
    Obama: Gadhafi 'Must Leave' | News | English

    Has the US dropped this policy? If so why?

    It was kinda why I was asking what has changed from a few weeks ago when the US position was "Gaddafi must leave"?
    The UN resolution, that's what have changed from a few weeks ago.

    Without air strikes against Gaddafi's ground forces to aid the rebels this will all be for nothing. Especially if Gaddafi is allowed to stay in power.

    Hopefully deliberate attacks against his loyal ground forces will increase/begin soon.

    BTW UN 1973 authorizes the use of force against Gaddafi's ground units.

    Exactly. Like when those civilians are being slaughtered with tanks and artillery.

    It sure is.

    That the very body that gave Gaddafi a seat on the UNHRC is now determining US foreign policy is quite a change. Not for the better.

    The US must have been happy with the UN resolution 1973 otherwise it would have been vetoed. You are aware the US is one of a very few with that power. If not, check the last resolutions concerning Israel.

    I don't care if the UN has authorized the removal of Gaddafi or not.

    The US has stated its position is that "Gaddafi must leave" and I have not heard that has been rescinded.

    So the statements and policies of the US President don't matter anymore if the UN doesn't pre-approve them?
