NATO or The North Atlantic Treaty Organization takes over the command of Operation Odyssey Dawn in Libya as US President Obama honors his statement of limiting participation in Libya. This was reported by international news sites, March 24, 2011.

Fogh Rasmussen, NATO secretary general has announced that the members of the NATO are committed to implement the no-fly zone as a UN resolution. This follows as Libya is attacked by the UN coalition forces when Gaddafi refused to comply with it.  The coalition was trying to protect the anti-government forces in Benghazi whom Gaddafi vowed to show “no mercy”.

There are no plans of deploying ground troops however by the US. This dissipated the doubts of some Americans.  The previous attacks came from the air and from ships strategically located at specified points in the globe.
