Clinton says Libyans have spoken, Gaddafi must go

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Saturday the people of Libya had spoken and leader Muammar Gaddafi must go.

“We have always said that the (Gaddafi) government’s future is a matter for the Libyan people to decide, and they have made themselves clear,” Clinton said in a statement, echoing a harder stance against the Libyan leader by U.S. President Barack Obama.

“(Muammar Gaddafi) has lost the confidence of his people and he should go without further bloodshed and violence.”
