NATO to take over Libya operation, U.S. to scale back 

NATO will take over military operations in Libya and allow for the U.S. to scale back its presence, according to the U.S. State Department. 

NATO members reached the agreement on Thursday following a conference call between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the foreign ministers of France, Britain and Turkey.

No details were provided on the nature or timeline of the transfer of leadership over the international mission.

The development is a positive one for the Obama administration, which has been under fire in Congress for taking a lead in launching airstrikes over Libya.
