Obama: Those Around Gadhafi 'Will Be Held Accountable'

Saying he wanted to send a "clear message ... to those who are around Col. [Moammar] Gadhafi," President Obama just said that those who are with the Libyan leader have a "choice to make about how they operate moving forward and they will be held accountable" if the attacks on anti-government protesters continue.

The president spoke at the White House during a photo opportunity with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
