President Speaks About Libya

President Barack Obama says the situation in Libya remains fluid and uncertain. But he says longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi's nearly 42-year-old regime is coming to an end.

After a five month NATO-led bombing campaign, Obama said the situation in Libya reached a tipping point in recent days. However, Obama says there are elements of the regime that remain a threat.

Libyan rebels are claiming control of most of the capital city of Tripoli. However, U.S. officials say Gadhafi's whereabouts remain unknown.

Obama spoke from his rented vacation home in Martha's Vineyard, Mass.
