US Moving Two Destroyers to Libya

Two US Navy warships are moving towards the coast of Libya, two US officials tell CNN. The destroyers are the USS Laboon and the USS McFaul. Both ships are equipped with tomahawk missiles that could be used if a strike was ordered. Tomahawks are satellite-guided cruise missiles that can be programmed to hit specific targets.

"These ships will give the administration flexibility," a senior official said, if the administration orders action against targets in Libya.
