Qaddafi May Lash Out With New Terrorist Attacks (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/19/world/africa/19terror.htm?_r=2 - broken link)

"Asked if American officials feared whether Colonel Qaddafi could open a new terrorism front, Mr. Brennan said: “Qaddafi has the penchant to do things of a very concerning nature. We have to anticipate and be prepared for things he might try to do to flout the will of the international community.”

Among the threats the United States is focusing on is Libya’s stockpile of deadly mustard gas, he said."

Not more WMD's... Deja Vu?

This is sounding a lot like 2002 with Iraq.

If Qaddafi was found to be either responsible for the execution of a terrorist attack or connected to the planning of a terrorist attack it would be all the justification the United States would need to take him out.
