U.S.: International court action shows Gaddafi lost legitimacy

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The International Criminal Court's issuance of an arrest warrant for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was another indication that he had lost his legitimacy, the White House said on Monday.

"It's another indication that Muammar Gaddafi has lost his legitimacy," White House spokesman Jay Carney said.
