US, Britain say Kadhafi compound legitimate target
US and British defense chiefs said Tuesday Moamer Kadhafi's compound represented a "legitimate" target, a day after NATO warplanes bombed the Libyan leader's site.
"We have considered all along command and control centers to be a legitimate target and we have taken those out elsewhere," Defense Secretary Robert Gates told reporters after talks with his British counterpart, Liam Fox.
Fox endorsed the US defense secretary's comments.
