Gaddafi defenses "severely disabled": U.S. official

Muammar Gaddafi's air defenses have been 'severely disabled' by a barrage of U.S.-led missile strikes launched on Saturday, a U.S. national security official said.

"Qaddafi's air defense systems have been severely disabled. It's too soon to predict what he and his ground forces may do in response to today's strikes," the source said on condition of anonymity.
