Gideon Rose, who was a national security adviser under former US president Bill Clinton, says the US administration has no exit plan for its military intervention in Libya.

While officials believed they could easily put a stop to reported massacres carried out by Muammar Gaddafi's forces, Rose says the longer term issues stemming from removing Gaddafi from power will require further US involvement.

He spoke to Al Jazeera about the risks of US action in Libya on March 31.
