A top NATO commander says the U.S. Military role in Libya will be reduced "measurably" with other partners handling responsibilities.

Adm. James Stavridis told a House panel Wednesday that the ratio of airstrikes and flights is about 50-50, but over the next couple of weeks the United States will shift to an "enabler."

Stavridis said that of the 40 admirals and senior officers involved, only five are Americans. He said an Italian admiral is overseeing the arms embargo against Libya.
