White House: Libyan's exit a 'major defection'
Gadhafi's government said Koussa had resigned but claimed that it was a personal decision driven by health problems.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday: "If there was ever a sign that the inner circle surrounding Moammar Gadhafi was crumbling, it was the defection of Moussa Koussa yesterday to the United Kingdom."
White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said Koussa can help provide "critical intelligence about Gaddafi's current state of mind and military plans."
