Libya in Crisis: Gadhafi to Rebels: 'Bring It On'


The Hunt for Moammar Gadhafi

Also found was an alleged letter between Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich -- who opposed the war -- and one of Saif al-Islam Gadhafi's aides. He was purportedly looking for evidence of corruption among the NTC and evidence of al Qaeda links.

Kucinich denied writing the letter, telling The Atlantic: "I can't help what the Libyans put in their files ... Any implication I was doing anything other than trying to bring an end to an unauthorized war is fiction."

The rebels received several needed boosts on Thursday, including the capture of Gadhafi's foreign minister Abdul Ati al-Obeidi and long-sought recognition by the Russian government. Some $220 million in cash also arrived in the rebel capital of Benghazi shortly before France announced it would unfreeze $2.16 billion in Libyan assets, money sorely needed to stabilize the country.

A high-level conference to discuss Libya's future starts in Paris Thursday, with French President Nicholas Sarkozy, British Prime Minister David Cameron and American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton among the attendees.
