Libyan Rebels Are Now Official

On Friday, the Obama administration, along with more than 30 other countries, officially recognized Libya's main opposition group as a legitimate government. The decision also declared the regime of longtime ruler Moammar Gadhafi illegitimate and urged him and members of his family to leave. The move frees up more than $30 billion of the Gadhafi regime's frozen assets in American banks for use by the rebels.
