Rebels in Libya Planning Major Assault

There were previous reports that Gaddafi left Libya. The Washington Post reports rebels are forming an attack on Gaddafi's compound.

Anti-Gaddafi rebels, who have spent months quietly organizing for this moment, are now within a mile and a half of Gaddafi’s Bab al-Aziziya compound and are hoping to launch an assault on the headquarters as soon as rebel reinforcements arrive, said an activist who uses the name Tony.

“We’re waiting for our brothers to get here from the west, and if they get here tonight then tonight’s our night,” he said. “We are beating this dog.”

Reports are that President Obama was pulled out of his golf game to be briefed about the latest events in Libya. This sounds big. The question is if Gaddafi is still in the country?

Update: the rebels will not attack if Gaddafi and his sons leave the country.
