Cracks in Libya National Transitional Council

Misrata rebels (rather sensibly) are protesting a decision by the NTC to install a Gaddafi loyalist as head of security in Tripoli, saying if it happens, they will refuse to obey the NTC.

My take: civil war is coming to Libya. The NTC isn’t a real coalition, and the stress fractures are already showing. The clueless triumphalists who proclaimed victory in Libya even as fighting continued in Tripoli are akin to George “Mission Accomplished” Bush on that aircraft carrier.
