Rebels Take Gadhafi Compound

I'm just going to direct you towards CNN, or whatever network is airing Libya coverage for the moment. I'm watching Sara Sidner inside the Gadhafi compound in Tripoli, who can barely get a word in edgewise over all the celebratory gunfire. According to Sidner, the rebels have taken so much ammunition from Gadhafi, and they are so assured of victory, that they now feel free to waste ammo by firing it into the air.

This includes anti-aircraft missiles. Celebratory anti-aircraft missiles.

There is no sign yet of Gadhafi himself- he may have fled the country for all we know- but at this point, there does not appear to be much he could do anymore anyway.
