Secy. Clinton Recognizes Libyan Rebels as Official Govt of Libya

The Associated Press reports:

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the Obama administration has decided to formally recognize Libya’s main opposition group as the country’s legitimate government. The move gives foes of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi a major financial and credibility boost.
 
Clinton announced Friday that Washington accepts the Transitional National Council as the legitimate governing authority of the Libyan people.
 
Diplomatic recognition of the council means that the U.S. will be able to fund the opposition with some of the more than $30 billion in Gadhafi-regime assets that are frozen in American banks.
