It's no big secret the Muslim Brotherhood was heavily involved in the revolution, Barack Obama's opinion of the Brotherhood aren't helpful. He's either blind to their history or he believes he really is a Messiah, capable of changing them... Either way it's a problem. They've been a terrorist organization since the 1920s, historically the only Western Government they ever came close to aligning themselves with was Adolph Hitlers Nazi Germany.. Like Hitler they hated the Jews, French and England, it they could help the Nazis eliminate all three, they were happy to help..

Heavy fighting and gun battles have broken out in areas of Tripoli after opposition fighters gained control overnight of much of the Libyan capital in their battle to end Muammar Gaddafi's decades-long rule.
Clashes erupted on Monday after tanks left Bab Azaziya, Gaddafi's compound in Tripoli, to confront the rebel assault Many of the streets in the centre of the city, where anti-government supporters had celebrated hours earlier, were abandoned as pockets of pro-Gaddafi resistance and the presence of snipers and artillery fire made the area dangerous. Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr, who advanced into the city with rebel fighters overnight, said the security situation in the city was "tenuous." "There are some Gaddafi forces still putting up a fight," our correspondent said.
In other developments: Gaddafi's two eldest sons are in custody. Saif al-Islam, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court, was arrested in a village in western Tripoli and Mohammed surrendered to rebel forces and spoke to Al Jazeera shortly afterwards.
US President Barack Obama says momentum against Gaddafi has reached a tipping point as world leaders heralded a "new beginning" for Libya. Throughout the night, euphoric Libyan rebels moved into the centre of Tripoli and thousands of jubilant civilians rushed out of their homes to cheer the long convoys of pickup trucks packed with fighters shooting in the air.
