Muammar Gaddafi Seeks to Strike a Deal

Muammar Gaddafi continues to attack Libyan rebels with air strikes, but he may be feeling significantly less confident than the offensive would indicate: Opposition officials confirm to CNN reports that Gaddafi has offered to step down if they will consider him safe passage out of the country and agree not to prosecute him or his family. While it appears rebels had originally rejected his offer, their leadership now tells AFP that it would not pursue criminal charges if Gaddafi leaves the country at once.
