>Libyan rebels reclaim Misurata city center, credit NATO airstrikes


      Libyan rebels claimed Friday that they have recaptured the center of the besieged western city of Misurata, partly thanks to weeks of NATO airstrikes, and said they hoped deployment of U.S. armed Predator drones could help them drive Moammar Gaddafi’s forces out of the city completely.
Further east, in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), one of the strongest congressional proponents of U.S. military intervention in Libya, made an unannounced visit to assess the situation for himself and called the rebels his heroes.
