After months of grueling battles, Libya’s rebels are closing in on Moammar Gadhafi’s Tripoli compound. Three of the despot’s sons have reportedly been captured, and President Obama declared Monday afternoon that Gadhafi’s regime is “coming to an end.” But Gadhafi himself has not been seen in public for months.
