Though the revolution against Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi has no set leader, rebels in Benghazi have set up a provisional government in a courthouse.

U.S. wants to know who's in charge of Libyan revolution
U.S. efforts to identify the leaders of Libya's revolution and their long-term goals yield no clear answers. The push comes as the U.S. is trying to determine how to provide humanitarian relief and whether to assist Moammar Kadafi's foes.
"There are a lot of disparate views out there," sighed a senior administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive diplomacy. Many of the figures who appear to be calling the shots in Libya "are really obscure," the official said. "And they really don't know yet what they want to do."
