Here's the thing. The history book is written by the winning side. If the rebels win, (and let's hope that doesn't lead to a bigger crackpot than ghadafi), they did the right thing. If they did the wrong thing, there's a good chance that they could face a firing squad...or WORSE. Either way, at least they didn't sit on the fence, and handwring abbout it. They took the initiative, and did what they thought was right, probably all too aware of what being on the wrong side would bring them. Good grief, man, it's a REVOLUTION, and let's hope that a nation of people gets a better government out of the deal. They'd be stuck forever, if they had to listen to everyone whine about "I wonder what the legal implications are?" Stealing airtime for your own private gain, is something to ask that question of.

It would be very good to read an very technical article describing the way they did this. I don't exactly understand the legal implications behind this network recovery since basically what they did was to cut and re-route the communications but without the consent from the Col's ntwork,,, ,isn't this illegal? The WSJ article says they investigated the legal implications also.... mmm Quite interesting to know of this, I think we'll be hearing a little more soon.
