Inside Gadhafi’s Secret Underground Arsenal

Wired Magazine’s Danger Room blog fields a report from a correspondent in Benghazi, Libya where opposition forces have broken into an underground bunker of Col. Moammar Gadhafi.  The opposition forces found crates of weapons, ammo, and rockets.  Military members of Gahdafi’s regime that have defected to the opposition are organizing the population into an opposition army with plans to take on loyal regime forces in Tripoli.  Forces are reporting that they have organized up to 14,000 volunteers to fight.  The forces are preparing anti-aircraft weapons in anticipation of a fight for Tripoli.  Salem Abdelhassid El Dressy, a 41-year-old accountant who volunteered on Tuesday said:

I think there will be massive fighting if we go to Tripoli, I hope to god I am wrong, but I am ready to fight. We all want to go to Tripoli to get rid of Gadhafi.
