Topic - National Libyan Council
In Libya, the National Transitional Council (Arabic: المجلس الوطني الانتقالي, al-majlis al-waṭanī al-intiqālī) is a body formed by anti-Gaddafi rebels during the 2011 uprising. Its formation was announced in the city of Benghazi on 27 February 2011 and its intended purpose is to act as the "political face of the revolution". In some media outlets, the council is referred to as the "National Libyan Council" or the "Libyan National Council". On 5 March 2011, the council issued a statement in which it declared itself to be the "sole representative of all Libya". The council refers to the Libyan state as the Libyan Republic (Arabic: الجمهورية الليبية al-Jumhūriyya al-Lībiyya). - Source: Wikipedia
A decision by President Obama and NATO to use its militaries to aid rebels in Libya would have the alliance siding with factions that it does not fully understand and not knowing what type of government they would bring to Tripoli.
