Col. Muammar Qadhafi told the people's congress of Libya that he is not the political leader but the "moral authority" and, therefore, has nothing to step down from. The congress, which was established in 1977, gathered this morning to commemorate its anniversary. Qadhafi came to the meeting to remind the congress that its members have the political power because they make the laws. Despite the United States urging Qadhafi to step down, the Libyan leader is standing his ground. Meanwhile, the Libyan capital of Tripoli is slowly returning to normal, and CBS reports that many of the people there support Qadhafi.
