How can NATO help track down Gadhafi?

As rebel forces take control of the Libyan capitol city of Tripoli, one question remains: Where is Moamaar Gadhafi?

Brooke Baldwin posed this question and several others to former NATO supreme commander Gen. Wesley Clark, who discussed NATO's effort in finding Gadhafi.

Whatever district of Tripoli Moamaar Gadhafi is in, Clark says, the rebels must be organized if they hope to break through the stronghold Gadhafi has in place. Clark also talks about what kind of help NATO could provide to the rebels, the remaining stockpiles of mustard gas Gadhafi forces have and what must be done to secure them.

    Obviously he is in hiding and won't come out. He is no longer in control so just let it be. You got your country back make good of it and enjoy the rest of you lives.

    instead of worring about libya and gadhafi why doesn't the u.s. track down the trillions that have been stolen by the banks and wall street crooks. Libya was a well run country with good jobs, free education and free health care,
    now it is a basket case thanks to nato. The u.s. has just created another mess like we did in iraq, afghanistan and pakistan. Gadhafi was fine for 40 years now he is unacceptable because he is trying to put down a rebellion started and supported by nato and obama. The u.s. killed a millon people in iraq, and spent 3 trillion but we still don't get it.

    Common sense would seem to say that he is either in or under the hotel where the journalists are. With everything going on they kept security on that building, and given their track record, I can't believe it was out of concern for the Western journalists. It has been guarded and protected. It would not be on any NATO strike list. It's in close proximity to Kadhafi's compound, which would make underground tunnels between the two very feasible and it's where Saif showed up. Also right after Saif appeared electricity was restored to the building and again, I don't think the comfort of the journalists is their primary consideration.
