Kidal 'liberated?'

Moussa Ag Assarid, spokesperson for the MNLA and darling of the French Press has just announced that the MNLA have taken control of Kidal as well as another smaller northern town, and that they are willing to negociate with the Malian Goverment and the coalition. They moved in and seized the town without any opposition, he claimed.
This is very opportun for the MNLA, who have been sidelined by the Ansar Dine and other extremists groups for many months. What will the Coalition forces do? Will they listen or will they contimue and wrest control over Kidal from the MNLA?
It is would be a good idea perhaps to remember before welcoming with open arms  the MNLA, that they were the ones who got us into this mess in the first place. They were the ones who invited the Jihadist groups to fight on their side. Personally I do not trust them...but of course they are an improvement on the other groups because they do not want to promote Sharia, but only an independent Azawad.
