Gaddafi dead

Well apparently the Libyan revolution has bagged its bad guy:

Al Jazeera has acquired exclusive footage of the body of Muammar Gaddafi after he was killed in his hometown, Sirte.

Abdul Hakim Belhaj, an NTC military chief, said Gaddafi had died of his wounds after being captured near Sirte on Thursday.

The body of the former Libyan leader was taken to a location which is being kept secret for security reasons, an NTC official said.

"Gaddafi’s body is with our unit in a car and we are taking the body to a secret place for security reasons," Mohamed Abdel Kafi, an NTC official in the city of Misrata, told Reuters.

Earlier, Abdel Majid, another NTC official, said the toppled leader had been wounded in both legs.

A photograph taken on a mobile phone appeared to show Gaddafi heavily bloodied, but it was not possible to confirm the authenticity of the picture.

The news came shortly after the NTC captured Sirte, Gaddafi’s hometown, after weeks of fighting.

"Thank God they have caught this person. In one hour, Sirte was liberated," a fighter in the town said.

Now comes the hard part – keeping the “revolution” out of the “Islamic extremist” ditch.

Cue the Muslim Brotherhood …

  • Rot in hell, terrorist, murdering ba*tard….

  • At last, PAN-AM (RIP) has been avenged.

  • It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future. — Yogi Berra

    These guys were only off by a few months

  • I now expect to see a big “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” banner in the background at O’s next speech. The future is bright and shiny with a new liberal democratic government for Libya, and I am certain there will be no difficulty in accounting for all those missing MANPADs. What, me worry?

    • God willing, baby Asaad in Syria is the next one dragged in front of the mob.

    • Drudge has up …  PEACE PRIZE PREZ SPIKES BALL IN ROSE GARDEN

      • Like Obama, Biden applauded the U.S. decision to seek broad international backing for the Libya mission.
        “In this case, America spent $2 billion total and didn’t lose a single life. This is more of the prescription for how to deal with the world as we go forward than it has been in the past,” Biden said during a speech in Plymouth, N.H.”

        Wow, think of the number of rapes and robberies we could have prevented if we’d given that $2 billion to the police and teachers of America Joe.  So, really we may have lost many lives and there may have been many rapes – we can probably score this under Rapes and killings NOT prevented.

        I won’t miss Khadafi, but these tools and their posturing make me ill.
         

        • “In this case, America spent $2 billion total and didn’t lose a single life”

          Took a few lives, though.
          But Wogs don’t count, of course.

  • Will Libya’s next gadfly be worst than the last? it seems Mideast power structure gravitates towards the most aggressive, iron-fisted, malevolent, tough guy. Must be something in the water.

  • Taking the risk of sounding like an idiot…that corpse had a nose job since the last time I saw it.

  • So what now?  Does Libya evolve into a country that is an asset to the world or fall into chaos and become another Afghanistan?  Will it become a haven for terrorist and terror activity?

    “Now comes the hard part – keeping the “revolution” out of the “Islamic extremist” ditch.”

    You are right Bruce and I wonder if any in this administration has a plan.

  • I guess all those Khadafi supporters taken prisoner by the forces of truth and justice can be released now. Oh, they all died fighting to the last bullet, you say? Just like ‘dafi? How convenient.

  • And in highlights from today’s news, Muammar Gaddafi is still dead.

  • We’ll, we can say “thirty” too this tyrant, all that is left to do is cut out his heart and sh*t in the cavity. END!
