NATO Airstrike May Have Hit Gadhafi’s Convoy

The latest AP reports out of Libya say that it was a NATO strike may have killed Gadhafi. We’ve got calls in to the Pentagon. More to come.

From the AP:

Libya’s information minister said Moammar Gadhafi was killed Thursday when revolutionary forces overwhelmed his hometown, Sirte, the last major bastion of resistance two months after the regime fell. Amid the fighting, a NATO airstrike blasted a fleeing convoy that fighters said was carrying Gadhafi.

    This is sickening. Nato was not supposed to kill him. This just shows how things are really going down in Libya. A de facto Western war against an old enemy, turned friend, turned enemy. Who is next, Chavez?

  • Foreign.Guy

    Ack, I really think they should have left this business to the Libyans. It would have best if we didn’t assassinate him. Rather let the Libyans let him stand trial or execute/assassinate him on their own. Where else would he have gone?

    Give this a few days to get the information sorted out. Earliest reports rarely have the full story.

    We’re not here for your oil or regime change… We came to help the people. Just ask Seria / Yemen / Africa… ummm… I mean… ahhh… well damn, Gaddafi was bad boy & didn’t play nice, so remember Libiyans, if you nationalize your resources, we will be back. Yeah military coalition capatalism!

    From what I heard, Gadaffi survived an airstrike on his convoy and took shelter in a sewer pipe under the road. The rebels fired rounds into the pipe which repeatedly struck his legs, and he died of blood loss from those injuries.

    Best thing about the Obama administration. It shows that even when America goes insane and elects a socialist radical like Obama, we still will bomb foreign capitals and assassinate foreign leaders.

    How many countries is Obama currently bombing now? Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Libya, Uganda, Yeman. That’s at least 7 off the top of my head. And there’s probably more.

    Obama is a stuttering clusterstuck of a miserable failure at economic policy, but I gotta give him credit — he sure does like blowing up foreigners. Especially Islamic ones.

    Didn’t old Gadaffi have a ton of decoys? Why would the real Gadaffi be hanging around while rebels overran the place?

    What happened to the loyalist forces anyway? We’ve all seen the photos and videos of the rebels driving around and blindly firing rockets from technicals, they aren’t exactly an elite fighting force. I’m surprised the loyalists broke and ran so easily.

    Sure looked like Kdaffy in the youtube l looked at. Also sure looked like plain ol bullet holes in his head as well.

    Good creep one is dead watch Al-Qaeda take over since alot of the rebels where Al-Qaeda fighter.

    There is no room for misfits in the worlds uniform financial order. Gaddafi was a misfit and had to pay the penalty for his arrogance. Only team players can survive, Gaddafi was warned to cool it, but he decided to fight rather than bow to the needs of international profiteers.

    Chalk another one up for the good guys.

    I hope whoever comes next isn’t worse.

    It is a failed policy of obama and nato to remove kaddafi. He can only be controlled when he has something to fear, not when he had nothing to loose. The thousands MANPADs and other weapons are probably now in the terrorists’ hands that could be unimaginably destructive to the free world.
