(First off: I take everything with a grain of salt..) I’m not saying he is dead or alive, I’m not sure what to think of the conflicting stories about Gaddafi’s death.. I knew this day would come eventually, but the sad thing about his death is that Libya will never be the same! Here is some interesting facts about Libya and what Gaddafi has done for his people: Free Healthcare, Homes are considered a basic human-right! Also newly married couples get $50,000 for a new house.. This might be the best thing of all; loans have 0% interest by law! Back in 1951, Libya was the poorest country in the world and had the highest standard of living in Africa! So why did people want him out of office? Well my idea either that our government was telling the Libyan people they could have ‘freedom’ or that the people don’t know their own countries history, or what it was like before Gaddafi.. I have written two articles about Gaddafi and Libya. Libya Unrest: Disinformation and Gaddafi Is Not Bad As Our Government Wants You To Think… Now those two links have a lot of great information about what he has done for Libya and the lies surrounding this ‘revolution.’ Those links above and below make me think the death of Gaddafi is nothing but a lie much like the death of Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden.
Nothing is final and confirmed until they do a DNA test on Gaddafi’s body.. (IMO) There is no solid evidence yet that Gaddafi is still alive or dead. There has been many reports of Gaddafi (And dictators alike) having ‘body doubles‘ that are completely identical. Now could the rebels mistaken a double for Gaddafi? Possibly but like I said, a DNA test or fingerprints would confirm this story and put all the conspiracies to a rest.. (Including this article) I also find it interesting that many media sources have a different story about how he died (See third video below).. I’m pretty sure, the images that the MSM has released looks nothing like Gaddafi! (Even CNN admits it) I also find it really weird that Hillary Clinton went to Libya right before he died.. Coincidence? Do some more digging on the internet, a lot of forums and other websites have more information regarding his death.. I’m not telling you to believe a conspiracy theory but to question what the Mainstream Media gives you.. Here is the picture that is being released, along with different quotes from MSM articles:
Libya: No confirm Gadhafi Captured in Sirte Fall
Libyan officials and NATO say they cannot confirm reports from revolutionary fighters that ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was captured or killed in the fall of his hometown Thursday.
The Misrata Military Council, one of multiple command groups for revolutionary forces, says its fighters captured Gadhafi in Sirte. Another commander, Abdel-Basit Haroun, says Gadhafi was killed when an airstrike hit a convoy trying to flee.
The spokesman for Libya’s transitional government, Jalal al-Gallal, and its military spokesman Abdul-Rahman Busin say the reports have not been confirmed. A NATO official also said the alliance could not independently confirm. Repeated past reports of Gadhafi family deaths or captures have later proved incorrect.
Gaddafi Body Being Taken To Secret Location: NTC Official
The body of deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is being taken to a location which is being kept secret for security reasons, a National Transitional Council official said Thursday.
Gaddafi died of wounds suffered Thursday as fighters battling to complete an eight-month-old uprising against his rule overran his hometown Sirte, Libya’s interim rulers 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.
U.S. checking reports of Gaddafi’s capture, death
U.S. officials on Thursday scrambled to check reports that deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had died after being captured near his hometown of Sirte following months of civil war.
Gaddafi was wounded in the head and legs as he tried to flee in a convoy that came under attack from NATO warplanes at dawn, a senior official with Libya’s National Transitional Council told Reuters.
A senior Obama administration official said the U.S. was working to confirm the reports.
“We’re working on it,” the official said.
Hillary Clinton Was There A Couple Days Before His Death (Weird)
Hillary Clinton details new aid package to Libya – Oct 18th
The Obama administration offered millions of dollars in new aid to Libya as secretary of state Hillary Clinton encouraged the country’s unsteady new leadership to commit to a democratic future free of retribution, and acknowledged in unusually blunt terms that the United States would like to see former dictator Muammar Gaddafi dead.
“We hope he can be captured or killed soon so that you don’t have to fear him any longer,” Clinton told students and others at a town hall-style gathering in the capital city.
Until now, the US has generally avoided saying that Gaddafi should be killed. US officials usually say they want to see him brought to justice, something Clinton also said during her daylong visit.
“I am proud to stand here on the soil of a free Libya,” Clinton said. “The United States was proud to stand for you in your fight for freedom and we will continue to stand with you as you continue this journey.”
She met with the leader of Libya’s Transitional National Council, Mahmoud Jibril, and offered about $11m in additional aid. The fresh aid boosts Washington’s contribution since the uprising against Gaddafi began in February to roughly $135m.
The new aid package includes medical aid for wounded fighters and additional assistance to secure weaponry that many fear could fall into the hands of terrorists. Aides said the money is meant partly as a pledge to ongoing US support during what will be a difficult passage to free elections and a new government after four decades of dictatorship.
10-21-11 UPDATE: Gaddafi Will Be Buried At Sea To Destroy Evidence
Col Gaddafi’s burial has been delayed by differences among Libyan officials about how to dispose of the body. Under Islamic tradition burial should have taken place as soon as possible. But Libya’s oil minister said the remains may be kept “for a few days”. (Did they have Osama for a few days as well?)
It is unclear whether the ex-leader will be buried in Sirte, where he was killed on Thursday, in Misrata where the body has been taken, or elsewhere.
Meanwhile Nato is expected to declare an end to its Libya campaign. French President Nicolas Sarkozy said the death of Muammar Gaddafi meant Nato’s military intervention had reached its conclusion.
They have said they will conduct a secret burial and there is some speculation that they might even try to bury him at sea, as al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was buried, to prevent any grave being turned into a shrine, she adds.
Oil Minister Ali Tarhouni told Reuters news agency that Col Gaddafi’s body was not going to be released from a morgue in Misrata for immediate burial. “I told them to keep it in the freezer for a few days… to make sure that everybody knows he is dead,” he said.
10-22-11 UPDATE: Gaddafi’s body put on display in shopping center
Muammar Gaddafi’s blood-streaked body was on display in a commercial freezer at a shopping centre on Friday as Libyan authorities argued about what to do with his remains and questions deepened over official accounts of the longtime dictator’s death. New video emerged of his violent, chaotic last moments, showing fighters beating him as they drag him away.
Nearly every aspect of Thursday’s killing of Gaddafi was mired in confusion, a sign of the difficulties ahead for Libya. Its new rulers are disorganized, its people embittered and divided. But the ruling National Transitional Council said it would declare the country’s liberation on Saturday, the starting point for a timetable that calls for a new interim government within a month and elections within eight months.
The top UN rights chief raised concerns that Gaddafi may have been shot to death after being captured alive. The fate of his body seemed tied up in squabbles among Libya’s factions, as fighters from Misrata – a city brutally besieged by Gaddafi’s forces during the civil war – seemed to claim ownership of it, forcing the delay of a planned burial on Friday.
Also muddled was the fate of Seif al-Islam Gaddafi, the only Gaddafi son who stayed in Libya and reportedly survived after his father’s Aug. 21 ouster. It appeared on Friday that he was still at large: some government ministers had said he was wounded and in custody in a hospital in the city of Zlitan, but a military official at the hospital, Hakim al-Kisher, denied he was there.
In Misrata, residents crowded into long lines to get a chance to view the body of Gaddafi, which was laid out on a mattress on the floor of an emptied-out vegetable and onions freezer at a local shopping centre. The body had apparently been stowed in the freezer in an attempt to keep it out of the public eye, but once the location was known, that intention was swept away in the overwhelming desire of residents to see the man they so deeply despised.
Men, women and children filed in to take their picture with the body. The site’s guards had even organized separate visiting hours for families and single men. “We want to see the dog,” some chanted.
Gaddafi’s 69-year-old body was stripped to the waist, his torso and arms streaked with dried blood. Bullet wounds in the chest, abdomen and left side of the head were visible. The bloody siege of Misrata over the summer instilled a particularly virulent hatred of Gaddafi there – a hatred now mixed with pride because he was captured and killed by fighters from the city.
