Does this mean Obama is the new war time president? With Osama bin Laden, American born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and Qaddafi gone, did this make Obama a hero? Did Obama realize the consequences of getting rid of Egyptian President Mubarak and Col. Muammar Qaddafi? I guess not. Obama is still looking at his crystal ball for answers. Not only did Obama brought uncivil strife in the Middle East, it will destabilize the region and introduce many radical Islamic states in the region. Congratulation Mr. Obama for destroying the US Economy and screwed up Foreign policy. It may be far fetch, but I really believe Obama is the devil in disguised.
(NY Times) MISURATA, Libya — Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s last moments Thursday were as violent as the uprising that overthrew him.
In a cellphone video that went viral on the Internet, the deposed Libyan leader is seen splayed on the hood of a truck and then stumbling amid a frenzied crowd, seemingly begging for mercy. He is next seen on the ground, with fighters grabbing his hair. Blood pours down his head, drenching his golden brown khakis, as the crowd shouts, “God is great!”
Colonel Qaddafi’s body was shown in later photographs, with bullet holes apparently fired into his head at what forensic experts said was close range, raising the possibility that he was executed at the hands of anti-Qaddafi fighters.
The official version of events offered by Libya’s new leaders — that Colonel Qaddafi was killed in a cross-fire — was not supported by the photographs and videos that streamed over the Internet all day long, raising questions about the government’s control of the militias in a country that has been divided into competing regions and factions.
The conflicting accounts about how he was killed seemed to reflect an instability that could consume Libya long after the euphoria fades about the demise of Colonel Qaddafi, who ruled Libya for nearly 42 years and is the first of the autocrats to be killed in the Arab Spring uprisings.
