SIRTE, Libya — Deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi died of wounds suffered in his capture near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, a senior National Transitional Council military official and a government minister said.

..The military official, Abdel Majid Mlegta, had told Reuters earlier that Gadhafi was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn on Thursday as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes had attacked.

"He was also hit in his head," said Mlegta. "There was a lot of firing against his group and he died."

Asked if there was photographic evidence to prove that Gadhafi was dead, Mlegta said: "We have the footage but it is not available now."

If you read the comments, the Dems are claiming they have killed more bad guys in 3 years than Bush & the Reps in 8 :p ..

It is still unclear whether he is actually dead ...

I always thought he would surrender and spend the last years of his life deposed in France or some country with lenient extradition policies.

I heard he was captured.
Wana, if Kadhafi spends his last years in France, it will not be in a duplex near the Mediterranean.
Politics here wants him to be judge by the Libyans. (officially...)

In the video circulating, it looks like the Libyan rebels killed him not Obama.

But wait wait wait, remember Obama told everyone the USA is taking a backseat and letting the UK and France take the lead in Libya. Remember?

True true.

It was a joke gamer. And, no...I am not rewriting history.

This year seems to be going great just as I suspected.

LOL ^^

I am marveling at how the MSM is covering this. They are practically orgasmic.

Quite a contrast from the coverage Bush got when we ousted Hussein. And we even turned him over to the Iraqis for a "fair" trial even.

"Fair' meaning hanging right?

Welp, Gamer said "fair trial", not "fair sentencing". Hanging wasn't his trial, it was his sentence =p

... not to nitpick or anything!

I liked how he faked his daughters death for sympathy, what a guy
Oh, and that bad bad President Reagan, killing his daughter
October 22, 2011 2:52:46 PM

R^2 ''killed'' his daughter? wow...

Makes me look more sane!

Shes alive somewhere in Africa, he did this for sympathy
My Arab friends over the years had great disrespect for him, hoping he would someday go away.
October 22, 2011 3:42:55 PM

I thought he was African, not Arab?
October 22, 2011 7:13:57 PM

Hes Arab, as many Arabs are African, Morraco, Libya, Egypt, all Arab mostly, few blacks
October 22, 2011 8:13:21 PM

Umm yeah, Africa is a continent, not really a race.

I suppose you are correct there. Also, he did get a fair trial with a judge and everything. Don't you remember all the antics he pulled in court before they hung his ass?

American is not a race, Dogman.

I like what the French did. Shariah Law corrupts government.
