Tag Archives: Gaddafi

Richard Engel of NBC news tweeted today that Gaddafi was reported to have fled along with his sons by Libya’s state run TV. If it turns out to be true, that would be a welcome sign as the struggle for the freedom of the Libyan people comes to an end.

I noticed that it has also been on Twitter that the rebels have taken the Tripoli Airport. If so that is another good sign. Gaddafi has shown he is among the worst of tyrants.

One point of disappointment lies in the fact that American news media has paid little to no attention to the developments. I turned on CNN and there was little coverage of it. Perhaps that explains why people are turning to online news more and more.

Of course it remains to be seen how the Libyan Transitional Council will go the course and implement real democracy there. Lets hope so.
