It’s about time. The fact that we’ve allowed a mass murdering terrorist like this to survive so long is a stain on this country’s moral footing. Now the Lockerbie Bomber needs to be wiped from the Earth. So I guess this means now the war is over and we’ll leave the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida and Iran in charge? Another victory for Obama!
Col. Moammar Gaddafi, Libya’s eccentric and unpredictable leader for more than 40 years, who brought his oil-rich country to international pariah status, tried to restore it as a member in good standing in the global community and was ultimately deposed by a nationwide uprising, died Thursday in Sirte, his home town. His death was confirmed by Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril.
Col. Gaddafi had been in hiding since late August, when he fled his home in Tripoli as rebel fighters advanced. Fighting continued for two months, as pockets of his supporters put up fierce resistance in a few holdout towns, leading to speculation that he might be holed up in one of them. He was believed to be 69 years old when he died, although his exact birthdate was not known, and at his death, had been one of the world’s longest-serving rulers.
