Libyan rebels hunt Gadhafi, try to secure Tripoli

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Libyans hunting Moammar Gadhafi offered a $2 million bounty on the fallen dictator's head and amnesty for anyone who kills or captures him as rebels battled Wednesday to clear the last pockets of resistance from the capital Tripoli.
While some die-hard loyalists kept up the fight to defend Gadhafi, his support was crumbling by the hour. His deputy intelligence chief defected, and even his foreign minister said his 42-year rule was over.
A defiant Gadhafi vowed from hiding to fight on "until victory or martyrdom," in an audio message early Wednesday.
He may have little choice. Asked by the British broadcaster Channel 4 if a negotiated settlement or safe passage for Gadhafi from Libya was still possible, Foreign Minister Abdul Ati al-Obeidi said: "It looks like things have passed this kind of solution."
Rebel leaders were beginning to set up a new government in the capital. Their interim administration, the National Transitional Council, has been based in the eastern city of Benghazi, which fell under rebel control shortly after the outbreak of widespread protests in February.
"Members of the council are now moving one by one from Benghazi to Tripoli," said Mansour Seyf al-Nasr, the Libyan opposition's new ambassador to France.
Rebel officials are eager to prove they can bring a stable political future to Libya, and that their movement is more than an often-fractious collection of tribes, ethnicities and semiautonomous militias. Mahmoud Jibril, the head of the opposition government, outlined plans for a new constitution and elections and said officials were talking to the U.N. about sending up to 200 monitors to help ensure security in Tripoli.
But the capital was far from pacified. A day after rebels captured Gadhafi's vast Bab al-Aziziya compound, the symbolic center of his regime, loyalists were firing into the compound from an adjacent neighborhood where intense clashes broke out. Pro-regime snipers cut off the road to the airport. Four Italian journalists were kidnapped on the highway to Tripoli around the city of Zawiya, 30 miles west of the capital.
Tripoli's streets were largely empty of civilians. Rebels manned checkpoints every few hundred yards, but little could be seen beyond the debris of days of fighting and weeks of accumulated garbage.
Rebels found no sign of Gadhafi after storming his compound Tuesday, but rumors churned of his possible whereabouts. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said there was no evidence he had left Libya, but rebel officials acknowledged they could not find him.
"He might be in Sirte or any other place," Jibril said in Paris, where he met French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Sirte, a coastal city 250 miles from Tripoli, is Gadhafi's hometown and a bastion of regime support.
Khaled al-Zintani, spokesman for the rebel military council for the western mountains, said it has set up an operations room with intelligence officers, military defectors and security officers who are trying to find Gadhafi, his family, regime members and his forces. They are collecting information on the location, size and direction of any convoys.
The operations center is in the western mountains, the staging base for the rebels who marched on Tripoli.
Mohammed al-Herizi, an opposition official, said a group of Tripoli businessmen has offered a $2 million reward for the arrest or killing of Gadhafi. The rebels themselves are offering amnesty for anyone who kills him or hands him over.
"The biggest prize is to offer amnesty, not to give money," rebel spokesman Col. Ahmed Bani said.
Gadhafi vowed not to surrender. Speaking to a local television channel, apparently by phone, he called on residents of the Libyan capital and loyal tribesmen to free Tripoli from the "devils and traitors" who have overrun it.
Al-Sadeq al-Kabir, a rebel spokesman, denied media reports that Gadhafi had offered a cease-fire.
The rebels have taken control of much of Libya with the help of a relentless NATO air campaign that included about 7,500 strike attacks against Gadhafi's forces. His defenses around Tripoli melted away as the rebels rapidly advanced and entered the capital Sunday.
Jibril said a commission created with members from around Libya would write a new constitution, which would be put up for a referendum. He didn't specify a timetable but said that once a constitution is adopted, elections for parliament would be held within the next four months, and its president would be Libya's interim leader until a presidential election sometime later.
"The mission of protecting civilians is not over," Jibril said. "The other bigger and more fierce battle has not started yet. It is the rebuilding of Libya."
In the postwar period, a new army will be created, he said, and the National Transitional Council planned "to call on all those who took up arms to join either the new army or the new police force that we will constitute in coming days."
The rebels said they also have an environment team that tries to detect bodies of combatants and clean the city of rotting animals.
Fighting continued, however, and not just in Tripoli. Jibril said pro-government forces were shelling a number of southern cities.
Residents of the port town of Zwara, about 70 miles west of the capital, said they had suffered through four days of shelling. All roads to the city had been cut off, and rebels said they were running low on supplies.
As they are routed elsewhere, Gadhafi's forces "take their revenge by shelling our town," Sefask al-Azaabi, a rebel, said by telephone. "We are appealing to the (rebel) military council to send us reinforcements or this town will be finished in no time."
In Tripoli, rebel fighters were using Gadhafi's captured compound as a staging area, loading huge trucks with ammunition and discussing deployments, but they had yet to control all of Bab al-Aziziya.
Pro-Gadhafi snipers repeatedly fired on the fighters from tall buildings in the Abu Salim neighborhood, a regime stronghold, rebel Mohammed Amin said.
He said the rebels had surrounded Abu Salim, home to the country's most notorious prison and scene of a 1996 massacre of protesting political prisoners, but had been unable to push into it. But late Wednesday night, al-Kabir, the rebel spokesman, said rebels released thousands of inmates from Abu Salim, many of them political prisoners who had been held there for years.
Matthew VanDyke, a writer from Baltimore missing since March in Libya, was among those who escaped, his mother said. VanDyke called her and said he had been held in solitary confinement, but fellow prisoners helped him escape to a compound where he borrowed a phone. He had traveled to Libya to write about the uprising against Gadhafi.
The State Department said Wednesday that all American citizens known to have been detained in Libya have been released.
A State Department spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, said in a statement that the families of those detained have been notified of their freedom and welfare. No further details were given.
The rebels claim they control the Tripoli airport but were still clashing with Gadhafi forces around it. Associated Press reporters said the road leading to the airport was closed because of heavy fire by pro-regime snipers.
Rebels said pro-Gadhafi forces to the south and northeast were firing rockets and shelling rebel positions inside the airport and had set a plane on fire.
Inside Gadhafi's compound, two young rebel fighters searched through a heap of pill packages in a building they said had served as a pharmacy. A broken TV, its screen shattered, lay on the ground in the courtyard. A dozen young fighters posed for pictures next to a gold-colored statue of a clenched fist squeezing a plane — a memorial to the 1986 U.S. airstrikes on the compound in retaliation for a bombing at a German disco frequented by U.S. servicemen.
The rebels also targeted other symbols of the regime, including the homes of some of Gadhafi's children.
About 200 people ransacked the beachfront villa of Gadhafi's son Saadi, driving off with four of his cars — a Lamborghini, a BMW, an Audi and a Toyota station wagon, said Seif Allah, a rebel fighter who joined in the looting, taking a bottle of gin and a pair of Diesel jeans.
After a five-hour gunbattle with guards, rebels also ransacked the mansion of Gadhafi's daughter Aisha.
Clothes and DVDs were strewn on the floor of the master bedroom, including a DVD about getting in shape after childbirth. In a sitting area, a gold-colored statue of a mermaid — a mermaid with Aisha's face — framed a sofa.
At the once-luxurious Rixos Hotel near Abu Salim and Bab al-Aziziya, dozens of foreign journalists were freed after being held captive for days by pro-government gunmen.
The hotel was where rotating tours of journalists had lived for the past six months, closely watched by government minders and taken on approved tours. But it became a de facto prison after the rebels swept into the city because a team of gunmen refused to let the journalists leave.
Heavy gunbattles had raged all around the hotel since Sunday, and a gunman even ran through the lobby at one point. Near-constant power outages left reporters without air conditioning in the sweltering summer heat, and in their final days at the Rixos they had to scrounge the hotel to find food and water.
As the rebels drew closer, most of the guards left, leaving just a pair of increasingly nervous gunmen. The journalists were suddenly freed Wednesday after the International Committee of the Red Cross stepped in to negotiate their release.

Chavez is a peasant equipped with a powerful oratory. At times inspirired and circus performer, ridicule is funny coming from the president, Forced!. He find a broth of poverty, using the mass media (newspaper, internet, radio or television) to reach the mass of the people. He connet to them and their hope and buy 55% of the venezuelan population of the electorate. The noble and poor people, not distinguish right from wrong. Had many excluded. Poor people. who are the mayority, are included in the economy, but there is a huge exclusion of non-associated with his proyect castro communist expansionist. The exeptional circunstances of the time it opened the way. He is the fourth most skillful player in the triad of liar's poker. It is the state that has money and natural resources that generate wealht, there is no real liberation of the economy, individuals and the common citizens are obliged to protetec under the goverment blackmails them. Chávez management barter economy. The word people, in the sense of poor is his deceit. This word is always in his mouth and uses it to manipulate. The rest makes his histrionics and the money of oil. It other, are venezuelans doing tricks with benefits, and he knows.

Images without words

Resources are not a tragedy, are weapons in the hands of a person seeking notoriety. Are elements of business to be in the spotlight. Promises to manipulate and hide his evil purposes. His ego pursues dreams of grandeur. Appears to be what is not. These resources are in danger and in the hands of a fraudster who wants to change the world. These hands are sick. This is shown by the Knol. Taken as a fool and  an idiot, they sell junk to him and he buys them (ally in the future?). His love for the peoples of the world is contradictory. Examples of cases: the Sudanese Presidente and King Mswati III in Africa Suazilandia. See below.

Chavez turns legality in illegality. Makes it quietly. As a surgeon who knows where to cut, Chavez was advice by Fidel Castro to keep fifty (50) years in power. Fidel Castro gave him the prescription: diagnosis, treatment pill, suppresion and extirpation. Chavez placed the charge to detonate in hot spots and vulnerable in the "Building of Democracy". The device in his hands pressed to convenience. The perversity and desire for power, go with he. Your guide and mentor Fidel Castro mocks the world, because there is evidence that free-market icon (democracy) is defeated from within, and its own entrails and their principles and values as arms and with a long-distance telephone. Osama Bin Laden is a child with such a strategy in the ligft of the democratic world.

Its inmediate damage is not worse than the indirect and collateral damage in the short, medium and long term effects on hundreds of thousands of people.

One of the hardest battles opens the door to Colonel complex, which remains hidden...

The rebels take Gaddafi's palace

Yesterday evening the rebels managed to finally Bab al Aziziya penetrate the fortified residential complex Gaddafi, after more than 24 hours of heavy fighting at the gates of same. The revolutionaries have reached the level of colonel in hiding, as he said he would do with the "rats" rebel Last February, when the revolt began
Los rebeldes entran en la residencia presidencial pero no encuentran al tirano ni a sus hijos, que podrían esconderse en el búnker del palacio, que tiene túneles que llegan al mar y autonomía para vivir dentro varios meses
August 23, 11                                - Benghazi                                               - Francesca Cicardi / Special Envoy
This is a dream come true for rebels, which the Arab network Al Jazeera showed celebrating in  the walls of the complex in the same location where Gadhafi used offer their challenging speeches.

Earlier, in Benghazi, a fighter admitted he thought REASON never make it, they did not have enough weapons to break into the fortified complex of the dictator. But NATO would once again helped the rebels bombed Bab al Aziziya yesterday Alliance though not confirmed and repeated, as it has many times in the past months, Qaddafi was a target.

The joy back to Benghazi

However, the Alliance claimed that his mission is over and continue bombarding the regime if necessary, while said not knowing where the colonel. Benghazi is speculation that he could be hidden in underground bunkers or Bab al Aziziya could have escaped through the tunnels that lead from the resort even to the border with Chad. But the whereabouts of the tyrant and not seem to matter and the rebel capital last night celebrating a new victory, firing into the air, explosions and the singing of the mosques thanking Allah the joy back to Benghazi after a day of disappointments and institutional silence after night reappear before the son of Gaddafi, Saif al-Islam in Tripoli denying reports that had been captured by the rebels. The National Transitional Council had confirmed that Saif was in his hands and yesterday offered no official explanation, while it was rumored that the colonel's son could have been released  in exchange for money, mistake of the rebels or by the Gaddafi help of spies infiltrated among them. Still, there was no trace of him or any member of the family when revolutionaries stormed the presidential palace.

But the war has not ended and the fighting continues in several areas of the capital, which is still under rebel control  and a member of the CNT admitted to this newspaper that can be a matter of  days or even weeks. Yesterday the rebel government was more cautious than the previous day after the incident and Saif suspecting that the colonel may still have some trick up his sleeve. The night before his forces launched SCUD missiles from Sirte, city Gaddafi's home, which has not yet been any attempt at rebellion. Perhaps this is the last base of the regime and the last battle  they will have to fight the rebels, who are heading fast in that direction after having unlocked the eastern front, after weeks of stagnation.

The revolutionary army took yesterday Ras Lanuf oil enclave,  as he claimed to reason its spokesman, Omar Ahmed Bany, with the intention to clear the way to the capital, which encounter Sirte. Last night Arab television Al Jazeera reported  the tribes in the area were willing to negotiate a surrender to avoid a bloodbath, which is what is feared may still have  in Tripoli, where they go for thousands of fighters from all rebel strongholds in the country including Benghazi, where every night hundreds of combatants toward a capital ship almost free.

Final 'inevitable'

The French President, Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack  Obama, agreed yesterday to keep the military effort "in support of Libyan authorities legitimate as long as necessary "until  Muammar Gaddafi and his forces hand over their weapons. Sarkozy and Obama yesterday held a 'long' phone conversation and, according to a statement from the French presidency, expressed their satisfaction with the  "Breakthroughs made in recent days by the forces of National Transition Council "and felt that the final scheme Gaddafi "is inevitable and is upcoming."

Both leaders expressed the objective is to build now "Libya new, democratic and pluralistic," for which will be useful organization in Paris of an international conference.

The tyrant in Tripoli says that resists
The Libyan dictator is alive and in Tripoli. In a telephone  bizarre, Gaddafi said yesterday his friend and president of the International Chess Federation, the Russian Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, not intends to leave the country. "I am safe and sound. I am in Tripoli and I have no intention to leave Libya. Are not created false information from Western television, "said Gaddafi. Ilyumzhinov stated that, with the dictator, is one of sons, Mohamed, who escaped last Monday of the forces rebels who held it. Apparently, the Russian chess player talks Mohamed also briefly on the fighting. Ilyumzhinov, who A few weeks ago he traveled to Libya to play a game of chess Gaddafi, the dictator said he was confident of victory. "I'm sure he will win," said Gaddafi.

Leftist leaders in Latin America should be ashamed of embracing Moammar Kadafi.

March 07, 2011|By Andrés Martinez
Hugo Chavez is trying to come to the rescue of his friend and fellow "colonel," Moammar Kadafi. The Venezuelan president has offered to mediate Libya's civil war, and warned against any foreign intervention in support of Libya's opposition, which now controls much of the east of the country, including the port of Benghazi, home of the Hugo Chavez soccer stadium. The Venezuelan government even railed against the move to oust Libya from the United Nations Human Rights Council because of Kadafi's violent crackdown on his own people.
The attempt by Chavez (winner of the Kadafi International Prize for Human Rights in 2004) to play a role in Libya's future is unlikely to amount to more than a Quixotic gambit, though it remains a distinct possibility that Kadafi could find himself a comfortable retirement home in Venezuela (some reports in the British news media already have one of his sons hiding out on Venezuela's Margarita Island). But Chavez's solidarity with Kadafi (whom he has compared to Simon Bolivar) speaks volumes about the fate of democracy and human rights in the region — in Latin America, that is.
Disturbingly, Chavez isn't Kadafi's sole ally in this hemisphere. Fidel Castro (Kadafi Prize, 1998) has long been a comrade in arms, and the Cuban Foreign Ministry has accused the United States and the Western news media of instigating the current violence in Libya.
And no world leader has been as bizarrely effusive about Kadafi in recent days as Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega (Kadafi Prize, 2009). The Sandinista leader has boasted of frequent calls with the Libyan leader, whom he described as waging a great battle to defend his people.
"I have transmitted to him the solidarity of the Nicaraguan people," he told a rally in Managua, even as the Libyan leader was unleashing foreign mercenaries against his own population.
The Latin American left's pathetic infatuation with Kadafi — a symptom of anti-imperialist solidarity run amok — shows the immaturity of Latin America's civil society and is a blow to democratic values everywhere.
Chavez has his flaws, and we should be worried about his Bolivarian revolution's cavalier relationship with the rule of law, but he is no Kadafi. Not even close. The strong bond between the colonels is their shared aversion for el imperio, and that anti-U.S. affinity bridges all other differences. Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's embrace of Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in recent years is an even more troublesome example of this dynamic, especially because Lula is by any other measure a man of impeccable democratic credentials. The point is that even he has to play this tiresome game: If you are on the side of "the people," that means you embrace certain rogues around the world who've stood up to the Yankees, starting with the Castro brothers in the region, and thugs such as Kadafi and Ahmadinejad farther afield.
We can only hope that the horrible images out of Libya will make this game harder to play. Latin leaders (of all ideological persuasions) have arrogantly considered foreign affairs their exclusive prerogative, divorced entirely from whatever constraints they face at home, and this excessive compartmentalization breeds moral blindness.
But blindness is harder in this age of instant global communications. Venezuelans see what is happening in Libya and are asking pesky questions about why their leader compared Kadafi to Bolivar and gave him a replica of their liberator's sword. And Nicaraguans have every right to ask why their collective solidarity is being offered to a despot intent on killing his own people.
Latin America has been fertile ground for the spread of democracy in recent decades. Its democracies have plenty of shortcomings, but compared with the rest of the world, Latin America as a region is the one part of the global south where democracy has made its deepest inroads.
