Another high-ranking Libyan official has defected and fled the country amid a widening NATO campaign of bombings. A tenacious guy, that Gadhafi!… One wonders what plans he has made for the inevitable end.
‘This is a painful and heartbreaking time. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal.’
No mention of his wife there. Not much concern for her trying to rebuild hers and it’s only ‘my children and I’.
