You mentioned in your post earlier.. before the edit .. that gaddafi was claimed to be alive in not so well in cuba. Is that what was rrally said? If so thats interesting. Very interesting. Its clear there are some major cover ups going on in libya, you seem to be ahead of thr game on all of this. Care to talk aboit libya on this slow news day?
On the first day of to GITMO trial (going on now), one of the defendants said (my memory of the English translation) "They claim the era is Gaddafi is over..Gaddafi is here with us in Guantanamo....They are probably going to kill me for saying this...you won't see me again..."
I was following BBC's continuous coverage....There were several media sites that reported the outburst....(just the words said, no interpretation)
Later in the day, all of the coverage changed to say the defendant was complaining about living conditions in GITMO - he was stating that living in GITMO was like living under a dictatorship....
When I've looked at the situation in the Middle East, I've vacillated between despair (the West is utterly incompetent) and a faint hope that possibly there is an enlightened grand plan (I'm just not in on it)...
Taking Gaddafi alive would have been proof of an enlightened grand plan. Think of all the intelligence that could come out of that debriefing (Marxists, Islamists, PLO, Baathists, IRA Terrorists, Russian Mobsters, Gaddafi knew them all)...
I'll look for a link on the outburst...
I found this on a G**rdian Blog from May 6, 2012 (no link b/c of source)
12.07pm: After hours of silence from the defendants, we have just had an outburst from one of the suspects.
Ramzi Bin al-Shibh, accused of helping facilitate the 9/11 attack, began ranting about the former Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, Chris McGreal reports from Fort Meade.
He went on to tell the court: "Maybe you are not going to see me anymore".
The judge said it was his choice whether to attend or not, to which the terror suspect replied that he had been misunderstood.
"It's about the threats we receive at the camp," he said. The defendant added: "Maybe they are going to kill us and say that we are committing suicide."
(This is the edited version of the outburst - no Gaddafi is here)
Here's another account of the outburst...
Al-Shibh was the only one to speak. He interrupted an exchange between his lawyer and Pohl with comments on Muammar Gaddafi. When Pohl told him to be quiet, he continued in broken English, saying:
“Maybe they will kill me and say I committed suicide. Maybe you are not going to see me any more. This is the way that we are treated in this camp.”
