Disturbing video captures Qaddafi’s last moments; Update: Libyan rebel leader claims Qaddafi was killed in the, er, crossfire

posted at 2:15 pm on October 20, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Well, I guess this answers the question from earlier today as to whether Moammar Qaddafi was killed in an exchange of gunfire or as a prisoner of the former rebels. Assuming this footage is authentic, we see a bloodied but clearly alive Qaddafi, still recognizable despite the beating he has taken, trying to walk while in the grasp of his captors. The chaotic footage shows the mob trying to get at Qaddafi with their bare hands, with Qaddafi unable to resist, before the camera swings away towards fighters celebrating by shooting their weapons in the air.  Be sure to watch it now, if you want to at all, because it may not last long on YouTube (WARNING — graphic images):

This footage doesn’t exactly square with all of the explanations from this morning:

Early Thursday morning, reports started emerging out of Libya that former strongman Moammar Gadhafi had been killed in a NATO-led airstrike. Later in the day, opposition National Transitional Council leader and interim government prime minister Mustafa Abdel-Jalil confirmed reports of Gadhafi’s death, according to the Associated Press. NATO and the White House have yet to independently confirm the reports.

The NTC information minister told Reuters, “He was killed in an attack by the fighters. There is footage of that.” If the news is confirmed, the episode would make Gadhafi the first leader killed as a result of the Arab Spring uprisings, the Associated Press notes in its obituary of the leader, which it published at 10:53 EST.

Yahoo has some footage of the spot where the rebels seized Qaddafi, which looks like the same man and at least a similar crowd as in the clip above.

Technically, if the rebel forces represent the government, this would be a war crime, but I doubt anyone will gripe too much about a summary execution of a brutal dictator.  This is, after all, the traditional end for tyrants, from Julius Caesar to Benito Mussolini.  The rebels have to get more serious about discipline, however, because a mob army may end up turning on the leaders that replace the tyrants as well as the tyrants themselves.

Update (Allahpundit): It’s unclear from the clip whether they ended up executing him or whether he simply keeled over from the injuries he’d already sustained. But if you have the stomach for it, scroll down to the Telegraph’s 18:25 update for a photo of what looks like Qaddafi on the slab. He has a bullet hole in his left temple.

Update (Allahpundit): There’s no way his last words were, “What did I ever do to you?” He simply couldn’t have been that oblivious.

Update (Allahpundit): If you missed it in Headlines earlier, here’s footage apparently taken shortly after he was executed. Oddly, his face looks relatively clean here compared to the bloody mess in the video Ed posted up top. Also oddly, we now have video of the moments before and moments after the killing — but none of the killing itself. One would think that would have been the most prized among Libyan rebels.

Update (Allahpundit): Really, guys? Every news channel in the world is airing footage of Qaddafi being dragged off the back of a pick-up truck by shrieking rebels and this is the storyline they’re sticking with?

Moammar Gadhafi was killed in the crossfire of a battle between his supporters and fighters loyal to the opposition that topped the dictator’s regime, Libya’s interim prime minister told NPR this afternoon.

“Nobody can tell if the [fatal] shot was from the rebel fighters or from his own security guard,” Interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril told All Things Considered host Robert Siegel…

According to Jibril, Gadhafi “did not show any resistance” at first. But as “freedom fighters” were taking him into custody, “he came under crossfire from both sides.”

Gadhafi was not executed by the fighters who captured him, Jibril told Robert.

So that video I posted of rebels whooping it up while Qaddafi was bleeding into the ground was actually recorded while they were … taking heavy fire from Qaddafi loyalists? Alrighty then.

bridgetown on October 20, 2011 at 4:09 PM

Bridgetown is so morally superior to us, because a serious and deep moral pose is just so much more cool. Being morally inferior, I am glad that Qaddafi died as he did–with the display of cowardice and not with the grace with which Marie Antoinette went to her execution. It’s good to see the tyrant undressed that way at their death.

Of course, we don’t want the rough justice to spread too far. I would limit mob violence to only the dictator. His relatives and aides should be given trials. We don’t things to descend into a Reign of Terror. My position is similar to Churchill’s for the end of the World War II. Churchill made mature moral judgments.

thuja on October 20, 2011 at 4:30 PM

You missed the flag that the ref threw for unsportsmanlike conduct. Not sure which side the call was against, but the video is actually both sides arguing over the call. Shortly after the video finished play resumed and KDaffy, on 4th and long with no time left on the clock, fumbled the snap and ended up at the bottom of pile.

One of KDaffy’s sons wanted the play reviewed, but you can’t ask for a review inside of two minutes.

I don’t mean to sound righteous, it’s just disturbing that it came to this when we probably could have prevented it. I would much rather Qaddafi faced charges for his crimes and his victims got some justice. Our troops took down Sadam and justice was done in a civil manner. Drones don’t solve every problem.

bridgetown on October 20, 2011 at 3:43 PM

I think you have a point. We need to combat terrorism by demonstrating that civilization > savagery. Celebrating the death of a man, however odious, at the hands of a riotous mob doesn’t seem to demonstrate the point to me.

I’m glad Gaddafi is out of the picture. Not really feeling the need to celebrate though. Maybe I’d feel differently if any of my family or friends were killed by the guy, but then I had a friend at the WTC and didn’t feel like celebrating OBL’s demise either.

JohnTant on October 20, 2011 at 3:59 PM

I honestly don’t think either of you have a point. Taken in context, what happened here is exactly what should be happening all over the ME. This isn’t hometown America, this is a brutal land where most of the folks understand only one thing. Power. And most of them don’t have it.

If we treated this war on islam (that’s what it is, no matter how PC you care to be) like a real war, it would be over in a matter of weeks. We have the ability, we have the weapons. There would be huge amounts of collateral damage. And when we’ve destroyed enough major ME cities the remianing muslims will beg for peace, and behave themselves for a good long time.

What we lack is the will.

I hate war, but if you’re going to commit acts of war you should be ready for the reprisals that you’ve earned. And churching it up or pretending it can be won with pillows by little girls is naive and dangerous. War is hell. It should be hell, so we avoid it if we can. But if we can’t, we should win it as brutally and as quickly as possible.

The real world is a very rough and dangerous place. All of our civilization and technology does not replace or modify the laws of nature and man. Evil manifests itself in many ways and in many people. Gaddafi has murdered many people in cold blood and is responsible for the Lockerbie bombing hence, a very evil man. The fact that this tyrant met his just deserts by a crazed crowd of his countrymen should not bring out the bleeding hearts and cries for “justice”. Justice can take many forms and for this man, justice was served! A very harsh reality indeed but reality nonetheless.

Hmmmm. This may prove to actually make a point to people in the Arab world.

Didn’t Quaddafi suddenly turn over his nukes when Saddam was dragged out of his hidey hole and strung up like a common criminal?

You can bet the Arab world isn’t watching this and think “Oh the horror! They are celebrating the death of poor man and he is just one of God’s precious creatures too! How unChristian I am not going to like them anymore!”

They are more likely thinking “The infidels helped get one of our toughest guys, what can I do to make sure they don’t get me?”

Christien on October 20, 2011 at 4:56 PM

Qaddafi is just “Bread and Circus”. Well, actually, just Circus. Just slight of hand. Oh look over there! How about looking over here???

Former U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, Dwight C. Holton, who is by all indications speaking for Barack Hussein Obama, said on Wednesday: “I want to be perfectly clear about this: training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong (Get this – even a tendency towards violence!), they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for. They will not be tolerated.”

The training materials referred to are/were from the FBI, but I think we can pretty safely say that any similar training materials that existed/ever existed in the U.S. military would be viewed the same (Blaspheme against Allah!). These FBI training materials taught the truth, that regular American Muslims are likely to be terrorist sympathizers, that Mohammed was a cult leader and that the Islamic practice of giving charity is no more than a “funding mechanism for combat.” They teach, or at least did, that the more devout a Muslim, the more likely he is to be violent, that these tendencies cannot be reversed, that any violence against non-believers is justified to them under Muslim law as to them the ” the Koran continues to be regarded as the unalterable word of Allah.”

So there we have it, not only has the American military been in great part turned into an Islamic tool, propaganda and otherwise, (the troops may not like it but the Generals sure seem plenty fine with it), but now it looks like the FBI is being further put to that transformation too. We have a truly sick degenerate man as President who is at war with both the Truth and with America and he is going to further make our military and our FBI, and I might add our DOJ and our DHS, his accomplices in these crimes against humanity to the extent that they do not resist.

Mohammedan morals consist in prostrate like bowing 5 times a day in the general direction of some black stone in Mecca that is suppose to have fallen down from their moon-god, Allah, and attending mosque regularly at the appointed weekly time, and in breaking the ten commandments all the balance of the week. It comes natural to them to lie and cheat and torture and kill and enslave and rape in the first place, and then they go on and improve on that nature until they arrive at perfection. I never did dislike anyone as much as those Muslims and especially the Arabs, and, when Israel is pushed to war with them again, I hope America and England and France will not find it good breeding nor good judgment to interfere.

InkyBinkyBarleyBoo on October 20, 2011 at 5:02 PM

Can’t watch the video, but from the photos I’ve seen I can only say that death doesn’t agree with him. Of course, the camera does add 10 pounds.

My feelings about his death is somewhere between “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumble” and “he who is merciful to the cruel will become cruel to the merciful.”

Michelle Dubois on October 20, 2011 at 5:10 PM

Qaddafi lived and died by the sword. While I would have preferred to see him tried and taken in a civilized manner, he was the leader of these people and he brought them to this level of hatred towards him.

PappyD61 on October 20, 2011 at 7:52 PM

From the news reports I’ve seen, it went down like this:

Qaddafi was with his troops in Sirte, which apparently was ready to fall. He broke out with his remaining troops in a convoy, which was spotted and bombed by either a French Jet or an American drone. The convoy was pretty much destroyed, a wounded Qaddafi and a few remaining soldiers took cover in a drainage ditch, which was overran by rebels. They took and summarily executed him.

So it really wasn’t a “rebel” victory, he was caught in the open by NATO, and the rebels merely mopped up.

Rebar on October 20, 2011 at 8:06 PM

Quite the little barbarians, aren’t they. It’s this kind of thing that gives me such great hope for Libya’s future…

I’m curious about the fate of the African man sitting shackled in the truck. Is he one of Daffy’s mercenaries? If so, he’s no doubt crapping about the fate he’s about to face.

SukieTawdry on October 20, 2011 at 8:13 PM

They are more likely thinking “The infidels helped get one of our toughest guys, what can I do to make sure they don’t get me?”

Lily on October 20, 2011 at 4:54 PM

Oh I doubt that.

More likely what they’re saying is: “Qaddafi played ball with the West and look where that got him. Guess I won’t make that mistake”.

Remember a peculiar fact: even though Gaddafi was generally a horribly repressive anti-American dictator, in his final years he tried making a deal with the Americans. Gaddafi was frightened by the U.S. attack on Iraq in 2003 and didn’t want to be next on the list. So he cooperated, gave up his nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction programs, and reduced his foreign subversive efforts.

That did not save him from being overthrown by the United States, just as it did not save a genuine American ally, President Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. On this point, I’m not advocating anything about what the United States should have done in Libya but just observing how it will be received in the region.

it’s stupifying that supposed leftists who brayed on and on about George, who was issued the use of military force by our congress, who demanded and received compliance from the UN to finally put a tooth in it’s piehole, who when saddam was had he was released to the Iraqis who tried and executed the verdict, his illegal war yet,

They have sewn their lips shut or have lobotomized their frontal lobes so as not to be able to comprehend the simple tragic irony here

the commie left is a global ghetto builder and I guarantee Libya, Egypt and other muzzo dirt holes will not improve withe likes of bongo in charge

the left tried to destroy the Iraq effort simply because of the threat of a lawful nation

These, worse than barbarians, will come after Israel and us in the same manner when given the chance. Looks like Barry has increased the odds of that happening.

He was a ruthless son of a b!tch…I’m glad he’s dead.

No love loss on this guy but I’d like to see how much poise in death you’d have as several hundred people with automatic weapons were beating you and ripping your hair out.

Talk about moral superiority, you’re the fricking king.

Isn’t this the usual retirement plan for aging Middle Eastern dictators?

It’s awfully rare to see them move to a nice villa and enjoy their grandchildren and 401Ks.

Funny, i havent heard any lefties screaming for justice. Isnt a mob dragging a man who hasnt been tried or convicted in a court, considered murderers? If this had happened under President Bush, i know it would be considered a war crime.

Any credibility liberals had before Obama has been completely destroyed by their total hypocrisy.

What am i saying? We knew they never hated power, just power not in their hands.

Whiskey for my men, beer for my horse.

Wait, what? Why are we there?

These people have OIL….they are much better off than people in, oh, say Somalia…North Korea….
If we really wanted to help people, we’d actually help the ones that are most in need. All of this is just bloodlust for money lust and it’s sickening.

What? I said nothing about US being there. WE didn’t kill the bastard. THEY did. This has nothing to do with who is there or why, this has to do with you whining about how this creep died. You have a problem with it, I don’t.

What exactly is the difference between Momar and the rebels that killed him? They are both brutal savages. The country will now fall into a theocracy where homosexuals and rape victims will be tortured and murdered. Girls will be murdered because they had the termidity to show an ankle. Yep ol Barry sure has a foriegn policy victory to be proud of here.
