Gaddafi's "Captured" Son Resurfaces Smiling, Free, and Defiant in Tripoli
Reaganite Republican ^ | Aug 23, 2011 | Reaganite Republican

The ICC was negotiating the evasive heir-apparent's transfer to The Haag already- what does this say about the enigmatic rebels we've all but installed in Tripoli? When asked, the only thing the main rebel spokesman had to say -in his best imitation of Baghdad Bob- was "This could be all lies!"... even as the elusive younger Gaddafi spoke on live television.

But it is possible he actually was captured (the ICC had confirmed it) yet escaped rebel custody: in fact, the opposition forces appear astonishingly incompetent, as his oldest brother Mohammed Gaddafi -who was not an element of the regime- already bolted from his 'house arrest' yesterday as well (!) If not the case, the rebels were lying about having captured him... even worse.

Alas, the regime spokesman and favored son Seif al-Islam Gaddafi's sudden appearance at a Tripoli hotel just the day after rebels claimed to have captured him came as a shock to all, yet prior to that celebrations on the streets of Tripoli had already disappeared due to fear of  residual regime snipers and/or continued fighting. 

Events have now shown them that they were right to be -and remain- plenty scared... this one may not be over. And while the Gaddafis' credibility is dubious at best, even the rebels admit brigades of Gaddafi loyalists remain on the outskirts of Tripoli, and "could be in the center of the city in half-an-hour."

Asked if his father was OK, an almost-cocky Seif al-Islam replied "Of course".

This lends much more credence to these reports that everything coming from the media are lies and propaganda.

The media simply makes things up these days. Just makes it up outright. If they reported it was dark at night, there's more than a 50 percent chance it will be bright and sunlit.

Every single word the media says or prints is a lie, including 'and' and 'the'.

You just don’t understand the concept of leading from behind.

Propaganda and disinformation cause confusion and chaos. A confused and chaotic populace is more easily turned against itself and conquered.
