Was this Gaddafi's grisly end? Picture claimed to be Libyan dictator after he was killed when rebels finally captured his last stronghold
Slumped against the bloodied legs of a revolutionary fighter, this is the picture which Libyan rebels say confirms that deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi has been killed.
The former Libyan dictator was reportedly found cowering in a hole in the ground at the centre of Sirte, after rebels moved through the seaside town during their final assault.
Fighter Mohammed Al Bibi told reporters that the toppled tyrant had pleaded 'Don't shoot, don't shoot' as he attempted to surrender.
There were multiple reports in the Arab press that he died after suffering wounds to the legs.

It looks like him, but it’s blurry.
Contrast our American troops, who pulled Saddam from the spider hole and brought him in for trial, with these rebels, who apparently shot Khadaffy while he was lying in the hole.
And WE are the one portrayed as the human rights abusers.
Doesn’t look like him.
I think it does. I was looking at previous pictures and if you look at hair, nose, lips, goatee and mustache, it looks like him.
Looks Too Good!!!
I don’t think it looks like him either.
Al Jazeera just showed a 20 second video clip of the crowd celebrating over his body. They rolled him over so you could see the face.
Yeah, those looked like leg wounds. Not that I care about him but are any of the democrats in this country who screamed murder at Bush for capturning and the ultimate hanging of Saddam going to question this? After all, there was direct NATO air support as reported this morning which means der Fuehrer and his regime were directly involved. They directly executed him while admitting that he was surrendering; probably at the recent behest of the hildebeest when she said that the dictator needed to be captured or killed.
Farrahkahn won’t be happy.

We may never know.
THIS JUST IN!
The White House just announced they gave Qadafi a proper Muslim burial and he is now buried at sea.
And no. They won’t release the photo’s.
Sure looks like him.
I believe it’s him.
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi considers the US president a blessing to the Muslim world. In a speech published in London-based al-Hayat newspaper on Saturday, Gaddafi praised Barack Obama, called him a "friend" and said there is no longer any dispute between his country and the US.
That was my first thought this morning.
That’s it then.
That’s one less dictator for Obama to bow to.
Arab-run and muslim-run countries have been at war with each other for centuries. We're now just joining in the fun, now that we have the right [fearless] leader!!
The dictator is dead, soon to be replaced by a bigger, meaner, more aggressive dictator. That’s called progress in the middle east.
I guess his disguise was he was wearing pants rather a dress.Sorry, It didn’t work.
First thought I had was how Obama the Muslim is going to take credit for this..and I really think he will.. Now go and be with your Father the Devil..you piece of trash..
The part that nags me is the "body double" problem. Situations like this make it difficult to get absolute confirmation that the body represents the correct thug. I REALLY didn't like it when the focus went to hell when they hung Saddam. It would have been easy to pull a switch.
How long until Gadhafi’s replacement meets the same fate...and then the next guy...and so on....and so on.....
Well it appears that Bush was right. Light the fuse and these dictators would start falling one by one. Now we’ve just gotta worry about what comes next...
Nah, that’s Generalisimo Francisco Franco. He’s still dead.
Maybe it wasn’t rebel forces that killed him. His convoy was hit by NATO jets. My guess is they were acting on intel. Then there would be some sort of NATO ground presence available to check the result of the airstrike and deal with the aftermath, say the SAS or some French or Itie equivelent. They find Qadaffyi and dispatch him. Didn’t Hillary say in Tripoli three days ago that he was going to be KILLED?
The soldiers should have killed Saddam outright. He was armed. But there is a law that rulers are not killed by soldiers.
The man was a brutal tyrant and most certainly deserved his fate but dragging his dead body around and displaying it in revelry is wrong.
I know it’s Qaddafi.
He looks better dead than alive.
will be interesting to see what happens now.
So this is what happens to Obama’s friend. What did he do, smart off to reverand Wright?
Neither will the White House. They can't claim credit.
Looks more like Ray McKinnon-the guy who played the preacher Henry Weston Smith on HBO’s DEADWOOD series...
It looks like Carlos Santana to me. (kidding)
In full uniform dress to the bitter end I see...
He’s not had any power since Reagan lobbed those missles in his tent 30 years ago. So the rebels got him. He’ll be replaced now with another stooge. How this character lasted all those years snubbing his nose at the US is anybody’s guess. Guess we never wanted to seriously take him out. Well he’s dead now. Who cares. But, watch Rambo Obama get on national TV and report the news, like he personally killed him. Or he’ll let Hillary Clinton announce to the world that he’s dead. This crap is getting so predictable. And the death of this powerful tyrant will drop the price of a gallon of gasoline down to $1.00? Or my house is not going to be foreclosed because he’s dead? What American cares about another two bit dictator in a banana republic that got too big for his britches. I don’t know of any.
Ask Brother Malcolm what happens when Farrakhan isn't happy.....oh wait, he's not available to answer the question.
...but dragging his dead body around and displaying it in revelry is wrong.
How dare you pass judgment on the Religion of Peace?
Looks like him to me too. Especially the mouth. Damn cowards kill thousands and hide they’re sorry arses in holes! Typical.
He's just trying out for a part on The Walking Dead.
He always kind of had that “dead” look on his face in recent years, so it’s hard to tell if he really has gone room temp.
I know, I know.....off with my head!
Their statement will be interesting. Amazing how Obama is killing all the terrorists. Kind of reminds me of Star Wars when the Emperor had all his puppets killed before he could take over.
It looks a lot like him to me.
He never looked better!
I’ve said since the 80’s that the one thing that would improve Kadaffy’s looks was some good sniper drilling him a new anus in the middle of his forehead.
It looks just fine over his right eye instead.
I expect that his earthly remains will be subjected to the same solemnity that Benito Mussolini received upon his demise...one can only hope......
Pigskin Shroud *ping*....
>>> Hell be replaced now with another stooge.
That’s the whole idea. CIA put one of our tame Libyans in there. It’s too soon to see if he will win the postwar power struggle but I assume we and the French are stacking the deck.
The rebel military commander is a CIA frontman named Khalifa Hifter.
Libyan rebel leader spent much of past 20 years in suburban Virginia
Suburban Virginia refers to Vienna, Va. Thats five miles down the road from Langley.
A 2001 book, Manipulations africaines, published by Le Monde diplomatique, traces the CIA connection to 1987, reporting that Hifter, then a colonel in Gaddafis army, was captured fighting in Chad in a Libyan-backed rebellion against the US-backed government of Hissène Habré. He defected to the Libyan National Salvation Front (LNSF), the principal anti-Gaddafi group, which had the backing of the American CIA.
He organized his own militia, which operated in Chad until Habré was overthrown by a French-supported rival, Idriss Déby, in 1990.According to this book, the Haftar force, created and financed by the CIA in Chad, vanished into thin air with the help of the CIA shortly after the government was overthrown by Idriss Déby.
The book also cites a Congressional Research Service report of December 19, 1996 that the US government was providing financial and military aid to the LNSF and that a number of LNSF members were relocated to the United States.
