msnbc ^ | 10/20/2011 | Reuters

Disturbing images of a blood-stained and shaken Moammar Gadhafi being jostled by angry fighters quickly circulated around the world after the Libyan dictator's dramatic death near his home town of Sirte.

Conflicting stories emerge NBC correspondent answers questions about Gadhafi With warped vision, Gadhafi maddened Libya, West Captured Gadhafi, bloodied and dazed, shown on TV . . The exact circumstances of his demise are still unclear with conflicting accounts of his death circulating. But the footage, possibly of the last chaotic moments of Gadhafi's life, offered some clues into what happened.

Gadhafi was still alive when he was captured near Sirte. In the video, filmed by a bystander in the crowd and later aired on television around the world, Gadhafi is shown being dragged off a vehicle's bonnet and pulled to the ground by his hair.

"Keep him alive, keep him alive!" someone shouts. Gunshots then ring out. The camera veers off.

"They captured him alive and while he was being taken away, they beat him and then they killed him," one senior source in Libya's ruling National Transitional Council told Reuters. "He might have been resisting."

The death penalty is ok as long as there’s no trial or appeals.

Does Obama condone what he once condemned?

I wouldn't be surprised. While I give him full credit for making the call that got Bin Laden, he did it using information that was gathered using policies that he campaigned against.

French Special Forces and the SAS killed Gudaffi, with the assistance of LNC forces.

Obama condones/condemns whatever his handlers tell him to do or whatever will get him votes. It is that patently simple.

Saddam got a trial by his own people, Daffy was shot in the head after surrendering with no trial and all we hear from most the media is crickets chirping.

Libya sells over 90% of their oil to Europe.

This is up to Europe as to who takes over.

Good luck Europe, since your broke and your money ain't worth a soccer ball.

The three ruling tribes of Libya will be running to, Yes, good old USA within 30 months to buy their oil.

Tru Dat.....We all know the deck is stacked against truth. We are living in truly evil times. My only hope is faith. Faith that truth will out and these conspirators-of-ideology will meet their due.

Now the Islamists controlling Libya and Egypt can start preparing for the attack on Israel with the use of the thousands of weapons liberated from Gaddafi's depots.

No. They will get US-backed 'loans' (i.e., never to be paid back) to upgrade and modernize their petroleum production industry (i.e., advised by German and British Petroleum experts and repaired by same), then promptly join OPEC or form their own MUSLIOPEC to reject all western infidels and RAISE the prices and hold the Western World hostage to even higher prices, only to renege on deals, steal MORE of our money, and then finance even-more WORLD-WIDE Muslim Brotherhood terrorism than ever before... YES, it will get that bad.

You don't make friends with them; you annihilate them if you get the chance - you'll be better off in the long run

Notice how quick they are to show the video and claim they took DNA samples “while the blood was still warm”? Yet, no video of Osama BL. I think the media is clueless.

LNC or the New Libyan Govt. forces just committed a WAR CRIME and Dear Leader LOVED it.

And why not? Dear Leader`s war is illegal, a direct violation of the War Powers Act.

So, waterboarding known terrorists is an abomination but battlefield torture and executions are ENDORSED by Dear Leader.

USA isn`t even a democracy anymore.

Here’s how I think how it went down....the captors probably told him to kneel...he refuses as an act of defiance. This accounts for him being shot in both legs. He falls to his knees. Then they execute him with one shot to the head....sounds reasonable?

Didn’t Hillary suggest that the best thing was for Gadhafi shouldn’t survive? He killed so many It was a forgone conclusion he would die quickly.

Watched the video of Gadfafi’s death on Al Jazeera. I wonder what it feels like to be hated that much.

“French Special Forces and the SAS killed Gudaffi, with the assistance of LNC forces”

dead men tell no tales. These European nations supporting the rebels have had long, deep and cozy relationships with the deceased - probably some were illegal at several levels. They want him quiet - it seems he is!

The “Rebels” showed that they aren't any better than Gadhafi was which we already knew that and Obama has been denying it.

So, you’re saying hate was not the greatest contributor to the end results?

I agree with you, but I also know that hate will blind one of seeing Justice served. I would have rather seen Gadhafi tried, and then justly hung.

Methinks there was no doubt as to who the defendant was, what the charges were, and what the sentence should be.

hate among the Libyans, but among some European leaders fear of public disclosure of some nefarious dealings with Qaddafi, IMO

Dealings with Gadhafi penetrate deep in our Government as well.

I think it is absolutely depraved. Shows what devils the rebels are. Similar to the Bolsheviks.

I am confused.
From the reports I heard when I woke up this morning (early morning, US time) was that predator drones, from Obumbo, killed him.

Now, I hear that rebels killed him in a drain pipe and that we had nothing to do with it.
The MSM, no doubt wants to give as much credit to Obumbo as they can.

Actually he was dragged out of the drain pipe, put in a car, drove away, taken out of the car, shot in the head and then dead.
