Muammar Gaddafi prepares to flee Libya
August 19, 2011
The same day that Libyan rebels captured a key oil refinery in Zawiyah, only a half hour from the leaderships stronghold in Tripoli, Col. Muammar Gaddafi is preparing to run for his life, ending his 42-year rule according to many reports. Gaddafi is reportedly planning to go to Tunisia or Venezuela where he and his family will be granted exile, in a matter of days. The Libyan president has apparently begun packing his belongings, according to a number of Arab media. But some warned that these intelligence reports may not be enough to assume Gaddafi’s exit, given his history of instability.
