The "Mad-Dog" of the Middle East is dead!

Reuters is reporting that former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has died of wounds suffered on Thursday as fighters battling to complete an eight-month-old uprising against his rule overran his hometown Sirte.  The body of the former Libyan leader was taken to a location which is being kept secret for security reasons, an NTC official said.  "Gaddafi's body is with our unit in a car and we are taking the body to a secret place for security reasons," Mohamed Abdel Kafi, an NTC official in the city of Misrata, told Reuters.  His killing, which came swiftly after his capture near Sirte, is the most dramatic single development in the Arab Spring revolts that have unseated rulers in Egypt and Tunisia and threatened the grip on power of the leaders of Syria and Yemen.  "He (Gaddafi) was also hit in his head," National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters. "There was a lot of firing against his group and he died."  ALJAZEERA is reporting that another NTC commander said that Moussa Ibrahim, former spokesman for Gaddafi's fallen government, was captured near Sirte.  Abdul Hakim Al Jalil, commander of the 11th brigade, also said he had seen the body of the chief of Gaddafi's armed forces, Abu Bakr Younus Jabr.  "I've seen him with my own eyes," he said and showed Reuters a picture of Jabr's body.  "Moussa Ibrahim was also captured and both of them were transferred to our operations room."  Good riddance, Gaddafi was responsible for many innocent deaths and now Gaddafi is regulated to the dustbin of history.
