Libya's Endgame

Aug 22nd, 2011

The Muammar Gaddafi regime is at its ended.

Via AP:
"As rebels swarmed into Tripoli late Sunday and his son and one-time heir apparent Seif al-Islam was arrested, Gadhafi's rule was all but over, even though some loyalists continued to resist."

International Criminal Court trials are expected for Seif as well as his four brothers, if they are also captured alive.

Eliza Griswold ponders the strongman's fate:
"Two planes are reportedly waiting on the runway at Tripoli’s airport to carry off Muammar Gaddafi to places unknown, according to Al Jazeera."

Her analysis of Gaddafi's possible exile is worth reading.
