  • Gaddafi family launches PR campaign with TV interviews featuring Saif al-Islam and Aisha while Gaddafi threatens Europe
    The Gaddafi’s are obviously on a PR campaign to win sympathy. And from the look of their dress, both Aisha and Saif are hoping to appeal to the traditional world. Saif has a new beard and North African robes in contrast with his college boy look shown in the photo below taken from a CNN interview the first days of the conflict. Aisha appeared for her French TV interview...

  • ICC arrest warrant for Gaddafi & son Saif with UN Security Council travel ban on wife Safiya
    Safiya and Muammar in better days - or maybe now - hiding out in desert? This is not a good time to be a member of the Gaddafi family. The father, Muammar, named as “acting Head of State,” by the ICC (International Criminal Court) is officially wanted for crimes against humanity. He’s now an alleged war criminal with an ICC arrest warrant calling for...

  • Saif al-Islam tells the truth at last
    As his brother Khamis Gaddafi leads his Khamis Brigade in a massacre against the city of Zawiya, I am reminded of Saif al-Islam‘s comments to western journalists. “We have been holding back,” Saif has said several times in interviews with journalists. After the the last hours of  brutal attacks which include tank firing on residential areas in Zawiya,...

  • Interpol issues orange not red alert for Gaddafi family and Inner Circle
    Interpol issued an orange alert today for “possible movement of dangerous individuals and assets.” It did not issue a red alert, as in the case of Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, as a red alert requires the request of a member country and an underlying national arrest warrant. File No.:  2011/108/OS/CCC “The individuals listed in this Notice have been...

  • 3 Gaddafi sons among Libyan Inner Circle names on ICC investigation list
    Mutassim Gaddafi Luis-Moreno Ocampo announced that eight Libyans from Gaddafi’s Inner Circle would be investigated for crimes against humanity, but did not name names. He said that those on the list had either de facto or formal authority and that they would be held criminally responsible for any war crimes committed by those following their orders. He stated...

  • What PR firm is propping up Gaddafi?
    The Gaddafi regime must be working with a new PR firm. Whoever they are, they are good. And someone, probably Saif al-Islam, has convinced Gaddafi to listen. The image has changed completely. Gaddafi no longer seems wacked out on drugs – although he is as wacked out as ever. The press conference today was professional. Of course, Gaddafi went on and on with his nonsense...

  • Freezing Gaddafi family assets: Saif tells Amanpour “We don’t have money.”
    Saif al-Islam, Gaddafi’s second eldest son and his spokesman, looked tired and frankly a little beat during his ABC interview with Cristiane Amanpour. The fire is gone from his voice, the agitation from his body language, and he doesn’t smile or wink anymore. “We don’t have money. We are a modest family. It’s a joke.” He was responding...

  • Watch English interview by CNN Turk with Saif al-Islam
    This interview by Turkish CNN journalist Cuneyt Ozdemir with Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam is a must see. It is in English, filmed in front of huge map of Libya. Saif is animated and desperate to be believed. “Most of Libya is calm. All of the south is calm. All of the central coast is calm. Only two small areas of combat in the west.  Benghazi is in chaos....

  • Ahmed Kadaf al-Dam, Gaddafi’s cousin, defects to Egypt
    Ahmed Kadaf al-Dam is Gaddafi’s cousin and considered to be one of his staunch supporters. (note: Kadaf is yet another of the multiple ways to transliterate the names of the Qadhafah – Gaddifi family.) I’d be a lot more impressed if he hadn’t defected to the safety of Egypt rather than stay and fight for the people of Libya. He’s obviously...
