Gadaffi's Supposedly Arrested Son, Very Much Free, Hobnobbing With Reporters At Tripoli's Rixos Hotel

Tyler Durden's picture

When we said yesterday, while presenting live video of the "alleged" Libyan revolution, that "Since everyone is blatantly lying, on both sides of the conflict, we leave it to readers to decide what is actually happening." Which is why we can understand why some may have gotten the impression that Gadaffi's son Saif al Isam was arrested, after the Libyan rebel movement first reported this, and the ICC subsequently confirmed. Because it turns out he is anything but. According to Reuters, "Saif al Islam, the son of Libya leader Muammar Gaddafi who rebels and the International Criminal Court had been arrested, arrived in the early hours of Tuesday at the Tripoli hotel where foreign reporters have been staying." The following live blog from SkyNews merely confirms what we said yesterday: namely that Libyans on both sides of the divided have taken to doing what the developed (and for now, far less revolutionary) world does so well on a daily basis - lie to everyone about everything.

From SkyNews:

The leader's 39-year-old son, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court, was seen by several journalists at Tripoli's Rixos hotel.


It had been reported that two of Col Gaddafi's sons, Saif al Islam and Mohammed, had been captured by the rebels.


But Said was also been filmed being greeted by supporters in streets near the Rixos hotel. He told reporters his father was safe and well but did not reveal the leader's whearabouts.


It comes after it was claimed Col Gaddafi's compound in the capital was being bombed by Nato warplanes as forces loyal to the dictator make what could be a final stand.


Al Arabiya TV station reported that rebel sources had said the longstanding leader's base was coming under bombardment as clashes continued in the city.


Anti-government forces aim to maintain the control they gained over the majority of the city on Sunday night.


There have been reports of violence near the Bab al Aziziyah compound and around the Rixos hotel in the city's centre.


Reuters reported Al Arabiya TV as saying a third son, Saadi, has also been captured.


There are also unconfirmed reports that Col Gaddafi's youngest son Khamis Gaddafi, who runs a section of the Libyan army called the Khamis Brigade, has been found dead.


But so far there has been no sign of the embattled leader himself.


There has been much speculation about his whereabouts - Sky's foreign affairs correspondent Lisa Holland has said she believes he is still in Tripoli.

And, as yesterday, we conclude with the latent question: how long until the counterrevolution, and the latest slaughter of all those who yet again played the Brent-WTI compression trade, only to get carted out feet first.

Seriously, what really is going on in Libya, and Egypt, and Syria, etc., etc., with this Al Jazeera choreographed "Arab Spring"??!!:

I maintain that this is all going to end very, very badly for Israel, America and the West.

It is beginning...

More important - Where's Libya's gold?

Cursive's picture

So the whole thing was just a GOLD GRAB for Comex to pay Venezuela.

Randy Kruger's picture

Sure.  So was Egypt.  All planned many months before someone smarter than him planted an idea in Hugo's monkey brain to take physical delivery.

Hobbleknee's picture

Wouldn't it be easier to kill Chavez and keep the gold?

MyKillK's picture

No, I don't think that was the original rationale for starting this fake war. However, I do think this newfound urge to win quickly DOES indeed have a lot to do with the physical scramble to meet Chavez's redemption requests.

No.  It has everything to do about the UN mandate for "Humanitarian" war in Libya ending in September.

kinda, but NATO has already published that it will "stay the course" for 3 more months, and the UN doesn't matter, or they woulda castigated france for using their air force to drop wea-ponz into the sahara mountains last month, since it was (obviously) an aggregious act in violation of int'l law & the covenants of NATO engagement under the nannies' "rules for protecting innocent civilianz"

now we have the ICC lying thru it's va-jay-jay, and, damn!  the second 3 months that the Congo gave prez0 to play humanitarian-in-chief are now pretty much over.  so, yes, this is abt the "politics of the int'l nanny state" aka:  aren't we nice to everybuddy tho?  but it is the US edition of the "timeline of death" that has bilary so much in need of sanitary pads for the whore of babylon role to which she seems so fatally attracted, possibly due to some kinda penis envy around the White House, not to mention the fact that she is clinically, criminally insane...

Die another day.  This is the final act of this part of the show.  No great conspiracy here, but a preposterously dumb geopolitical move that will yet backfire, starting with Egypt.  The geniuses in charge of this seem to have completed a seminar on how to make enemies and alienate friends.  Mubarak shouldn't have been so surprised - you sleep with a whore, you wake up with one.  Qaddafi didn't sleep with that same whore, so his genitals haven't been cut off while he was asleep; he has a bit more leverage in the game.  Odds are you won't see him dragged into a courtroom in a hospital bed.

You're not looking at it from the bankster perspective.  It's a win win, regardless of the outcome.  That's the beauty of being a bankster.  It does not matter what side you are on either.  Regional war? They win.  Revolution? They win. Occupation? You guessed it.  They win...

slewie the pi-rat's picture

that's right, he isn't looking at it from the banksters perspective b/c he is real and can see for himself...

...someday, if you are able to follow a few, simple instructions, you, too, will cease to be a wooden-headed puppet and maybe become your own real child-self powerhouse adult, too!

...if you're not too busy pretending that the banksters can never, ever lose, no matter what, instead of listening to your own conscience which may, unfortunately, be encrusted in, unhhh,...shit

This is NOT the story we have been told.

This is not Gadaffi ruling over Tripoli with Gestapo-like secret police.

He has spent billions of dollars on water supply for Tripoli.  The gov't gives $50,000 (USD in dinars) to newly wedded couples.  There is free education of high quality through 4 years of university.

It's a city of 1 million people and he is NOT hated there.  It's a tribal country.  The western tribes like him.  The eastern tribes do not.  NATO signed on with the eastern tribes.

And let's make one other thing clear, here.  NATO's UN mandate was to protect civilians.  That FAILED.  They, in th past 2-3 weeks, tossed out the UN mandate.  Now they radio to advancing rebels what Gadaffi forces are ahead of them and tell them when to advance (after they bomb those forces).  It's overt air support for a bunch of muslim tribes from the east.

If there was more time, Russia and China would show up with air support and announce they are going to protect civilians and then bomb the rebels, who clearly are advancing into a civilian city, the capital.

Yes - exactly

Where was all the proof of his murderous rampage on his own people ??

Just like in Kosovo, the masks and AK's will be removed.  What remains will be a "mass grave" of "innocent men, women, and children."

MyKillK's picture

There is no proof, or evidence, at all. This has been confirmed by US commanders in a DoD briefing way back in March but the MSM decided to not report that little tidbit...gee wonder why??

slewie the pi-rat's picture

right here:  The Tripoli Post - Libya News and Business

gen-u-whine published arc-tickles published by reknown MSM lying fuking sax-0'shit to the effect that the moQ's legitimate goobermint is just a bunch of "ruthless military brigades" and that the moo-cow botherhoodz have re-named the main square "martyrs' square" and seif is captured, and the moQ has fled in a fuking boat, that he is "despicable" (wowser!  what a "daffy" way to put it, eh?), that the price of crude has fallen due to the rebels' success, the "revolutionaries are just mopping up", and that the head fuktard at the UN calls for him to quit, b/c his regime is "clearly crumbling (and...paste)... that the sooner Al Qathafi realises that he cannot win the battle against his own people, the better, so that the Libyan people can be spared further bloodshed and suffering." (end paste),...and that (paste) Libyan rebels chief and head of the National Transitional Council, Mustafa Abdul Jalil said that the moment of victory in Libya would be, when Libyan leader Muammar Al Qathafi is captured, alive, in order for him to be put on trial. (end) and...(paste) The third son of the Libyan leader Muammar Al Qathafi, Sa’adi, has been arrested, while many former aides of Libya’s long time dictator have fled the country to Tunisia or arrested on trying to flee.

shitmanfuk!  whaddya want?  egg in yer beer?

I have a hard time believing that all the tribes that have done business with Gaddafi and developed a working relationship with the government and the other tribes would be happy about the new pirates in town from Benghazi. Take a look at Libya on google earth and see how much agricultural development there is.

Indeed CO. and the great man made river of Libya , destined to transform Libyan Sahara into arable land has been the specific and calculated target of the mad NATO bombers.

Way off topic, but does anyone know how I can access Jim Sinclairs recent GATA speech? Everyone is raving about it (Eric Sprott, King World News etc) but I never see a link. 

This was Sinclair's moment of victory, having seen his one time "joke" of a prediction of $1650 an ounce come true.

Can I get a transcript?  Anything?

The man is a genius. His prediction that gold would go into its parabolic stage 3 once it reached $1,764 seems to be absolutely spot on.

Well its easy to see what the future holds when your PSYWAR staff eat GMO food and drink fluoridated water. 

This little adventure is turning into an episode of Gilligan's Island.

What a star spangled MI6/CIA fiasco.

I absolutely love these CNN/NYT/FT stories about "the rebels."

Shock and awe?

More like; Ah, shucks.

The frightening thing is the Oxford/Harvard Scottish whiskey crowd, beset with failures will pen a study saying it's "cheaper" to use FAE and daisy cutters than win the hearts and minds.  If the MSM is going to be so complicit in these resource wars, wouldn't it be cheaper to write the copy from the Pentagon and forgo flying any "reporters" to actual war zones.

Nuke Q-daffy from orbit.  It's the only way to be sure.

Another puppet government installed for the benefit of the Anglo West, in the name of 'fair and free democracy'. Make no mistake about it, this invasion and occuption of Libya was all about controlling China, Russia, Pakistan and other global competitors of western controlled energy resources.

It is indeed a "Grand Chessboard" as Zbigniew Brzezinski penned, we are all pawns in their game of global domination.

It is time for WE to Rise Above and take back our respective countries in the name of free humanity and universal liberty
