It Happened in Libya Tripoli 8/20/2011

August 22, 2011

President Obama has spoken to the press about this weekend’s events in Tripoli, but appears to be taking a wait and see approach before weighing in. President Obama is quoted as saying, “We’re going to wait until we have full confirmation of what has happened. I’ll make a statement when I do.”

According to Al-Jazeera, NATO has issued a statement, saying, “The Qaddafi regime is clearly crumbling. The sooner Qaddafi realizes that he cannot win the battle against his own people, the better, so that the Libyan people can be spared further bloodshed and suffering.”

Al-Arabiya reports that another of Qaddafi’s sons is in rebel custody. The news network reports that Qaddafi’s oldest son, Mohammed, has surrendered to rebel forces.
