Gaddafi “I am in Tripoli and not in Venezuela”

It was as comical as a Saturday Night Live Skit.  A State TV broadcast showed Gaddafi with Umbrella opened as he sits inside a Vehicle.  He said  the following, “I am in Tripoli and not in Venezuela”.  That was about it.  The broadcast couldn’t have lasted more than a few seconds.

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi appeared on state television on Tuesday signaling his defiance in the face of a mounting revolt against his 41-year rule.

“I am in Tripoli and not in Venezuela,” he said, under a large umbrella, leaning out of the front seat of a van. Reports on Monday said Gaddafi had fled to Venezuela, ruled by his friend and fellow revolutionary President Hugo Chavez.

Libyan forces loyal to Gaddafi have fought an increasingly bloody battle to keep the veteran leader in power with residents reporting gunfire in parts of the capital Tripoli and one political activist saying warplanes had bombed the city.

Security forces had killed dozens of protesters across the country, human rights groups and witnesses said, prompting widespread condemnation from world leaders.
