Gaddafi reportedly captured, wounded and executed

The news came in this morning that Muammar Gaddafi was captured alive but wounded in both legs.  Later, this was corrected and we were told that he also had a head-wound (which was not noticed the first time around?) and that he had been killed.

I guess killing him on the spot was easier than poisoning him in The Hague.  Also, killing him as a wounded prisoner is probably less humiliating than being hanged by masked men screaming and making a video of it all.

God knows I was really no admirer of Gaddafi, but I am relieved see that he was spared some of the worst and most grotesque "victor's justice" meted out by the Ziocon Empire.

May God have mercy on his soul.
