According to this BBC report, the NTC units that have been fighting to capture Sirte, have captured Moussa Ibrahim, the Gadhafi mouthpiece at the Rixos Hotel. Moussa Ibrahim is a relation of Moammer Gadhafi, and he was the front man at the Rixos Hotel because of his excellent command of English. Moussa Ibrahim was working hard to take the crown from Baghdad Bob, and perhaps it should be noted that the worst of his propaganda were the lies that he told about Eman al-Obeidi, the woman who was raped by 15 of Daffy’s men (including some that were Gadhafi relatives) at a checkpoint leading into Tripoli.
What caught my eye in the BBC report is that it has been rumoured that Moussa Ibrahim was trying to escape by dressing in the clothing of a woman. This of course is a good reason as to why the burqa should be banned. What I am thinking here that Moussa Ibrahim has been all bravado until now, and his hiding in Sirte is probably evidence that other members of the Gadhafi family have been hiding in the same location. I think it is Mutassim Gadhafi who has been in Saif has been hiding out in Bani Walid.
Since his escape from Tripoli (and he left in a mighty hurry) Moussa Ibrahim has continued with the propaganda. He has given a regular diatribe, most of which has been exaggerated and totally lacking in reality. The situation in Sirte and Bani Walid remains grave, and there are citizens within those towns who are being held hostage as human shields for the Daffy Duck loyalists. Even if you resent these people because they are Muslim, one should pray for their well-being during this time.
There is still no real sign of where Daffy Duck might be hiding but one possibility is that he is in a border town between Libya and Algeria, possibly Gadames (sp) where he will be hiding with the Tourareg, who have been his supporters, as well as mercenaries from Niger and Chad, and possibly some mercenaries from Algiers.
UPDATE: As usual, it seems that someone has jumped the gun with regard to Moussa Ibrahim. Whilst the BBC reported that Libya’s Baghdad Bob was caught just outside of Sirte, and dressed as a woman, complete with veil, the people in Misrata have stated that they have not been able to confirm this information.
