Qaddafi Preparing to Flee Libya

O.K., We will See !

Haven't we heard this before.


Muammar al-Qaddafi is preparing to flee Libya possibly within the next few days, U.S. officials citing intelligence reports tell NBC News.

Officials are not completely certain that the Libyan leader will leave but reports point to him considering a move with his family possibly for exile in Tunisia.

The reports come a day after Pentagon officials described Libyan rebel gains as “significant developments” in the civil war that has engulfed the country.

On Wednesday, Pentagon Spokesman George Little said that "the future doesn't look particularly bright for (Libyan leader Col. Muammar) Qaddafi, but we'll have to see where things go."

He attributed the outlook to the rebel effort combined with sustained pressure from NATO operations and the economic and diplomatic sanctions.
