Muammar Gaddafi has said on Tuesday that events unfolding in Libya is a “charade.” He said this while speaking in an audio message broadcast on Syria-based Arrai television.
“What is happening in Libya is a charade which can only take place thanks to the (Nato-led) air raids, which will not last forever,” said Gaddafi in his audio message.
He added, “Do not rejoice and don’t believe that one regime has been overthrown and another imposed with the help of air and maritime strikes.”
This is his first audio recording since he denied crossing into Niger on September 08, though he regularly delivers messages via Arrai through his spokesperson Mussa Ibrahim.
Still, even if Gaddafi insists he is still in Tripoli, the hunt for him is covering the entire country. The city of Sirte, the last bastion of regime loyalists and the fugitive leader’s hometown, is seen as a temporary hideout option for Gaddafi.
