Gaddafi unhurt in raid, 3 killed: spokesman
Source: Reuters

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was unhurt in a NATO airstrike on his Bab al-Aziziyah compound early on Monday that left three people dead, a government spokesman said, calling it an assassination attempt.

Spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said it appeared to have been an attempt on Gaddafi's life, but those who died were office workers and security guards while 45 people were wounded. He said the building housed political offices.

"How is this act of terrorism protecting civilians in Libya?" he said to visiting journalists at the compound, where books spilled from an office into twisted metal and crumbled concrete. "This is a cowardly attempt to pursue one person."

He said Gaddafi was not in hiding, but was in a safe place.

What does that terrarist protector, uh... spokesman think his 'not in hiding' but 'in a safe place' means, exactly?

6. So, which NATO leader will be attacked in retribution?
Terrorizing Gaddafi was not a good idea under Reagan, and remember how that worked out!
