Gaddafi's driver on the endgame: 'He didn't seem to know what to do'
Source: Guardian

Huneish Nasr last saw the boss he served for 30 years standing in the ruins of Sirte looking confused as all hell broke loose around them.

"Everything was exploding," said Nasr, Muammar Gaddafi's personal driver, recalling the moments before the deposed dictator was caught last week. "The revolutionaries were coming for us. He wasn't scared, but he didn't seem to know what to do. It was the only time I ever saw him like that."

Minutes later, euphoric rebels had ended Gaddafi's last stand, over-running the ruined quarter of his birthplace that had served as his final, ignominious refuge.

1. That's a brave man.

I hope he's allowed to live.

3. With no airpower or communications
you realy can't make any plans.

Anytime you try to mass troops you get blown up so you dig in and diversify and get blown up one defense line at a time.

Ask the Germans or Japanese.

6. "He wasn't scared, but he didn't seem to know what to do." It's called paralyzed with fear. nt
