Gaddafi Preparing to Flee: Report

Embattled Libyan leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi is preparing to flee Libya, Pentagon sources told NBC News on Thursday. Gaddafi is reportedly planning to go to Tunisia, where he and his family will be granted exile, in a matter of days. But some warned that these intelligence reports may not be enough to assume Gaddafi’s exit, given his history of instability. The news comes on the same day that Libyan rebels captured a key oil refinery in Zawiyah, only a half hour from Gaddafi’s stronghold in Tripoli.
