Daughter: Gaddafi Alive and Well

Muammar Gaddafi’s daughter, Aisha Gaddafi, said in a radio address Friday that her father is not only alive and well, but he is still fighting for control of his country. Aisha, who fled Libya in August, gave her first public remarks since Tripoli fell nearly a month ago but did not give her father’s whereabouts. “I assure you, he is fine, a believer in God, in good spirits, is carrying his gun and is fighting side by side with the warriors,” Aisha said. Similarly to her father, Aisha called the former rebels “traitors,” and called on the “lions” of Tripoli to fight against them. The National Transitional Council launched a new assault on Friday against Bani Walid, where forces loyal to Gaddafi have put up fierce resistance.
