Today Gaddafi’s compound was targeted again.
The Telegraph reported:

Col Muammar Gaddafi’s Tripoli compound was targeted by coalition air strikes on Wednesday night as a senior British commander said the Libyan air force had been destroyed.

Five loud blasts were reported at Gaddafi’s Bab al-Aziziya compound, where he had made an address on Tuesday night and which had been first attacked on Sunday night.

There were eight further large explosions heard in the east of the capital and at a military base in Tajura, 20 miles to the east of the city.

State television reported “a large number of civilians” had been killed.

So why is it so hard for Obama to admit that the coalition is targeting the killer Gaddafi?
