Sic Semper...

It's not clear exactly how Gaddafi died. The cameras were switched off at that point. Or maybe the footage has been suppressed. I think it was a case of bullying that went too far. The guys who found him were leaderless and over-excited. There was no plan, no cold-blooded cruelty. They knocked him about a bit because they could and then someone pulled the trigger. It's what happens. I don't see the point in moralising about it. 

Would it have been better if they'd turned him over to the authorities (what authorities?) and there'd been a trial and a sentencing and only then a killing? I'm not so sure. Did you see what happened to Saddam? That was ugly.
