Pentagon sources told Capitol Hill Blue Thursday morning that embattled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi is dead, reportedly killed by rebel soldiers after they captured his home town of Sirte in Libya.
“The word we have is that he’s dead. We can’t confirm it at this point but it’s looking good,” says a Pentagon source.
The unconfirmed report emerged this morning that the ruthless dictator was shot as he tried to flee from captors just outside Sirte and and died from his wounds.
Triumphant rebels distributed a gory cell photo that they said was the bloody body of the deposed Libyan leader. The country’s prime minister also said Gadhafi was killed.
