Seif is Pretty Much Right

July 4, 2011

Muammar Gaddafi's most English son and once-likely successor, Seif al-Islam al-Gaddafi, has been notably quiet for the last few months as civil war ravaged the nation. The other day, July 1, he brought his new beard to speak with Russia Today.

The fast food line (11:55) is getting the most play, and it's true if a also a tactless taunt that might get more people killed (I wouldn't blame Seif for that, however). The rest is also well-worth considering. For my own reference and for whatever text is worth, I'll copy over some of his more interesting points below. In the meantime, those who haven't seen it yet, feel free.

He alleges the International Criminal Court is a "fake court," with NATO parties offering, under the table, to drop the charges in return for some deal (presumably a regime surrender). If true, that would make the ICC, as he says, a tool "controlled by those countries which [are] attacking us, every day." (5:08-5:32)

more coming... very tired, but wanted to get this up.
