There are unconfirmed reports of great significance. 1. Qaddafi’s son Khamis may have died in a suicide attack, which if true, is a major blow to Qaddafi and his armed forces because Khamis is a key figure in Qaddafi’s loyalist corps. and is the military commander of the elite Khamis Brigade; 2. there are rumors that Qaddafi may be preparing for a life in exile. This latter rumor is probably not true because everything Qaddafi has said and done and is doing leads to the conclusion that it’s still premature for him to be planning his escape (though I’m sure he’s always had a preliminary emergency plan as a contingency).
