Aisha Gaddafi On The Radio: Daddy's Fine and Carrying His Gun

From Aisha's personal album found in
her abandoned home.
Just catching up with our favorite diva, we learn from The Associated Press that, “Moammar Gaddafi's firebrand daughter said in an audio recording broadcast Friday that her father is in high spirits and fighting alongside his supporters against the revolutionary forces who swept his regime from power. In her first public remarks since the fall of Tripoli a month ago, Aisha Gaddafi accused the country's new leaders of being traitors, noting that some of them were members of Gaddafi's regime before defecting in the civil war. 'Those who have betrayed the pledge they offered (to Gaddafi), how come they won't betray you?' she said in a warning to Libyans.

“The prerecorded four-minute message was broadcast on the Syrian-based Al-Rai TV, which has become Gaddafi's main mouthpiece. The elder Gaddafi, his chief spokesman and his son and one-time heir apparent, Seif al-Islam, have also released statements through the channel since the takeover of Tripoli.

“Aisha, her mother and two brothers fled to Algeria in late August as rebels swept into Libya's capital. Her father's whereabouts is unknown.

"'I assure you, he is fine, a believer in God, in good spirits, is carrying his gun and is fighting side by side with the warriors,' she said.

“Echoing remarks her father has made to the same station, she called on the "lions" of Tripoli and other cities to rise up and fight the country's new rulers.”
