Remember boys and girls, Obama specifically said we are absolutely NOT targeting Moammer Gaddafi. But hey, Obama never said anything about not blowing up his children and grandchildren.
A NATO airstrike Saturday night killed the youngest son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and three of his grandsons at his son’s home in Tripoli, the Libyan government said.
NATO hadn’t confirmed late Saturday that it carried out the airstrike that killed Seif al-Arab Gadhafi, 29. Regime officials said that Moammar Gadhafi and his wife were visiting the home when it was struck, but both were unharmed.

NATO denies targeting Gadhafi family in Tripoli airstrike
NATO denies targeting Gadhafi family in Tripoli airstrike, really? Oh, I sse, it must have just been an incredible coincidence that the Gadhafi family just happened to be where NATO called in an airstrike. Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the U.N. resolution authorize a no fly zone to protect innocent civilians against airstrikes? Did I miss the part where it authorized NATO to blow up Gadhafi’s grandchildren, in their own home?
I’m sure this incident will really bolster our image across the Muslim world. and Russia was already pissed off about the previous NATO airstrikes targeting Gadhafi.
/as for me, the stench of impending blowback is making me queasy
