Gadhafi's Grip on Tripoli Remains Tight, Unlike His Grip on Reality


Good evening everyone. It is 5 AM in Libya right now. Day 15 in the battle for the future of that country. A battle that will have ripple effects on us all. Muammar Gadhafi faced reporters today and spun a story of what he says is happening in Libya. It was a story. He says the people love him, his son says everything is peaceful. Tonight you will hear their statements and then you will hear the facts of what is happening. You will hear facts and you will see evidence for yourselves. You will learn the truth from our reporters on the ground and the Libyan people themselves. Trapped in their homes, in many cases, but speaking out....no longer letting fear rule their lives.

"Shame Has Quit The Arab World"

Anderson Cooper opened AC360 with "Good night everyone. Tonight, in Tripoli, families are once again hiding in their homes, as gunman rule the streets and the dictator, Momar Gadhafi and his sons continue to oversee the killing of unarmed protesters and continue the lie about what they are doing right now. Gadhafi, today, telling Libyans they should be signing and dancing in the streets. While I want to show you what his people are really doing in the streets and what's being done to them in those streets as protests swept Tripoli today. The Gadhafi regime which claims it would never kill it's own people, is killing it's own people. Again, more died today, more will likely die tomorrow."

"You know people in Libya say, when we talk to them on the phone every day and we talk to numbers of them every day on the phone, they say they want the world to know the truth about what they are seeing, about what they are going through. Many want outside help, but they don't want don't want others to liberate them. We hear that time and time again. They want to liberate themselves. I spoke with another protester earlier tonight, he told me this revolution has to belong to the people who are fighting for it." ~ Anderson Cooper

LIBYA, Inside The Uprising

Anderson Cooper opened AC360, "Good evening everyone. In a moment we are going to transport you from your home, or wherever you're watching right now, into Libya; into the terrified city of Tripoli, into the home of a woman who says she isn't sure how much longer she can hold on. She is desperate and she is desperate that you hear her plea tonight. The call that she made to us, at great risk to her own life, this call is a cry in the night. She hasn't been outside in the streets in five days. Merely stepping outside her front door she says can be fatal. Her ruler, the dictator of Libya, has hired mercenaries who right now are still on the streets, free to kill; and too much blood has already been spilt. The front line in the fight for the future of Libya is just outside this woman's front door."

Anderson went to break saying part 2 of his interview was coming up because,"she cuts through the clutter and I know it starts to feel the same thing day after day on a lot of these stories, but something about talking to this woman, tonight, I think just really shines a light on the reality of what so many thousands of people are living right now in Tripoli, in their homes; afraid to go outside while this man has his mercenaries and thugs in the streets."
