Report: Gaddafi Flees to Venezuela

It isn't confirmed, but reports are that Libyan autocrat Muammar Gaddafi is fleeing to Venezuela. Hugo Chavez -- recipient of Gaddafi's joke human rights award -- is a close ally of the Libyan dictator.

Meanwhile, there are reports that the Libyan air force is firing on protesters, and two pilots have defected along with their jets to Malta after reportedly being ordered to fire on civilian demonstrators.

The Venezuelans deny that Gaddafi is headed to Venezuela.

This, to note, is not all that important compared with what comes after Gaddafi - assuming he does not hang on. Circumspection is the order of the day, at least in my view.
