I was torn about posting this video, it is graphic. You feel as though you are there. But I decided it should be shared…. it is your choice to watch.
In the very beginning at about 6 seconds, even though the cell phone camera is moving all over, you can see Gaddafi’s mouth moving…. probably pleading.
Update post publishing: When I first watched this, I thought he was dead by mid-video. I watched it a few more times, and he is still alive… pleading as they lift him in the back of the transport. I did change the title to reflect this is not the video showing him being killed.
