Obama and Sarkozy killed Gaddafi to silence him: Le Canard Enchaîné
As-Safir daily published on Thursday a report from the French weekly “Le Canard Enchaîné”, revealing that Washington and Paris have sentenced Col. Muammar Gaddafi to death.     

The weekly added that U.S. President Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy did not want Gaddafi to emerge alive from the chase spearheaded by the NATO in Libya last March, fearing that he will “talk too much” before the International Criminal Court  and that leaving him alive would turn him into a “nuclear bomb”.    

The weekly denied the accounts put forth by the NATO according to which, “Gaddafi was trying to escape Sirte in a convoy, when French and U.S. drones fired on his convoy, leaving him wounded. NTC forces later captured and killed Gaddafi.”

The weekly urged western countries and the U.S. to investigate the circumstances around Muammar Gaddafi's death, adding that a French special unit was around the location where Gaddafi was detained, and knows many details about his killing.   

The weekly added that on October 19, few hours before Gaddafi’s convoy was shelled in Sirte, a colonel at the Pentagon had called a leader of the French Military Intelligence, which was tasked with chasing after the Libyan leader, and had told him that “Gaddafi has fallen into the trap, the U.S. drones have located him in a district of Sirte and it became impossible for him to escape the grip of his chasers.”     

The U.S. Chief told the French Leader: “Leaving Gaddafi alive will turn him into a nuclear bomb.”    

Sarkozy had earlier tasked France's Special Chief of Staff Benoît Puga with overseeing the chase after Gaddafi. Gen. Puga pressed on with his mission in collaboration with the French Military Intelligence and the French special unit in Libya.     

The weekly revealed that on October 20, at 8h30 a.m. a U.S. drone fired on a 75-vehicle convoy that was heading out of Sirte at high speed. A French Mirage aircraft along with a drone launched laser guided bombs towards the convoy, destroying 21 vehicles and wounding Gaddafi.
