Investigation Dance

Some folks on the UN Human Rights committee want to investigate the manner in which Quaddafi met his demise. I can get that report together off the top of my head.

1. Is it really Quaddafi?
2. The man ran a for-life absolute dictatorship, with no real government institutions, no checks on his personal power, and the nation's laws changed on his personal whims.
3. The popular, armed revolt against him has taken place without real leadership, institutions, and is based mainly on which group of armed people gets where first.
4. If you run your government like 2, then you risk your due process be handled by 3.
5. The armed people who got there first decided to shoot the guy.

End of investigation.
