So says the New York Times, while over at the Libyan consulate in New York, Libyan diplomats are accusing Qaddafi of crimes against humanity.

“We are sure that what is going on now in Libya is crimes against humanity and crimes of war,” the deputy permanent representative, Ibrahim Dabbashi, told reporters in the ground-floor lobby of the Libyan mission on Manhattan’s East Side, adorned by a large portrait of Colonel Qaddafi in tribal dress atop a white horse.

About a dozen of Mr. Dabbashi’s colleagues stood behind him as he spoke, looking tense and nervous.

As for Qaddafi's tools of war: Some of them are fleeing to Malta.
