While Qaddafi’s forces continue to pummel the rebels, two reports suggest he may be backing down.
First, sources tell Pan-Arab newspaper al-Sharq al-Awsat that Qaddafi sent a negotiator to the Transitional National Council to arrange his departure from the country in exchange for guaranteeing his and his family’s safety, according to the BBC.
Second, a Jordanian newspaper quotes Marwan Alfaouri of Alwasateya Forum as saying that “Qaddafi offered a democratic transfer of power within six months” (via @SultanAlQassemi).
Oil may be slipping on the rumours.
