Things Change....

A reminder of how things change: This picture was taken at the 2010 "Arab African Summit" in Sirte, Gaddafi's hometown. The four leaders in front: Tunisia's Ben Ali, Yemen's Saleh, Libya's Gaddafi and Egypt's Mubarak.
Ben Ali has fled and been tried in absentia, Saleh has been seriously injured in an attack on his compound and is recuperating in Saudi Arabia, Mubarak faces the death penalty in his own country, and Gaddafi's whereabouts remain unknown.
For the absolute best constantly updated coverage on the situation in Libya, Al Jazeera English Libya Blog....I have been looking at the Guardian, which is pretty good. The other services, including BBC and CNN are always a half beat behind, but Al Jazeera has been on the ground since day one and they are the experts.
