Kudos to the propagandist that got this one in front of the oil traders!
Classic contrarian strategy. The market is up, up, up on mideast unrest. Purchase a downside futures option position for next to nothing in a quickly rising market. The assassination story hits the wire and prices tumble, putting your short positions way in the money over night. Brilliant!

Follow the money to get the whole story.

You hit the nail right on the .. Someone made a whole lot of money on this rumor.
If he was shot and killed it would be all over the news by now.

Sneaky oil traders.

Now there are reports on twitter that President Obama will announce that is dead. Seems this rumor is running rampant! If he is really dead, maybe those oil traders have a CIA friend? That would not surprise me one bit.

As for the rumor itself, if not started to manipulate oil prices, could have started by people questioning the phone speech today. Many are saying it was not Gaddafi.

Upon first hearing/reading the "rumor" my first thought was that it was indeed spread to manipulate oil prices. However, it is not inconceivable that one or both (he really is dead) situations are true. I guess we shall soon find out. So, by the way, the man does or does not have multiple body-doubles (ala Sadam Hussein) ... do we know?

OMG,
the man is ugly enough,
who would want 2 or 3 of him ???
He looks like a zombie recently
in his press releases. He must not
be sleeping well or at all.

As far as his doubles. I have not heard of
Gadhafi using doubles. However, in light
of recent events, he may have adopted
the notion.

Maybe that's how the rumor started,
maybe one of his doubles was offed.
Who knows at this point?

But it is def something to look for.
We may find Gadhafi dead in a bunker like
Hitler was found.

With the internet, a rumor sure travels fast.

lol,
I have often thought about it.
But I'd rather read Clancy instead

he does a much better job than I
could do



Plus Clancy admits he is a fiction writer...

Intriguing Rumor, I will wait for confirmation

Gaddafi Fleeing with Gold, or “Going to go like Hitler”?


Libya’s dictator, Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, has filled his personal private plane with gold bullion and is seriously considering fleeing the nation, according to ABC News.

The report cited London-based Libyan political activist, Guma el-Gamaty, who told ABC’s Lateline that “quite reliable sources” believe Gaddafi is preparing to “flee to Zimbabwe to stay there with his friend Robert Mugabe (the current President of Zimbabwe).”

el-Gamaty went on to say that “We think this could happen very shortly because the (United Nations) Security Council is threatening to impose a no-fly zone and we think that Gaddafi will try to escape before this no-fly zone is imposed, possibly by tomorrow…So this is the most serious story we’ve heard today. It’s very indicative of the fact that Gaddafi is totally isolated, surrounded more or less and is probably in a state of mind where he’s just concentrating and thinking about how to escape and run away and stay alive.”

It is said that one’s true colors are shown during challenging times, and Gaddafi’s actions reportedly indicate how he truly feels about fiat currencies. Gaddafi is one of several African rulers who has considered fleeing his respective country with the yellow metal in hand.

In spite of what central bankers around the world would like their citizens to believe, gold has and will always continue to represent real money. The yellow metal is the one form of currency that represent no individual’s debt and cannot be created out of thin air with the click of a mouse.

However, a conflicting report on Gaddafi’s plans recently appeared as well. Libya’s former Justice Minister, Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil, told


Swedish newspaper Expressen that ”Gaddafi’s time is up. He is going to go like Hitler. He is going to commit suicide.”

really ???
Obama does a press conference just to
tell the world Gadhafi is dead??

The only way I can see this happening
is if Obama declares that Gadhafi was
killed on his (Obama) orders or orders
from the UN Security Council.

Otherwise, we would be hearing this type
news from the WH Press Secretary, not
Obama.

Re: Twitter

Typical rumors (it seems) as there is no mention of a press conference on any news site nor the WH site, that I can find (granted, I didn't look that hard) but as of now, it's looking highly dubious.

High in the WTI Crude Contract ( CL ) of 103.35 @ 3:00AM EST

Currently 96.82 @ 5:13 EST

The real slide began @ 2:00 PM EST dropped 2.50 in less than 45 minutes which is crazy

I heard on NPR this afternoon that Gaddafi stated that the protesters were high on hallucinogens provided by non other than Osama Binladen,that's why they're protesting.

Yes, it's being reported on BBC that Le Colonel is telling the young people of Libya to stop listening to bin Laden, he is leading them astray...



Thought bin Laden was dead?

Yeah, knew way before we did / do. That is why I always find it funny when there are articles published about how these "insiders" know something is going to happen in the market before it happens.

It doesn't work that way. It happens in the market before the article has the first word printed.

Most likely dealers and commercial wholesalers knew something was up first (the biggest interest). That leaves the other 99.5% of the marketplace taking stabs in the dark.

With these leaders now out of the spotlight, Imagine the information and secrets they know, no wonder they must all be disposed of.
