Throwback: Gaddafi's Last Words Begging For Mercy Before His Untimely Death

Dear members of the public, how well can you recall Colonel Gaddafi or what crosses your mind when you hear the name Muammar Gaddafi? Meet the ex Libyan President,His Excellency the late Muammar Gaddafi who ruled the Republic of Libya roughly 50 years,that is,from 1961 to 2011.

As far as I can tell, most people will remember how Gaddafi was ousted from power and eventually died. Some Libyans remember Gaddafi's accomplishments as head of state for the country.

Born in 1942, later Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi headed the Republic of Libya from 1961 to 2011 as Libyan President and died on October 20th, 2011.

On September 1, 1969, he led a group of young Libyan military officers in a bloodless coup d'état against King Idris I of the country. After Gaddafi's death in 2011, Libya was changed into a socialist state known as Jamahiriya, which means "state of the masses."

Last words of Gaddafi before he died of natural causes. Eyewitnesses said that Gaddafi's last words were an indication of grief since they stated that he glanced at the armed men surrounding him before saying, "What did I do to you?"
