'Gaddafi was a benevolent dictator'

As NATO continues combat air patrols until all Libyan government forces surrender, and Muammar Gaddafi's days in power now appear numbered, some say the NATO is hunting for the wrong man.

“Mr. Gaddafi was a dictator, but he was a benevolent dictator, whether you like or dislike him,” said French journalist and blogger Moe Seager. “And he gave millions to black African health, educational and agricultural projects.”“He is remembered for doing that. He is not seen black and white as he is seen in the West, by his former supporters from the West,” Seager said. “The black African population, particularly in Chad and way down to South Africa, thinks that he made major contributions for the advancement of education, healthcare and agriculture in Africa.”
