TRIPOLI, Libya —Libyans shouting for revengeburied Moammar Gadhafi’ssecond youngest son to thethundering sound of anti-air-craft fire Monday, as SouthAfrica warned that the NATObombing that killed him wouldonly bring more violence.Libya’s leader did notattend the tumultuous funeralof 29-year-old Seif al-Arab,but older brothers Seif al-Islamand Mohammed paid theirrespects, thronged by a crowdof several thousand. Jostlingto get closer to the coffin,draped with a green Libyanflag, mourners flashed victorysigns and chanted “Revenge,revenge for you, Libya.”Three of Gadhafi’s grand-children, an infant and two tod-dlers, also died in Saturday’sattack, which NATO saystargeted one of the regime’scommand and control centers.Gadhafi and his wife were inthe compound at the time, butescaped unharmed, Libyanofficials said, accusing thealliance of trying to assassi-nate the Libyan leader.NATO officials have deniedthey are hunting Gadhafi tobreak the battlefield stalematebetween Gadhafi’s troops andrebels trying for the past 10weeks to depose him. Rebelslargely control eastern Libya,while Gadhafi has clung tomuch of the west, includingthe capital, Tripoli.Fierce battles have raged inMisrata, a besieged rebel-heldcity in western Libya, whichhas been shelled by Libyanforces every day in recentweeks. Records at one hospi-tal showed that at least eightpeople were killed and 54injured in shelling on Mondaythat lasted all morning andfor a brief period during theafternoon.Rebels have repeatedlycalled on NATO to use morefirepower against Libyantroops. “We call on the worldto deal with Gadhafi just asthey dealt with bin Laden,”said a Misrata doctor, referringto the killing of terror mas-termind Osama bin Laden inPakistan by U.S. forces earlyMonday. The doctor onlygave his first name, Aiman,for fear of reprisals.Under a U.N. mandate,NATO’S role is to protectLibyan civilians, but theinternational community hasincreasingly disagreed aboutwhat that entails. Westernpolitical leaders have calledfor Gadhafi’s ouster, prompt-ing warnings from Russia,China and others that regimechange must not be the objec-tive of NATO’S bombingcampaign, now in its secondmonth.Responding to the attackon Gadhafi compound,South Africa said Mondaythat “attacks on leaders andofficials can only result inthe escalation of tensionsand conflicts on all sides andmake future reconciliationdifficult.” On Sunday, Russiaaccused NATO of a “dis-proportionate use of force”and called for an immediatecease-fire.

took it as confirmation thathe and Mohammed were pro-tecting the courier. It onlyreinforced the idea that al-Kuwaiti was very importantto al-Qaida.If they could find the manknown as al-Kuwaiti, they’dfind bin Laden.The revelation that intel-ligence gleaned from theCIA’s so-called black siteshelped kill bin Laden wasseen as vindication for manyintelligence officials whohave been repeatedly inves-tigated and criticized for theirinvolvement in a programthat involved the harshestinterrogation methods in U.S.history.“We got beat up for it, butthose efforts led to this greatday,” said Marty Martin, aretired CIA officer who foryears led the hunt for binLaden.Mohammed did not dis-cuss al-Kuwaiti while beingsubjected to the simulateddrowning technique known aswaterboarding, former offi-cials said. He acknowledgedknowing him many monthslater under standard interro-gation, they said, leaving itonce again up for debate as towhether the harsh techniquewas a valuable tool or anunnecessarily violent tactic.It took years of workbefore the CIA identified thecourier’s real name: SheikhAbu Ahmed, a Pakistaniman born in Kuwait. Whenthey did identify him, he wasnowhere to be found. TheCIA’s sources didn’t knowwhere he was hiding. BinLaden was famously insistentthat no phones or comput-ers be used near him, so theeavesdroppers at the NationalSecurity Agency kept comingup cold.
