The Director of the London School of Economics, my gradschool, resigned because the school took funds from Gaddafi to train Libyans. One of his sons - Saif - took a PhD there - his dissertation is being examined for plagiarism.

3.2.11: Gaddafi is bombing cities.
From AlJazeera's live blog: http://blogs.aljazeera.net/live/africa/live-blog-libya-march-2
Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley was just on the phone with us - 10km away from the oil-rich town of Brega. As we spoke, he was watching a Libyan airforce jet bombing the area.
It’s now an air attack. We just watched an air force jet from the Libyan air force fly over Brega and drop at least one bomb - and huge plumes of smoke are now coming out over Brega. Another bombed near our position, where anti-Gaddafi forces have gathered.
All the fighters here are massing. We understand that something like 250-300 pro-Gaddafi fighters inside Brega and they are being surrounded.
Gaddafi is still a force to be reckoned with, he is not giving up.
The population here want an air exclusion zone to prevent this sort of attack - but they don'twant foreign troops on the ground.
All major oil and gas installations in the town are in thehands of the opposition. We believe this is the main reason for the attack.
