What do Gadaffi and Christopher Hitchens have in common?

Col Muammar Gaddafi the eccentric dictator was renowned for his cruelty and extravagance. Throughout his 40 year reign of terror, he established a family fortune estimated to be in excess of $20 billion. But as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and in his last moments, Gaddafi was terrified, cowering in a drain under a motorway, reduced to a wounded sewer rat. As he was discovered by the rebel mob, he was dragged throughout the streets, beaten, sodomised with a blade, and his life was ended with a bullet to the head. Finally, his body was placed on a car to be paraded like a hunter’s proud catch of the day.
