Gaddafi still able to command troops: NATO

The pro-Gaddafi troops were seen retreating in an orderly fashion, hinting at Gaddafi`s command.

Brussels: Muammar Gaddafi is still able to
command and control his remaining troops even though the
Libyan leader is on the run, a NATO spokesman said on Tuesday,
adding that his whereabouts are unknown.

Gaddafi has shown the ability to still command and
control "troop movements and weapons movements, and the
deployment of these weapons, including the launch of
surface-to-surface missiles and operating radars," said
Colonel Roland Lavoie.

"Essentially, he is displaying a capability still to
exercise some level of command and control," the NATO
mission`s military spokesman told a news briefing.

"The pro-Gaddafi troops that we see are not in total
disarray, they are retreating in an orderly fashion, conceding
ground and going to the second best position that they could
hold to continue their warfare," he added.
