"Nothing but a flimsy barbed wire fence surrounds a massive arsenal of ammunition and weapons stockpiled [at Ghaaa military base] in the desert by Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi. No further fortifications were necessary. Until it was seized and pillaged by rebels Tuesday, local people were too terrified of Kadafi's wrath to come anywhere near it. ... [Rebels seized the base] after a quick battle that killed at least two opposition fighters and sent dozens of government soldiers fleeing." (06/29/11)
