What, here as well?  Look, the article refers to a report by Kim 
Septunga in The Independent, which indicated that Qadhafi had about 20% 
more territory in July than in mid-March.  The point about fast-moving 
situations is that you have to keep track of the plot twists.  At the 
time the article was written, the assessment was absolutely correct.  It 
wasn't until about a week and a half before Qadhafi fell that fortunes 
seriously started to shift.  Giggling about this is the equivalent of 
walking out of the Titanic half-way through, coming back in near the 
end, exclaiming "but there was a BOAT here a minute ago!  This film 
makes no sense at all!"  I mean, really.
