I do hope people don't just say "yes..." and then post the same YouTube video again.
To the second question, it is without doubt that Gaddafi, after all the handshakes, was victim of a Western will to overthrow him. Was he “bad” from whose perspective? I don’t think Gaddafi was bad for Africa or the Middle East compared to others. He certainly wasn’t bad for Libya - that is, the country and the majority of citizens. Although he had moved toward normalizing relations with the West over more recent years, he was clearly still bad for the ambitions of Western leaders.
Lastly, I believe everyone should receive fair trial in a neutral court. This mob lynching backed by U.S. and NATO bombs and also a U.S. assassination mission are not justice, but exactly what it says on the tin - lynching and assassination. It is not justice, it is criminal!
