(Newser) – Where is Moammar Gadhafi? After reports surfaced that he was injured and had fled Tripoli, state TV released what it said was an audio recording of the Libyan leader taunting NATO. "I tell the cowardly crusader that I live in a place they cannot reach and where you cannot kill me," said the recording. "I live in the hearts of the millions."

Which, of course, doesn't do much to refute the rumors of him being wounded and on the run in southern Libya. An al-Jazeera correspondent thinks it's a little weird that no video accompanied the recording. And there's this: "A lot of people have been remarking that these speeches of the Libyan leader started at three hours and are now a minute and a half," said the correspondent, Tony Birtley.
