 We were prepared. Emergency shelters were open. We evacuated1 and also a lot of people. But, when you get that much water in that period of time, we literally2 were taking on an inch-and-a-half of rain an hour and for a sustained period, you just can't take that...were marvelous, did last and airports were gonna dig out at last and had tremendous damage, loss of life, as we all know about obviously partly damaged homes, infrastructure3. You cannot predict exactly where it's going, whether it can do the damage.

 
Several members of the rebels in the town of Ghadames which is on the border between, yeah, it's in Libya but it's on the border of Algeria, just right to the south of the Tunisian border, the end of the Tunisian border. And the, those rebels who has reported to their NTC that they saw six armored Mercedes cars crossing into Algeria but they didn't enough weapons to chase and catch them.
 
He'd been expected to die almost two years ago. But convicted Pan Am 103 bomber4 Abdel Baset al Megrahi lives, only just. This wasn't the way he looked when he was released from a Scottish jail two years ago. He came home to a hero's welcome, freed on compassionate5 grounds. Because doctors said he'd be dead in three months. Almost immediately, he began renovating6 this palatial7 house, money no object. It didn't take long walking around this building before you begin to realize, and looking at the marble and its expensive fittings. I realise, it appears that Megrahi was being paid of handsomely for all those years he spent in jail. In the two decades since the bomb exploded onboard Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, killing8 270 passengers, crew and townspeople, it seemed the secrets of the attack would die with the bombers9. Megrahi always maintained he was innocent. Just a month ago, in a rare public sighting, Moammar Gadhafi had him literally wheeled out for a pro-government rally. I'm seeing him now for the first time in two years. He appears to be just a shell of the man he was, far sicker than he appeared before.
 
Alan brings a wealth of experience to the job. He’s one of the nation’s leading economists11. For more than two decades, he’s studied and developed economic policy, both inside and outside of government. In the first two years of this administration, as we were dealing12 with the effects of a complex and fast-moving financial crisis, a crisis that threatened a second Great Depression, Alan’s counsel as chief economist10 at the Treasury13 Department proved invaluable14
