The Moment of Muammar Gaddafi Capture (Exclusive Long Video)

President Barack Obama addressed the nation at a press conference Thursday on the death of Muammar Gaddafi.

"Today we can definitely say that the Gaddafi regime has come to an end," President Obama said. "The last major regime strongholds have fallen."

Al Jazeera showed graphic images earlier today of what was said to be Gaddafi being dragged around by armed men in Sirte, the ruler's hometown. GlobalPost's Libya correspondent James Foley reported on an eye-witness account of Gadaffi being shot in the heart and in the chest. The death of the autocratic ruler has been welcome news for pro-democratic supporters.

"This marks the end of a long and painful chapter for the people of Libya," President Obama said.

Neither President Obama or White House officials confirmed the reports of Gaddafi's death but say they have full confidence in the accuracy of the claims.

With Gaddafi dead, President Obama said the people of Libya now have great responsibility in building a tolerant and democratic nation.

"Today's events have proved once more that the rule of a iron fist inevitably comes to an end," President Obama said.
