Less than a month after fleeing across the Algerian border and giving birth to a baby girl, Aisha Qaddafi is back on the radio saying defiant things. "Moammar Gadhafi's firebrand daughter has released an audio recording in which she says her father is in high spirits and fighting alongside his supporters against the revolutionary forces who swept his regime from power," reports the Associated Press. "In her first words since the fall of Tripoli a month ago, Aisha Gadhafi accused the country's new leaders of being traitors, noting that some of them were members of Gadhafi's regime before defecting in the civil war."

This is the same woman who told a roaring crowd in April, "Gaddafi said if the Libyan people don't want me I don't deserve to live."
