Today, the NTC released pro-Gaddafi fighters from camps and jails across Libya, all accounted for, all unharmed during captivity. The only remain being held are the thousands from Mali, Niger and other areas of Africa, many of them reported as Boko Harum and Al Qaeda fighters, some from the same terror cells now believed to be hiding Saif Gaddafi, wanted for war crimes by the ICC.
The report that the evasive Libyan ruler Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has died as a result of the wounds he sustained during a NATO attack has flung the Libyans into a jubilant frenzy while it has provoked mixed reactions from the political observers who may eye the event with reasonable degree of suspicion.
Many friends have been killed, just because they did not like Gaddafi.
The fist interviews ...will outline relations between President Reagan and Emil Lee Wanta, letting a few into the dream world of White House insiders.
The emphatic collapse of Gaddafi’s supposedly die-hard fighters as the rebels converged on Tripoli was an exact re-run of how the Northern Alliance militias swept into Kabul unopposed by the Taliban militants who evaporated into thin air.
Peter Bouckaert of Human Rights Watch, which found the documents, called the ties between Washington and Gadhafi's regime "a very dark chapter in American intelligence history, and it remains a stain on the record of the American intelligence services that they cooperated with these very abusive intelligence services
“To our astonishment, we saw names and photos of British men. The passes were headed “Collaborators With The 32nd Brigade”. What was the nature of their “collaboration” with the elite and feared 32nd - run by Khamis, the colonel's son?”, added the Channel 4 News reporter.
Sanders asked why the central bank made at least 46 emergency, low-interest loans to the Arab Banking Corp., in which the Central Bank of Libya owns a 59 percent stake. In the same letter, Sanders asked Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner why the Treasury Department on March 4 let the Libya-controlled bank skirt the economic sanctions against Libya.
Key prison records and other documentation are at risk of being lost as sites remain unsecure and documents are destroyed or taken away in Libya, Amnesty International warned today.
Just as Saddam Hussain portrayed himself as the new Salahuddin Ayyubi of the Arab world, Muammar Gaddafi projected himself as the new Omar Mukhtar of Libya. Salahuddin Ayyubi fought the marauding crusaders, and Omar Mukhtar fought the Italian invaders, whilst the Arab dictators spent their life oppressing their citizens and empowering their family and tribes.
Understanding the opposition to NATO’s intervention in Libya
"Things will be better when we have a president who doesn't kill and steal money."
Qaddafi will remain holed up in the south of Tripoli “until roads reopen and then he will emerge perhaps disguised as a woman or something else to leave” the capital, Jalloud said.
We were right and they were wrong...And the Libyan people will be the final judge of both.
There was no information coming in Sunday night (US time) on fighting in the east. Here is what we have this morning, but still not much yet as to why these non-Tripoli units still want to fight.
We've received a number of documents detailing rates for articles published and blogposts posted, with the highest rates being paid for articles that make it into the mainstream media (2,000 USD per article) and the lowest (500 USD per item) for blogposts of more than 700 words.
The attack came after Liverpool fired a barrage of illumination rounds in support of an air attack on the regime stronghold of Zlitan. No casualties were suffered by the ship's crew during the exchange and the MoD were unable to confirm if the battery was destroyed during the duel.
We pay special attention to the so-called “anti-imperialist” camp’s great betrayal of the Libyan people and how, through ignorance, stupidity, dogmatism, naivety and greed for Gaddafi’s money, these faux “leftists” turned their backs on the Libyan people and supported the murderous Gaddafi regime.
A real discussion is needed, simply to get some of the liberal left back to earth. Well meaning people are being hoodwinked into taking the wrong side. The Libya "sideshow" has been used to end any effective antiwar movement to stop Afghanistan, a very real slaughter. This isn't by accident. There are certainly ways to defend Gaddafi, especially when worse is happening in Syria and Bahrain, Israel and Gaza also and nothing is being done.
Bring the Army home and close the friggin' borders totally, "shoot to kill" totally. Freeze all assets held by Federal Reserve banks. If any (almost all) those banks are found to be foreign owned, declare all relationships with them to be inconsistent with our constitution. America will no longer pay banks, particularly foreign owned, to profit on our debt, sell us our own money and do so in direct violation of our laws.
Gaddafi attracts no sympathy within either the Islamic or the western world because during decades of power he appeared to be a rude and selfish leader; therefore, the majority of global news coverage remains pro-rebels, focusing just on how weapons are used, regardless of the consequences for the future of Libya.
