The Ugly Truth: Video of Libyan Rebel Beheading Gadhaffi Soldier and Other NATO War Crimes

Beheaded Libyan soldier

By Susan Lindauer
Former CIA Asset covering Libya

NATO has been pumping propaganda out of Libya to justify its “humanitarian war” against the government of Moammar Gadhaffi. Until now, NATO has succeeded in large part because ordinary citizens around the world have no access to direct intelligence on which to base their own opinions. As the former CIA Asset who covered Libya at the United Nations from 1995 to 2003 during negotiations for the Lockerbie Trial, I am compelled to break past that propaganda to examine actual evidence.

Responding to numerous requests, I am sharing primary evidence that I receive daily from sources inside Tripoli.  Video documentation comes from Libyan refugees, collected by a fact finding commission called “Global Civilians for Peace in Libya.”

The fact-finding team includes Europeans, Africans, Americans and international human rights attorneys, who are preparing allegations of War Crimes against NATO. Judging from these videos, financial damages that NATO will be required to pay Libya should be stupendous, indeed.

Above all, it’s clear NATO has grossly misrepresented its arguments at the United Nations, in order to justify military action against Gadhaffi. Britain and France trusted bad intelligence from unreliable sources, trying to gain power from the conflict.  A more careful investigation shows that it is the NATO Rebels who are guilty of serious war crimes—not Gadhaffi’s soldiers at all. Sanctions should be thrown out, and NATO should shift its military forces to back Gadhaffi in defending the Libyan people.

Never play truth or dare with a spy.

These videos portray horrific atrocities. There are two important reasons why NATO Rebels would commit these acts. First, in committing war crimes, NATO Rebels have deployed a strategy for provoking panic and confusion at the street level, where they must control the people. They have frightened their opposition into silent submission. Ordinary Libyans can see with their own eyes that Libyan Rebels are all powerful, protected by NATO and CIA enforcers. Pro-Gadhaffi loyalists had better shut their mouths or face terrible consequences.

At the same time, Libyan Rebels have discovered a way to punch NATO’s buttons, and fire up the engines for the “Humanitarian War–” For some reason, the world is supposed to believe that Gadhaffi’s government — which has no history of attacking its own people in 41 years of rule — is suddenly guilty of the most hideous offenses.

Those of us who have studied Libya closely have opposite expectations. Historically, Gadhaffi has been so tenacious and protective of his people that he refused to hand over two Libyan men for the Lockerbie trial, despite years of U.N. sanctions. Gadhaffi knew the men were innocent, and would not get a fair shake in Court. To sum up, Lockerbie was a false flag operation to hide rogue CIA involvement in heroin trafficking out of the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon, during the Terry Anderson hostage crisis. A joint team of CIA, FBI and Defense Intelligence investigators were flying on Pan Am 103 that day, heading for Washington to expose the heroin ring, when the plane exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland. Libya got tagged as the fall guy, but like 9/11, the truth refused to die. And Gadhaffi refused to back down. He stood by his people, despite punishing international pressures.

Gadhaffi’s guess proved correct, by the way. In one of the most shameful episodes of corruption ever at the International Courts, the U.S. bribed two witnesses at the Lockerbie Trial with $4 million pay offs. After both witnesses recanted and confessed to the payments, the only Libyan convicted in the Pan Am 103 bombing, Abdelbasset Megrahi, won a “compassionate release” from Scottish prison in August, 2009, ostensibly so he could go home to die of cancer.

Gadhaffi’s actions reveal a great deal about his character. As a leader, does he throw his people to the wolves? Or abandon them for convenience? Notoriously not. He claims the Libyan people as his own. He protects them no matter the cost to himself.

These videos are the reality check. Ironically, by claiming Gadhaffi’s forces have been responsible for rape crimes specifically, NATO has made a glaring admission that War Crimes are in fact occurring inside Libya. Headlines that Gadhaffi issued Viagra to fuel rape binges by his soldiers played very well on CNN. However former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has determined that the only major purchaser of Viagra bound for Libya was the U.S. Government itself, which handed out Little Blue Pills to older Rebel soldiers to energize them for battle.

That strategy has backfired. Ordinary Libyans are fleeing Rebel strongholds, racing to the protection of Gadhaffi’s central authority for safety.  

The Bad Guys   

These videos look awfully like Al Qaeda to me. But don’t take my word for it. Look at the evidence and decide for yourself. They’re hosted at on a special site,, because it’s got hefty security and rock solid courage to speak truth to power. will not back down. More videos will be added in coming weeks.

The first video shows a Libyan rebel beheading a Libyan soldier. If it looks like Iraq, well golly, the highest percentage of foreign fighters in Iraq (and Chechnya and Afghanistan) came from Eastern Libya. Unhappily for NATO, there’s no avoiding that this video was shot in Libya: The men are speaking a Libyan Arab dialect with its own distinct accent.

The second video shows gruesome footage of a Libyan rebel cutting up the rotted flesh of a dead soldier and forcing it into the hands of Libyan Prisoners of War, who are lined up in a row so they must eat it.

Another video shows a group of Rebels sodomizing a civilian with a pistol. Another shows a crowd of Rebels hanging and beheading a Libyan soldier.

Another video shows CIA operatives working side by side Rebel forces, and driving around in trucks— proof that U.S. forces are already in Libya in violation of President Obama’s promise to Congress to keep boots off the ground.

Another video shows several dead Libyan soldiers with their throats cut, lying in the back of a truck. The killings violate the Geneva Conventions of War, which protect enemy soldiers after capture. In the excitement, NATO Rebels encouraged a frightened on-looker to video the butchery and claim that Gadhaffi’s forces were responsible. Afterward, the man with the video grabbed his family and fled the Rebel stronghold. That’s how the video reached the fact-finding group in Tripoli.

It’s all on, hosted by Federal Jack, with our greatest thanks for having the guts to show the truth, which corporate media lacks.  It’s so barbaric that it defies understanding how NATO could have envisioned these Rebels as holding any leadership potential at all.

Rape As a Weapon of War

Worst than you thought, right? Most notoriously up to this point, it has become evident that Rebels are using rape as a war-time punishment of pro-Gadhaffi or “neutral” families. In Islamic culture, the whole family suffers stigmas after rape, a sort of communal punishment.

Right now a team of female human rights attorneys are interviewing rape victims. Two rape testimonials and other eye witness reports are provided here. For the attorney affidavit on the larger problem, go to

However these are not the most graphic stories. The problem is traveling hundreds of miles through checkpoints and bombs. By explanation, as of June 22, non-governmental fact finders are traveling 200 miles to video a boy who got castrated and both eyes gouged out by NATO Rebels as punishment for refusing to join their paramilitary unit.

Other video getting collected comes from a father, who describes the kidnapping of his virgin daughter from a pro-Gadhaffi family. After dragging her out of the house at gun-point and taking her to a rape party, NATO rebels cut off her breasts with a knife, and she bled to death.

Human rights investigators are now interviewing a Libyan woman from Zawia who survived a brutal gang rape that cut off her breasts. Miraculously, horrified on-lookers  saved her from bleeding to death, when excited Rebels ran off, firing their guns in the air. She’s been hospitalized, but she’s too physically and mentally damaged to handle the interview at the moment. International human rights attorney are standing by.

We urgently seek an American sponsor so this Libyan woman can undergo reconstructive surgery in the United States or Europe.

On June 19, Gadhaffi soldiers entering Misurata rescued another rape survivor. The young woman had been kidnapped and held hostage for 20 days. Rebel forces gang raped her every single day, round the clock, until Gadhaffi’s forces broke through their lines and saved her life.

So much for NATO’s humanitarian mission. Clearly NATO has been grossly deceived, and should cease at once from protecting these Rebels who are monstrously abusive to the Libyan people.  U.S. tax dollars are training a New Taliban to intimidate the Libyan people into submission, while the West plunders Libya’s wealth.

But NATO failed to take into account the spirit of the Libyan people. Libya has a powerful history and traditions of resilience in defending its sovereignty from foreign invaders. Libyan families and Tribal Leaders are determined to seek financial damages from every NATO and Arab country that supports the rebels. So long as NATO provides training, uniforms, military assault rifles, jeeps and transportation, ground advisers and air power—-NATO will be forced to take responsibility for these crimes. Financial damages will come out of funding for NATO’s own citizens—out of education, health care, government pensions, universities, roads, bridges, you name it.

Patrick Haseldine, a British expert on Libya’s conflict with NATO, has calculated current British financial damages at $2.8 billion.

All of it begs the question why NATO governments should want to support these Rebels in the first place? Indeed, all of us should ask some important questions.

Should President Obama spend hard-earned U.S. tax dollars from the Middle Class to finance this War?  [Estimated at $1.1 billion by Obama. ~ Ed.] Should America assume the role of training Al Qaeda forces and function as Al Qaeda enforcers? While our great nation bleeds red ink? While Americans struggle to find jobs and fight off foreclosures? Knowing that our soldiers are exhausted from two other failed Wars—fighting these same Al Qaeda Rebels in Iraq and Afghanistan?

And why exactly should America prop up NATO, so that the British and French can relive their glory days of Empire?  Is it worth risking our Empire and prosperity? Really?

These videos reveal a whole different truth. The CIA will probably get mad that I have released them. But good Intelligence Assets are supposed to deliver brutal honesty. We’re not supposed to hide ugly truths. We’re supposed to get information that leaders—and communities— urgently need to make the most informed choices in policymaking. It happens to be very, very ugly intelligence. But it would be wrong for me to spare you.

In my opinion as a former U.S. Asset, the United States should break ties with the Libyan rebels and cut off financing immediately.

You can decide for yourself.

  1. omg… how horrific. I”m sure to have nightmares now.

    I only watched the first few seconds of the child torture video… and am sure I will not lose the image.

    Susan, can you explain the Global Civilians–Moriarty–Libyan Oil Conglomerate connection?

  2. “Rebels” are power-hungry terrorists, say Libyan refugees

    Civilian casualties have raised serious misgivings about NATO intervention in Libya, even among supporters of the ongoing aerial campaign. And while the international community is taking sides in the conflict, it is the Libyan people who suffer most.

    Salma and her family escaped from the Libyan rebel stronghold of Benghazi to hide in a refugee camp in the west of the country when life in their native city turned into a nightmare.

    “It’s not safe there anymore. It’s become dangerous. And that’s not only because of explosions and gunshots. One day, people from the government in Benghazi – you call them rebels, we call them terrorists – came to me and told me, ‘we have to arrest your daughter, because we know that she supports Gaddafi,” Salma told RT.

    The escape has been long and hard for the women and their family, says Moona, another refugee.

    “I had to hide for some time from them, as they’ve been searching for me. Then we knew that there was a bus coming from Benghazi to Tunisia, the bus with the rebels, for their purposes. We took that bus, with our faces covered, and everybody was against Gaddafi there. We told them that we are also against and they let us in. We kept silent till we went to Egypt and from there via Tunisia we were sent here,” she recalled.

    Salma’s brother Sabri, a surgeon, has also fled the city. He says they have made three attempts on his life, but he only left when he saw a killing.

    “They took him from the ICU and killed him in front of the ICU and hanged his body on the wall of the hospital,” he said, describing what happened to one of the patients.

    The doctor says the people from the National Transitional Council were behind it – the rebels’ official political body formed after the revolution in Libya started in mid-February. Its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the only legitimate representatives of Libya.

    “There is no opinion other than their opinion. You are either with them or against them. They talk about freedom and democracy but there is no freedom and democracy. They just want the power,” doctor Sabri explains.

    The refugees in the camp say they now finally feel safe. But it is not that safe from this side of the frontline either.

    People gathered at a cemetery in Sabratha, the western region of Tripoli, to bury those killed in what the Libyan government says was a NATO airstrike. A bomb apparently landed on a private compound, flattened it and killed 15 people, including three kids.

    “We have been calling for peace and negotiation for months and no one wants to listen to us. Now we have to pay a very heavy price of civilian casualties and also military casualties. I think the time has come for the world to understand that this conflict has to come to an end immediately,” says Moussa Ibrahim, a spokesman for the Libyan government.

    But it is very unlikely to happen anytime soon. The newly dug ground in the cemetery is still fresh, while NATO has already claimed that the operation to “protect civilians” must go on

  3. Please send identifying information proving that the identity of this information provider is, in fact, Susan Lindauer.

    Next, the info provider should provide justification for publication of this information post-Panetta’s TOD in CIA. Why wait to provide this information to taint the TOD of the new CIA director? What motives are involved?

    Don’t misunderstand; I champion any cause for social justice. It’s just that it has become clear to me that whenever intimidating a civilian population is the intent — whether it is Northern Mexico or the Middle East — out come these god-damned beheading videos in all their medieval glory.

    How do we know these videos aren’t designed to pacify us, the few remaining dissident American citizens, into a traumatized state where inaction is the only survival response possible?

    Before we publish any more of this drivel, I suggest we lay our cards out on the table where everyone can see precisely where everyone else is going. The psychopaths are clearly in charge and are clearly using this inhuman crap to stun us into allowing them to further destroy human civilization.

    • we have been in email contact since she joined COTO. I don’t have permission to give out her email, but she gets notice of these comments.

      I have no other confirmation that those emails authentically originate from Susan, except that she sent me a copy of her book, brand new (which I have yet to read and review).

      But, I believe it is Susan. In previous posts, she promised more info was forthcoming.

      the videos are pretty horrific, as bad as Collateral Murder, but up close and personal.

      Since reading Ismael Hossein-zadeh’s piece, originally posted at Global Research, which says that the Libya invasion is about more than oil (since Western oil companies have long been in Libya), we can imagine that something more sinister is at play here.

      He says it’s the IMF.

      I happened to do some background checking on Global Citizens for Peace in Libya after someone posted a comment (I was merely confirming the info in the comment) and did find that GCPL is associated with Green Libya Petro Services.

      You can see my rather lengthy comment, with links, here:

      I’m wondering if this is what it looks like when corporations go to war.

      Regardless, surely, you are not asking us to censor such info? Horrible things happen in war, and these videos are not the sanitary shots you’ll see on TV.

      volaar, have you read Extreme Prejudice?

    • and what does TOD mean?

  4. Yep, I am the real Susan Lindauer. After all the crap I’ve gone through, it’s sort of amusing that anyone would want to pretend to be me. I assure you it wouldn’t be pleasant for very long.

    I’m an old-school Asset. That means we do not politicize intelligence. We recognize that most mistakes are made by politicians who have been sweet talked on Capitol Hill into some foreign policy blunder, which will have drastic consequences for whatever geographic region and our economic and national security interests. They need the facts fast, so they can correct their mistakes. A good CIA Director– like outgoing Leon Panetta— encourages a lively debate, so that all points of view and sources of knowledge are weighed in the mix.

    Far better to cut our U.S. losses now, than to build up Al Qaeda in North Africa, terrorizing the Libyan people and wrecking the infrastructure and future oil potential of the country. This is a huge mistake, and it will hurt our own Middle Class very, very, very, very badly. The first two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wiped out 20-30 percent of the U.S. middle class, who are now down for the count forever. I will not stand by quietly while U.S. policymakers wipe out the next 20-30 percent of the U.S. Middle Class through catastrophic stupidity.

    The fact that I can deliver this level of direct documentation, beyond any speculation or secondary analysis, should go far in persuading some of my detractors to reconsider their assessment of my work. I was never a light-weight. I dealt with Iraq and Libya on anti-terrorism.
    So when I come back to you with Intel about 9/11, maybe you ought to consider what you’ve seen me deliver here.

    My stuff is the real stuff. The rest of the gang are a bunch of poseurs.

  5. That’s fine, Susan. If Rady believes you, I believe you. I just don’t like traumatizing myself for someone else’s benefit. Personally I’d like to take a Louisville Slugger to the SOB’s who did this and a fresh one for their handlers. Cheney, Addington, Perle, Wolfowitz — the PNAC Pinochle gang.

    My sense is that the IMF is doing this stuff in Northern Mexico, too. They don’t seem to like it when we’re able to compare notes globally. Push out a few beheading videos and, suddenly, no one wants to travel. The next best thing to a SARS outbreak.

    I’m glad you like Mr. P. The walnut farmer. Yeah, that guy.

    I’m not asking for censorship at all, just some critical thinking and some caution. I saw what happened with Kos and our former editor right after the election…the psyops pseudowarriors are not above scattering the herd with still more psychodrama.

    • yeah, it’s horrific.

      I had trouble falling asleep last night — those video images kept me up. I’ll tell you what I did, tho — and it worked. I kept surrounding those men with loving energy, to heal them …

      I don’t know if that had any effect on them, but I quickly fell into a peaceful sleep. (I like to believe it did have a positive effect on them. 🙂

      I do look forward to reading her book

  6. TOD — tour of duty. It’s a gov’mint term.

  7. Well guys, it’s my belief that progressives and conservatives alike should unite in opposition to this War in Libya. Whatever your politics, these Rebels are atrocious human beings. They’re not worthy of receiving U.S> or NATO protection. Quite the opposition, the Libyan people cannot understand why we’re not defending Gadhaffi. The cynicism of our actions is creating long term animosities among ordinary Libyans, who are appalled by these Rebels. (That’s why they’re videotaping everything. The ordinary Libyan who has no power, who’s helpless at the street level, wants the world and other Libyans to know what’s happening to them.)

  9. so now that the truth is coming out …
    how are we going to stop the bombing killng !
    and when ??????

  10. OH MY GOD! I have just viewed the clip at the top of the “obamaslibya” video site… The video is not from LIBYA, and, for the love of God, seriously, just what lengths are you prepared to go to in order to smear Libya’s reputation? The video shows the slaughter of a human being! The accents could be from Iraq. That aside, it has so callously been attributed to Libya’s apposition. There were indeed few isolated incidents of mercenaries’ corpses being lynched by limited furious individuals whom took it upon themselves to set an example to any other would-be Gaddafi recruits; after Gaddafi’s initial violent crackdown was repelled late in February. Considering the extent of brutality that the protestors were met by the violence they endured arguably yielded their violent retaliation.

  11. Nope, this video of the impaled child comes from inside Libya. My fact-finding friends visited the hospital and took the video. It’s amazing how everyone wants to assume the Rebels are such great people. They’re not. They’re a—holes and bastards. And they have demonstrated no respect for the Libyan people, who in response have lost all confidence in them. The Transitional Council favored by France & NATO should be brought up for War Crimes prosecution.

  12. Let us be clear: All videos come from inside Libya. We have taken extra steps to validate the circumstances by interviewing family members of the murdered and abused Libyans. What’s happening is horrific. And it’s authentic and confirmed.

    Friends of the Rebel cause are right to be ashamed and alarmed.

  13. It’s extraordinary how Rebel supporters want to rationalize this violence. I think it’s time we bring out the family videos that confirm their relationships to these human beings, who have been so viciously abused. This wasn’t Iraq. It wasn’t a couple of years ago. This was Libyan rebels, who are speaking Libya’s own dialect. And these people had families — IN LIBYA, who grieve the suffering they had to endure.

    Making up stories just reinforces the total lack of integrity of the Rebel movement. I’m ashamed for Rebel supporters that they are not horrified by what they’re shown. And they try to build excuses for it.

    NATO is guilty of War Crimes in Libya. And Libya’s people and Tribal Leaders have every right to seek financial damages from NATO govts. in equal measure to what Britain & France have demanded that Libya to their citizens– $10 million per person for the West.

    Hey, we can always auction the British Crown Jewels and Buckingham Palace. If I were Britain, I would stop right now.

  14. Really I dont see one evidence if the video for rebel or Gaddafi forces ,Gaddafi now try to polish his image using Libyans money ,and he asked many media companies to do that, to make it more clear ask your self why all media now say stop bombing Libya,the story start on Feb,17 ,but becuase Gaddafi think he could kill all PPL ,and no one can do any thing about so he didnot give his attention to media,,but now becuase he saw that the revolutionary coming very close to him he try to do media war,,so let me ask you do you know any thing about Abo sleem massacre,go to you tube and see or HIV children case when he injected 400 children come on ,,in Abosleem he kill 1267 persons in 3 hours ,and this is just one case do you know how many ppl we found killed be Gaddafi regime last few months and no one know about who they are,,now he start media war,but you know what it is very easy to find the truth just go and do your home work ,,looking for the truth,,and he can stop NATO easy,,why PPL you dont ask Gaddafi to leave the country so NATO will stop the bombing that time we will support you,,every day Gaddafi forces kill hundred of civilians and you dont talk about that you talk about NATO who protect the PPL from Gaddafi ,it is very clear for me now you jus get money to miss with rebel image and try to make Gaddafi A good guy,,so you forget the Locrbi case ,and every thing,,good ,,becuase of the money you can close your eyes of PPL blood,,,shame on you

    • we have several reports from several different journalists inside Libya that confirm such atrocities are occurring at the hands of the NATO rebels.

      Yet corporate media in the West continues to push the BS you’re spouting here.

      sorry, shame on YOU

  15. Have my other two comments actually been removed? Why leave only one of my comments? I wonder if I were to re-post my other two comments, would they be removed again and again and again?

  16. My dear Lord! And I thought I’d come across the worst Gaddafi apologists had to offer! I hope the reference to the dreadful “child torture video” is the one of the poor child impaled by an iron rod?! For the record, the incident occured in Algeria and the footage dates back over a year. Anyone that understands what is said during the clip will be able to establish that it has nothing to do with current unrest in Libya. However, Gaddafi State TV used the clip months ago in an attempt to provoke animosity between Zulitan and Misrata by airing the footage and claiming that the child was from Zulitan and was tortured by “rebels” in Misrata because he was wearing green.

    People, with all due respect to your efforts in opposing unprovoked and disproportionate military action ensued in previous years and in other parts of the world, please try to understand Libya’s crisis for what it is. I cannot describe how patronising it is to hear or read activists or academics apply there tried and tested arguments from other fields to Libya’s current circumstance.

    I am absolutely gobsmacked at how consistent all the commentary, that is sympathetic to Gaddafi, is on almost every comment string I’ve stumbled across on news sites and blogs from around the world. God knows, I wish I had the time to respond to every single one of them. Nonetheless, I’ve now started a blog myself to try and help provide some clarity on the matter.


  17. Okay, Folks. I don’t want to overegg the pudding here but I had to watch the rest of the videos on the “obamaslibya” video documentation page and here are some accurate descriptions that you ought to feature alongside them for reference:

    Libyan rebels behead Libyan Soldier – Possibly recorded in Iraq sometime after the invasion in 2003. Certainly not recorded in Libya or by Libyans.

    Libyan rebels Kill and steal weapons from Libyan Soldiers – Dead Gaddafi troops in the city of Misrata which was under siege for four months. Parts of the city have been raised to the ground due to Gaddafi’s indiscriminate bombardment of its civilians. Gaddafi snipers were also spread throughout the city. Gaddafi chose to wage war on Misrata. His tropps weren’t there to plant flowers. Its population rightly fought back. Stretches of the city have been planted with landmines following the withdrawal of Gaddafi’s ground troops. The outskirts of the city are still being shelled by Gaddafi’s Russian supplied Grad missiles.

    CIA fighting rebels – fabricated homemade propaganda, not even worthy of a meaningful description.

    Libyan Rebels sodimize Libyan Soldier with pistol – Indeed, one of the few spontaneous and unfortunate incidents that occurred in the wake of Gaddafi’s violent crackdown. Actions of individuals do not represent the portion of Libya’s population which opposes Gaddafi.

    Libyan Protestors and Rebels hang and behead soldier – Also, one of the few spontaneous and unfortunate incidents that occurred in the wake of Gaddafi’s violent crackdown. Notably, in the clip, bystanders can be heard calling on the perpetrators to stop carrying out their horrendous actions. Again, actions of individuals do not represent the portion of Libya’s population which opposes Gaddafi.

    NATO bombs normal cars – Not an air strike. Not in Libya. Possibly a road side bomb captured by what sounded like passengers with American accents. Possibly contractors in Iraq or Afghanistan?

    Rebel forces Libyan Solider to cannibalize – The troops in this video are Gaddafi Soldiers being forced by higher military ranks to eat raw meat from a dog’s carcass and then kiss the dead dog on the lips (tongue and everything!). This is old footage recorded before the revolution even started. If anything it exposes Gaddafi’s systematic humiliation and degradation of Libyan troops effectively turning them into self loathing desensitised killing machines. Thank you for sharing this with the world.

    Libyan Rebels Torture Small Child by Sticking a Pole Through His Body – Last but not least, I should have known this video will crop up on this site as well… The shamefully infamous “because the boy was wearing green” clip! This poor child is not Libyan. The incident which he sadly endured did not occur in Libya. The incident took place long before Libya’s revolution. The accents in the video are Algerian. The child’s tragic injury has no link whatsoever with current events in Libya. The clip was distastefully manipulated by Gaddafi’s state TV to smear the reputation of Libya’s opposition.


  18. Nope. This is all confirmed from Libya. It’s not from Iraq. It’s not year’s old. It’s all current and proves how despicable the Libyan Rebels are. They’re guilty of war crimes. No one who boasts of “humanitarian” concerns in Libya should support these a—holes.

  19. I happen to be one of the very “a–holes” that you have self-righteously deemed unworthy of anyone’s humanitarian compassion. Nonetheless, I can only thank you for at least allowing my comments to remain on this post.

    All the best.

    • well since you admit it, and you managed to keep a copy of your previous comment that got deleted, are you also one of Cass Sunstein’s infiltration agents? Did you need to turn in your proof of work? Is that why you have a copy of your comment?

      In a time of universal deceit, we expect many more of your ilk.

  20. My responses to your comments also got deleted, as did the host moderator’s comments. It may have been a technical glitch. As for the most important part, you call this a “humanitarian” war— and it turns out the Rebels you support are committing GROSS atrocities against the Libyan people. These are war crimes. And it’s offensive that anybody who refuses to condemn these crime should get high and mighty. The Rebels are terrorists. And I am furious that my tax dollars should support them. I sympathize enormously with Libya’s decision to throw ENI, Italy’s oil company out of the country.

  22. Rady, I had copies of my comments because I pasted them into a word doc for a spell check. I am but a mere citizen doing my bit for my country. The rapid escalation of seemingly orchestrated misinformation about Libya’s crisis in recent months left me no choice but to respond and speak out online. Almost everything I’ve written is on my blog. It’s the least anyone in my position could do, considering the immense sacrifices people are making back home in Libya.

  23. Yeah, the Libyan people are dying under NATO bombs, while friends of the Rebels enjoy the comfort and safety of life OUTSIDE the war zone. How wonderful of you to support bombs that are dropping on somebody else. How brave.

    • Libyan lives have been unlawfully and unreservedly taken by Gaddafi’s bloody cult for the past four decades. If it weren’t for Gaddafi’s brutality, there would be no Libyans in political exile. If NATO bombs were targeting civilians as Gaddafi claims for obvious reasons, there wouldn’t be much left of Libya after four months of military action. There is no comfort or safety to be enjoyed during these dreadful times. I wish your moral stance on NATO’s imposed bomb dropping was objectively applied to Gaddafi’s ongoing indiscriminate shelling of civilians in cities still within range of his dwindling military. However, I will understand if you have no sympathy for Libyans if you are of the view that Gaddafi did not wage war on the Libyan people in the first place; in order for any of the current military intervention to have been called for.

      Many of my family and friends are in Libya; some of whom have lost their lives at the hands of Gaddafi’s forces. Perhaps my family and friends are more deserving of being regarded brave. Cowardly as you may regard me, I am not recording audio messages from undisclosed locations and hiding underground whilst ordering my country’s men and women to kill their fellow citizens just so that I can remain in power and for my sons to inherit the wealth and power I’ve unlawfully acquired. If such traits resemble bravery then Gaddafi is your man. Nonetheless, I’m sure you know only too well that Gaddafi’s warzone transcends many spheres. Would this blog post have otherwise come to exist? Perhaps, any cowardly Libyan in their right of mind would not sit back and let Gaddafi’s venomous slurs go unchallenged.

  24. slindauer2010, the potential technical glitch, which may have resulted in the accidental deletion of 2 out of 3 of my original comments, doesn’t seem to have occurred this time around. My reposted comments remain present should anyone wish to respond.

    Indeed, gross atrocities against the Libyan people have been and continue to be committed. However, apart from Gaddafi’s worshipers, the majority of Libyans would argue that the only “terrorists” responsible for these atrocities are Gaddafi and his assailants. For instance, when opposition fighters in Nafousa Mountain recently transported hospital equipment from the deserted frontline town of Qawalish to a hospital in the opposition strong hold of Zintan, the hospital was reported to have been looted by opposition fighters. The very NGO that made this questionable conclusion on this occasion has unsurprisingly made numerous other findings about gross violations perpetrated by Gaddafi’s regime; such as the use of human shields, land mines, etc. Obviously, not all of the opposition fighters can be expected to behave like saints and are likely to make mistakes under the testing circumstances that they are facing. Ultimately, no matter how many mistakes are reported and no matter how much they may be exaggerated, they can only ever amount to a minuscule fraction of the systematic chaos and brutality unleashed by Gaddafi in the face of what started off as a peaceful call for political reform in mid February. As it happens, Libya’s opposition remain cooperative with all Human Rights organisations allowing them unfettered access to liberated parts of Libya; if only the same could be said about the few cities that remain under Gaddafi’s siege where even journalists have not been allowed to move or report without the regime’s supervision. Perhaps Gaddafi has something to hide?

    The flat pack “rebel” branding makes for digestible mainstream media coverage “rebels v. government” with the supposedly democratic notion of leaving people to decide whether it’s a case of “good v. bad” or “bad v. worse”. Those whom hold views inherently opposed to either sides of the conflict will unsurprisingly look to exploit every opportunity to discredit their foe. That in mind, and for the misfortune of the Libyan population, the international community acting under the provision of UN security council resolution and its utilisation of the NATO alliance in enforcing the alleged “No-Fly-Zone” has stirred some arguably undeserving empathy for the Gaddafi regime. The widely drafted “any means necessary” in UNSCR 1973 somewhat adds to the fury of anti-US sentiment because it implies that the instrumental mission was poised for regime change all along. This in effect draws rhetorical parallels with Iraq and Afghanistan which diverts the attention of some spectators away from any potential fundamental differences between Libya’s current crisis and those of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    To try and brand a significant portion of any population as a premeditated rebel entity is arguably unreasonable. Libyans, as any other human population, have every right to form their political views. It is unfair to shun those of the Libyan population for forming political views that oppose Gaddafi’s dogma. If elements of Libya’s military, security or political institutions saw it right to side with the people against the regimes brutal oppression then its only fait for this opposition to pursue legal political and military means to protect the Libyan people from Gaddafi’s vengeance.

    We Libyans sympathise with any international citizen resentment of the ongoing military action. It couldn’t end soon enough if we could have things our way; peacefully. It is unfair to burden hardworking US or EU citizens with the costs of such a military campaign. However, Libyans have also seen billions of their national income scattered left right and centre by Gaddafi and his sons over the past 4 decades. Notwithstanding the benefit this pathological money wasting bestowed on governments around the world, Libya’s current frozen assets, previously exploited solely by Gaddafi and his mob, will soon be utilised for the benefit of Libya, which will inevitably return with some benefit to the international community as well.

    For the record, Libya has never made a decision for itself. Oil deals, weapons deals etc., were always Gaddafi decisions with the approval of his ideological puppeteers. Every company Gaddafi claimed to have nationalised was merely commissioned to international corporations under Libyan frontier brands. The dividends were at the disposal of Gaddafi and his foreign fan club all along. Russia, US, China, Britain, Italy, Spain, Brazil, France… they’ve all dipped into Gaddafi’s bottomless pockets, all at the expense of the blood ridden Libyan people and their long forgotten human worth.

  25. Amazing Enes how your locutionary accent has changed from the first comment to the last. You sound very American, not like a foreigner writing in a second language. I think you’re full of sh– pretending to have family in Libya.

  26. My family are from the city of Gherian, southwest of Tripoli. I was born in Benghazi. I have lived in the UK, on and off, for 17 years, including 8 years of my early child hood. I lived in Libya uninterrupted between 1989 and 2001; 10 years in Benghazi and 2 in Tripoli. I have just finished my final year at law school. Perhaps all the law reports and case commentaries I’ve studies in recent years have influenced my style of writing. Quite frankly, I do not care what you think of me, what unwitting readers of this respectful blog might be unfairly influenced into thinking about Libya’s current crisis is more of a deserving concern.


  27. So you live safe and sound, far away from the bombing in Tripoli. And none of your family is suffering deprivations of food and medicine. None of your family are terrorized by NATO bunker bombs, or have to fear stray cluster bombs.

    How nice for them! (And you say Gadhaffi is blood thirsty?) NATO Rebels are guilty of war crimes, and they should face prosecution. They have certainly proven that they are too immoral to run a country. Any country.

    And by the way, you’re complaining about GAdhaffi whose government has granted you major financial scholarships to pay for your overseas education. Sounds like a real bastard to me! (You should try a U.S> student loan, which is financially crippling a lot of America’s college students. Now that’s a real bitch. Gee, maybe NATO could come bomb Washington)

    • I’m not a state sponsored student. What would make you think that? I have a job and I’ve paid my own way through my higher education. I wouldn’t accept a penny from Gaddafi if I had to starve to death. I have a couple of deferred exams to sit in mid August. I’ll be heading back to Libya as soon as I’m done. Of course my family and friends are bearing the brunt of the ongoing unrest as are all Libyans. However, their major concern is the threat posed by Gaddafi; not NATO. There have been hundreds of cluster munitions and landmine victims in Misrata and Nafousa Mountains due to Gaddafi’s shelling of civilians in these cities.

      I don’t know what impression you have on my relatives or the relatives of any other Libyan that happens to be abroad at the time being. We are all in this together. No one in Libya’s besieged cities is safe. My aunt’s house was ransacked by regime thugs in search one of my cousins because he took part in the initial demonstrations that occurred on 19 Feb in Tripoli. He has been detained since then. If he’s been killed, then the family hasn’t to this day been given his corpse to hold a dignified burial. My cousin in only one of tens of thousands of pro-democracy activists reported missing since the crisis began.

      Hopefully, American college students could try to overcome the unfair financial strains inflicted on them by Wall Street’s capitalist menaces by using their right to free speech, to petition and demonstrate, among other democratic means, to bring about necessary change and reform. Fingers crossed, America’s college students won’t be met with the full might of their country’s military in the same manner Libya’s demonstrators were.

  28. I suspect the most important reason NATO is bombing Libya is not over oil but over the African Dinar. The USA, IMF and World Bank do not want Africa free of the collapsing US dollar.

    And Gaddafi wanted all of Africa using the Dinar.

    • 1. Libya is Africa’s largest exporter of oil, 1.7 million tons a day, which quickly was reduced to 300-400,000 ton due to US-NATO bombing. Libya exports 80% of its oil: 80% of that to several EU lands (32% Italy, 14% Germany, 10% France); 10% China; 5% USA.
      2. Gaddafi has been preparing to launch a gold dinar for oil trade with all of Africa’s 200 million people and other countries interested. He has been working with this since 2002 together with Malaysia. As of recently, only South Africa and the head of the League of African States were opposed. Before the invasion of Iraq, Hussein was in agreement as was Sudan, Burney, then Indonesia and United Arab Emirates, also Iran. French President Nickola Sarkozi called this, “a threat for financial security of mankind”. Much of France’s wealth—more than any other colonial-imperialist power—comes from exploiting Africa.
      (See: “The Libyan War, American Power and the Decline of the Petrodollar System” by Peter Dale Scott; “Bombing of Libya – punishment for Gaddafi for his attempt to refuse US dollar” as cited by Ellen Brown in “Libya: All About Oil, or All About Banking.” For this and other points see also: “Euro-US War on Libya: Official Lies and Misconceptions of Critics” by James Petras and see other articles on the subject.)
      3. Central Bank of Libya is 100% owned by state (since 1956) and is thus outside of multinational corporation control (BIS-Banking International Settlement rules for private interests). The state can finance its own projects and do so without interest rates, which reduce the costs by half of private banks. Libya’s central bank (with three branches in the east including Benghazi) has 144 tons of gold in its vaults, which it could use to start the gold dinar. (China, Russia, India, Iran are stocking great sums of gold rather than relying only on dollars.)
      4. Gaddafi-Central Bank used $33 billion, without interest rates, to build the Great Man-Made River of 3,750 kilometers with three parallel pipelines running oil, gas and water supplying 70% of the people (4.5 of its 6 million) with clean drinking and irrigation water. This provides adequate crops for the people and would be a competitive exporter of vegetables with ISRAEL and Egypt.
      The Central Bank also financed Africa’s first communication satellite with $300 million of the $377 cost. It started up for all Africa, December 26, 2007, thus saving the 45-African nations an annual fee of $500 million pocketed by Europe for use of its satellites and this means much less cost for telephones and other communication systems.
      5. The opposition led by former Gaddafi ministers and some Eastern clan leaders set up a central bank in Benghazi to replace Libya’s central bank even before they have set up a government or an organized army. It was immediately recognized by Paris stock exchange and soon other Westerners. This is the first time in history rebels have set up a bank before victory or before having a government.
      6. There is evidence from Gaddafi defectors (especially Nouri Mesmari), under France protection that France started preparing a Benghazi based rebellion against Gaddafi from November 2010, in order to stop his plans to switch from the dollar to a new gold currency. US politician, Rep. Dennis Kucinich confirms this. (See: “French plans to topple Gaddafi on track since last November” by Franco Bechis.)
      On December 23, 2010, Libyans Ali Ounes Mansour, Farj Charrant and Fathi Boukhris met with Mesrami and French officials in Paris. Those three are now part of the Benghazi-based leadership.
      US General Wesley Clark (ret.) told “Democracy Now” (2007) that ten days after September 11, 2011 another general had told him that the Bush government was planning to invade: Iraq, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan and Iran. What they have in common is that they were not members of banks within the BIS, and most of them have lots of oil. Hussein had agreed with France President De Gaulle to switch from dollars to Euros in oil trading six months before Bush invaded.
      7. While Gaddafi had turned much of his oil sales toward the West, inviting in many of the major oil companies for great profits (BP, EXXON Mobil, Shell, Total, etc), he did not join the US wars against Afghanistan and Iraq as did most of the oil rich Middle Eastern governments. Nor did he sign on with AFRICOM, a US-inspired pact oriented towards US economic and military benefit in Africa also oriented to isolate China from Africa’s natural resources. In fact, China has 50 major economic projects going in Libya with $18 billion investment. Before the US-NATO invasion, there were 30,000 Chinese workers on these and other projects. Much of China’s investment is destroyed.
      What the US-NATO-EU hopes to achieve is to eliminate the half-reliable partner Gaddafi and replace him with a neo-liberal oriented government that will do their bidding: sign in on AFRICOM, kick China out, reverse the government central bank to a BIS private enterprise, continue using dollars of course, and have the lackey leaders join in their permanent war age throughout the Middle East and Africa.

  29. Gaddafi sent Libyan troops illegally to their deaths in Chad and Uganda. He armed Sudanese, Mauritanian, Nigerian, Congolese and Somalia militias. He funded rigged-elections and crowned himself the King of African Kings. He exploited African migrant workers and offered Libyan nationality as an incentive for army recruits. He persecuted the indigenous Berber people in Nafousa Mountain, banned their language and cultural identity. During Gaddafi’s almost-42-year reign famine, HIV, mineral black-markets, people-trafficking, child labour and corruption have plagued the continent. Yet, miraculously, just over a month after Libyans stood up for their rights, as soon as the coalition began striking Gaddafi’s military targets in Libya, the African Dinar emerges as Gaddafi’s humble intention that he had planned, against NATO’s will, for the continent he so righteously served. It’s not like the African Union was funded by Gaddafi for any ulterior motives, is it? God forbid! All Gaddafi wanted was for Africans to have their very own Golden Dinar.

    • He didn’t “crown himself” the King of African Kings — he was elected.

      gosh, truth is tough when you’re psy-oping people, isn’t it?

      But, the US, NATO, IMF and the WB just hate elections they don’t rig themselves.

  30. Elected by the very African officials that he lathered with Libyan blood money? Elected by the very African officials that run governments in countries riddled with social and economic instability? Elected under the provision of the very alleged union that Gaddafi founded and funded? That’s one hell of an election; almost as convincing as George W. Bush’s second term in office!

  31. <== a better link..if you are the same person Mr. Senussi, there are already a few gaps in your story.

    also – have you looked at any of the footage – there is a whole page containing video after video of very explosive footage.

    I would appreciate your insight as to what this footage represents if it is not the NATO backed rebels.

    Thank you in advance.

  32. THIS is Enes’ bio:

    “I loathe all religious brunt, societal grudge and political fronts, advisors, spokesmen; budding c*nts, and the layman that falls for the same old stunts and does to a T what the top-down wants.”

    omg, is he calling women cunts?

    That’s who HuffPo is going to for opinions?


    how unenlightened; how typically misogynistic; and this is the guy whose opinion about videos he has no provenance over is supposed to have more weight than Susan’s?

    gimme a break.

    go back to your cave, neanderthal

    • Dear Matt, yes, I’m the person referred to in the BBC story, although I was neither a singer (in any professional capacity) nor based in Dubai as the BBC suggested at the time.

      As for the videos on the “obamaslibya” page, I left comments for each of the videos posted on the page as of July 14, 2011 at 9:24 pm. My comments are still posted on this feed. I will check the page for any additional clips that may have been added since, if that’s what you are refereeing to.


    • Rady, the potential profanity is a reference to “advisors and spokesmen”. The semicolon should affirm the intended context. This is by no means a biography. It is a personal summary of global politics, divisions, affiliations and the conflict these ensue.

      The quotes that you’ve referenced were from a brief (first time) news appearance in London on the 19 Feb. I took part in a demonstration outside the Libyan embassy in London after the initial violent crackdown on peaceful protests by Gaddafi’s forces took place through Libya. A few news teams covered the protest during the day. I caught one of the crews just before they left to try and get a word across but they had no time. They kindly took my number and I got a call later that afternoon to appear on the news. Perhaps you are right not to trust the word of a Libyan off the street.

      Ironically, my home town in Libya is Gherian (Gharyan) which means “caves” (yes, cave in plural!). It’s a city in the Western Mountains (Nafousa Mountains). I’ve lived in exile for the past 9 years all because Gaddafi regime can’t take a bunch of 17 year olds recording a heavy metal demo! Believe me, I cannot wait to go back to my cave. Hey, maybe you could come over for a visit one day (once all the fighting is over, of course).


    • I’m still not getting the hang of the “reply” button, but please view bellow response to this comment. Thanks.

  33. Gaps in his story? And here we find more deceit by defenders of NATO! Unequivocally and without reservation, I deny that these videos have been produced anywhere except Libya. They come from Refugees fleeing Rebel strongholds. Refugees have documented the abuses because they are so horrific that the refugees themselves appreciate that nobody could believe this stuff actually occurred, if they couldn’t see it with their own eyes.

    Libya’s rebels are terrorists and monsters, just savages. To complain about Gadhaffi when they’re doing this to the people? It’s grotesque, and they are Not Fit to Rule. Period. There’s no possibility of discussion on that point.

  34. Enes, you sound American. You have nothing in common with the people of Libya or the Arabs or Islam. It offends the quality of justice that somebody who spent a huge part of his life outside LIbya should feel entitled to return on the wings of a fighter plane, with bombs in the fuselage. And how deceptive to pretend in your first posts that you were a semi-educated person. Your last comment is completely dishonest. You don’t respect other people’s rights to form their own opinions. You can’t stand it. You’ve invested huge amounts of energy attacking me for exposing the truth about the Rebels.

    Not with my tax dollars, baby!

    • slindauer2010, I can assure you that, though the deceptive-coward-Neanderthal that I’ve been labelled, I am sadly not American.
      Perhaps poor command of a foreign language and frequent references to Allah and Muhammed (PBUH) would better suit the rightwing media-stereo typical persona of an Arab or Muslim in order for you to feel that you are actually communicating with one?
      I will be returning to Libya on road from Egypt. It’s an 18 hour ride (approx) and I did it plenty of times during the nineties when Libya was under UN sanctions; with the air embargo and all that business over the handing-over of the Lockerbie suspects.
      I don’t know what gave you the impression that I was a semi-educated person in my first comments but any less educated in my latest comments? I genuinely do expect and accept people from around the world to form arguably controversial opinions over current events in Libya. The world is full of conflict and masses will be naturally be inclined to take whichever side they feel aligned with (usually out of resentment to the opponent). Libyans wish the Arab league or African Union could pull their weight and do something instead of NATO. We wish hype-happy Fox and CNN weren’t doing their “taking-sides” coverage as it only undermines the integrity of our cause (considering how bias and untrue their coverage is of other conflicts!) The list of things that aren’t ideal goes on in Libya’s case. Given the scale of the challenge at hand, Libyans have plenty to worry about instead of public opinion. It’s not like Libya’s opposition have PR companies at their disposal; it’s very much a case of “beggars can’t be choosers” as far as international media coverage is concerned. Still, after a media blackout for over four decades I don’t think Libya has been in the headlines anywhere near as it should be.
      As for your repeated concern over your Tax dollars, understandable as it is, it could be that long standing US military grant-in-aid to Israel, Pakistan, Egypt, etc., along with the recent Wall Street bailout, just so happen to be more of a bummer over US government use of the hard earned tax payer dollars.
      None of my comments are intended as an attack on you or any other participants. I must admit that I was massively shocked the first time I came across this blog, hence the “OMG!” reference. I stumbled across it because I too recently started blogging out of sheer frustration at the amount of misunderstanding that had recently emerged. I genuinely appreciate the fact that, despite your convictions, you are allowing people to give and take on the topic. Just yesterday I found a blog called “libyasos” or “soslibya” on blogspot. It shares your unfavourable view of Gaddafi’s opposition (people like me). However, no comments are allowed all together on that blog. I am all for plurality in political or religious views, etc. so long as they don’t justify harming of those that oppose them. It would be great if Gaddafi‘s ideology was susceptible to peaceful political rivalry. Sadly, Gaddafi’s dogma is absolute; the blood of his opponents carries no sanctity.

  35. So you haven’t lived in Libya for more than 20 years? And so you have not ever experienced Gadhaffi’s boot in your back! Well, when you get home, you’ll find that his popularity has soared— and the only boot in the people’s back is YOURS. With yours bombs and destruction, YOU my friend are the source of all suffering in Libya.

    I point to Iraq to show that your arrival may in fact bring the destruction of the whole society. And your victory may not be sweet for long. A society of destroyed individuals creates bitter hatreds that won’t heal for generations to come.

    But what do you care? You’re wearing the boot.

    • I turned 30 this year. No, I haven’t lived in Libya for more than 20 years. 13 years in total. Shouldn’t my birthplace, family and heritage count? I don’t need to have lived in Libya to stay in tune with Gaddafi’s popularity. The number of HIV victims has soared over the past 30 years. Of course, this isn’t a good thing and people do not need to be HIV positive to realise the threat it poses.

      I don’t know what Gaddafi’s boot amounts to, but like many other Libyans, growing up with executed, exiled and imprisoned relatives is the norm. The insistence on Libya being another Iraq possibly reflects some sort of fundamental confusion between both of these nations, their peoples, the events that led to international use of force in both instances and the different manner in which armed intervention was implemented.

      There is nothing sweet about what’s going on in Libya. If anything, we will need a long time to recover from the damage inflicted by Gaddafi’s war machine and his tyrannical legacy that has demeaned Libyans for the past four decades. One of the reasons Gaddafi managed to stay in power for so long was the amount of hatred he instigated among Libyans, tribalism, discrimination, rivalry between east and west, treachery accusations, etc. However, credit to the man, his brutal oppression of the protests back in February has united Libyans like never before and helped new generations realise the nation that they belong to and the nation that belongs to them.

      You are right though, perhaps if I really did care I’d be fighting in the front lines. Nonetheless, maybe a care just enough to speak out against people that are going out of their way just to smear the reputation of Libyans that do care; Libyans that are losing their lives and limbs for their freedom and dignity.

  36. From Franklin Lamb in Tripoli, July 23, 2011:
    (So glad to see your family’s devoted to the welfare of the people of Libya:)

    Eastern Libya has a long history of antipathy toward the Tripoli government from the days (1951) when the crumbling British Empire installed, with Italy’s agreement, Idriss Senussi as Monarch to look after its interests. The King of Libya, Idriss I, was overthrown by the Colonel Qaddafi led Fatah Revolution in 1969. Today, one of the goals of some of the groups comprising the “National Transition Council” is the restoration of the Monarchy, promoted by the Senussi tribe.

    • The “Senussiya Movement” (political and military), though founded in Al-Baydha east of Libya, comprised of Libyans from all over the country. Political recognition by Italy was inevitable given the 40 year occupation. The prince of Barqa (Eastern Libya) along with Libyans in the south and west seized the opportunity of ally operations in North Africa against the fascists to end the 40 years of confined military resistance to the Italians. Some Libyans thought otherwise and fought alongside the Italians. Prince Idris’s decision proved successful and the unity of Libya and declaration of independence under UN supervision saw the prince of Barqa crowned as King of the formally united Libya.

      Gaddafi’s coup, coordinated by several rightwing meddlers of the time (see a book called ‘The Taxi Papers’ for further reference) was triggered by several factors. Mainly, the discovery of oil resources in Libya during the early 60’s; until then, Libya’s biggest export was scrap-metal from WWII. Armand Hammer’s budgetary proposal for Libya’s newly discovered natural resource was rejected by king Idris (American interests weren’t among the king’s priorities). The irrational and irresponsible of policy issued by Libya’s second to last Prime Minister during the monarch, to expel Libyan Jews in protest over treatment of Palestinians by newly founded state of Israel, also put the king in the bad books of post war global politics.

      Naturally, there have always been royalists in Libya as in any other monarchy. However, Gaddafi’s initial embrace by the Libyan people was based on the promise of a people’s republic. The Libyan people at the time were so naive to think that a hand full of low ranking officers in their late twenty’s fresh from postgraduate military studies and training in the UK would really put Libya on a par with Jamal Abdul Naser’s Egypt of the day. However, as far as Libyans were concerned, Libya did change from Monarch to Republic and bravado on Arab nationalism was at an all time high. The flag changed to an Egyptian Flag imitation (without the eagle in the middle). In fact, it wasn’t until 1977 after the alleged nationalisation of the oil industry (exclusive privatisation for Gaddafi’s family and loyal worshipers) and the imprisonment and assassination of plot-oblivious military and political coup contributors that Gaddafi unveiled his “Jamahiriya”, green flag and green book master plan. The rest, as all Libyans know, was history.

      The current people’s revolution, and the National Transitional Council that formed in its wake to fill the alleged political vacuum that the world feared would plunge Libya into a failed state after Gaddafi’s fall; has no royalist agenda. It merely aims to re-establish the people’s republic Gaddafi himself falsely promised in 1969. The flag that the revolution has endorsed is Libya’s flag of independence; not a flag of the monarchy. The “Senussiya Movement” had a separate flag to this, similar to that of the Egyptian monarch.

      With all due respect to Franklin Lamb, the only concern American politicians had and still have in the Middle East, whether openly rightwing or so called leftists, is the persistence of the modern state of Israel. Libya’s national cement and steel products, traded mostly on the black market in Libya itself, have been in steady flow to Israel in aid of its illegal settlements and dividing wall. Apart from doing much of Mossad’s dirty work in crippling Palestinian diplomacy, Gaddafi also, very successfully, reduced what little legitimate political or military formations the Palestinians had in the early 70’s and derailed them to the outlawed terrorist groups that linger to this day. That has seen to the non-recognition of Palestine as a sovereign state by the United Nations to this day. Quite amazing when you consider Gaddafi’s military and financial support of Sudanese separatists over the years and the speed in which South Sudan has gained UN recognition. Then again, perhaps, control over the Nile is a vested interest to various contenders in the region.

      Please spare me the foreign-intelligence-induced theories on Libya. Gaddafi is a self-indulged delusional psychopathic puppet, and Libyans, quite frankly, have had enough of his perverted self-obsession and violent and reckless hijacking of Libya’s reputation and resources for the satisfaction of rival political interest from across the world. Libya lived its happiest times between its independence and the dreaded discovery of oil.

      For the record, I am not from the former royal family. Senussi is my grandfather’s name. It just so happens that Gaddafi issued a law on banning family names from formal documents at the time my last Libyan passport was issued. The name has stuck with me since then.

  38. Libya S.O.S. — I am forwarding your videos to Federal with a request to post them. We will make sure this horror is exposed. They’re paying attention in Europe, too.

    • The first one cutting of the head ( OMG) the people talking were not talking in LIBYAN! so they were not Libyan.. the same as the one with this guy calling for jihad or whatever. second in that same video they were show pictures of private protection groups that were with press media and calling them CIA! I am not saying that the CIA was not there, but these videos is just another propaganda!!

      the cannibalism video is not Cannibalism.. that is an old video years ago from the Hamis brigate training their new recruits to eat raw DOG meat! It is horrific, but its true.. now we have seen this same video 3-4 years ago, it was Gadafi military showing how tough the hamis brigade are..

      Nobody is saying that the other side is an angel, but this propaganda here is really bad!! shame on your for twisting the true to serve your ideology. If you have real facts then fine bring them but these videos are Pure awful propaganda and lies.

  39. slindauer2010 Thank you.
    Almost every video have decription. If you need some more information
    I will send to you.
    All the best in this dificul time!

  40. This is BS!
    Based on the dialect the people were speaking during the hanging and beheading, the uniforms of the soldier who were forcing the soldier to cannibalize and, surprisingly, the cleanliness of the torture facility for the boy, everything points toward the regime, not the rebels. This is a very poor attempt to galvanize support for an already illegitimate regime.

  41. It is very sad to see people like Rady try to de-legitimize someone with clearly a higher education in Libyan affairs, and a stronger intellect. You supposed truth bearers resort to name-calling and labeling? While not outwardly supporting Gaddaffi you seem to think that the Rebels (with MUCH of the countries support, not all though…) are the real enemies? That is like saying the Chinese were wrong to hang Japanese infiltrators in the 1930’s. Of course violence is wrong, of course an “eye for an eye” is wrong, but what the fuck is wrong with you people? Do we now have to prove hitler was a bad man, that Kim Jong Il is a bad man, that George Bush was a bad man? How jaded are you people? Grow up….

    • nice try. I have called no one any names.

      • Randy you are sooo wrong in this.. You have your Ideology Blind you on the facts of these Videos.. These Videos are BULL!! The dialect is not EVEN LIBYAN for gods sake!! and the rest OMG!!
        You wanna call NATO and CIA as Criminals fine, but Gaddafi’ mean are worse.. and I am in noway say that everybody is good from the otherside, I am just saying those videos here are Pure BS and real propaganda.

  42. Fascinating how desperately NATO supporters are fighting to deny that Libyan Rebels are Islamic radicals and Al Qaeda figure who strongly desire to implement Islamic Shariah. NATO should admit what it’s forced on Libya at gun-point. Then again, NATO should not be proud that Libyan women are going to be huge losers in NATO’s experiment. There will be much less freedom in the “New Libya.” The Rebels are already running around town arresting Tribal Leaders and community activists, throwing everybody in prison. Franklin Lamb witnessed an 86 year old Sheikh pulled off the street and thrown in the back of a car that sped off.

  43. See Al Qaeda Commander, released from Gitmo, now leads NATO invasion of Tripoli

    Known terrorists are being used in the NATO invasion of Libya — I can’t think of a better argument that NATO is evil. Water seeks its own level, after all.

    Ben, so happy to see you supporting Al Qaeda. You must be really proud of yourself, especially after how many US soldiers were killed by Al Qaeda.

    Gosh, if you think empire building is good then you’re the one who needs to grow up.

  47. Friends dont know whatever it is..Need to know the truth..Its our human responsibility.. Arrest those individulas who were doing canibalism and punish them severley.. Its your duty to do that all of you..Hell Our world is going to end now..if such sick people exist..We can tbe quite.. Let us all try to find who the real culprits are.. The goveremnt also needs to be be strong to identify the culprits. .Oil should not be the agenda but good human behaviour is..

  48. First, let me say that two of those videos are not from Libya!
    The first one cutting of the head ( a discussing video) the people talking were not talking in LIBYAN! so they were not Libyan.. the same as the one with this guy calling for jihad or whatever. second in that same video they were show pictures of private protection groups that were with press media and calling them CIA! I am not saying that the CIA was not there, but these videos is just another propaganda!!

    Now the cannibalism video is not Cannibalism.. that is an old video years ago from the Hamis brigate training their new recruits to eat raw DOG meat! It is horrific, but its true.. now we have seen this same video 3-4 years ago, it was Gadafi military showing how tough the hamis brigade are..

    Nobody is saying that the other side is an angel, but this propaganda here is really bad!! shame on your for twisting the true to serve your ideology. If you have real facts then fine bring them but these videos are Pure awful propaganda and lies.

    • Funny that pro-Rebel defenders should peek out from under their rocks at this moment. I am writing a follow up to

      These are definitely the Rebels!! This is definitely a Libyan dialect— And your writing style is unmistakably American— not foreign, not Arabic.

      Shame on you for supporting beheadings & castrations & rapes as weapons of War to break the spirit of the people. .
