Clearing up the latest media rubbish on Libya

While the journalists suffering from cabin fever in Tripoli’s Rixos hotel publish their dreams that imperialism’s lackies (the “rebel rats”) have taken Zawiya, Ghuriyan and Sorman, they are ignoring a decisive moment in the crisis.
That is the liberation of the hitherto rebel-held area of Misratah. Last night the Libyan army moved into the centre of the city and now the rebels are trapped between Misratah and Tawergha. 75 per cent of the city has been secured including the port, which was a lifeline for the rebels to receive shipments of arms and other supplies, as well as being a key transport route for them.

Al Jazeera Misinformation: The Truth About Libya’s Ambassador to Bangladesh, A. H. Elimam
GR Editorial Note:
The following text is a statement by Mathaba. The Centre for Research on Globalization’s Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, who was hosted by Al Jazeerah to talk about Libya, also has received reports from inside Libya that are conflicting with some of Al Jazeera’s reporting about the situation in Libya.
See the following article: Libya: Is Washington Pushing for Civil War to Justify a US-NATO Military Intervention?
As an additional note, the Arabian Gulf is a reference to the Persian Gulf.
Late on Monday, Ahmed Attia Hamed Elimam, Libya’s ambassador to Bangladesh, resigned his position as an ambassador for Libya’s foreign ministry.
Al Jazeerah, based in Qatar a U.S. client state in the Arabian Gulf, and which never criticises the Qatari regime nor its subservience as a U.S. outpost for the Arabian Gulf region, said this was in protest against the killing of his family members by government soldiers. This is not true, and is part of a widespread campaign of disinformation by Jazeerah and other MSM networks which the Gaddafi family have themselves failed to address.
Elimam, who is also a Mathaba Correspondent, resigned because no Libyan can stand the ongoing massacre that is taking place in his country.
