Human Rights Watch says it has collected evidence of two previously unreported cases in which U.S. agents used water boarding or a similar harsh interrogation technique on Libyan militants held by American forces in Afghanistan.
A new video footage of former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s violent death on October has surfaced, allegedly providing a clearer view of how once the strongman of Libya met his end. Activist Sami-al-Hamwi tweeted the link of the video remarking that someone should show the video to Syrian President Bashar al Assad as a reminder of what befell another Middle East dictator.
Only recently there were reports of Syrian Hospital turning into torture chambers. And now this video has emerged. In this video, black African migrants are treated like apes by the rebels. They are being forced to eat Muammar Gaddafi’s flag.
In the video a group of men are seen encaged and sitting on dirt with their hands tied behind them. Some even have their feet tied. And all of them have one thing common, they have a green flag in their mouth. The flag is that of Muammar Gaddafi and it not being used to gag these black migrants. Instead, they are being made to eat the flag forcibly. A man off-camera demands that the men eat these all-green Libyan flags which were used under Gaddafi’s rule. “Eat the flag, you dog. Patience you dog, patience,” he says.
First there was a barrage of nasty characters on “Da Ali G Show.” Then he challenged the world’s tolerance for grotesque nudity on the big screen with “Borat” and “Bruno.”
News of Muammar Gaddafi having a photo album with “page after page” of pictures of former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice really isn’t a surprise. The media has jumped on the topic because frankly it is odd, but odd doesn’t equal surprise. MORE
The same TV station used by Col. Muammar Gaddafi to encourage his supporters to fight and die for him is now flying the flag of the Libyan rebels. The BBC reported that the Al-Jamahiriya TV station, known for its pro-Gaddafi stance, began flying the flag used by rebels in Libya on Thursday. Reportedly “Libya Satellite” has been written on the flag. MORE
The US said the meeting reiterated its demand that Col Gaddafi step down, and involved no negotiations. MORE
