US media on Gaddafi: In praise of lynching


26 October, 2011





The mainstream US media has reacted to Muammar Gaddafi's brutal lynching with a tidal wave of cheers and approval, trumpeting the Colonel抯 death as the start of a new era for Libya.

璘S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led the triumphant celebrations of Gaddafi抯 death with her immortal line, 揥e came, we saw, he died!?- words which are sure to be remembered far beyond America抯 shores.


Joy at the killing of the killing of the African leader spread like wildfire through the US media.

揑t cost us a trillion dollars to get Saddam and a billion dollars to get Gaddafi,?remarked television host Bill Maher.

揂nd Libya says they抮e going to pay back the billion that we spent, too. So it抯 going to end up being sort of free for nothing,?cheered the host of MSNBC抯 The Rachel Maddow Show.

Senator Lindsey Graham gave it to us straight:

揕et抯 get in on the ground, there is a lot of money to be made in the future in Libya, there is a lot of oil to be produced,?he said.

Not a single American soldier killed and great opportunities ahead ?it seems like the perfect new warfare, and one that serves as a sharp lesson to others.

揑 think it sends an important message to other leaders in the region,?lectured a CNN commentator.

揃oy, I tell you, these Arab dictators ?they抮e not very original. Just like Saddam Hussein, caught him in a hole,?sneered Bill Maher.

揗uammar Gaddafi was a bad guy,?Fox concluded.


Although many Libyans would argue whether he was really so bad, considering what Gaddafi did for the country抯 social welfare and women抯 rights, in the eyes of the US media, he was the ultimate evil.


揑t is a demonization, every step of the way, against Gaddafi. In the media today always one man, one leader of a country, becomes a justification for destroying an entire country,?acknowledged Sara Flounders, member of the Workers World Party.

For a few days, the media savored the bloody images of Gaddafi抯 killing and laughed at similarities between his capture in a ditch and that of Saddam Hussein.

In the eyes of the American public, the celebration of Gaddafi抯 killing effectively erases the bad taste left by the NATO campaign ?no mention of Libyan civilians killed in NATO strikes, not much talk about the destruction to the country caused by those strikes. Gaddafi抯 killing is presented as a triumph, creating a perception that somehow it is perfectly OK to invade a country and help its leader be lynched. But if it is presented as such a success ?doesn't it become more tempting to try the same methods somewhere else?

Russians are proud of world coverage by Russia Today and great leader Mr Putin.

Great leader Mr Putin himself expressed disgust on US barbaric media.

Putin slams media for showing Gaddafi抯 death


26 October, 2011

The broadcasting of explicit footage of Muammar Gaddafi抯 death was revolting, declared Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

揚eople within the journalistic community should realize what they are doing and bear moral responsibility for that,?Putin said at a session of the coordinating council of Russia抯 Popular Front. 揂ll the world TV channels showed this man, stained with blood, wounded but still alive and being clubbed to death ?this is disgusting.?

The prime minister added that none of the world religions would approve of such a thing.

"I am not talking about the political aspect,?Putin stressed. 揟his is a separate topic ?a civil war is underway there. But it抯 not good that all this appears on the screens for millions of people, including children, to see."

The shocking video hit television screens on October 20, when the deposed Libyan leader, who had ruled the country for 42 years, died shortly after being captured alive by National Transitional Council fighters near his hometown of Sirte. The circumstances of his capture are still unclear, but NATO aircraft are confirmed to have fired on his convoy as it drove from the city.

Gaddafi抯 body remained on display at a shopping center in the city of Misrata before being buried at a secret location in the Libyan desert on October 25.

Gaddafi sodomized: Video shows abuse frame by frame (GRAPHIC)

An analysis appears to confirm that a rebel fighter sodomized Gaddafi with a knife.

Tracey SheltonOctober 24, 2011


THE RISE AND FALL OF GADDAFI: An image captured off a cellular phone camera shows the arrest of Libya's strongman Moamer Kadhafi in Sirte on October 20, 2011. A Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) commander had told AFP that Kadhafi was captured as his hometown Sirte was falling, adding that the ousted strongman was badly wounded.

SIRTE, Libya ?An analysis of video obtained by GlobalPost from a rebel fighter who recorded the moment when Col. Muammar Gaddafi was first captured confirms that another rebel fighter, whose identity is unknown, sodomized the former leader as he was being dragged from the drainpipe where he had taken cover.

A frame by frame analysis of this exclusive GlobalPost video clearly shows the rebel trying to insert some kind of stick or knife into Gaddafi's rear end.

Full coverage: Death of Muammar Gaddafi

GlobalPost correspondent Tracey Shelton said there is some question as to whether the instrument was a knife from the end of a machine gun, which Libyans call a Bicketti, or some kind of stick.

This latest video discovery comes as international and human rights groups call for a formal investigation into how the former Libyan leader was killed. In video clips that have emerged of his capture, Gaddafi can be seen injured but alive. Later he is seen with what appears to be gunshot wounds to his head and chest. According to the Geneva Conventions, however, abuse of prisoners under any circumstance is not permissable.

Here is a frame by frame look at the attack. Below the frames is video decoding the cell phone footage of the capture. And, finally, at the bottom is the full video. You can see the attempt to sodomize Gaddafi at the 16 second mark.

WARNING: Extremely graphic
