Video Proof of Torture in Libya

A video speaking truth has been leaked to the world. Despite all the angry denials made by pro-NATO sources and people, proof of the torture of black Africans has emerged showing what the so-called rebels behind the murder of Col. Mummer Gaddafi and Libya are all about.

The video shows Black Africans being held in cages with their hands bound so they cannot defend themselves. All the while a man is yelling instructions at them. The full video available on the LiveLeak website shows a black man being forced to eat the old Libyan flag with someone yelling, “Eat the flag, you dog. Patience you dog, patience. God is Great”. In another moment the torturers force the group of captive black Africans to jump up and down with pieces of the green cloth still in their mouths. Many people can be seen standing around the cage jeering the men and applauding those committing the crime. Hundreds of these men have been tortured by the NATO backed forces on the false claim that they were mercenaries.

Some of the black migrants managed to flee into neighbouring Mali and Niger, but more than 5,000 were detained. They face mass execution, beatings, and revenge killings, according to an Al Jazeera report published back in September.

Early on crimes by NATO backed forces were delivered to the media. Unfortunately the media did not report them, instead they repeated them as false allegations with no proof. Some media, non-corporate and non-Western did try to bring attention to these crimes. Fortunately the NATO backed media were able to keep the incidents quite for the most part.

“At the beginning of the crisis, there was vastly exaggerated propaganda for which the highest level of the National Transitional Council should take some responsibility because they largely contributed to that unfounded propaganda,” said Donatella Rovera, Amnesty’s senior crisis response advisor.

Finally Amnesty International got around to acknowledging that these tortures were being committed. For the longest time during the war they said absolutely nothing about the crimes of NATO backed rebels, and the bombings NATO actually carried out. Instead they kept insisting Libyan leader Col. Gaddafi was slaughtering people based on word of mouth, not actual reports. Its only AFTER the invasion by NATO that any acknowledgement of these crimes by NATO came forward. During the invasion mass graves of Gaddafi civilian supporters were found, but Amnesty International looked the other way.

Despite all the angry imperialist rhetoric and lies by the right wing and the phony left in the West, these crimes were carried out. For as long as possible Western powers and their puppets in the media have been attempting to deny these crimes, now the whole world will be able to see the real face of Western imperialism and the crimes it tries to cover up.
