    The bodies of 53 people, believed to be supporters of ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, has been found in a hotel that was under the control of anti-Gadhafi fighters, Human Rights Watch said Monday. The rights group said it found the bodies clustered together at Hotel Mahari in Sirte on Sunday. About 20 residents were putting the bodies in body bags to prepare them for burial when Human Rights Watch found them. "We found 53 decomposing bodies, apparently (Gadhafi) supporters, at an abandoned hotel in Sirte, and some had their hands bound behind their backs when they were shot," said...

    And in a butcher shop (!) What's up next, string 'em from a bridge...? They were screaming "Allahu Akbar" when they finished him off- just like Al Qaeda does it, how bout that. While we still do not know who the rebels we just boosted to power actually are (yet plenty of reason to suspect the worst- i.e. packed with AQ and Muslim Brotherhood types), hey, we're about to find out.  Alas, so far-so bad, as they're already committing war crimes, up to and including summary executions... which appears to be just what happened to ole Muammar and out-of-luck son Mutassim. The UN and ICC suspect as much, as...

    Rebels fighting to topple Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi committed unlawful killings and torture, Amnesty International said in a report released on Tuesday. The 100-plus page report, based on three months of investigation in Libya, draws no equivalency between the crimes of Gadhafi loyalists and those of the former rebels, who now hold power in Tripoli: The Gadhafi forces' crimes were greater, the list of them is longer, and they may have amounted to crimes against humanity, the report said. But it said the crimes of the rebels were not insignificant.

    Episode three of the hard hitting new series on youtube which shows how socialized medicine and gun control lead to genocidal tyrannies that destroy God given rights. In this episode featuring scenes from Psychiatry an Industry of Death, we see healthcare in Germany and how psychiatrists using the false science of eugenics contributed to the holocaust and how liberals intimidated the Nuremberg Judges to spare several violent nazi doctors from their just rewards. We then go inside a universal healthcare facility to see what is in store for undesirables...

    Seven years after the release of shocking images of tortured prisoners in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, the Supreme Court has turned back the appeal of 26 inmates from that infamous facility who wanted to sue two military contractors for damages. The military's official investigation revealed "numerous incidents of sadistic, blatant, and wanton criminal abuses" committed by military personnel and civilian contractors who provided support services at the prison. More than two dozen soldiers were reprimanded or court-martialed for their conduct. But those who were tortured want to sue two firms that hired the civilians who helped the military with...

    BELGRADE (Reuters) – Bosnian Serb wartime general Ratko Mladic was arrested in Serbia Thursday after years on the run from international genocide charges, opening the way for the once-pariah state to approach the European mainstream. Mladic, accused of orchestrating the massacre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the town of Srebrenica and a brutal 43-month siege of Sarajevo during Bosnia's 1992-5 war, was found in a farmhouse owned by a cousin, a police official said. "Mladic was handcuffed and whisked away," said the official, who said he been cooperative during the arrest. The formerly burly and widely-feared general was...

    Ratko Mladic, wanted for genocide during the Bosnian war in the 1990s, has been arrested in Serbia. Serbian President Boris Tadic said the process to extradite the former Bosnian Serb army chief to the war crimes tribunal in The Hague was under way. Gen Mladic is accused over the massacre of at least 7,500 Bosnian Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995. He was the most prominent Bosnian war crimes suspect at large since the arrest of Radovan Karadzic in 2008. The detention, the Serbian leader said, closed one chapter in Serbian history, bringing the country and the...

    The International Criminal Court prosecutor asked judges Monday to issue arrest warrants for Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and two other senior members of his regime, accusing them of committing crimes against humanity by targeting civilians in a crackdown against rebels. Luis Moreno-Ocampo says Gadhafi, his son Seif al-Islam Gadhafi and intelligence chief Abdullah al-Sanoussi ordered, planned and participated in illegal attacks. He said Gadhafi's forces attacked civilians in their homes, shot at demonstrators with live ammunition, shelled funeral processions and deployed snipers to kill people leaving mosques. Judges must now evaluate the evidence before deciding whether to confirm the charges...
  • Have the Libyan Rebels Formed a Death Squad to Punish Qaddafi Loyalists?

    The New York Times ^ | MAY 11, 2011
    The bodies of two interrogators who worked for Muammar Qaddafi were found in fields outside the rebel stronghold Benghazi. The execution-style killings and kidnapping by masked, armed men have led to rumors — in the already-paranoid city — of a death squad hunting down forces loyal to Qaddafi. Prosecutors are investigating four such attacks, including another murder, and the possibility that Islamists imprisoned by Qaddafi are seeking revenge. For weeks, opposition authorities have been trying to round up suspected Qaddafi loyalists they say were trying to overthrow their transitional government. But rebels say their security forces are not involved in...
  • Jay Carney: Bin Laden was unarmed when shot

    Jimmie tackled some of this earlier but here’s the vid from today’s presser for those who missed it. If the SEALs’ tactics on the ground had been as sloppy and confused as the White House’s handling of the media aftermath, Bin Laden and his crew would be dragging their bodies through the streets of Abbottabad as I write this. How did we go from “Bin Laden had a weapon and was using his wife as a human shield” to “Bin Laden was unarmed and didn’t have a human shield” in the span of 24 hours when there’s apparently helmet-cam footage...

    GENEVA – The U.N.'s top human rights official says the global body wants details on the death of Osama bin Laden. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay says the raid on the al-Qaida leader's hideaway in Pakistan "was a complex operation, and it would be helpful if we knew the precise facts surrounding his killing." Pillay has frequently stressed the importance of respecting international law during counter-terror operations

    How ironic that Richard Goldstone's retraction of his libelous report alleging Israeli "war crimes" -- commissioned by the UN Human Rights Council -- came just two days after the Obama administration announced it would seek re-election to that same body. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Goldstone's stunning admission, in a Washington Post oped, that -- contrary to his report's conclusion -- Israel did not intentionally target civilians during the 2008 war in Gaza. But Netanyahu is being way too charitable. After all, Goldstone is merely acknowledging what was apparent to nearly any reasonable and objective observer. That it took...

    Nader: Obama should be impeached for 'war crimes' By Jordan Fabian - 03/20/11 03:47 PM ET Former presidential candidate Ralph Nader says that President Obama should be impeached for committing war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. The consumer advocate and former presidential candidate said in an interview that aired Friday that Obama has committed "war crimes" on the same level as President Bush. "Why don't we say what's on the minds of many legal experts; that the Obama administration is committing war crimes and if Bush should have been impeached, Obama should be impeached," Nader said in an interview with...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- The U.N. resolution imposing tough sanctions against Libya marked the first time that the United States has given its support to the International Criminal Court and signified a remarkable turnaround, though it includes a key exemption demanded by the Obama administration. The resolution adopted unanimously by the Security Council on Saturday refers the actions of Moammar Gadhafi's regime since Feb. 15 to the court's prosecutor who must decide whether there is enough evidence of alleged crimes against humanity to warrant a full investigation.

    You may have missed it, but this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) didn’t just play host to a myriad of presidential candidates, but to famed actor Richard Dreyfuss too. Dreyfuss didn’t have a speaking slot at the premier conservative gathering, but rather was milling around the conference with his friend Roger Simon of PJTV. Is the star of Jaws, Close Encounters, and W even a conservative? No, not in the least. In an impromptu interview with HUMAN EVENTS at CPAC, Dreyfuss strangely described his political leanings as “libo-conservo-rado-middle-of-the-road-o.” When asked how he felt being around so many right-of-center individuals,...

    The Report by Ari Bussel A local group of Israel Deniers calling itself “Jews for Peace” has taken upon itself to analyze, once a month, a portion of the Goldstone Report. The Report is highly critical of Israel’s conduct during Operation Cast Lead (12/2008 – 1/2009), accusing the Jewish State of “serious violations of international humanitarian and international human rights law.” Head of the UN Fact Finding Mission Justice Richard Goldstone presented the report of the Mission to the Human Rights Council in Geneva on 29 September 2009, urging the Council and the international community as a whole to put...

    A suspected war criminal who allegedly played a key role in the slaughter of 40,000 civilians in Sri Lanka has landed a cushy job at the United Nations - with full diplomatic immunity. Shavendra Silva arrived in New York after his troops defied international pleas and shelled a no-fire zone packed with women, children and elderly refugees, according to observers. [This is no shock to anyone. The Oil-for-Food scam was the biggest financial swindle of the century; U.N. agents molested children in Africa; the U.N. is an anti-Semitic and anti-American organization run by Third World thugs which is completely dysfunctional....

    JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. — The U.S. soldiers allegedly floated a plan as simple as it was savage: to randomly target and kill an Afghan civilian, and to get away with it. For weeks, according to Army charging documents, rogue members of a platoon from the 5th Stryker Combat Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, hatched the idea. Then, one day last winter, a solitary Afghan man approached them in the village of La Mohammed Kalay. The "kill team" activated the plan. One soldier created a ruse that they were under attack, tossing a grenade on the ground. Then others opened fire....

    The Justice Department's dogged quest to root out alleged war criminals raises the question of when it will begin investigating the Obama administration. Mr. Obama's increasingly public dirty little secret is that he has widened the use of covert actions against terrorists that were pioneered by his predecessor, President George W. Bush. Mr. Obama's secret war is disturbing mainly to his left-wing base, whose members apparently believed the sanctimonious rhetoric of the early days of the administration, when it seemed that war-crimes show trials against members of the Bush national security team were imminent.... Mr. Obama discovered that there are...
