Nato leaders, opposition groups and the media have produced a stream of stories since the start of the insurrection on February 15, claiming the Gaddafi regime has ordered mass rapes, used foreign mercenaries and employed helicopters against civilian protesters. An investigation by Amnesty International has failed to find evidence for these human rights violations and in many cases has discredited or cast doubt on them. It also found indications that on several occasions the rebels in Benghazi appeared to have knowingly made false claims or manufactured evidence. This being a tech site, the topic is bit off by a mile, but I couldn't resist posting it, just so the readers may at least learn how the 'western corporate' media distorts facts, fabricates baseless allegations, and invent stories to justify what is unjustifiable or rather to cover up their real intentions, that is 'smash and grab' missions to loot all what they can in true imperial style. Now, having said that this story repeats itself again and again, i.e. these same powers creates puppets like Qaddafi, then once they are of no more use, dispose them off and find new ones.
