LIBYA: The Real Deal


 on Aug 22, 2011

The mainstream media has failed to report on the death toll and destruction that occurred in the recent takeover of the Libyan capital of Tripoli. Many say that the rebels would not been able to take over the capital city without the assistance of NATO. According to civilians on the ground, everything was a target – including many international journalists. Why is the US media not reporting on the causalities of this occupation? Pepe Esobar, correspondent for Asia Times, gives us more insight on the recent happenings.

The mainstream media is declaring victory over Moammar Gaddafi in Tripoli. NATO bombed the Libyan capital this weekend and many say there are about 1,300 reported dead and over 5,000 injured. Why isn’t the mainstream media reporting all the facts? Here to discuss this with us is Susan Lindauer, former CIA asset, to give us the details on what’s going on in Tripoli.

Media ignores Tripoli Bloodshed


 on Aug 22, 2011

Over the weekend NATO bombed the Libyan capital which assisted in the rebel takeover in Tripoli. The mainstream media is calling the action a NATO victory over Moammar Gaddafi. Is the mainstream media failing to report on the real issues? Did NATO protect the innocent civilians as they said they would? Mahdi Nazemroaya, a journalist for the Center for Research on Globalization, is on the ground giving us his first-hand experience from Tripoli.

Marauders on the streets of Tripoli


Updated: Aug. 24, 2011


Just days ago there were supposed rebel’s mass celebrations of victories in Misrata while there were massive crowds in Tripoli 2 days ago celebrating government victories over the rebels. The vast majority of people in Tripoli especially detest the rebels. All the major tribes in Libya detest the rebels and detest NATO.

The idea that there would be a mass celebratory crowd in Tripoli now celebrating whatever is put across as a rebel victory – who knows what is really going on – I don’t think there has been any rebel victory I think it is very chaotic and violent, so we have to wait and see how this plays out. There may be lots of people in the street, but they’re certainly not supporting the rebels…

Can I read you something from an email from Mahdi Nazemroaya who is there in Tripoli with Lizzie Phelan, Franklin Lamb is also there… Mahdi’s overnight email said, “NATO landed insurgents in Tripoli harbor. They are attacking my hotel. I almost got shot. They are still lying a lot about claims of controlling the capital, but we are in danger”. Mahdi also asked about any help Press TV can supply to get him, Franklin and Lizzie out of the city; they need whatever help they can get and as Lizzie said on air just moments ago she is afraid to leave the hotel because she is a marked woman and Mahdi and Franklin are marked men.
