‘With Friends Like These’ (Part I): Gaddafi Reportedly Sodomized by U.S.-Backed Libyan Rebels

New video obtained by  Global Post appears to show former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi being sodomized with a knife or a stick by one of the rebels who captured him in Sirte last Thursday.

Global Post has made a frame-by-frame analysis the video, shot with a cell phone, and has concluded that the rebel, whose identity is unknown, committed the war crime as Gaddafi was pulled up from the drainpipe in which he’d been hiding. The frame-by-frame breakdown clearly shows the crime happening, with blood coming from Gaddafi’s rear end.

According to the Global Post, there is some uncertainty about what type of weapon was utilized in the horrific sexual assault:

GlobalPost correspondent Tracey Shelton said there is some question as to whether the instrument was a knife from the end of a gun, which Libyans call a Bicketti, or a utility tool known as a Becker Knife and Tool, which is popularly known as a BKT.

Under the Geneva Conventions, any abuse of prisoners is forbidden. Human rights groups have called for an investigation of Gaddafi’s death. Captured alive, it appears as if the former dictator was executed at point-blank range with a bullet to the head. If this is true, it does not bode well for the rebels who claim to be rebuilding Libya with respect for democracy and human rights but who seem to be capable of barbarism equal to or greater than that displayed by the tyrant they are replacing.

    You can bet your bottom dollar support from NATO came on the condition that Gaddafi was to be summarily executed at the earliest opportunity.
