McCain’s “heroes” torch, loot “liberated” Libyan town

with 2 comments

Whatever about John McCain, the New York Times appears to be losing some of its enthusiasm for the Libyan “rebels.” C.J. Chivers reports from the “liberated” town of Qawalish in Western Libya:

The rebels began helping themselves to the fuel in Qawalish’s only gas station. Then an armed rebel wheeled about the road on a children’s bicycle he had apparently just taken from a home. A short while later rebels were shooting padlocks off the metal doors to shops, and beginning to sweep through them. At the time, rebels said they were carefully searching and securing the town. But their behavior soon raised questions, including: Was something besides military necessity taking hold?

The next day the questions became more pressing. Houses that had not been burning the previous day were afire, and shops were being aggressively looted by armed men in rebel attire. Every few minutes, a truck would pass by on the road, headed back toward Zintan loaded with what seemed to be stolen goods. Animal feed appeared to be a favorite item to carry off. Several trucks an hour carried away bales of hay and sacks of grain. The rebels at the checkpoints at the town’s edge did nothing to stop any of this. The town, in short, was being looted by the rebels, and vandalized, and worse.

  1. I’m sure once there objective is achieved, these very Heroes will become dreaded ‘Terrorists.’ American duplicity at its best.

  2. Actually, if you look at McCain’s career, you’ll see that it’s more a case of Israeli duplicity. Check out what Jeff Gates has written about the Senator from Arizona’s connections to the Zionist crime syndicate.
