    Libyan rebels accused of arbitrary arrests, torture - CNN.com

    "(CNN) -- As NATO airstrikes continue to pound pro-government facilities in Libya, Human Rights Watch charged Sunday that Libyan rebels are arbitrarily detaining dozens of civilians suspected of loyalty to ruler Moammar Gadhafim, holding them without trial or due process.

    At least one person is thought to have died in custody, with his body showing signs of torture, the group said in a report based on visits to rebel-held parts of Libya.

    It is difficult to tell exactly how many civilians are being held without charge because some are held by militias and because the rebels do not clearly distinguish between civilian detainees and captured pro-Gadhafi fighters, Human Rights Watch said."

    This is the way the people are in that part of the world, whether Ghaddafi is running Libya or not they are going to be killing and torturing each other, hell we got rid of Saddam and found out the new Iraqi government still has secret prisons where they interrogate and kill people. Thats just the way they roll.

    A $Billion to bomb the hell out of Libya this year. And for what? No one has even given a coherent or logical explanation for why we're bombing & killing over there. What a wasteful tragedy.

    If you're a person living almost anywhere in the Arab world, you aren't safe from our commander in chief.


    Who knows where the next cruise missile will land. Who would've guessed Libya or Yemen?

    I remember the left screaming about how morally reprehensible the previous administration was for his actions now suddenly they've seemingly lost their collective voices. Damn funny that...
