Bani Walid Attacks, Poison Gas Allegations

October 14, 2012

I've let the blog lapse, haven't been following comments, etc. Sorry. But Leonore Massanet has at her site some disconcerting reports in the last few days (Spanish language). Several posts there address reported use of poison gas by rebel forces against the people of Bani Walid in their recent assaults on the area. It's a little Déjà Vu, or at least not  the first time reported (but mainly ignored) poison gassing of recalcitrant Libyans who resist their new master-puppets. Last year, if leveled against the sovereign Libyan government, it'd be taken as fact. Now, it's not even on page 10.

  5. We do not know who the suspects are”, said Mohammed Barguti, the head of Bani Walid’s de facto ruling council.

    “Law no.7 is wrong and puts us in an impossible position. Before this law was passed, nobody came here to investigate what was really going on. All these decisions have been taken by people far away and that is unacceptable”.

    Barguti said that he would have no objections to police coming from outside Bani Walid to investigate the incident, but said that no such offer had been made.

    “Law no.7 is ludicrious. It is the judiciary, not the Congress, who should be responsible for such matters. There are perhaps 200 prisoners from Bani Walid being held in Misrata, but nobody is threatening to go to war over them”.

    “Bani Walid does not want to fight with anybody”, said Ahmed Almaried, a local businessman. “It just wants to be left in peace”.

    The fighters who rose up in Bani Walid on Monday belong to Brigade 93, a militia created by Qaddafi loyalists who reassembled after the fall of the regime in August, said al-Khazmi and the local council chief.

    Hundreds of well-equipped and highly trained remnants of Qaddafi's forces raised the green flag over buildings in the western city late Monday after hours of clashes that drove out the local "revolutionary brigade," said Mubarak al-Fatamni, the head of Bani Walid local council.

    Revolutionary brigades are militias that are nominally loyal to the National Transitional Council, the national government.

    Its two passengers were reportedly taken by the militia, along with their car and the supplies. Another man travelling to Bani Walid at about 1pm on 12 October told Amnesty International that he was told to turn back at the same checkpoint, without being provided with an explanation.

  17. Bani Walid has become the Libyan Tora Bora. Remember the search for Bin Ladin in the mountains of Afghanistan?.
    In the Libyan case, it's the search for Gaddafi aides, or his son Khamis. So whenever distraction is needed, the 'spectre' of aides or Khamis is raised again.
    The militias of Misrata used nerve gas against Libyan soldiers in Misrata during the 'civilian' uprising in 2011.

      19 october 2011 : A Libyan reporter for nsnbc could inform that Bani Walid has been under massive attack from both land and air. TNC troops reportedly succeeded at securing an industrial district of Bani Walid, paying the price of massive casualties, and only after NATO planes used FAE bombs, that disperse a cloud of microscopic fuel particles in the air before exploding.

      http://nsnbc.wordpress.com/2011/10/19/clinton-cluster-bombs-and-claimes-of-victory/

      Also other sources report of NATO´s use of inhumane and illegal weapons against Bani Walid. Algeria ISP reported of the use of White Phosphor against Bani Walid.White Phosphor and FAE bombs are hardly weapons one would expect to be used by forces who just have to fight down a few remaining pockets of resistance.

    During the run-up to the elections several loyalist cells were identified
    and eliminated in the greater Tripoli area.

    In many of the former main loyalist areas like Bani Walid, Tarhouna and Mizdah “selfdefense”
    militias were established in order to protect the population from other militias.

    But there is no indication that the former loyalists will try to trigger a major conflict.

    As the surviving sons of Qhadafi
    have a lack of leadership skills there is also no real leading figure for them.

    Moreover as the remaining more competent aids of Qhadafi are (currently) neutralized there is also nobody to lead from behind.

    We are sure that in the next 48 hours more than 1000 people will be died as the militias has increased the attack randomly and people inside the city have made decision that they will not going to leave the city and will defend their city and their people.

  41. the Libya Herald’s George Grant was in Sufageen Valley to the east of Bani Walid this morning

    Saturday, October 20, 2012 ,Tripoli, :

    The Qaddafi regime’s media spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, has been reported as captured in Bani Walid and is now being held at Mitiga airbase in Tripoli after a brief check-up in hospital in Misrata. He was flown to Tripoli from Misrata this afternoon.

    Around 30 other Qaddafi figures are also said to have been caught in the past 24 hours in and around the town, both as a result of fighting there and when the national army entered it early today.

    “We know that Moussa Ibrahim was in Bani Walid,” said one Western ambassador in Tripoli today. “We also know that as many as 30 Qaddafi supporters have been captured in the town”, he added but did not know their identities.

  44. Leader says Libya not "fully liberated" year after Gaddafi death

    http://af.reuters.com/article/topNews/idAFJOE89J01I20121020 …

    Libya was declared "liberated" a few days after his death on October 20, 2011, and while its new rulers have led the nation to elections, they have struggled to impose their authority on a country awash with weapons.

    "This lack of care has led to the spread of chaos that has lured the old regime to infiltrate the country's institutions inside and to conspire with the regime loyalists on the outside,"
    Magarief said.

    "And the chaos has lured others to kidnappings, stealing, and to create non-legitimate prisons.

    What has happened in Bani Walid in the last few days falls under this ... it has become a safe haven for a large number of those who are outside of the law."

    Khamis Gaddafi's body was found after a day of fighting between a pro-Gaddafi garrison and militias allied to the Libyan government.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/oct/20/khamis-gaddafi-killed-bani-walid-muammar

    Khamis Gaddafi, youngest son of the former Libyan dictator, has allegedly been killed during fighting in the town of Bani Walid, a year to the day that rebel forces killed his father, Muammar.

    A short statement from the Libyan national congress spokesman, Omar Hamdan, said the 28-year-old was killed "in battle" but gave no further details.

    His body was apparently found after a day of heavy fighting between the town's pro-Gaddafi garrison and militias allied to the Libyan government. Government forces reported 13 dead and 121 wounded, amid a fourth day of bitter clashes for control of the town.

    3. at least one protester has been shot, by one of Megarief's body guards, as the protest took place outside the so-called National Congress hall.

      the entire country is coming out in support of the besieged, and now invaded and brutalized town, with the exception of Misrata.

      Green flags are being unfurled by the many supporters of Muammar Qadhafi and the Jamahiriya, but in Tripoli today the protesters compared Megarief to Qadhafi and said that the former has much blood on his hands, and is a CIA stooge. Megarief has been CIA agent since around 1980.

      The many Libyans who protested at the "National Congress" of the CIA butcher Megarief "President" of Libya in Tripoli were shouting slogans including "stop the killing in Bani Walid" and "We are all Libyans, get out Megarief!" before being shot at and dispersed by tear gas.

  54. Good to see the others appear. Sorry I haven't, I followed, but not closely.

    Aside from the all-too likely truth of a hideous and genocidal ignored assault on a major Libyan city, this has all gotten really fascinating. What the hell is going on there? What are the "official" Libyan sources saying? Atthe very least some "fire fight" that netted Khamis, again, more than a year after his last death (which as we know I never quite bought). AND, get this, on about or exactly the anniversary of his dad's similar execution, so not likely to be un-planned. Not unlike the now spontaneous, non-Al-Qaeda, non-planned consulate attack right on the anniversary of 9/11. Suuuure...

  60. There is indiscriminate shelling of civilian areas. The hospital has been hit by rocket fire. Militia open fire on families fleeing for safety.

    Perhaps the West should intervene?
    The problem is, the shelling is in Bani Walid, Bani Walid is in Libya, and the West has been there and done that.

    Black Libyans, and black Africans still stranded in the country, have borne the brunt of this due to their lack of arms and support networks

    http://news.sky.com/story/1001431/black-libyans-bear-brunt-of-post-gaddafi-chaos

    In this instance, it is Amnesty International’s refusal to acknowledge the external source of Libya’s current problems (that is, the NATO bombing) which reveals its own self-consciousness, and possibly even guilt, over its encouragement of a military solution to solve human rights problems – a very dangerous, and at best unreliable, solution indeed. 

    We are now witnessing the fruits of this solution in Libya, and it is not a pretty one.

    The SRSG added that in light of the publicly stated positions, the United Nations remains fully convinced that a comprehensive peaceful outcome is achievable.

    This includes the right of the State to fully assert its national authority over the city of Bani Walid through the deployment of units from the national army and police;
    the immediate and unconditional release of all detainees who continue to be held inside Bani Walid;
    the handover to the judicial authorities of all those wanted on suspicion of having committed crimes, along with guarantees for their security and fair trial;
    the resumption of all basic services to the city; and the holding of local elections in due course.

    SRSG Mitri has reaffirmed the United Nations’ readiness and commitment to work closely with all concerned to achieve a peaceful outcome.

    The United Nations Support Mission in Libya will continue to encourage all concerned to work towards a mediated settlement to the current crisis.

    1. What is happening in Bani Walid is beyond the imagination. It is a tragedy. The so-called Libyan army, which are in reality a bunch of thugs, are behaving like locusts. They are attacking everything in their way.

      This Misrata army are stationed at the entrances of Beni Walid and using all sorts of weapons, tanks, rockets and gases against the people.

      They keep shooting the city for 10 hours at random and then have a few troops on the ground and some others in small vans trying to infiltrate, but the men of Beni Walid who are hiding in houses open fire and push them back.

      Till now these thugs could not get inside the town owing to the fierce resistance by the people of Bani Walid. Before, we had Gaddafi's army. Now we have armed militias killing women and children. They have been surrounding the city for 20 days but within the last five days they got crazy and have made our lives here a real hell.

      There is no safe place to hide in Bani Walid. I was in opposition to Gaddafi and was imprisoned in Abu Salim prison for a long time, but I regret every moment I opposed Gaddafi after what I have seen here.

      This is an act of revenge and racism. People have decided to defend their homes and honour with the arms they have and I can assure you if the situation continues like that, Libya will slip to a civil war eventually.

      They are destroying an entire city but people will not keep silent, there are more than 53 tribes in Bani Walid and they have decided to die for their land.

    I remember a telephone conversation I had with a Bani Walid resident about the day he said media and Al Jazeera had helped topple Colonel Muammar Gaddafi by reporting on his use of Grad rockets against his own people.

    "Well now, where is the media and why no one is reporting the president of the general national congress, Mohamed el-Magariaf, who has ordered the use of rockets and force against the residents of Bani Walid."

    As we pull back 50 kilometres, we see a commander who says has had enough of his bosses. He says that they are outgunned and that the 'enemy' is more like an organised army.

    I ask him who the 'enemy' is?He answers, "Gaddafi soldiers."

    6. About message of the occupation regime’s media there they reported about arrest in Bani Walid members of the 32th Brigade and other units of the Jamahiriya. In fact, out of prison Misrata were taken prisoners, they were dressed in the form of the Libyan army, in one of the suburbs of Bani Walid or the outskirts of the city they are given a green flags, portraits of Gaddafi and the weapons unloaded. Their "capture" were shot on video (for mobile phones) for distribution to the media.

    8. Dardaneel is Bani Walid’s TV station, named after the nickname it earned from the Italians – the Dardanelles of Libya – for its stiff anti-colonial resistance in 1923. Its main broadcasts after Friday, when the town began to be shelled heavily from three sides, have been of funerals, of tours of the hospital morgue, with close-ups of dead children and adults with gruesome wounds and of mosques and homes hit by what is claimed to be indiscriminate shelling.

      Such broadcasts usually have a running commentary. The father of a small boy testifies besides the mangled corpse how, last Sunday, his son was simply sitting outside the house. Others walk the viewer through the mosque where a group of men were saying their Friday prayers, pointing at the blood-stained carpet or else through a half-wrecked home which, pointedly, is full of stickers of the flag of the (anti-Gaddafi) February 17 revolution. Fighters, walking through positions previously held by fighters from Misurata, point at two abandoned gas masks.

      At the mass funerals of dead fighters, the prayer leader, with breaking voice, identifies the dead men with the honour of the Warfalla, Bani Walid’s tribe. Behind him, rough, tough middle-aged men wipe their eyes with their woollen togas. As the coffins are carried away, the youth begin to cry with one voice: “The blood of the martyrs will not be wiped away! With my blood, with my soul, I will redeem you, Warfalla!”

      Another cry is that Bani Walid will not be another Tawargha – that is, the town that was devastated by Misurata’s fighters after men from Tawargha had participated in the siege against Misurata last year.

      Libyan militia's warning shots cause panic among refugees attempting to return home while bloody resistance continues
      http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/oct/25/gaddafii-loyalists-last-stand-bani-walid

      Also clear is that it is the army, not its leaders, who are calling the shots. Last Friday, chief-of-staff Youssef Mangoush announced a 48-hour ceasefire to allow refugees to leave, but the following day the army launched its heaviest offensive of the battle, which has already cost an estimated 20 dead and 200 wounded.

      On Wednesday Mangoush announced the military operation was over and the town had been handed back to civil control. The reality on Thursday was that resistance has not yet been crushed.

      The aim of the Bani Walid operation was to eliminate the last resistance to a government itself in chaos, with parliament unable to agree a cabinet three months after being elected.

      Instead, the offensive has inflamed Bani Walid, and seen anti-government protests and shooting in another former Gaddafi stronghold, Sirte.

      The longed-for consensus July's elections were supposed to deliver remains a distant prospect.

    12. Alwarfally also claimed that at least hundreds of people were killed during the 20-day siege.

      “The number is really big,” he said. “One the first day that [the militia] came, there were about 70 bodies from the fighting. Yesterday night there was 600.”

      “The number of people in the hospitals is over 1000,” he added.

      An eyewitness in Bani Walid – who called herself Fatima – had a very different story to tell. She said the situation in the town is anything but stable.

      “These are not governmental forces. These are militias and armed gangsters surrounding Bani Walid without any legitimacy. The media is prohibited from reporting on what’s happening in the city. The situation is horrible. Crimes are committed.

      Communications were deliberately cut in order for these gangsters to prevent any person from communicating what is really happening. They are bulldozing houses. They’re setting houses on fire, stealing everything they can find. They’ve committed massacres, killing as many people as they could,” she told RT.

      Whether government forces or militias are behind the violence, video footage from the town paints a very graphic picture.

    2. BW is very disturbing. News is sporadic and one doesn't know whose 'psyops' is working. Most reports say BW now taken but this brings hope, if correct. Some interesting backlinks.

      Even then it's disturbing (26/10) Not only Qatar SF but Jordanian ones reportedly involved, unsure if true:

      "Today witness reported the Turkish troops in chemical protection suits, which are on the outskirts of Bani Walid, collect bodies of civilians and defenders were killed by bombs and white phosphorous chemical weapons and possibly depleted uranium, and then transported them to the dead city for Tavarga In order to burn them and bury the remains in a mass grave. They destroy the evidence that the invaders used these prohibited weapons, especially white phosphorous."

      It's Russian and one doesn't know if true, yet hopes so. More:

      "City Bani Walid has not been taken, the collisions occur mainly in the eastern part of the city between the defenders of Bani Walid Brigade and "May 28", that is, rats that have to live in an area called Sdada, Bani Walid.
      Many in Libya and abroad influenced the spread of misinformation on the part of the occupation. town of Bani Walid is still struggling."

      There's also tweets indicating tribes are uniting against the BW decimation, but even though Khamis data a furfy the fact some Khamis Brigade are left is hopeful.

    And when the meeting broke up, the draft statement (which Inner City Press put online last night) had not been agreed to. UK Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant said that Libyan authorities were being reminded of international humanitarian law.

    Inner City Press asked Lyall Grant, who is doing this reminding?
    He said his government and he believed the US as well.

    Another Security Council source told Inner City Press that US would not accept the Council press statement. "Nothing until after the election," the source said. Another said this first year anniversary was not the time for a "discordant note." And so it goes at the UN.

      The city is still fighting, its defenders are gradually sweeping rebels.

      After the NATO (most likely USA) special forces attack on the night of October 25 and 26 the defenders had to pull back further into the city, into Dahra and Souk districts, which make up to 36% of the overall territory of Bani Walid.

      Other territories were ravaged by May 28 Brigade bandits which is comprised of local criminals and Libya's Shield Brigade band where the majority are mercenaries from Egypt, Tunis, Qatar and the Saudi Arabia and other countries.

      Besides local al-Quaeda militants joined in the ravaging.

      The bandits which rob and burn housed, kill civilians, had been since October 26 destroying any evidence of that night attack

      :
      The road to Al-Awiniyya was blocked on 13 June, pending the end of the offensive, and all Machachiya left the village.
      The only traffic allowed to pass was Zintan pick-up trucks armed with anti-aircraft guns and rocket launchers, and ambulances bringing back the wounded. The source of the conflict was unclear.

      The Zintan claimed that the Machachiya killed one of their men in an ambush, with help from officers who formerly served under Gathafi.

      Wounded members of the opposite camp, interviewed in the Gharian hospital, insisted however that they were the victims of a campaign to clear them off their land, like the operation in August 2011 when 40,000 people in Tawergha, suspected of supporting Gathafi’s men, were forced to leave and their houses systematically destroyed.

  89. 30 october 2012 The head of the Libyan armed forces, General Yousef Mangoush, has no control over Bani Walid and civilians are being prevented from returning home by vigilante “gunmen”, Defence Minister Osama Juwaili has said.

    Mangoush

    In a scathing broadside, almost certain to be his last as defence minister ahead of Prime Minister-elect Ali Zidan’s expected announcement of a new government later today, Juwaili said the hilltop town was near-deserted as a result of the fighting and that the small number of people who remain are living in terrible conditions.

    “The chief of staff has no control over the town and therefore armed men are able to prevent families from coming back”, the minister was quoted as saying by AFP, following a televised speech on Monday.

    “The town is completely empty except for a small number of people who are living in tragic conditions; there is no activity; the impact of shelling is visible everywhere”.

    He went on to describe soldiers controlling the checkpoint leading into the town as “gunmen”.

  91. 18 Oct 2012 , Libya Shield fighters put out a statement Tuesday saying they will not enter Bani Walid without orders from the military chief of staff Gen. Youssef Mangoush.

    http://i50.tinypic.com/npgkt3.jpg

    About that Libya Shield Brigade which 1) fought under the black flag of al Qaeda during the February 17 Revolution, and 2) escorted the eight US Marines who arrived from Tripoli to aid the Benghazi consulate under attack on the night of 9/11/12.

    The jihadist inclinations of bin Hamid and his Libya Shield forces are not unknown to the U.S. government.
    Indeed, a recent study prepared by the research division of the Library of Congress links the Libya Shield Brigade to al-Qaida and even cites speculation that bin Hamid may be the leader of the al-Qaida network in Libya.

    Wissam bin Ahmed (Commander, Libya Shield 1)

    An authoritative source confirms that Libya Shield commander "bin Hamid" and "bin Ahmed" are one and the same -- it bears repeating, is a supporter of rule by sharia.

    Muhammad al-Gharabi (Commander, Rafa' al-Sahti Brigade, Libya Shield 2)

    They claimed to exercise "control" over Libyan Armed Forces Chief of Staff Yusef Mangoush who "depends" on them to secure eastern Libya.

    In times of crisis, Mangoush has no other choice than to turn to their brigades for help, they said, as he did recently with unrest in Kufra.

    As part of this arrangement, Mangoush often provides the brigades direct stocks of weapons and ammunition, they said.

  92. [Faraj Al-Swehli] ordered his Tripoli-based militia, originally from Misrata, to join others who have surrounded parts of the town. [Bani Walid]

    [ 20 September 2011 ,It is worth mentioning that the Union of Misurata Libyan rebels issued a statement late Sunday in which he called the political opposition to the nomination of former Libyan Abdel Rahman Swehli for the post of President of the Libyan government.
    The statement that the Union, which represents some of the Brigades, the rebels in Misurata strongly supports this nomination.]

  93. elections to come :

    Awad Al Barasi for Prime Minister and they said that. if elected, Al Barasi would appoint Fawzi Bukatif, Commander of the February 17 Brigade, as Minister of Defense.

    Bukatif's appointment would open the MOD and other security ministries and offices to plum-appointments for his most favored brigade commanders -- giving February 17 and Libya Shield tacit control of the armed forces.

    BaniWalid, HumanitarianTragedy

    5 - The militias, which claim to be part of the National Army are accused of stealing , looting , burning some private houses of social leaders and demolishing others by bulldozers ,Almrdom, an agricultural part of BaniWalid , is a good example of that.Armed groups rejected the return of citizens because they will find their houses in ruins , destroyed , stolen or looted andthis is must be a programmer with the authorities who had preparedcampuses outside these areas for displaced families and pushing them to the non-return.


    6 - The authorities were watching people suffering displacement and staying in the open areas where no ways of life , without taking any action to enable them to return to their homes before being robbery, looted and vandalised.

    Khaled al-Sharif in his intervention yesterday on the Misurata TV channel said literally:

    "We have successfully liberated Bin Walid of the infidels and lechery and deployed the army of Allah. I had the honor and dignity to have been the leader of one of the forces on the fronts of Bin Walid, which is now an Islamic emirate. We, the National Guard are currently clearing Tripoli from the people of Werfalla [the tribe of Bani Walid area] in order to become a safer and more stable city.

    "Nowadays, and in cooperation with the honorable Sheikh Ghnewah al-Kikli we implement a plan to clean Tripoli especially the areas of Abu Saleem and al-Hadba of the last remnants of this city.

    I would say that some of the tribes that have deviated from the curricula of our revolution will be cleansed soon.

    We will crush anyone who thinks of disobeying the State whether he was sheltered behind stolen weapons or trenches and mounds with which he surrounds his city. We will not retreat from crushing him.

    "Those who think of antagonizing Misurata think of antagonizing Libya.

    The cliques that now and then come out on the channels and sites to stultify our war on Bin Walid and show it as illegitimate we say to them: your blood is wasted, and your tribes that protect you will soon be pounded from everywhere until they become under the obedience and loyalty (of the State) and we have religious opinion from the Mufti to do that.

    You shirk from your responsibilities towards the country by stultifying the Guardian's decision to wage the war on Bin Walid and try to assault the mujahid al-Mangoush.

    You are ignorant and stupid and do not know what awaits you.

    Death is coming to you and you will only be like Bin Walid now.

    You will go back to your profession known to all Libyans, collecting food from the underground, to carry it to your masters in Misurata and to all houses of Libyan rebels and honest people. That is your normal position…

    May peace and God's mercy and blessings be upon you."

    I O zedan yarmouk class

    A story of UN visitors with one of their fixers : Taha from misrata .


    The smoke from Taha’s massive cone joint flowed through the cabin of our silver Hummer. The A/C was on high and blew long fingers of smoke to the back seat. We were all mellow. Taha’s aviator sunglasses hid his tiny black eyes as he cranked the volume on the Arabic Reggae beat until it became painful. Then he floored it.

    “He has to drive fast here,” Hamid said in flat Arabic-accented Canadian English. “This is where the snipers were, and if we didn’t do this we were dead.”

    “What the fuck is your story?” I asked Hamid.“I’m from here but my family moved to Canada.” He had photos of himself from the war. He had faced Qaddafi’s army in a Montreal Canadians jersey, a baseball cap turned to the side. Taha had driven a front-end loader before the war.



    -Misrata The drive to their base, what they called the “Lions Den,” was not far once Taha had recovered from his PTSD episode. We pulled into western Misrata near the sea.

  117. -I was back in the US after two trips to Libya in three months when I pitched Dan Rather with the idea of doing a documentary on Muammar Qaddafi’s death. I used to be one of the UN’s war crimes investigators in Libya after the war.

    I primarily looked at NATO’s bombing. But we were short staffed, and so I was also given the lead on investigating Qaddafi’s death.

    The UN wanted to know if he was “EJE’d” or Extra-judicially Executed as they say in international legal circles. It was an odd request I thought. Who gives a shit if he was EJE’d I asked?

    -Working for the UN is funny. Everyone thinks we have some great karmic authority. It is as if people say, oh, it’s the UN, how can we help?

    -We flew to Libya via Rome in November, shortly after Qaddafi was killed. There were 12 investigators, a chief of security, and a close protection guy that had the guns.
    The chief of security was a massive ark-skinned Brazilian and the close protection guy was a dashingly handsome Tunisian who never stopped smiling.

    -My first site was in Gargour. It was Qaddafi’s command bunker during the war and NATO just missed killing him there when two bunker busters slammed into it on April 30, 2011.

    – Misrata :“I’m Hamid,” said the one with the hoodie in perfect English. “This is Taha. I hope you don’t mind but we need to find out who you are before we can just let you in.”

    -Bani Walid Taha’s cell phone rang :One of our men who had been kidnapped by Qaddafi men in Bani Walid has been released.

    He was tortured, and we are going to storm the parliament.” We all jumped and ran out. There was a roar and Taha sat before us in a massive silver Hummer.

    Bani Walid is a pro-Qaddafi town [says the UN representant]

    – In Bani Walid Welcome to Bani Walid. I represent the people and welcome the UN.” The Libyan said through the interpreter.

    UN representant :“Many thanks, we represent a delegation of eminent scholars here to investigate the crimes of the war.”

  118. -Tripoli The protest in Tripoli was a crazed affair, Misratan men climbed over the bamboo walls to the Rixos Hotel, where Parliament was held, trying to breach security.

  119. Taha: Qaddafi’s boys had magic.
    You might laugh but there was black magic.
    Man I saw it. We would shoot them and nothing happened. Nothing. They stood there and laughed at us.
    Then Ramadan came and everything changed.
    We were chaste Muslims. No Hash, no alcohol, no sex. And God was with us. We killed them all.

    I saw stuff. Man it will never leave me.
    But I try not to focus on it.”

    “So now what?” I asked him.
    “Now the government is full of Western ideologues, and we will remind them who won the war.”

    “Will you demobilize?”

    “Absolutely. But Misrata will be last.

    Bani Walid needs to be first.
    Then the other cities.
    We will follow but we won’t give up our arms until everyone else does.”

    UN representant :“Don’t you think that is kind of a zero-sum game? I mean, don’t you think the other cities say the same thing?”

    “Yeah, but they didn’t face what we faced.
    They didn’t fight like we fought.”
    His phone rang. He and Taha conversed.“Can you roll a joint?” Hamid asked us.

    Note: The names of several UN officials in the story have been changed to protect them.
