Remember when Arizona Senator John McCain, a RINO’s RINO if ever there was one, said that the Libyan rebel forces fighting against Muammar Ghadafi are his heroes? The problem is that we still don’t know for sure who’s running that show. But, in the meantime, with thanks to Michael Savage for the link, CNN has posted a report that Human Rights Watch says Senator McCain’s heroes are pillaging, burning and inflicting beatings on the populace:
Zintan, Libya (CNN) — Libyan rebels have looted and burned homes and abused civilians, a human rights group said Wednesday. The New York-based Human Rights Watch said that, in “four towns captured by rebels in the Nafusa Mountains over the past month, rebel fighters and supporters have damaged property, burned some homes, looted from hospitals, homes, and shops, and beaten some individuals alleged to have supported government forces.
If you read on down the page, the equivocating begins and mitigation commences, but suffice it to say, you’ll get the picture.
Mahmoud Jibril, chairman of the executive board of the opposition Transitional National Council, said the complaints represent only a “few incidents” that “took place in the very early days of the revolution, and we’ve been investigating those cases. We are against any human rights violation whomever is the source of those violations.” Those responsible are “going to be brought to justice,” he vowed.
You betcha. I’m not going to hold my breath until that happens. Read the entire report. John McCain is a prime example of a very powerful Washington insider who is abjectly clueless about Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood’s involvement in the violence that has set the Middle East aflame in the past few months. The lack of understanding about what is really going on over there is nothing short of astonishing. Yet, the Obama administration and folks like John McCain have advocated for the uprisings without a hint of what will take the places of the Muslim strongmen who are being overthrown. The last President to make such a colossal mistake was Jimmy Carter, when he pulled the rug from under the Shah of Iran and helped to usher in the Islamic Republic under the yoke of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeni. Enter Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his race to build nuclear weapons, promising to annihilate Israel and the West. It’s enough to make one want to just give up on the expectation or hope that any logical thought, based on some rudimentary understanding of Muslim doctrine, will ever transpire within the halls of power in this country.
