Demonize The Swarthy Beasts That You Have To Feel Deserve To Be Bombed

This smacks of agitprop sensationalism, a la the Kuwaiti Incubator Babies.
The death cult raining destruction and 'depleted' uranium on the people of Libya have to demonize the recipients of their murderous largess. Sending some some deranged or mind controlled woman into a gaggle of international reporters to stage a screaming melee would be child's play for the controllers and would serve up the needed propaganda that the corrupt MSM would then run with.
Of course if this woman was abused then I would hope her assailants would be brought to justice, but this incident, like so many others, makes my bullshit antenna quiver.
This is from the NYT, please notice the obvious bias that I highlighted.

Libyan Woman Struggles to Tell Media of Her Rape



"TRIPOLI — A Libyan woman burst into the hotel housing the foreign press in Tripoli Saturday morning and fought off security forces as she told journalists that she had been raped and beaten by members of the Qaddafi militia. After nearly an hour, she was dragged away from the hotel screaming.

“They say that we are all Libyans and we are one people,” said the woman, who gave her name as Eman al-Obeidy. “But look at what the Qaddafi men did to me.” She displayed a broad bruise on her face, a large scar on her upper thigh, several narrow and deep scratch marks lower on her leg, and marks that seemed to came from binding around her hands and feet.

She said she had been raped by 15 men. “I was tied up and they defecated and urinated on me,” she said. “They violated my honor.”

She pleaded for friends she said were still in custody. “They are still there, they are still there,” she said. “As soon as I leave here they are going to take me to jail.”

For the members of the foreign press here as guests of the government of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi — and largely confined to the Rixos Hotel except for official outings — her intrusion was a reminder of the brutality of the Libyan government and the presence of its security forces even among the surrounding hotel staff. People in hotel uniform who just hours before had been serving coffee and clearing plates grabbed table knives and rushed to physically constrain both the woman and the journalists.

Ms. Obeidy said she was a native of the rebel stronghold of Benghazi who had been stopped by Qaddafi militia on the outskirts of the city. After being held for about two days, she said, she had managed to escape. Wearing a black robe, a veil and slippers, she ran into the Rixos Hotel here asking specifically to speak to the news service Reuters and the New York Times. “There is no media coverage outside,” she yelled at one point.

“They swore at me and they filmed me. I was alone. There was whiskey. I was tied up,” she told Michael Georgy of Reuters, the only journalist who was able to speak with her at length.“I am not scared of anything. I will be locked up immediately after this.” She added, "Look at my face. Look at my back.” Her other comments were captured by television cameras.

A wild scuffle ensued as journalists tried to interview, photograph and protect her. Several journalists were punched, kicked and knocked on the floor. A television camera belonging to CNN was destroyed in the struggle, and security forces seized a device that a Financial Times reported had used to record her testimony. A plainclothes security officer pulled out a revolver.

. Two members of the hotel staff grabbed table knives to threaten both Ms. Obeidy and the journalists. “Turn them around, turn them around,” a waiter shouted, attempting to block the foreign news media from having access to Ms. Obeidy. A woman on the staff shouted, “Why are you doing this? You are a traitor!” and briefly put a coat over Ms. Obeidy’s head.

There was a prolonged standoff behind the hotel as the security officials apparently restrained themselves because of the presence of so many journalists, but she was ultimately forced into a white car and taken away.

"Leave me alone," she shouted from the garden as one man tried to cover her mouth with his hand.

"They are taking me to jail," she yelled, trying to resist the security guards, according to Reuters. "They are taking me to jail."

Questioned about her treatment, Khalid Kaim, the deputy foreign minister, promised that she would be treated in accordance with the law. Musa Ibrahim, a government spokesman, said that she appeared to be drunk and mentally ill. “Her safety of course is guaranteed,” he said, adding that the authorities were investigating the case, including the possibility that her reports of abuse were “fantasies.”

Charles Glover of the Financial Times, who had put himself in the way of the security forces trying to apprehend her, was escorted out of the country shortly afterward. He said that that night before he had been told to leave because of what Libyan government officials said were inaccuracies in his reports."
