Libya Lies

What Qaddafi said:
Speaking on a call-in radio show, [Qaddafi] promised amnesty for those "who throw their weapons away" but "no mercy or compassion" for those who fight. - NYTimes - 18 March 2011

What Obama SAID Qaddafi said in trying to justify the US attack:
"At this point, the United States and the world faced a choice.  Qaddafi declared he would show “no mercy” to his own people.  He compared them to rats, and threatened to go door to door to inflict punishment.  In the past, we have seen him hang civilians in the streets, and kill over a thousand people in a single day.  Now we saw regime forces on the outskirts of the city.  We knew that if we wanted -- if we waited one more day, Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world". - POTUS March 28, 2011

"We lead from the front," Obama said. "We introduced the resolution in the United Nations that allowed us to protect civilians in Libya when (Muammar) Gadhafi was threatening to slaughter them. - USA Today - 11/10/27
