NATO air raid kills Libyan civilians in Brega
14 May 2011
A representative of the Benghazi-based National Transitional Council (NTC) met with officials at the White House Friday as the US and NATO moved to escalate their intervention in Libya.
On the same day as the White House meeting, Libyan state television reported that a NATO air raid on the eastern coastal city of Brega killed at least 16 civilians and wounded another 40. The air strike demolished a guest house where, according to a witness who spoke to Jamahiriya television, “a group of Muslim sheikhs (religious leaders) were holding a religious ceremony.”
The television report included footage showing nine bodies wrapped in blankets.
The day before, a NATO air strike hit the compound of Libya’s Col. Muammar Gaddafi. Libyan state news agencies reported that six people were killed in the attack and 10 wounded. The bombing came just hours after Gaddafi had appeared on Libyan television for the first time since an April 30 NATO raid struck a house where he was staying, killing his son and three of his young grandchildren. The latest attack indicates that the US and its allies are continuing a policy of “regime change” through assassination.
Mahmoud Jibril, who is referred to as both the “prime minister” and the “foreign minister” of the NTC, made the trip to Washington as part of a campaign by the so-called rebels to secure increased funding, support and arms from the major imperialist powers.
Jibril, a free market economist who was trained at the University of Pittsburgh, had since 2007 served on Libya’s National Economic Development Board, promoting privatization, economic “liberalization” and foreign investment. He was described in a 2009 classified US embassy cable released by WikiLeaks as “a serious interlocutor who ‘gets’ the US perspective.”
His trip to Washington came just one day after the designated head of the NTC, Mustafa Abdul Jalil–who until February served as justice minister in the Gaddafi government –met with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague in London, also to solicit money and weapons.

Libyan opposition leaders will seek additional support from France on Saturday, a day after the U.S. stopped short of granting the opposition’s Transitional National Council (TNC) full diplomatic recognition: here.
Jason Coppola, Truthout: “On March 28, President Obama, in his address to the nation concerning events in Libya, declared, ‘Wherever people long to be free, they will find a friend in the United States.’ Here at home, it’s been a different story. The violations of the treaties threaten the very way of life of the Lakota as uranium mining runoff poisons their land and water with radioactive waste and they continue their fight to live according to their ‘traditional value system in rejection of a colonized world view,’ says Sicangu Lakota linguist and lifelong activist Rosalie Little Thunder”: here.
