In the CIA kick-started war on Libya, The New York Times report Monday by John F. Burns, calling Libyan civilian casualties "propaganda," does not square with a series of WBAIX in-hospital interviews by Joshalyn Lawrence that show civilian victim survivors of US/NATO intensifying bomb raids, both witnessed by a human rights fact-finding mission including Cynthia McKinney and former MPs who report it is NATO spin that mainstream media is reporting.
"Sightings of civilian casualties have been rare," reported Burns yesterday.
"Visits to bombing sites, hospitals and funerals have produced a succession of blunders, including patients identified as bombing victims who turned out not to be, empty coffins at funerals and burials where some of those interred turned out not to be airstrike victims at all."
The Lawrence videos, on WBAIX channel, of hospitalized civilians is evidence that, rather than injuries and killings by bombs being "rare" or reporting "blunders," they are realities.
Graphic images of the wounded are documented in the WBAIX videos created by Joshalyn Lawrence.
In the videos, one after another wounded innocent civilian described atrocities to Cynthia McKinney, in a fact-finding mission with a team including a delegation of former MP's and professors from France all now in Tripoli.
The live-stream Lawrence videos on DeBar's channel document the NATO attacks and the injured, showing their wounds, and describing friends and co-workers killed.
McKinney's fact-finder team is seen entering one hospital room after another, each with the injured and the doctor explaining how the injury occurred and showing the injuries.
Houses are "completely destroyed" and meanwhile, according to McKinney, NATO has its own psychological operation in progress.
In a statement today by McKinney, she refutes NATO claims about making "significant progress" in "protecting Libyan civilians" and "targeting military intelligence headquarters in downtown Tripoli."
Today's fact finder team, of which McKinney is a delegate, planned a program to visit camps of internally displaced persons in the area but this cannot occur because of US/NATO attacks.
"[W]e are not able to complete our program while Tripoli is under attack. I will do my best to visit some of the areas bombed today when/if this attack lets up."
Like The New York Times, The Washington Post headlined "Libya government fails to prove claims of NATO casualties" and the Los Angeles Times headline was, "Libya officials put a spin on a conflict."
"These bombs and missiles are not falling in empty spaces: people are all over Tripoli going about their lives just as in any other major metropolitan city of about two million people," stated McKinney.
"I don't understand why they want to kill us," said one young woman seen standing with others outside the Tripoli hospital room, explaining that the old are also being injured and killed.
"Why?" is the question repeatedly asked by the injured who are able to speak.
Political analyst Webster Tarpley answered that question Monday on Press TV, stating that the "goal of all this all along has been to smash Libya into various parts to drive Gaddafi out of power and to seize control of the oil to re-impose the yoke of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in still more severe form than we ever had it."
