U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has revealed that intelligence reports suggest Libyan loyalist forces have placed bodies of people they have killed at the sites of coalition air strikes so they can blame the West for the deaths.
Mr Gates told the CBS Face The Nation programme: 'We do have a lot of intelligence reporting about Gaddafi taking the bodies of the people he's killed and putting them at the sites where we've attacked.'
A U.S.-led coalition began air strikes against Libya a week ago to establish a no-fly zone over the oil-exporting North African country and to try to prevent Gaddafi from using his air force to attack people rebelling against his rule.

  • I thought Obama said he " had to go"
    I thought Clinton said he " had to go"
    Seems he's not going anywhere.

  • That or this administration and the UN dont want people to know there have been more civilian casualties then there have been. I think its likely a combination of him moving bodies, human shields and civilian causalities.

  • AQ has been doing this for several years now. They've actually raided morgues if they can't make it look bad enough to sicken the press and Americans.

    If it wouldn't be so wrong in terms of the families/friends of the dead, I'd support forcing ANY military member or terrorist to eat any body they got caught toting around and setting up as props.

    Our soldiers were dragged through the coals because they made a few of the worst criminals and the worst of AQ/insurgents who spent their time setting up ieds pose nekkid wearing puppy collars ... or wearing panties (shoulda been fuzzy pink ones imo) on their heads. We've got a few more who just posed alongside some dead bodies on trial (and they won't/shouldn't get off lightly). But when the enemy disrespects the dead and uses them in such a manner, most of the civilian population not only falls for it, they blame our troops.

    Some people wonder about my attitude. Sigh.
