The Daily Mail reports:

The Libyan woman who was arrested after telling foreign journalists she had been gang-raped by Gaddafi’s troops has been charged, a government spokesman said today.

In a chaotic press conference, the official said Iman Al-Obeidi was being questioned by police – despite a promise that she had been returned to her family.

‘The accuser has now become the accused,’ he added, accusing her of a ‘grave offence’.

The spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, said the men accused by Iman al-Obeidi are now suing her. A son of a high ranking Libyan official was among those she claimed had raped her, he said.

‘The boys she accused are bringing a case against her because it’s a very grave offence to accuse someone of a sexual crime,’ he told reporters in the Libyan capital.

Miss Al-Obeidi was taken into custody after bursting into the Rixos Hotel in Tripoli in a dishevelled and desperate state.

    This story pisses me off in many ways; in a perfect world I would be there kicking the shit out of the men that apparently rapped this poor woman. The reason I know with almost 100% certainty that she was rapped by these men is because no woman in that country would make a claim like that if they were not serious. First off, if she does not bring 4 witnesses to testify to this she will be charged for her accusations, which they are doing know. 2nd she will be stoned to death if she does not present the 4 witnesses and prove her charges. It’s too bad with what’s going on in that country, it will probably be next to impossible to bring any witnesses forward in fear of their own lives. Fuck Gaddafi and all his bitch ass thug puppets. I pray that someone will send in help to save her, she does not deserve this. Gaddafi’s regime deserves to be stoned to death including Gaddafi. Sheri Law can suck it and so can the prophet that abused women and preaches that its ok to do the same.

      Does that mean you still know with near 100% certainty that Iraqi soldiers left Kuwaiti babies on the floor to die in hospitals so they could steal the incubators? Certainly no nurse there would lie about such a thing either; except when they do. http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/incubatorlie.html

    …also, the penalty for slander in Libya is gang rape.

    Here’s the vid. I was just shocked by the shamelessness of these Gaddafi thugs in front of the press.
    Can’t wait to see this autocracy to end, even though I’m sure this involvement of Western powers isn’t a bona fide humanitarian intervention at all.

    Am I the only one who thinks this sounds like a PR stunt to sell people on the Libyan intervention? It reminds me of the “incubator” lie to sell the first Gulf War. http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/incubatorlie.html

    The lady might have been raped or might not have been raped? BHO, and the West point to this lady, and say see look at that poor lady that was raped by Gaddafi’s men. We(America&West) must send out military in there to Lybia to help the people The ONLY way Gaddafi is going relinquish control-is if he is forced out by foreign troops. No bombing campaign Except for Japan has ever removed a leader or ended a war. It is very Funny to see so many people that are happy and willing to start another war, when to past 8 years they were Anti-War. I understand now. WE HAVE TO KILL, KILL, KILL FOR PEACE. WE HAVE TO KILL, KILL, KILL FOR PEACE WE HAVE TO KILL, KILL, KILL FOR PEACE. WE HAVE TO KILL, KILL, KILL FOR PEACE. Go ahead BHO send in the U.S. troops. I’m sure they are willing to die for Lybia. Please BHO give the people what they want. Send in the Troops.
