Libyan rebels fighting to oust Moammar Gadhafi have looted shops and clinics and torched the homes of suspected regime supporters in some of the towns they seized in the country’s western mountains, Human Rights Watch said Wednesday.
The findings come as the rebels have enlarged the area under their control in the west and inched closer to a key supply route to Tripoli…
…In one case cited by the report, the rights group witnessed five houses on fire in the village of Qawalish, which was seized by the rebels on July 6, and gunmen loading their truck with supplies looted from a shop.
A few days later, nine more houses had been set alight.
So, it only makes sense then that the Obama Administration granted the Libyan rebel leaders full diplomatic recognition as the governing authority of Libya today.
It’s an Obama world.
