'Claims RAF struck rebel oil pipeline are absolutely false,' says British leader --Nato refuses to apologise for 'friendly fire' air strike that killed 13 rebels --09 Apr 2011 Nato yesterday refused to apologise for an air strike that left 13 rebels dead and many more wounded...

In fact, it was Libyan government forces that attacked the oil facility with the aim of cutting supplies to rebel stronghold Tobruk, he said. 'I can assure you that this is absolutely false,' said the Rear Admiral. [I -- and the whole world, except for the delusional sociopaths aka US Congress/Obama -- call *bullsh*t.*]

[Yeah, no party in history - led by the biggest sell-out/prevaricator on God's green earth - has ever *bent over* as deeply as the Democrats. This is just the opening salvo by the Teabaggers - eliminating Medicare is next. No worries: Obama will cave on everything else his Koch brother/GOP overlords demand after all the brouhaha dies down. --LRP]
