Saif al-Islam tells the truth at last

As his brother Khamis Gaddafi leads his Khamis Brigade in a massacre against the city of Zawiya, I am reminded of Saif al-Islam‘s comments to western journalists.

“We have been holding back,” Saif has said several times in interviews with journalists.

After the the last hours of  brutal attacks which include tank firing on residential areas in Zawiya, snipers firing from rooftops on Martyr Square, and injured being executed, I know that Saif, at last, tells the truth about one thing at least.

Unfortunately for the unarmed civilians of Zawiya, we see the face of evil revealing itself in ways sentient and feeling human beings cannot imagine. I could compare it to Hitler, except these are not “others.”   These are Libyans massacring Libyans.
