On October 9, New York Times writer Kareem Fahim headlined, "Fighters Enter City Once Home to Qaddafi," saying:
Anti-Gaddafi "fighters battled their way into the heart of this coastal city on Sunday, seizing a sumptuous conference center (and) nearby Ibn Sina hospital...."- Advertisement -
"By Sunday afternoon, anti-Qaddafi fighters were speaking confidently about their chances of finally taking (Sirte), as a coordinated ring of troops closed in on loyalists in their remaining pockets."
On October 10, Al Jazeera reported a "final push into Sirte," saying "Anti-Gaddafi forces say they've captured more than half of (the city), one of (Gaddafi's) last remaining strongholds."
Correspondent Tony Birtley's one-sided report falsified facts on the ground, claiming "70%" of Sirte was captured. His sole truthful comment was "(t)his is not finished yet."
Indeed not, as Gaddafi loyalists are prevailing, contrary to falsified Al Jazeera and Western media reports. They include Al Jazeera saying on October 11 that TNC fighters "punched through (Sirte's) last line of defence," encountering "light resistance and suffer(ing) no casualties...."
On October 10, Christof Lehmann's NSNBC said Sirte loyalists successfully resisted NATO terror bombing and rebel attacks for months.
"Even Al Jazeera's Hollywood Narrative of the attack on Sirte (was discredited) when the 'embedded grand standing' at a freshly captured university campus (was short-lived by a) message (saying) 'we have to withdraw because there is a massive counterattack coming.' "
Gaddafi loyalists continue to show redoubtable staying power against all NATO's might and paramilitary cutthroat army onslaughts. They're in it for the money, other assorted reasons, and all they can loot. They've taken full advantage despite getting pummeled across the country.
