NATO in Libya – UN And ICC Risk Becoming Irrelevant to Africans By Yaw Asare Adu-Otu

9 November 2011 — Global ResearchAllAfrica – 2011-11-09

Repeating the falsehood that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) exercised its military capability in Libya to protect civilians against attack by the military of Gadahfi regime did not make the assertion truthful when reasonable people around the world examined all the facts.
