Antiwar Radio: Tom Porteous

Tom Porteous, deputy program director at Human Rights Watch, discusses the outgoing Gadhafi regime’s many human rights violations in Libya; why the Benghazi massacre threat (used to justify the no-fly zone and “civilian protection” NATO campaign) was for real; why Libya’s NTC needs to quickly get a functional government in place before the country descends into factional violence; and why investigations are needed for crimes committed by rebel groups, as well as NATO’s exceeded mandate.
