Snub And Murder
Colonel Gaddafi's glamorous lawyer daughter and Goodwill Ambassador battling AIDS and violence against women plus losing her infant daughter killed in US led bombing, spoke to the press first time since U.S. atrocities on Libyans escalated, pointing a finger at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama, blaming the West for interfering in Libya when it was soon to unveil its constitution in its democratic reform, and threatening the United States for its continued illegal war on her oil-rich country.
According to the Daily Mail, one of Gaddafi's eight children, Aisha Gaddafi, 36, demonstrated defiance against Hillary Clinton, the woman who advised in March that, no matter what Congress said or how it voted, she was defending the Obama regime's continued assaults on the people of Libya.
Laughingly, Ms. Gaddafi, who specializes in violence against women issues, asked Hillary Clinton, "Why didn’t you leave the White House when you found out about the cheating of your husband?"
Ms. Gaddafi, described as the "Claudia Schiffer of North Africa" by Arabic press, "could have easily graced the pages of Vogue magazine, but she opted for a role to further her father's cause," International Business Times has reported.
Ms. Gaddafi, slated as Libya's next beloved leader and hailed as a major present leader in the people's struggle as seen in Tripoli on April 14.
She has been the Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations Development Program (UNDP) since 2009. She has worked as an emissary in Africa's battle against HIV, and also violence against women.
The Independent reported that the UN relieved her from her duties after the war on Libya began, calling it a "bloody repression of a revolt against her father in Libya."
Ms. Gadaffi said that rebels fighting for independence from her father's regime were 'terrorists' according to the Daily Mail.
Alex Newman, a journalist for The New American, wrote in April that many of the rebels fighting the Libyan dictatorship are affiliated with known terrorist organizations including al-Qaeda. Of course, some of them are also apparently part of the establishment, too, as evidenced by the rebel council’s seemingly odd decision to set up a new central bank amidst the chaos.
Ms Gaddafi warned America, "The opposition in Iraq told the West that when you come to Iraq, they will greet you with roses. Almost ten years later, they are receiving the Americans with bullets." ... Believe me, the situation in Libya will be much worse" she added.
Ms. Gaddafi sued NATO for bombing the building in Gaddafi's compound that allegedly killed her brother, Saif al-Arab Muammar al-Gaddafi, and her own infant daughter, plus two other grandchildren of her father.
On August 22, "Libyan rebels" stormed Ms. Gaddafi's home, and for months after, it was unclear what had became of her.
Hillary Clinton's unwavering support of lawlessness and human rights abuses
United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "told a classified congressional hearing that the Obama regime would ignore Congress if it tried to rein in the unconstitutional war in Libya, but that the administration would send press releases to lawmakers, according to news reports," reported Alex Newman in the New American on April 1, 2011.
"When Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) asked Clinton during the briefing what the regime’s response would be to Congress exercising its constitutional authority over war, the Secretary said Obama would proceed with the war anyway, according to a senior Republican lawmaker in attendance cited by Talking Points Memo.

The daughter of Muammar Gaddafi has launched a lawsuit for murder following the death in April of four members of her family during a Nato air strike.
Legal papers were submitted to the prosecutor's office in Brussels on Tuesday by the French lawyer for Aisha Gaddafi.
During the bombing raid on 30 April the Libyan leader's son Saif el-Arab, 29, as well as three of his grandchildren were killed. Ms Gaddafi's four-month-old daughter Mastoura was one of those who died.
She argues the coalition forces that carried out the attack are guilty of "war crimes", stating the air strike did not target a command and control post held by troops loyal to her father, but was a private residence in Tripoli where members of his family were living.
She has demanded investigators "discover, identify and punish those responsible for the murders and their accomplices".
The papers were lodged by Luc Brossollet. His office confirmed that he had travelled to the Belgian capital to begin legal proceedings.
"The target was a civil building inhabited by civilians and was neither a command post nor a military control [centre] of the Libyan regime," the legal papers state
