Blog cache of Musa Ibrahim’s German wife

Musa Ibrahim aka Musa Mansour, the Libyan government liar spokesperson  is married to a German woman, Julia Ramelow, who seems to have bought into his misinformation. She has  a blog which she has now locked down  but not before Google managed to cache a copy of it.  The comments are, to say the least, interesting reading. I have copied it to Scribd so as to ensure it is still viewable.

P.S. If you want to be Musa’s Facebook friend you can find him here.

Saif al-Islam Al-Gaddafi redefines ‘shameless liar’

Via Russia Today.

Seemingly thinking invoking the magic name will result in Western support,  Saif al-Islam Al-Gaddafi, is now attributing the popular uprising against the Libyan regime to al-Qaeda . Thinking that the rest of the world would be that stupid is one thing but the  calm way he lies directly to the cameras is a chilling testament to the pure evil he and the rest of his family represent.
