Moammar Gadhafi Used Injured Toddler as NATO Victim

Foreign media was made to believe by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi media handlers that NATO airstrike killed almost 700 civilians and more than 4,000 wounded by NATO airstrikes including an infant.

Gadhafi's aides brought journalists to a farm on the outskirts of the city, where a man said his animals had been killed by a missile strike on Sunday. The said man also said that there's no people injured but other people in the area said they had heard children were hurt.

To validate this rumor, journalists were brought to a hospital in the center of the capital and taken to the bed of an unconscious infant girl hooked up to medical equipment who according to a man seating beside her was a victim of a missile strike.

However, a hospital staff member passed one of the foreign journalists a handwritten note on hospital stationery, which said in English: "This is a case of road traffic accident. This is the truth."

Another man in the hospital who presented himself as the neighbor of the injured girl - leaned over her and shouted "God, Moammar, Libya and that's all!," a common pro-Gadhafi slogan, and denounced NATO.

But during a media even later that night, that same man revealed that he was employed by the Gadhafi government's media operations team.
