AFP just published a very interesting account of secret NATO teams guarding Gaddafi’s weapons of mass destruction depots with bombs that were able to take out a car while leaving the occupants unhurt.
Before Tripoli fell, NATO guarded his known chemical weapons depots from the air, maintaining near constant surveillance from them and ready to drop bombs on any government troops that showed up to remove the weapons for use against Libyan rebels. When those depots fell into rebel hands, special teams of Western intelligence agents operating from the rebels’ headquarters at Benghazi moved to secure the sites.
Here’s where things get weird. Western operators protecting the weapons depots are apparently using these ‘stun bombs’ against anyone, rebels included, who approach the sites.
