The legendary conspiracy theorist writer is bringing in some pretty level-headed news from former US congresswoman on her own fact-finding mission in West Libya. Actually, it's a larger team effort than I realized. As noted at the end of the dispatch:
The DIGNITY Delegation of independent journalists from across the United States is on a truth-telling, fact-finding mission to Libya. Headed by former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, the delegation will be joined by former Sen. Mike Gravel and former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark. For more information, contact Don DeBar at dondebar@optonline.net.

Issues that are covered:
- the deliberate targeting of Muammar Gaddafi (including some new details of the April 30 strike that killed his son Saif and three of his infant grandchildren)
- the lack of rebel strongholds in the west of the country often described in outside media, and the abundance of pro-Gaddafi sentiment in these areas.
- attacks on migrant refugee camps in neighboring Tunisia.

Excellent work.
