1. 
7:21pm: Mustafa Gheriani, a spokesman for the rebel Transitional National Council, has told the BBC why it detained members of the armed British team when they arrived by helicopter on Friday night: If they wanted to do something confidential or keep it classified, they could have just sent a message and we would have welcomed them through the seaport, or Benina airport. We would have kept it quiet and listened to them, and discussed with them whatever they wanted. But the way they came, it was quite suspicious, and the council took the position that we really dont want to discuss anything with this particular team.

7:48pm: The major Libyan oil ports of Ras Lanuf and Brega are closed, shipping sources have told the Reuters news agency. The last oil tanker left Ras Lanuf on Monday, they added.

Obama is being driven towards Libya
The Washington war drums are beating for the president to strike at Gaddafi not least because he may yet survive the revolt

Simon Tisdall
guardian.co.uk, Monday 7 March 2011 17.50 GMT


Gaddafi 'momentum is building behind expanded, American-led involvement in the crisis'. Photograph: KeystoneUSA-ZUMA / Rex Features

Political pressure is growing on Barack Obama to administer a coup de grace to Colonel Gaddafi, if need be through direct US military intervention. In part it's because policymakers and commentators see a chance of a fresh, democratic start in Libya, and in part because they fear a vacuum that anti-western Islamists and al-Qaida may fill. But Washington's war drums are also beating faster out of concern that Gaddafi, a long-reviled bogeyman first targeted by Ronald Reagan, may yet survive the revolt.

John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential candidate, is leading the charge coincidentally providing a salutary insight into how America might act now had he and Sarah Palin not been defeated by Obama. McCain is urging the White House to declare its support for a Libyan provisional government, even though none presently exists, and provide "technical assistance", training and intelligence to rebel forces.

Undeterred by Pentagon chief Robert Gates's warning that a no-fly zone (NFZ), as proposed by David Cameron, would be tantamount to declaring war, McCain said imposing a NFZ would not be difficult and would show "the president is serious when he says we need for Gaddafi to go". The Republican senate leader, Mitch McConnell, is arguing (again like Cameron) that supplying weapons to the rebels "could be an option". Stephen Hadley, former president George Bush's national security adviser, suggested immediate aerial arms drops.

Democrat John Kerry has also jumped in, even though, given his long experience on the senate foreign affairs committee, he should know better by now. Apparently oblivious to Britain's SAS disastrous weekend adventure in eastern Libya, Kerry said bombing Libya's military air bases, runways and airports could be effective in containing Gaddafi's air power. He claimed a NFZ would not amount to military intervention. But he added it should only be undertaken with international agreement.

The Aljazeera anchor is speechless. On the phone is a guy from Azawiya saying the city is no more. #Libya

Aljazeera now has a call from near Azawiya. He says the city was bombed and shelled to the ground. #Libya

I hope this guy is exaggerating. #Libya

Caller on Aljazeera says most of Azawiya's population has been wiped out in today's bombing. I hope it's not true. #Libya

Azawiya has become our Guernica, our Alamo. #Libya

I hope this guy was just exaggerating about Azawiya. #Libya

Azawiya is a closed box right now. It's so difficult to confirm information from there. The caller was outside the city. #Libya

Azawiya has had no electricy, phone lines, or internet for days. Very difficult to get any news from within. #Libya

18 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply

Considering a source from there was saying morale is high and only outskirts were damaged up until this afternoon (3hrs ago) #libya

intentionally misreporting is a tactic of the regime

Remember that sensational claims and crazy calls have been used by the regime in the past to cast doubts on media and harm reputation #libya

Take a look at @NicRobertsonCNN tweets. It's not as bad as the other ones that were tweeted. He's been there recently.

The caller might not be a propagandist, but someone who's terrified or traumatized. Tends to alter perception of severity.


Unfortunately the saddest thing about this is that Sabratah west of Zawiya haven't done anything to help yet...

Live Update: Video Shows Aftermath of Attack on Zawiya http://nyti.ms/h4JOvX #Libya
16 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply

This video report by Alex Crawford, a correspondent for Britain's Sky News who is in Zawiya, a rebel-held town just 30 miles west of Tripoli, shows the aftermath of fierce fighting there on Sunday (please be aware that the report includes graphic images):

    VIDEO

    Ms. Crawford also filed a report from Zawiya for The Telegraph on Monday, which began:

      The town of Zawiya was like Grozny from the Chechnya war on Saturday morning. There were great holes in the sides of buildings, and smashed-in walls down the roads leading in to the town. There were broken lampposts, and total devastation.

      For two days we have watched as tanks have come down these roads, firing shells at the buildings, apartments and houses included. But in the centre of town, in the square, the hard-core opposition people are still there and still in control, despite three attacks by columns of tanks.

      We arrived in the town on Friday, just as 10,000 people were marching towards the eastern checkpoint on the road to Tripoli, the army's front-line, in mourning for a commander who was shot by a sniper overnight.

      As they reached the checkpoint, the army opened fire, and the crowd turned and ran.

http://audioboo.fm/boos/296063-english-lpc-zintan-revol...

My notes:
Battle lasted ~3 hrs. Revos captured heavy equipment incl weapons, tank, Anti-Aircraft weapons. Captured about 14 soldiers incl a Colonel who'd been hit in the chest. Are currently interrogating the prisoners...

20 from Bn killed. 1 revolutionary killed.

Bn did a full retreat & is about 80kms away from Zintan. Current situation- number of planes above the city. No bombing.

No shit. People have been asking for days. The main youth organizer I deal with had questions about it. This needs serious confirmation.

Be cautious please until they confirm. Anyone can set up a twitter account and a website.

9:13pm: There are reports from Sirte, says our correspondent, of troops using residents as human shields. While this cant be verified, he says, certainly the government is acting much more ruthlessly.

9:15pm: Jon Leyne says that the government has, in theory, a lot of military equipment and planes in Sirte, but that very little has been used so far. The question is whether Gaddafi has enough loyal troops remaining to operate them.
