Libyans frustrated, angry after coalition missile strikes building Pentagon said "not a target"
Nic Robertson of CNN was on the scene and examined parts of the weapon found in the debris which, he said, appeared to be the remains of a missile of some sort. Serial numbers, manufacture dates, warnings and all other readable markings on the pieces were written in English and he read off some of the information, including manufacture date of one of the missile fragments.

Video is 2 minutes, 40 seconds, viewable at CNN HERE.

1. Instead of Libyans, it should be Gaddafi supporters. Nic Robertson gets to see what Gaddafi wants
him to see. That is what the reporters in Tripoli are doing now.

2. Are you implying Gaddafi destroyed the building himself, planted missile parts there?
:shrug:

3. So in rebel areas, its not Libyans, but Gaddafi opponents.
You don't think there's sweetness and liberalism anywhere in Libya, do you?

Also, what's the point? Are they not Libyans? Sounds like splitting hairs.

4. Uh, no.
But the hypocritical sophistry around here is simply mindblowing. We blew up the wrong building. OOPS.

Gaddafy says we scared women and children. He, of course, did not.

How many of his Libyans are foreign mercenaries, btw?

7. I have no idea how many foreign forces are fighting on either side.
I have no way to know that. I do hope that US forces will not be fighting though.

5. Looks like lumps of metal banged around with a hammer. That building could have been bulldozed
This is what happens when one of those things goes off...

6. So you believe there is the possibility that this was a staged demolition with planted "evidence"?
