Was A Questionable Rape Accusation A Convenient Excuse For Regime Change In The Middle East?

Readers may remember one of the media’s anointed darlings of the Libyan uprising of 2011. For those who need a reminder, in 2011 Muammar Gadhafi’s Libya was convulsed by popular protests generated by the Arab Spring. When Gadhafi stupidly broadcast to the world his intention to crush the revolt by massive force, some Western nations—who had previously favored him—turned on him and used their militaries to have him deposed.

One of the propaganda stories to arise out of the uprising was the drama of Iman Al-Obeidi. On March 26, 2011, she ran into Tripoli’s Rixos Hotel, where foreign journalists were staying. She screamed and wailed that she had been raped by Gadhafi’s security forces, and bared scars and bruises as evidence.

The performance was so effective that I now wonder if it was part of some covert Western intelligence operation.

The drama Al-Obeidi created for the world press

The media hailed her as a brave victim who dared to speak out against the nasty bullies of Gadhafi’s police state. Critical examination of her story was nearly nonexistent. But this mattered little, since Western nations had declared a “right to protect” (R2P, in journalist Pepe Escobar’s brilliant shorthand) Libyan citizens. This R2P quickly and cynically came to mean a right to regime change by foreign military force.

But cynicism and opportunism are the order of the day, it seems. The media gushed rivers of tears over Al-Obeidi’s (unverified) rape accusations. Hillary Clinton personally intervened to have her granted asylum in the United States, with all attendant privileges.

She described her alleged “abuse” in a 2011 CNN interview. She played the victim role to the hilt, wearing traditional dress and weeping on cue. She claimed to have been beaten, urinated on, and repeatedly violated by about 15 men.

Libyan government protested that Al-Obeidi was a liar, a prostitute, and was mentally ill. Of course, no one believed the government. The narrative played right into the American obsession with rape accusations and imperialist regime-changing. Her was the perfect story of the hour, made to order for the occasion. As a psychological operation, it was totally effective.

After Al-Obeidi arrived in the United States, the new Libyan embassy in Washington granted her a lifetime pension of $1,800 per month. How did she pull this off? She got this money by bursting into the embassy and demanding it. The embassy granted her the pension in 2012.

Clinton celebrated the illegal operation to overthrow Libya’s government, and personally gave rape accuser Al-Obeidi asylum in the United States.

But it soon became clear that Al-Obeidi was not the angel she was made out to be. She now no longer has any contact with the embassy.

To the feminist ideologues, of course, she is a secular martyr. Whether her stories are true are also irrelevant. Feminist Germaine Greer shed more tears over Al-Obeidi when she lamented that accusers’ stories are called into question.

In Greer’s universe, a rape accuser should not be questioned. “Her [Al-Obeidi’s] mistake was to survive. Because she did not die for other people’s crimes, the offenses against her are now described as ‘alleged.’” So goes the thinking of the radical feminist archetype.

Al-Obeidi’s track record since arriving in the United States has caused even former supporters to doubt her story. She has been charged with assaulting a police officer. She has been ordered by a court to get mental health counseling. In short, it is now clear that she is a deeply unstable woman.

She was resettled in Denver, Colorado. Not satisfied with the pension she was getting, she was encouraged to find a job. But she soon proved have an entitlement mentality. She would not show up for job interviews. She was constantly fighting with people.

Even her case worker, a man named Mevlani, came to see the real Al-Obeidi. A recent CNN article notes:

Mevlani said he wanted to help. He has seen people who suffered all sorts of tragedy but al-Obeidi was particularly difficult. He felt it went beyond the trauma, beyond the harrowing circumstances she had escaped.

“There’s always something going on. She expects things. She has a sense of entitlement,” Mevlani said.
Her caseworker at the time felt she expected to be treated like a queen, especially after Clinton’s support.

Notice how even when it is clear that an anointed media darling is exposed as a vicious fraud, the media still contorts itself into pretzels to try to portray her as the victim.

Al-Obeidi was arrested four times in two years, and tested positive for drugs. The facts and the record are clear that she is a violent drug user. A recent CNN article goes further:

“She has some serious issues with substance abuse,” Deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel said in court, according to the Daily Camera newspaper in Boulder. “It is very concerning that she is not only on probation but on bond and continuing to use substances.”

Boulder District Judge Patrick Butler issued a stern warning [to Al-Obeidi].

“You’ve been given more chances than you probably deserve,” Butler said. “This is the last chance from me to show that you are not a danger to the community while out on bond.”

In May 2015, she was found guilty of second-degree assault. She had assaulted two men in a bar. She poured her beer over one of them, and threw a beer glass at another. The man’s wounds were serious, and required stitches. It was a felony assault. Her previous three arrests had been for disorderly conduct and assault.

Convicted criminal, drug user, and rape accuser Al-Obeidi

Personally, I don’t believe these problems magically just “happened” after she arrived in the United States. Feminist apologists will try to massage and spin away her crimes and instability, but reasonable people know better. I believe that she has always been this type of person. Her credibility is zero. But the Western media gleefully used her as a propaganda tool.

The whole story is revealing in what it tells us about the popular culture and the political culture. Her crimes are revealing. They parallel the crimes and lies of the Western powers, who destroyed Libya in a cynical regime change operation in violation of international law.

What do we conclude from all this? Her story shows how rape accusers can be pawns in the hands of unscrupulous big players, who care nothing about truth, and only about their own purposes.

  1. Soros and company have been funding these color revolutions. 5 months before this started to happen, Tunisia was the first I recall, I was told that this was going to happen. I was told by someone who worked for a military contracting company:
    “You wait and see. We are going to set North Africa on fire. And there’s nothing you or your fucking Ron Paul can do to stop it. We’re gonna make a lot of money”.
    So it’s 100 percent likely that she, and everything else was funded. This is why I have concluded that “free speech” is bullshit. You see while there are people who will cry “The Second Amendment was written before the AR-15! Ban it!!”, those same people will gloss over that the First Amendment was written before radio and television, corporate media conglomerates, internet, and by men who never fathomed a global communist revolution.
    This means that a bunch of libertarians sorts (for example) can decry the nanny state until they are blue in the face and be ignored but one person who calls himself a woman complains that he can’t flop his dick around in a womans’ locker room and suddenly laws are changed, policies flouted and touted, and you’d think it was the end of the fucking world.
    Notice that Planned Parenthood has been blown wide open but everybody is pissed off about a lion. The media is in control of outrage, and that’s why one fat-faced rape accuser can “make a difference” when hordes of people trying to be free go nowhere. Free speech is dead. And we’ll all someday enjoy watching the effects that a punch in the mouth has on putting an end to snark.

  2. Libya was better under Wacky Gaddafi. Iraq better under Maddas Saddam. The border between Iraq and Syria has all but disappeared and is now ISISland, thanks to the power vacuum we created when we took out Maddas. Way to go, team!

      1. Look into monarchy. All countries run better under monarchy than democracy. Plus you don’t have to deal with politics. A plus in my book!

    1. Indeed…some countries are not ready for democracy and liberation merely makes matters worse. Gaddafi was another one whom wouldn’t play ball with the west and got brutally ousted for it just like Saddam. These false moral fables are invented to keep the western masses emotionally onside.

  3. This is why I look forward to Quintus’ articles. They questions and give background information on matters no other writer I know of do. Thanks for a thought provocing read.

  4. Another of Monica Lewinsky’s ex-boyfriend’s wife’s professional failures.
    Sadly most of her voters can’t even find Libya on a map; they’re just cut from the same entitlement cloth as this bitch.

    1. I doubt many of the “Benghazi” screamers even know what country they are talking about, or that Benghazi is not a country. What is your point?

      1. Hence why I said “Libya.”
        The Benghazi disaster is not the only reason why I would never in a million years support Monica Lewinsky’s ex-boyfriend’s wife for president. I just cited that as one example.
        I do agree that the GOP tired (and failed spectacularly) to make political hay out of this incident, and that their primary motivation for doing so was to give GOP voters the idea that they’re doing something when they’re really not.

  5. Don’t be decieved, Gaddafi was a great leader/dictator. The Arab Springs were nothing but a coup, instigated and initiated by MI6/CIA/Mossad. It was never about ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’, Libya was the largest oil exporting African State, that should speak for itself.
    In 2011, the West’s objective was clearly not to help the Libyan
    people, who already had the highest standard of living in Africa, but to
    oust Gaddafi, install a puppet regime, and gain control of Libya’s
    natural resources.
    For over 40 years, Gaddafi promoted economic democracy and used the
    nationalized oil wealth to sustain progressive social welfare programs
    for all Libyans. Under Gaddafi’s rule, Libyans enjoyed not only free
    health-care and free education, but also free electricity and
    interest free loans. Now thanks to NATO’s intervention the health-care
    sector is on the verge of collapse as thousands of Filipino health
    workers flee the country, institutions of higher education across the
    East of the country are shut down, and black outs are a common
    occurrence in the once thriving Tripoli.
    A decade of failed military expeditions in the Middle East has
    left the American people in trillions of dollars of debt. However, one
    group has benefited immensely from the costly and deadly wars: America’s
    Military-Industrial-Complex.
    Building new military bases means billions of dollars for America’s
    military elite and war profiteers. Following the bombing of Iraq, the United States built new bases in Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
    Following the bombing of Afghanistan, the United States is now
    building military bases in Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
    Following the recent bombing of Libya, the United States has built
    new military bases in the Seychelles, Kenya, South Sudan, Niger and Burkina Faso.
    Given that Libya sits atop the strategic intersection of the African,
    Middle Eastern and European worlds, Western control of the nation, has
    always been a remarkably effective way to project power into these three
    regions and beyond.
    “I did all I could to help people understand the concept of real
    democracy, where people’s committees ran our country. But that was never
    enough, as some told me, even people who had 10 room homes, new suits
    and furniture, were never satisfied, as selfish as they were they wanted
    more. They told Americans and other visitors, that they needed
    “democracy” and “freedom”… never realizing it was a cut throat system,
    where the biggest dog eats the rest, but they were enchanted with those
    words, never realizing that in America, there was no free medicine, no
    free hospitals, no free housing, no free education and no free food,
    except when people had to beg or go to long lines to get soup”. ~
    Mu’ummar Qaddafi

      1. I heard this about iraq too, but there doesn’t seem to be much evidence as far as I’m aware.
        With or without evidence though the banksters won’t tolerate country that won’t play by the rules

        1. True about hard evidence…But our economies managed by the bankers are backed by western military force, and the relevant security services MI6/CIA/Mossad pulling the puppet strings in the background. I was based in Thailand during the 2nd Iraq war and their news channels were quite open about our motivations and intentions…Oil.
          On the contrary to when I was back home in Blighty the news channels were using emotive words such as liberation, freedom and oppression. All bullshit in my opinion and to me it exposed the fallacy of the BBC and unbiased reporting.

        2. There used to be at least a clutch of brave honest reporters who did actual investigative reporting. Ultimately though they were still gagged to some extent and you had to read through the lines. Re. oil as a ‘real motive’, that’s pretty much the only ulterior motive that sometimes gets admitted to in the west, and sometimes even in the MSM, and that probably reflect the rise of the left (I first learned of the role of oil through reading Chomsky for instance). Now though people are getting wise to the banks, the petro-dollar system (which is a bit more than just oil as its tied into the whole reserve currency thing, and the post-bretton woods system) but that stuff only occasionally surfaces in the MSM and then only carefully in either select right wing (infowars etc) or leftwing (the guardian) outlets

    1. Bump. Just had a snoop at his green book and the dude had principles. He came from the bottom and was a man of the people.

    2. Saddam was also objectively a very good leader. He did have a mass killing decades ago, which killed far fewer than the US government has killed over there trying to “solve” the problem of Saddam, but his accomplishments were numerous and I have noted them before in prior posts. Basically as long as you did like you were supposed to, it was a free and prosperous nation, with schools, libraries, CHURCHES, mosques and a good economy (at least prior to the Iran war that the US funded!)
      I don’t quite understand the rationale of removing good leaders and replacing them with anarchy… sure, it lets the US pretend it needs a military of the enormous size that it does, but it also is bankrupting our country and making us very, very unsafe. We’re not even profiting off the invasions the way older colonial power used to. The entire thing is idiotic, dangerous, immoral and genocidal.

    3. Wow. I didn’t know about that. You’ve inspired me to look into that more.
      The one thing I do know is that it’s been decades since the U.S. actually stood for democracy in reality.

  6. She got a pension— while you and I slave away and get half out earnings stolen by force??
    This is obscene. Deport her now. No exception. OUT.

  7. Even though ghadafi had qeustionable tactics one must admire how he stood up to the world alone.

  8. Another useful idiot living out her usefulness, she was always an unstable piece of shit. What a fucked up bunch of people there are that are running the mainstream show. Without their media, they’d be nothing, and they would have no control except for the money.

  9. The West/NATO overthrew the Gadaffi regime according to the same format they used against the Serbs in former Yugoslavia; that is they used local Islamists/Jihadi terrorists to ferment violence and then the Western governments through the controlled media to portray this as “peaceful protests.” Legitimate self defence by the State under attack is then portrayed as “massacres” and “atrocities” against the so called peaceful protestors who nearly always are composed of Al Qaeda foreign jihadis in addition to the local terrorists.
    The entire concept is based on lies. From the ground up. Every thing you are told by the Western media is to deceive. In both Libya and former Yugoslavia, horrible atrocities by jihadis are blamed on the military and government of the State under attack. Things like beheadings and rape committed by the jihadis are quietly passed over.
    This woman is no doubt a stooge in the propaganda campaign used by the West to set up Gadaffi for attack. As the author said, the false rape allegations play right in to the hands of the gullible Western public and the useful idiots of the liberal/left in the West. Just like the fable about babies being thrown out of incubators that helped justify the Gulf War.
    Libya today is a failed state run by people who are essentially Al Qaeda operatives in collusion with Western powers. It is a place where impoverished Christian migrants are abducted, raped, tortured and occasionally beheaded en masse by the very people that the West support and help keep in power.

  10. Seriously who would rape THAT ? I’d rather jerk off for the rest of my life than put my precious dick in the abomination she is.

    1. Word! I second your opinion on this woman’s ‘attractiveness’.
      This is a sort of ‘continuation’ to my comment on one of the articles here about dating Muslim women. The first things that come popping from this Libyan woman’s story- sense of entitlement, lazy and violent.
      THIS is what those women from Middle Eastern countries are like, and Westerners think they’re sweet, docile and demure. Couldn’t be farther from the truth. In these cultures, women are basically worth nothing- they are not attractive, they are not kind human beings, they are not intelligent, they live their lives in a constant state of idleness, demanding everything on a silver platter, for reasons unbeknownst to anyone else but themselves. They have a tremendous sense of entitlement and their lack of education, both academic as well as in the sense of civilization, makes them to be these rude, rough, loudmouth, violent and belligerent creatures.
      If you want to see these women in their true environment, there are many youtube videos with these (mostly women from Palestine, as the media is focused on the political situation) acting in situations of conflict or mere interaction with other people, whether authorities, locals, passers by, etc. The shy wall flower only pops up in the West, to milk the system and play the ‘racist’ and ‘oppressed’ cards- you’ll be astounded at their violence, the way they shout and yell, even teenage girls and young women seem to be out of control and a dozen males can hardly contain a few of these creatures.
      This chick obviously had some mental and behavioral issues and found herself the darling of the system. Instead of putting those ‘traditional values’ and that ‘decency’ (that all these women claim to have and respect, unlike Western women) to good use, get a job or at least make herself useful in any manner to the society and stay out of trouble, she expected to be coddled, doted on, waited on hand and foot, simply because she existed.
      I can’t believe the audacity of these creatures.
      Is she still in the US? Why haven’t they deported her??

  11. During the first gulf war when Saddam invaded Kuwait, I remember watching a
    video of a Kuwaiti girl crying in front of the camera to reporters saying that Iraqi soldiers had broken into the hospital and started myrdering the patients. Turned out that it was CIA propaganda. I wouldn’t be surprised if this case in Libya was also the work of the CIA. After all, they have a special activities division and a political action group that carries out black ops missions meant to destabilize governments.

    1. The CIA, and other secret services, routinely use women and gays to do their dirty work. It’s regarded that normal men couldn’t do the things that get asked of them.

  12. Difficult to prove things like this, but the colour revolutions are dirty as hell. Stirring the shit in the middle east keeps the the west, the banks, the military industrial complex in business. The West destroyed what was a functional state, whatever its problems. It did so in the name of democracy and feminism. The more this goes on the harder its going to be for your feminist, human rights supporting liberals and guardian readers to fail to see that the causes they are supporting is part of a system keeping this world in flames. I’m glad this article has been written, there’s a pressure point here – press it hard.

    1. Women are unstable creatures, driven by emotion. Don’t get me wrong, plenty of guys are just as fucked up, but with guys it’s a lot easier to figure out the selfish from the control freak, the narcissist from the arrogant etc, with women, they have an incredible ability to deceive and act and pretend until they get what they want and suddenly their true face comes out, their feelings have magically changed over night, this is no longer the girl that was holding hands with you, kissing you last night and telling you what a great guy you are; this is now a girl who can’t stand your sight, and your very existence insults her and there is nothing you can do to talk sense to this raging beast

    2. The Philosopher Schopenhaur said similar. He argued that women shouldn’t be allowed to testify in court. In the old days the courts had to have the husband or fathers permission to let their women speak in court. It wasn’t that the women were chattel, it was that they had to hold someone accountable when the women lied.

  13. Everytime the West gets involved in the Middle East it just makes things worse. Think Muslim a Brotherhood ISOS or Hamas.

  14. of course she played and dressed up the “poor conservative oppressed muslim girl ” spiel for the cameras even though she doesnt in her homeland just for the sympathy. Shes like many girls from conservative countries(middle east india etc) like to play up in the west. Looking for a white western knight to save their lying crazy ass from their “scary men”. This is rather sociopathic thinking where they are willing to paint their culture,family, countrys and other fellow country men as oppressive or evil for their own gain.
    But Ive known a couple people that have bipolar and schzio and they basically act very similarly despite racial,religious,age and sex differences. They are belligerent, sometimes abuse narcotics,entitled and know how to fool and lie to people. Theyll be crazy with you but when it suits them then theyll quickly play calm and shy in front other people especially law enforcement.
    I think she has those conditions. People need to know how to identify these ill people and these people need to be labeled. It would be great if by law everyone must get a psych exam so we know whos the crazy that we shouldnt take seriously(and banned from positions of influence) but i sense that can easily be abused.
    Most people when they meet her will just say “ohh thats just crazy middle eastern drama and temper” or “persian princess mindset”, though true they really should look at the deeper behavior, cause I doubt a whole people or culture is suffering from a type of mental illness unless they are refugees from a war zone suffering from ptsd.
    QC Im glad you written this article instead of taking it at face value like other men have even red pillers whom will straight up believe any oppression in middle eastern society stories. Every one of these types need to be called out from conservative to liberal culture instead of dismissing it and saying ” yeah that culture is sterotypically crazy so it must be true what local feminists there are saying”. All of these feminists types are the same all western influenced and all crazy.
    thanx QC you are really the golden boy of rok. Always a pleasure reading your bits.


  15. This reminds me of the fake “they are killing [Kuwaiti] babies in incubators” line made by a crying Arabic nurse who had been vacationing in Kuwait, known only as “nayirah” which inspired the US to go to war against Iraq in 1990.
    Years later, we found out she was not a nurse, and not vacationing in Kuwait, but was Nayirah Saud al Sabah, daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the USA and also related to the ruler of Kuwait, Sheik al Sabah. She cried fake crocodile tears about how premature Kuwaiti babies were taken from their incubators and thrown to the ground to die on a cold hospital floor. Her performance was the lead story on American news channels throughout the country. Of course, it never happened, and she was in America during this supposed atrocity.
    Watch the video of this 15 year old “testifying” before Congress, and realize how women will lie, even when they have nothing to benefit. You cannot trust them. (Note: Im pretty sure lying to Congress is a felony–nothing has happened to her)

  16. The intervention was not criminal. It was sanctioned by the UN Security Council, which is what bestows legitimacy to a military intervention into the sovereign territory of another state. Call it immoral or misguided or counterproductive, but illegal it was not.
