Behind the Scenes of an Al Qaeda Massacre: 
Eastern Libya, February 2011
This relates some little-known details of a now-obscure massacre of at least 22 government soldiers in the first days of the Libyan uprising. It happened, apparently, around Dernah in the east, around Feb. 22, and was blamed on the government these men worked for. But video shows the same men were sentenced to death by rebel-looking captors, and some good clues say they were working for Ibrahim Al-Hassadi, Al Qaeda's number one Afghan trained militant in the area. 

The Gaddafi people were apparently right, at least in this one instance. 

Until the report is done, please see the existing work on this subject at this post of the Libyan Civil War blog, to be expanded soon as the research comes together
