“West Sees Libya as Ripe at Last for Businesses." That was the lead story headline on the front page of the Oct. 29 edition of the New York Times. It was so frank it took your breath away. One week after NATO forces lynched Moammar Gadhafi, the Times admitted that NATO’s seven months of slaughtering Libyans were aimed at opening up the country to the banks and corporations of world imperialism. Someone at the Times must have noticed, since the headline in the online edition changed at least twice in the next 24 hours. By Oct. 30, it read: “Western Companies See Prospects for Business in Libya."
