CNN reporter Nima Elbagir has purportedly spoken to Safia Gaddafi, wife of Muammar Gaddafi in what CNN claims is the first time she has spoken to foreign or domestic media. The interview was arranged by CNN, through Safia’s office manager.

Safia decided to come forward due to the NATO murder of her son Saif Al-Arab, along with 3 of Gaddafi’s grandchildren, all of whom were under the age of 12. This heinous war crime has been brushed under the carpet by the contrived bin Laden fairy tale, prompting Safia to speak out.

In the emotional interview Safia speaks of NATO’s targeting of civilians, the murder of her son and his children, and how life ‘has no value anymore’. Video and transcript below.

NE: You say you want to respond to those who doubt the death of your son, Saif Al-Arab?

SG: (Audibly distraught) My son never missed an evening prayer. We had strikes every day and the strikes would start at evening prayer. Four rockets on one house! I was not there. But I wish that I was so that I may die with him. They are looking for excuses to target Muammar. What has he done to deserve this?

NE: Do you feel that you and the leader are personally targeted by NATO?

SG: My children are civilians and they have been targeted. What do they have to do with this? I want them to prosecute NATO. They killed my son and the Libyan people. They are defaming our reputation. They are committing war crimes and accusing us of embezzling billions from the Libyan people. My conscience wouldn’t allow such things. Forty countries are against us. Life has no value anymore. What would I want with life now? All I want out of life now is that the truth be heard. By the will of God, we will be victorious. We will live or die alongside the Libyan people. In the end, history will judge us.
