was able to capture evidence of fraud and cheating by Amnesty International USA in its on-line poll for "Human Rights Hero" of 2011.
Already under intense criticism worldwide for having ignored the plight of the Libyan people who were bombed and invaded in the name of "human rights" by western powers, leading to the "Stalingrad" type blockage and destruction of entire cities, most notably Sirte
, Amnesty International closed the on-line poll one month early, and changed the rules early January, after Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi
took the clear lead in the poll.
Libya had become the "Switzerland of Africa
" after being the poorest country in the world, after Muammar Gaddafi came to power in 1969 and handed over power to the people to a novel system of direct participatory democracy
in 1977. With free education, health, housing, electricity and water
, and a new charter of human rights
, Libya became a beacon for "freedom fighters" the world over, seeking to emulate some of the ideals of The Green Book
After a sudden turn-around by bankrupted western nations
who had been threatened by the socialist example of Libya which had shared its wealth throughout Africa and was engaged in a $42 billion project
that would have seen Africa freed from the clutches of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, the USA along with European NATO military partners, launched an all-out attack on Libya leading to immense humanitarian disaster, with the support of a compliant and compromised western news media
Screen-shots late December and early January showed that Gaddafi was leading the Amnesty International USA vote as "Human Rights Hero" of 2011
, which had clearly been unexpected and an embarrassment to the organisation which had remained largely mute on the atrocities committed by NATO
and its mercenary rebel forces. Within days of the outright lead, which was visible on the website which published a graphical representation of the most popular votes, the "human rights" organization altered the rules to close the poll
retrospectively, one month early.

However, even with the new closing date of December 31, screen shots taken on the evening of December 31
show Muammar Gaddafi was still in the clear lead
. Mathaba believes this reveals that people in the USA who cared about human rights have been awakened by the unexpected long war throughout 2011 against former anti-terrorism ally Libya, discovering the Libyan leader's immense contribution to human rights throughout Africa and beyond.
Amnesty International is facing calls by pro-democracy forces around the world to be held accountable on charges of Crimes Against Peace for having given the green light, along with many other western organisations, for the bombing and invasion of Libya, as revealed by French media interviews
with the Libyan League for Human Rights which had cooperated in providing false evidence
