Eman Al-Obeidy vs. the Gadhafi Regime: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight in Libya opposition forces are retreating and blaming NATO for not bombing enough. We also have more on plight of Eman al-Obeidy, who says she was raped by government forces. She tells us she was threatened again today – this time in court. Plus, we have the emotional phone call she had with her mother and much more.

    President Obama needs to accept perfectly reasonable cuts. The federal budget is up 22% over 2 years. We can certainly handle a $60 billion cut to a $3.7 trillion budget. That's 1.6%.

    Thank you Anderson & Team 360 for another Amazing show! God bless you all for the work you have been doing on behalf of Eman. I know you won't stop until she is safe.

    Good night fellow writers – Wow the hour flew by!
    The President is right about the budget. Now is Not the time for Partisan social issues (abortion,the EPA, etc.)
    Thank God the violence in Ivory Coast has abated. I truly pray that it will Not start up again.
    @Anderson et al, thank you again for your reporting on Eman al Obeidi.

    5 million times the legal limit of radiation released into the ocean. Diluted to accepable amounts? Minimal ring a bell?

    Eman, our hearts and souls are with you! Your struggle and your courage has opened our eyes. Your voice rings clear and true and awakens us to the plight of your people. We hear you and we will help!

    How long do you think the government shut down will last if it does happen on Friday?

    Eman must be free and safe. The only way this will happen is if the world continues to hear her story. Please maintain the coverage, ask the questions and facilitate support for her.
    This is an outrage. We know of her suffering, injustice and torture and can not turn our backs on her until she is free and safe.
    I am so grateful that you are covering this story with the intensity that it deserves. Let's hope that Eman is safe and free very soon.

    Safety bonuses. That's a good one. Oil companies make so much money. I hope they found something reallly worthwhile for it.

    Thanks for the updates on Japan. Tepco seems to only release tidbits of good news and we don't know the extent of the bad. They are overwhelmed and less than honest for sure. They should have asked and accepted help from the get go.

    Although the water is radioactive, the Pacific is HUGE. It will be diluted to acceptable levels easily.

    OMG that picture of those two different polluted radioactive streams of water leaking...
    Remember the days of looking to an underwater oil spill, live?
    Why isn't Tepco putting camera's outthere?!

    BP gave out safety bonuses but only 15% of the claimants from the Horizon spill have received partial payment to date.

    Safety Bonuses??? Just like Large corporations... its all about how much money they can rake in, regardless of the consequences.

    Eman al-Obeidy is a hero, a modern day Rosa Parks. Because of her strength and courage, these issues (rape, gov. corruption, etc) are put under the spotlight. We need more Eman al-Obeidy's in the world; there is nothing more important to fight for, than a world of freedom, equality and compassion.
