A UN Report has found that both Gaddafi and the rebels are guilty of war crimes and abuses of prisoners in Libya. That NATO are now supporting a group who are guilty of human rights abuses is not apparently up for discussion.

Reporter Wyre Davis even says that "whatever this UN report says is not going to change anything on the ground" for the Libyan government, the rebels, or NATO. Given that the premise for the mission was to do with saving human lives, one might expect that such revelations would change things for NATO.
