Sarkozy’s man killed Qaddafi

Libya: How Many Dirty Western Hands?

Global Research, October 01, 2012



Oh what a tangled web they weave
When first they practice to invade
A sovereign nation and deceive
The world about their dark crusade.
(Michael Leunig, Poet, Cartoonist, 1945:)

This weekend a detailed article (i) suggested that a: “French secret serviceman, acting on the express orders of the then President Sarkozy, is suspected of ”the murder of Colonel Quaddafi”, on 20th October last year.
Whilst bearing in mind that the NATO-backed insurgents now in power, who have near destroyed much of Libya, de-stabilised, terrorized and hope to carve up Libya’s resources for their, rather than the country’s benefit, have every reason to wish to disassociate themselves from the butchery of Colonel Quaddafi’s terrible death, the new allegations illuminate interesting points.
The French assassin, it is claimed, infiltrated the mob rabidly manhandling the Colonel, and shot him in the head.
“The motive, according to well placed (Libyan) sources”, was to prevent any chance of interrogation into Sarkozy’s links with Colonel Quaddafi.
The Mail previously revealed (ii) quoting a French governmental briefing note published by an investigative website, that fifty million euros has been: “laundered though bank accounts in Panama and Switzerland … from Colonel Quaddafi, to fund (Sarkozy’s 2007) election as President”, which if correct: “would have broken political financing laws.” Sarkozy’s: “numerous visits to Libya” were also cited.
Further claims are that: “The Swiss account was opened in the name of the sister of Jean-Francois Cope, the leader of Mr Sarkozy’s ruling UMP party, and the President’s right-hand-man.”
Quaddafi’s son, Saif alIslam, whose life hangs in the balance and no doubt further so, should he be subject to the Libyan “judicial system”, has stated unequivocally regarding the Sarkozy campaign funding: “We have all the details and are ready to reveal everything … We funded it.”
No wonder Saif, also generous funder (£1.5 million) to his former place of, advanced study, the prestigious London School of Economics – where he also delivered the annual Ralph Miliband Lecture in May2010, named for the renowned academic and father of the former UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband and his brother Ed, current Leader of the Labour Party – has been abandoned by the Western powers who had formerly welcomed him – then conspired in another illegal coup, this time in his country.
Sarkozy of course, on becoming President, memorably welcomed Colonel Quaddafi on a State Visit to Paris in December 2007, greeting him as “Brother Leader” and hosting his famed Bedouin tent next to the Elysee Palace.
Tony Blair, of course visited Quaddafi on many occasions, even flying in the Colonel’s private plane, pushing mega business deals. He too is mute on the horrors of the death and the fate of his children, grandchildren and country.
The Mail also makes the points that: “ The United Nations mandate which sanctioned (the misnamed ‘no fly zone’) expressly stated that the Western allies could not interfere in the internal politics of the country.”

“Instead the almost daily bombing runs ended with Quaddafi’s overthrow, while both French and British military ‘advisors’ were said to have assisted on the ground.”

“Now Mahmoud Jibril, who served as interim Prime Minister following Gaddafi’s overthrow, has told Egyptian TV: ‘It was a foreign agent who mixed with the revolutionary brigades to kill Gaddafi.’ “
Another Tripoli source, according to the paper, stated: “Sarkozy had every reason to try to silence the Colonel and as quickly as possible”, with a further “diplomatic source” also stressing Quaddafi’s threats to reveal the financial details of the funding to the 2007 French Presidential elections donations.
An interesting point, if correct, is made by Rami El Obeidi, the : “former head of foreign relations for the Libyan Transitional Council (who) said he knew that Quaddafi had been tracked through his satellite telecommunications system as he talked to: “the Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.” Which begs an elephantine question: are the two murderous Western backed rampages against Libya and Syria and their leaders connected?
How much of alleged murky financial deals does Syria’s President also know?
Interestingly, Ben Oman Shaaban (22) one of those who attacked Colonel Quaddaffi was badly injured, seemingly by those loyal to the Colonel, in an attack in July. Flown to Paris for treatment, he died in hospital last week. Shabaan was said to have frequently brandished the handgun said to have killed the Colonel. If true, he would have interesting knowledge about the appalling events of the day.
Sarkozy has consistently denied receiving money from the Libyan Leader and was not available to give a comment to the Mail. Enquiries into “alleged financial irregularities “, are ongoing.

    you live by the sword…

  2. Tapestry says:

    Qaddaffi didn’t invade anyone

  3. horehound says:

    Surely Qaddaffi has to take some responsibility for his own end.
    If true then by giving $50 million to a man who became president he Quaddaffi made himself a possible threat to France, isn’t their an argument for saying that if this is true the DGSE were simply doing their job of in protecting the integrity of the republic, people have died for much less, regnum defende.

  4. Tapestry says:

    we smash Libya. kill their people. seize their gold and their oil. are you proud? Qaddaffi tried to protect them from the predators.

    • horehound says:

      I’m not proud of any of our (UK) foreign polices but once the Arab spring started what choice did we have other than to go along with it.
      In situations like Libya their is no ‘right’ thing to to, the only real world option is the least worst.

  5. Tapestry says:

    The Arab Spring was ‘made in Washington DC’. They destabilized the region before we sent in the bombers and started slaughtering people, and finally pillaging all their resources.

    • horehound says:

      That’s where we we’ll have to agree to disagree, I think the Arab spring was simply a product of restless populations feeling frustrated at the slow rate of change and becoming more empowered due to new technology’s / social networks, it was a long time coming.In 2010 Turkeys per capita income was $10,000 more than Libya’s and unemployment rate was significantly (15% +) lower, north african/arab youths look at Turkey and think why not us?
      What was the alternative? Live in a Qaddaffi fiefdom forever? I wouldn’t want to whatever the faults of democracy.

  6. Tapestry says:

    Libyans had a high standard of living, higher than Britain. That’s what the One World Government won’t tolerate. Endless poverty and debt, no trouble. Leave them alone. But once they get rich and start to get notions of acting as bankers to a region, bypassing the Rothschilds, it’s smash and grab time.

    Look carefully at the organizations behind the Arab Spring. All funded from washington, and CIA.

    Hi Tap, Sometimes even you are wrong.
    Quaddaffi was one of the most evil people on the planet.
    He forced newly married couples to have 60,000 Dinar put into their bank accounts.
    He forced cars onto people for half the real value.
    He made people have bank loans at no interest for ever.
    He made people get educated at no cost, even paying for University expences in foreign lands.
    He found land for farmers with all the equipment and seeds, for free.
    He made people construct the biggest Civil engineering project called GMMRP. And made them construct 3000 miles of waterways, and 13,000 wells.
    Tap I cannot go on, tears are forming in my eyes.
    How come we have not had such an evil Prime Minister, what did we do wrong !!

    Surely the point is not whether he was a good or right leader, the point should be that if the countru had rebels who wanted to cause an uprising and overthrow the government, the west shouldn’t intervine, by bombing the countries armed forces to aid the uprising.

    Imagine if the same was to happen in this country, and a rebel mob wanted to overthrow the government, can you imagine Europe creating a no fly zone over the UK and bombing the British troops ?

    @Anon 7:04pm

    Let us understand the West and Gadaffi.

    See here how the British government were happy to release Megrahi in 2008 and wanted to be friends with Libya/Gaddafi in 2008.

    Then, by late 2010 then wanted to bomb him, why?

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/pdfs/01_09_09_straw_salmond.pdf

    Because he said he was going to nationalise the oil companies and sell oil in currencies other than USD – Google it, it is well reported.

    So, he went from being our friend to some who had to be eliminated.
