The real targets of NATO and US forces are not jihadi terrorists

Qaddafi’s Assassination Benefitted AFRICOM and ISIL

After Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi was brutally assassinated on October 20, 2011 by US-supported guerrillas, then-US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gloated about the murder by braying, «we came, we saw, he died».

What makes Clinton’s comments even more appalling is the fact that she was well aware from US intelligence agents on the ground in Sirte, the location of Qaddafi’s death, that the Libyan leader died as a result of being stabbed in the anus by a bayonet. Even more disgusting is that Mrs Clinton thought the gruesome death of Qaddafi was funny. She laughed with her familiar grating cackle after uttering her offensive comment about Qaddafi’s execution in an interview with CBS News.

Although any sane person would have found Mrs Clinton’s comments about the assassination of a foreign leader, who was much beloved by his people, totally disgusting, the death of Qaddafi heartened two organizations eyeing expansion in Africa: the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) and the embryonic Islamic caliphate, which, after Clinton oversaw the transfer for Libyan arms caches to jihadist groups in Syria, would eventually become the closely allied al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Without Qaddafi’s Libya acting as a bulwark against the spread of Salafism, Wahhabism, and jihadism in Africa, as well as a Muslim migrant invasion of Europe, the resulting invasion of West and Central Africa by Islamist terrorists gave AFRICOM a new raison d’être. The defeat of Qaddafi also gave a new impetus to Islamist terrorist groups to attempt similar overthrows of governments from the Central African Republic and Cameroon to Mauritania and Mali.

The September 11, 2012, attack by the jihadist Ansar al-Sharia terrorist group on the US Central Intelligence Agency station in Benghazi represented an arms deal gone bad for the Obama administration. The US intelligence cell in Benghazi was operating under the cover of a diplomatic mission. Yet this mission did nothing usually carried out by such diplomatic facilities. It issued no visas, provided no passport support for US citizens, and had no normal diplomatic personnel on its staff.

US envoy to Libya Christopher Stevens, who was acting more as an illicit arms smuggler than a diplomat, was killed by the terrorists because the CIA and Pentagon botched the deal to transfer weapons in the hands of Ansar al-Sharia to Turkish intermediaries. Stevens met with the facilitator of this weapons smuggling, Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin, shortly before the Ansar al-Sharia attack on the US compound and a nearby annex, which served as a CIA arms warehouse.

The Turks were shipping captured arms to Iskenderun, Turkey and then on to jihadist rebels in nearby Syria who were battling against the Bashar al-Assad government. The Libyan rebel group, the February 17 Brigade, which was contracted to guard the «US Consulate» in Benghazi, which was actually a CIA station, included Salafist sympathizers who owed ultimate allegiance to Ansar al-Sharia. Stevens, who was no hero but nothing more than an arms smuggler for the CIA, had been involved in other weapons transfers, including a $200 million shipment of weapons to Qatar that were destined for jihadist rebels in Iraq and Syria.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her close assistant, the Muslim Brotherhood-connected Huma Abedin, were part of a small cabal of State Department officials who communicated classified information about Libya and other Arab destabilization operations via Mrs Clinton’s private email server located at her home in Chappaqua, New York. Ansar al-Sharia was linked to the Libyan branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. The information transmitted via Clinton’s private system included Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) at the Top Secret level from CIA imagery intelligence satellites. The Department of Justice and FBI are currently investigating Clinton and her staff for a major security failure.

Ever since «Benghazi», which has become a rallying cry by those who oppose Clinton’s presidential hopes, AFRICOM and jihadists in Africa have maintained a virtual platonic relationship. Every time there has been a major terrorist attack in West Africa by jihadists, there has been a heavy presence of US Special Operations attached to AFRICOM and CIA personnel. These attacks have been used to justify a growing American, as well as French, British, and German, military and intelligence presence in Africa.

In November 2015, US and French special forces troops, including French «special police» paramilitary personnel, just happened to be on the scene of a terrorist attack on the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako, the capital of Mali. After the US and French forces engaged the terrorists who took over the hotel and seized hostages, six Americans were reportedly among those freed.

Two Islamist groups, Al-Mourabitoun and Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), claimed responsibility for the attack. The so-called terrorists managed to gain access to the hotel, which is located in a secure compound, by evading security forces stationed at the hotel’s perimeter. The terrorists arrived within the hotel compound in a car bearing diplomatic plates. An American staying in the hotel died in the attack.

In January 2016, the same exact scenario played out in Ouagadougou. Islamist terrorists, evading perimeter security, stormed the Hotel Splendid and the Ukrainian-owned Restaurant Cappuccino across the street. Some twenty-three people were killed in the attacks on the two locations in the Burkinabe capital. US and French special forces personnel were not only present at the scene immediately after the attack but some were staying at the hotel.

In the cases of Bamako and Ouagadougou, each terrorist unit was reportedly composed of three to ten personnel. None of the terrorists survived the attack. A fourth terrorist in Ouagadougou was killed at the Hotel Yibi.

Ouagadougou is the location of a major US intelligence surveillance operation in West Africa code named CREEK SAND. An intelligence fusion center in Ouagadougou is code named AZTEC ARCHER.

Burkinabe military forces used the occasion of the attack to round up as suspects several members of the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA), a Tuareg separatist group seeking independence for their homeland in northern Mali. The MNLA is a sworn enemy of Al-Qaeda and its affiliates. After a military coup in Mali, Al-Qaeda and allied Islamist terrorist groups seized control of northern Mali with suspected French and American help, after the MNLA declared the region independent as the Republic of Azawad. Also arrested after the attack on the hotel were a Tuareg candidate for the presidency of Niger, Adal Rhoubed, and three other citizens of Niger. Rhoudeb was on a visit to Burkina Faso at the time of his arrest. The US Africa Command (AFRICOM) has conducted, along with the Central Intelligence Agency, as clandestine war against African separatist groups in order to protect the interests of US oil, natural gas, mining, and other companies in Africa. Chief among AFRICOM’s and the CIA’s targets are the Tuaregs, many of whom received support in the past from Muammar Qaddafi’s government in Libya.

The growing presence of AFRICOM and US and NATO military and intelligence units in Africa is justified by the presence of jihadist terrorists. However, the real targets for the US and NATO forces are not the jihadi terrorists, but legitimate secessionist and anti-globalist groups that pose a danger to American and Western economic interests in Africa, including oil companies and gold, diamond, and uranium mining firms. As is the case with Islamist terrorist groups worldwide, the ultimate beneficiaries of terrorism are the Western multinational companies and the US military-intelligence complex. A Clinton presidency will ensure that the vicious cycle of terrorism and profiteering continues unabated.

    My good long suffering wife asked me what I thought about this heinous event at the time, and my response to what the Hillary creature said.has always stuck and struck with me…

    “F***ing Bitch” I innocently replied.

    “Don’t you ever f***kng call me that EVER again!” as I picked myself up of the bloodied linoleum – we couldn’t afford sawdust or the luxuries in life like bread and shoes. She who must be obeyed thought I was referring to it.

    But seriously, what an utter disgrace, that the murder of a much loved Head of State such as Qaddafi could be so publicly applauded by a disgusting thing such as Lesbo and Muff Diving/Ass Licking Hillary.

      Exactly Aldous, a terribly sad depressing disgrace.

Was lounging in that chair was j baker there too. Even then, it struck and jarred me…..this wasnt tge behaviour of a sane decent woman. We came, we saw, he died.

      I imagine all on this site are aware the greatest crime of Ghaddafi, well there was more than one but, the biggest threat to the ….RATs-child INFESTATION…. of the Western world was the ……..


      Ghaddafi’s plan to ditch the… FIAT $.

      Just like the GOLD-Yuan China will be introducing in April 2016.

      Obviously Ghaddafi had a few other foibles…….that irritated the ….a$hkeNAZI SCUM……

      FREE EDUCATION……up to post graduate level.

      FREE HEALTHCARE….including travelling abroad at the expense of the Libyan State, if treatment was not available in Syria.

      $ 400 per month per family, from the Libya Oil production revenues.

      In fact Ghaddafi said he would house all Libyans in need of …SOCIAL HOUSING….before he would house his own parents.
      Ghaddafi’s parents died before …all other needy Libyans had been provided with housing.
