The Forgotten War – Understanding The Incredible Debacle Left Behind By NATO In Libya

In retrospect, Obama’s intervention in Libya was an abject failure, judged even by its own standards. Libya has not only failed to evolve into a democracy; it has devolved into a failed state. Violent deaths and other human rights abuses have increased severalfold. Rather than helping the United States combat terrorism, as Qaddafi did during his last decade in power, Libya now serves as a safe haven for militias affiliated with both al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The Libya intervention has harmed other U.S. interests as well: undermining nuclear nonproliferation, chilling Russian cooperation at the UN, and fueling Syria’s civil war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only possible answer for NATO is a rapid re-invasion of the country, which is going to look both awkward and idiotic to the rest of the world.

It is very clear that the Libyan people have had enough of the puppet government which was thrust upon them, after Qaddafi's assassination, and want their country back.

NATO ready to advise Libya on security, eyes more drones

NATO's chief said Thursday the alliance was ready to advise Libya's government on defense and security issues, saying the deteriorating situation in the country is posing new security threats for Europe that require a more robust defense.

Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg also told a news conference in Rome that the alliance plans to bolster its surveillance of the region by using drones based at the air station in Sigonella, Sicily, starting next year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to NATO'S Secretary-General Stoltenberg: you do not have the luxury of waiting until "....next year." militarily.

The only option NATO has is another invasion of Libya, followed by a despotic NATO occupation of Libya.

And we all know just how well that works, with the "Afghanistan model", fresh in our minds.

Paul Craig Roberts: The Threat Posed to International Relations By The Neoconservative Ideology of American Hegemony

While the neoconservatives were preoccupied for a decade with their wars in the Middle East, creating a US Africa Command, organizing color revolutions, exiting disarmament treaties, surrounding Russia with military bases, and “pivoting to Asia” to surround China with new air and naval bases, Vladimir Putin led Russia back to economic and military competence and successfully asserted an independent Russian foreign policy.

When Russian diplomacy blocked Washington’s planned invasion of Syria and Washington’s planned bombing of Iran, the neoconservatives realized that they had failed the “first objective” of the Wolfowitz Doctrine and had allowed “the re-emergence of a new rival . . . on the territory of the former Soviet Union” with the power to block unilateral action by Washington.

The attack on Russia began.

Egypt says political accord not enough to tackle terrorism in Libya

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry says a potential political agreement in Libya would not counter the threat posed by the ISIL Takfiri terrorists who have a base of support in eastern Libya.

Shoukry made the remarks during a press conference in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, on Tuesday.

“The approach by several countries, which imagine an accord between politicians will deal with the effects of terrorism, is astonishing,” the Egyptian foreign minister said.

Greece — Syriza – Subservience to Neoliberalism – The Killing Plague that Knows No Mercy?

Greece’s debt today stands at 175 % of her economic output. The best – and only decent and socially as well as economically viable option – is exiting the Eurozone by her own decision.

Greece has various options/

Tsipras-Varoufakis must know them. Perhaps they keep them hidden away until “the last ditch” moment. To begin with, they could have imposed and still can impose strict capital transfer controls, to avoid the outflow of precious capital from Greek oligarchs, capital that eventually is missing for rebuilding Greece’s economy and would need to be replaced by new debt. Although, this is basically against EU’s rule of free transfer of capital, Greece as a sovereign country, can roll back its EU vassal status, take back its sovereignty and do what every reasonable central bank would do in Greece’s situation – impose capital transfer restrictions. After all, the Euro is also – and still is – Greece’s currency.

Western Intervention in Libya a Recipe for Disaster

Libya is in chaos; it has been since the West (especially France) and Qatar-aided civil war that brought an end to Colonel Qadhafi’s regime, which had lasted 41 years and guaranteed, if not democracy, the kind of stability that is now sorely missing from the North African country.

Evil Assad, Evil Gaddafi, Now Evil Putin: How the West Sells War (and Makes a Killing)

As the conflict in Ukraine persists and as peace talks between Putin and western European leaders (Merkel and Hollande) continue, it is important to look at the economic actors/interests that benefit from conflict and regime change in the Ukraine and how this compares to situations like Syria, Libya and Iraq. There are under-reported angles and interests to these conflicts that we hear little about in western mainstream media and that many do not look for because they are too caught up in political or human dramas.

Barb Weir interviews moderate Syrian rebels

You must be joking. Since when are Syrian rebels from Syria? They come from Afar, Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Australia, Azabaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belgium, Benin, Bosnia, Britain, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Canada, Central African Republic, Chad, Chechnya, Denmark, Djibouti, Egypt, France…

…but Syria? Please, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a Syrian Syrian rebel. And there weren’t that many to start with.

Well, ISIL, ISIS, the Islamic state – whatever you want to call it – they’re paying even better and getting their money from the same places as us

How to defeat violent Islamic fundamentalism

Alan Hart says Western foreign policy and repressive Arab and Muslim regimes are at the core of violent Islamic fundamentalism, and that Western leaders could change both, but they will not.

Feb 21 15:04

At War With Those “Who Have Perverted Islam”

The latest ISIL political ally to surface is Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, and an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for president in 2008.

During a speech at this week’s White House conference on countering violent extremism,President Obama described the enemy that calls itself ISIL:

“We are not at war with Islam; we are at war with people who have perverted Islam.”

That statement is sensible and it is clear. It represents the President’s careful separation of ISIL (initially self-designated as the Islamic State in the Levant) from the world’s Muslim population.

ISIL is not remotely representative of Islam. It steals its language the way extremists out of Jewish and Christian backgrounds pervert those religious communities.

Feb 21 14:57

How, to contain and defeat perverted and violent Islamic fundamentalism

American foreign policy and authoritarian Muslim regimes, cause/provoke Muslim hurt, humiliation, anger and the despair of no hope.

If perverted and violent Islamic fundamentalism (PVIF) in all of its manifestations is to be contained and defeated there’s one thing above all others that must happen – Western leaders, starting with President Obama, must open their minds to the fact that consequences have causes and then address the causes.

There are two main and related causes of PVIF (Perverted and violent Islamic fundamentalism):

(1) American-led Western foreign policy for the Arab and wider Muslim world including its double standard as demonstrated by refusal to call and hold Israel to account for its defiance of international law and rejection of the Palestinian claim for justice.

(2) The corruption, authoritarianism and repression of most if not all Arab and other Muslim regimes. In most cases they are regimes supported/endorsed by American-led Western foreign policy.

Egypt is calling the West’s bluff over its phony war on ISIS

Western states are trumpeting ISIS as the latest threat to civilisation, claiming total commitment to their defeat, and using the group’s conquests in Syria and Iraq as a pretext for deepening their own military involvement in the Middle East.

Yet as Libya seems to be following the same path as Syria – of‘moderate’anti-government militias backed by the West paving the way for ISIS takeover – Britain and the US seem reluctant to confront them there, immediately pouring cold water on Egyptian President Sisi’s request for an international coalition to halt their advances.

Egypt acts as middleman for Russia-Libya arms deal

The Libya dossier has now risen to the top of the priority list of the administration of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, following an increase in the number of kidnappings and the killing of Egyptians at the hands of armed militias affiliated with the Islamic State (IS) in Libya. The latest such incident resulted in the slaughter of 21 Egyptian Copts on the Tripoli coast, leading to intervention and mediation by Cairo to bolster the Libyan army’s capabilities in confronting the militias.

Judicial Watch Forces Obama Administration to Release Pentagon Benghazi Attack Documents

Judicial Watch announced today that the Obama administration finally turned over hundreds of pages of documents about the military response to the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound and other facilities in Benghazi. The documents, which are heavily blacked out (redacted), confirm that the U.S. Military, through its U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) drafted orders for a military response to the attack, specifically “to protect vital naval and national assets.” Other documents suggest that the military, hours after the attack, tied the assault to a group supporting “an Islamic state” that wanted to attack U.S. interests in Libya in retaliation for a drone strike on an al-Qaeda leader.

Military intervention in Libya “unacceptable”, Tuareg official

Libya's Tuareg representative to the Libyan national dialogue, Mossa Al-Koni yesterday rejected any "foreign military intervention in Libya" stressing that his country "does not export terrorism, but terrorism penetrated its territories following the French military intervention in Mali in 2013".

In an interview with the Anadolu Agency, Al-Koni who served as a member of the transitional council after the revolution of 17 February 2011 said: "No one accepts the killing of Egyptian Copts in this way, the images were shocking not to only to Libyans but for the international community, especially that these innocent people had nothing to do with the ongoing conflict."

He added that these actions "cannot be attributed to Libya or Libyans".

Obama Destroyed Libya

Bush committed this error in Iraq. Obama made it in Libya. And now he's doing it again in Syria.What he did to Libya is as bad as what Bush did to Iraq and Afghanistan. He doesn’t deserve a historical pass.

When Obama took office in 2009, Libya was under the clutches of longtime dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. But things were looking up.

Bush and Gaddafi had cut a deal to lift Western trade sanctions in exchange for Libya acknowledging and paying restitution for its role in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. In a rare triumph for Bush, Libya also agreed to give up its nuclear weapons research program. Libyan and Western analysts anticipated that Gaddafi’s dictatorship would be forced to accept liberal reforms, perhaps even free elections and rival political parties, in order to attract Western investment.

Libya crisis ‘created by NATO intervention’

NATO’s 2011 intervention created the devastation and chaos in Libya that enabled the rise of ISIS militants and the current crisis surrounding the killing of 21 Egyptian Christians, an American scholar told RT.

The current situation is “precisely the consequence of the kind of war NATO waged in Libya, destroying the infrastructure, collapsing the state, and allowing a bunch of different militia groups to be treated as heroes,” said Vijay Prashad, a professor at Trinity College in Connecticut, and the author of “Arab Spring, Libyan Winter.”

American current bi-party system is bankrupt

It was Thucydides who warned us about slick tongued orators when he criticized the weakness and dangers of Democracy!

Obama and his administration have done, or achieved, none of the things which they claim to have done in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Palestine or at home in the U.S.

Many of the problems may have been inherited from the policies and tactics of the bent, crooked, broken and hijacked eight-year Administration of George Bush, but nothing has really changed. In fact, his pursuit of these very same methods and tactics as “resolutions” to these problems seems to have simply added more fuel to these disastrous fires.

Putin Wins a Second Match

Has Russia’s Vladimir Putin pulled Barack Obama’s chestnuts out of the fire for a second time?

Will the shaky cease-fire in Ukraine that began this weekend hold up and end a conflict that was threatening a nuclear war between the United States and Russia?

The answer to the first question is yes. Remember back in 2013 when the Obama White House was threatening to attack Syria over allegations it was using poison gas?As it turned out, the UN found it was the US-backed Syrian rebels who were likely to have used chemical weapons rather than the Damascus regime.

Noble Peace Prize Winner Obama and his lady strategists almost got the US into a war in Syria that could have led to direct clashes with Russia, which was backing the Damascus government.Along came that unlikely man of peace, Russia’s Vlad Putin, who charted a diplomatic course out of the Syria mess for the bumbling White House which had talked itself into corner.

Hailed as a Model for Successful Intervention, Libya Proves to be the Exact Opposite

Once Gadaffi was brutally killed by a mob, advocates of intervention threw a giddy party for themselves, celebrating their own rightness and righteousness and declaring Libya a model for future western interventions. Upon Gadaffi’s fleeing, The New York Times, which editorially supported the war, published a front-page article declaring: “U.S. Tactics in Libya May be a Model for Other Efforts.”

Leading war advocates such as Anne-Marie Slaughter and Nick Kristof celebrated themselves as humanitarian visionaries and chided war opponents for being blinkered and overly cynical about the virtues of American force. British and French leaders descended upon Libya to strut around like some sort of conquering heroes, while American and Canadian officials held pompous war victory ceremonies. Hillary Clinton was downright sociopathic, gloating and cackling in an interview when told about Gadaffi’s death by mob: “We came, we saw, he died.”

Hailed as a Model for Successful Intervention, Libya Proves to be the Exact Opposite

When Saddam Hussein was captured in 2003 by U.S. forces, Iraq War advocates boastfully celebrated the event as proof that they were right and used it to mock war opponents (Joe Lieberman and John Kerry, for instance, gleefully exploited the event to demand that Howard Dean admit his war opposition was wrong). When Muammar Gaddafi was forced by NATO bombing in August, 2011 to flee Tripoli, advocates of U.S. intervention played the same game (ThinkProgress gleefully exploited the occasion to try to shame those who objected to the illegality of Obama’s waging the war even after Congress voted against its authorization: as though Gadaffi’s fleeing could render legal Obama’s plainly illegal intervention).

Chapel Hill Shooting and the ‘New Atheist’ Neocons

Beware the neocon ‘New Atheists.’ A terrible crime has happened in North Carolina – three young Muslim university students were shot dead ‘execution-style’ in their Chapel Hill apartment on Tuesday.

Police have arrested and charged 46-year-old Craig Stephen Hicks with the brutal murders, a man known for posting anti-religion comments online and whose Facebook page is riddled with pictures of and quotes from his ‘New Atheist’ heroes Richard Dawkins and Bill Maher.

The cops are conveniently saying that the Muslim students were not targeted because of their faith, but rather a “parking dispute.” How bizarre.

“It was execution style, a bullet in every head,” the father of the two deceased girls told the media, insisting that “this was not a dispute over a parking space, this was a hate crime.”

Why We Need the International Criminal Court

Since law is one of the foundations of civilization, shouldn't we make sure that no one stands above it.

The adage that no one should be above the law is of particular importance here. The problem is that there are innumerable cases where some individual or group holds sufficient political power to defy the rule of law.

This issue has not yet been fully confronted because, until very recently, no one has actually brought the crimes of individuals representing large and powerful states, or their allies, to the attention of the Court.

How do you arrest the indicted person if he is Henry Kissinger, George W. Bush or any number of Israeli military and civilian leaders, all of whom may well warrant the Court’s attention.

However, this is about to change due to the decision of the Palestinian National Authority to join the ICC. This has resulted in an ICC preliminary investigation of Israeli war crimes during the 2014 invasion of the Gaza Strip.

Good Morning America, Bibi is Coming to Town

“Do not seek the treasure. Its an ambush.”
The Israeli Prime Minister will be greeted by cheers and applause from those members of Congress who will be in attendance. Some members will not attend. How many will skip the event could depend on voters who demand their absence.

In attendance, assuming the Prime Minister actually goes through with what has become a highly controversial and increasingly unpopular speech.

Even strong pro-Israel outlets like Fox News, and Liberal Zionist media outlets like MSNBC, are urging Netanyahu to cancel his March 3 moment in the world media spotlight.

The decision by members of Congress to attend, or not to attend, Netanyahu’s speech March 3 is a test of loyalty for members, to their elected president or to the Sheldon Adelson-controlled prime minister of Israel.That is a political decision.It is also a personal moral decision.

Tracking the roots of Zionism and imperial russophobia

In order to understand the relationship between the Empire, Zionism and Western russophobia, we must go back to the late 19th century, and focus in particular on British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.

US-Israel and Armageddon

The nature of the sickness that underpins Zionism is a prime cause for a chaotic world. Hastening a nuclear doom for the glory of the Third Temple is psychotic, unwarranted and certainly un-American.

All those ‘faithfully challenged’ love their celebrated dispensationalist saint. But what about the remaining secular nut cases that run to the defense of that despotic state that claims to be a democracy? “O, woe is me, To have seen what I have seen, see what I see!” – yes we are all Hamlets when it comes to being exploited by the propagandists of perdition.

Madame Merkel: Between Munich, Moscow, Washington and Minsk — Jet-setting for Peace or Propaganda?

Madame Merkel attended on 6 February the 6-7 February NATO security Conference in Munich. Then, not listening to what Mr. Lavrov had to say to the conference on 7 February, she jetted with ‘General’ (as in Napoleon) Hollande of France to Moscow to meet ‘urgently’ with Mr. Putin on 7 February to initiate new peace / truce talks on Ukraine. Keeping the results largely under wraps, not to divulge to her own people or the rest of Europe, she stopped briefly over in Germany where she finally talked to Sergei Lavrov, before jetting on to emperor Obama for reporting and consulting.

Madame Merkel, regardless of the tenor and contents of your discussion in Washington, it is up to you, whether you want to lead Europe out of her conundrum – of her wavering between prosperity and submission – between war and peace

Israel’s insolence to Obama may rebound on it

The crisis has been building for six years. Barack Obama arrived at the White House just as Israel elected one of the most right-wing governments in its history, led by Benjamin Netanyahu. At their first meeting Mr Obama reportedly told his Israeli counterpart “not one more brick”.

Mr Netanyahu soon defied the president, and has been doing so ever since.

By taking on the president, Mr Netanyahu risks smashing Washington’s political consensus on Israel and exposing the American public for the first time to a debate about whether Israeli interests coincide with US ones.

The very rift he is fostering with Mr Obama is likely to rebound on him strategically too. He is giving Tehran every incentive to sign an accord with the western powers, if only to deepen the fracture between Israel and Washington.

Another dubious Islamic State video, more foreign policy folly

The world has been sleepwalked into a handful of senseless wars in the Middle East that have served no other purpose than to fatten the pockets of Western war profiteers and strengthen the Israeli regime’s position in the region.

And we can’t seem to find a way off this deadly trajectory towards doom.

The slickly made video begs a few questions. Who produces IS’s videos for them? Rag-­tag militants simply don’t have the technical prowess required for IS’s latest execution flick. Where do they get the money to finance these projects? How do they have time to make such videos amidst an insurgency against the Syrian regime? And how do they shoot these highly choreographed videos while they allegedly dodge Western coalition airstrikes?

LEAKED EVIDENCE: Sen. John McCain Involved In Major Islamic Conspiracy To Establish Islamic State

Recently revealed conversations between the Pentagon and the Gadhafi regime in 2011 show that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was serving the Muslim Brotherhood by pushing a false narrative to justify the removal of Muammar Gadhafi, as Shoebat.com has reported. With the help of corroborating evidence, we’re closer to proving that Republican Senator John McCain was likely just as invested in facilitating the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya as Hillary was. Before getting to the evidence that implicates McCain, let’s work backward from the Benghazi attacks.

You can listen to tapes of discussions between Pentagon staffers, former Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), and the Qaddafi regime for yourself.

This news also validates the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) 2014 interim report, which exposed that Muammar Qaddafi had offered truce talks and a possible peaceful abdication to the United States, which Washington turned down.

“[The article] also makes it clear that the Benghazi investigation needs to be broadened to answer the question: ‘Why did America bomb Libya in the first place?’” commented Rear Admiral Chuck Kubic (Ret.), a key source for the CCB’s interim report who was also quoted by the Times.

Trey Gowdy's secret tapes focus on Hillary's Islamic adventure

The recently formed ad hoc House of Representatives committee tasked with investigating the 2012 Benghazi, Libya, terrorist attack on an American consulate plans to listen and study secretly recorded tapes that some claim may answer nagging questions regarding presidential contender and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's role in the 2011 U.S. military intervention in Libya, according to Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, on Tuesday. The U.S. intervention is credited with helping Libyan rebels overthrow the tyrant Muammar Gaddafi.
While the media continues to ignore her "missteps and gaffs," a large number of Americans believe Clinton is a deceitful, power hungry political animal.

Unfortunately, the removal and killing of Gaddafi led to political chaos and Islamic terrorism perpetrated by al-Qaida affiliated terrorists and tribal militias, with the mere semblance of a national government weakened by a lack of public support and resources.

Leaked Audio Proves 2011 Libya War Rationale a Fraud

Truth is the first casualty in war, but in Libya it’s resurrecting. There was never any evidence to support President Obama’s and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s claims to oust the Muammar Gaddafi government in Libya.

Just released audio tapes reveal the hurry to war was all propaganda. Pentagon and Congressional personnel privy to reality worked in secret to prevent the U.S. intervention in Libya that lasted over seven months.

Washington’s Not-So-Faulty Logic: Back al Qaeda-Linked Rebels in Libya, Crush Non-al-Qaeda-linked Rebels in Ukraine

Washington Times is reporting on new revelations about Obama/Clinton’s illegal decision to kill people in Libya.

US intelligence, the top human rights groups, and scholars say Obama/Clinton’s claims of an impending “genocide” in Libya, the pretext for US planting and detonation of explosives in Libya, were unfounded.

The Times notes that the false claims were partially “rooted in Gadhafi’s Feb. 22, 2011, speech in which he pledged to “sanitize Libya an inch at a time” and “clear them of these rats.”

However:

A month later, Gadhafi delivered another speech in which he made it clear that only those standing against him with arms would face reprisal.

Secret Benghazi report reveals Hillary’s Libya war push armed al Qaeda-tied terrorists

Libyan officials were deeply concerned in 2011, as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was trying to remove Moammar Gadhafi from power, that weapons were being funneled to NATO-backed rebels with ties to al Qaeda, fearing that well-armed insurgents could create a safe haven for terrorists, according to secret intelligence reports obtained by The Washington Times.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘WMD’ moment: U.S. intelligence saw false narrative in Libya

The intelligence community gathered no specific evidence of an impending genocide in Libya in spring 2011, undercutting Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s primary argument for using the U.S. military to remove Col. Moammar Gadhafi from power, an event that has left his country in chaos, according to officials with direct knowledge of the dispute.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US invaded Libya because Gaddafi shut down the private central bank, created a state central bank and a value-based currency called the Gold Dinar. Then he announced that Libya's oil was for sale, but only for the Gold Dinar. That was a direct threat to the hegemony of the US dollar/petrodollar.

A recent report showed that under both Obama and Hillary Clinton, the U.S. government switched sides and went from opposing Al-Qaeda to supporting them. The “reason” is because they wanted Al-Qaeda to help them depose of then Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi.

Libya terror suspect Anas al-Liby dies before US trial

An alleged al-Qaeda leader has died just days before going on trial in New York over the 1998 US embassy attacks in Africa.

Abu Anas al-Liby, 50, died in hospital on Friday, his wife and lawyers say. He is reported to have had liver cancer.

Mr Liby was seized in a US raid in Tripoli in October 2013.

He was to stand trial on 12 January over the 1998 embassy attacks, which killed more than 220 people in Kenya and Tanzania.

Mr Liby, whose real name was Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, previously pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges.

His wife, Um Abdullah, accused the US government on Saturday of "kidnapping, mistreating and killing an innocent man," according to the Associated Press news agency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a person who no longer has the luxury of believing in "coincidence, I find the timing of this man's death...interesting.

Analysts have speculated whether the slump in oil prices would be reversed by an uptick in demand, a buying spree by investors in cheap commodities, or high-cost producers being forced out of the market. But it may be a sudden burst of violence in Libya that provides the spark to oil prices that the markets have been looking for.

Libya has experienced several waves of violence in recent years, violence that has caused periodic disruptions in Libya’s oil sector.

“It started as a normal day — then we heard the sound of shelling and rockets,” said the young mother. “Without warning, they hit our houses. We fled with just the clothes we were wearing.”

Zeina is now crammed together with seven other people in a cinderblock outhouse that is part of Tripoli’s zoo. They are just a handful of the more than 400,000 people who are currently displaced inside Libya, which is witnessing its worst crisis since the 2011 NATO-backed revolt that toppled dictator Muammar Qaddafi.

According to the official reports, the Libyan air force, controlled by Thinni, hit several targets in the Libyan Dawn controlled city of Misrata, including a sea port, an air force academy near the airfield and a steel mill, the largest in the country, in an attempt to disrupt the town’s economic viability. Representatives for Libyan Dawn confirmed the airstrikes, claiming no immediate victims or damage.

When asked about questions she wanted to see answered by the Benghazi special committee, she said that she had a new list of questions which she intends on publishing. However, she says that the conflict regarding what Obama did that night still remains and the photos might just give the story… that is unless, as usual, the Obama White House is photoshopping them.

The West is silent as Libya falls into the abyss

Remember the time when Libya was being held up by the American, British, French and Qatari governments as a striking example of benign and successful foreign intervention? It is worth looking again at film of David Cameron grandstanding as liberator in Benghazi in September 2011 as he applauds the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi and tells the crowd that "your city was an example to the world as you threw off a dictator and chose freedom".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is going on in Libya is a repeat of what happened in Iran in 1979 and currently in Iraq. The people of the nation are taking it back from the US puppet rulers. But, the US Government is having a tough time selling the invasion of Syria to the war weary American people, let alone a THIRD invasion of Iraq. Adding a second invasion of Libya is likely to result in a collective, "Oh come ON now" from the populace, followed by a complete collapse of what little public support for the Federal Government still exists.

9/11 Was NATO’s License to Expand Globally

The 9/11 attacks on the United States undoubtedly benefited a number of actors, including the American military-intelligence complex, Israel, and most definitely, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Cold War-era, the area of responsibility for which had long been confined to Europe and North America, used the provisions of Article 5 of the NATO Charter – which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all – to extend NATO’s power deep into Eurasia, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

After engaging in out-of-area invasions and occupations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, and Syria and, again in Iraq, against the «Islamic State,» the «North Atlantic» military bloc has transformed itself from a Cold War defensive alliance into a global offensive axis of nations that acts with or without United Nations authorization.

Libya: From Africa’s Richest State Under Gaddafi, to Failed State After NATO Intervention

This week marks the three-year anniversary of the Western-backed assassination of Libya’s former president, Muammar Gaddafi, and the fall of one of Africa’s greatest nations.

In 1967 Colonel Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa; however, by the time he was assassinated, Gaddafi had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy on the continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands.

After NATO’s intervention in 2011, Libya is now a failed state and its economy is in shambles. As the government’s control slips through their fingers and into to the militia fighters’ hands, oil production has all but stopped.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was 16, my parents bought me a nice bicycle with which to ride to school. Brand new, shiny, lots of chrome, and all the gadgets. Without intending to I had what was clearly the nicest bike in the neighborhood. So, some other kids grabbed the bike one day and smashed it up, and while I was able to repair it, the remaining dents and scratches made it appear inferior to the bikes ridden by those other boys. Now, you expect that sort of behavior from 16 year old boys, but it appears the governments of the US and EU, unable to actually make their nations great while in slavery to the private central banks, have hit on the idea of stealing other peoples' nations and smashing them up, in order to go on claiming that they, the US and EU, are the greatest nations remaining on Earth. That does not say very much about the governments we allow to rule us.

An Egyptian Intervention in Libya

Two Egyptian officials claimed the country’s warplanes had begun bombing positions in Benghazi, the second-largest city in neighboring Libya, on Wednesday, in an attempt to wrest control of the city from the Ansar-al-Sharia Islamist militia. The mission, which will be led by Libyan pilots, marks the highest-profile collaboration between the two North African countries, both of which are beset by instability, since they experienced simultaneous Arab Spring revolutions in 2011. The Egyptian government has officially denied the news.

According to the Associated Press, the mission is slated to last three to six months and will “eventually involve Libyan ground troops recently trained by Egyptian forces.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The instability in Libya is directly tied to the US/NATO-led overthrow of Gaddafi, and the return to a private central bank.

The Libyan people are tired of foreign interventionism to control who gets its oil, and in what denomination that oil is sold.

US Air Raids: The Unlearned Lesson of Libya

In 2011 NATO air strikes against Libya that were carried out under the pretext of the urgent need of protecting civilians from a “violent dictator“, cleared the road to power for radical militants. Three years ago, once Muammar Gaddafi had been brutally murdered in October 2011, these militants took over Libya by filling the vacuum created by foreign intervention. From that moment on the country had been plunged deeper into bloodshed created by the former revolutionaries as they cut each other’s throats in a fight for rich oil-producing regions.

So far, the only thing US military intervention has done in Iraq, Libya, and (soon) Syria, is to make the situation worse.

Then-Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell said he walked in uninvited to the Sunday afternoon scene a month after the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist strike to find several boxes of papers — and immediately asked an office director what was happening.

“She told me, ‘Ray, we are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the seventh floor in a bad light,’” Maxwell told The Daily Signal, the news outlet for the conservative Heritage Foundation.

Now after Gaddafi was overthrown, the Libyan armories were looted, and massive quantities of weapons were sent by the Libyan rebels to Syria.

The times of London reported on the arrival of the shipment on September 14th, 2012. (Secondary confirmation in this NYT article) This was just three days after Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed by the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi. Chris Stevens had served as the U.S. government's liaison to the Libyan rebels since April of 2011.

Libya has already formed a new government, mostly from the people removed from office during the US invasion. The parliament-in-a-ferry is a government in name only, waiting for the US to invade and restore them to power. The problem is that the US Government is already having a hard time selling a third invasion of Iraq to the American people, and adding a second invasion of Libya just ahead of the mid-term elections could cost the incumbents dearly!

The establishment of the Islamic State of Libya (ISL) is imminent

The “paper” government and the “paper” assembly are now squatting the coastal town Tobrouk, known for its airbase, with no power, no future prospects and no money. They have gone that far east for two basic reasons: to be close to Egypt to seek help to reconquer the country, but that seems to be rather a wishful thinking, and if all fails, find shelter in this country. But by being territorially in Libya, they are, quite rightly, clinging to the elusive hope that the West might come to their rescue and restore their legitimacy by the use of force. They might well do that because Libya is an oil-rich country and the Islamists cannot be entrusted with it, for obvious reasns. But, on the other hand, the West is not ready to commit troops to a land-based risky operation, that could ultimately be costly in human life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government has no one but itself to blame for the current circumstances in Libya but itself.

By taking out Gaddafi in a military coup, and installing a puppet regime, much to the dislike and disgust of the Libyan people, the US government made it possible to create a vacuum where ISL could flourish; the same thing can be said of the US's invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Stupidity, on the part of our national leadership, should be painful.

The American people will NOT buy off on another invasion of Iraq, Libya, or an invasion of Syria.

And the invasion of Syria would be about taking out a friend to the Iranian government so that, if negotiations on Iran's nuclear program break down (which Israel is working very diligently to have happen), Iran can be invaded for yet another regime change.

However, Iran has a very close relationship with Russia. Invading Iran may well mean Russian military involvement, on Iran's side, in such a military misadventure.

One of the classic definitions of insanity is to do the same thing, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome; the US government and military appear to be hell-bent on installing puppet regimes around the world, yet are puzzled, and shocked, when the people of those countries want to take their countries back.

New Book Claims Top CIA Officer In Benghazi Told Commandos To 'Stand Down' During Attack

A new book titled "13 Hours" set for release on Sep. 9 cites five commandos who were guarding the CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya with an explosive claim that the CIA Station Chief told them to "stand down" from any rescue attempt, The New York Times reports.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:
