  • Benghazi: The Question Nobody is Asking

    The question which nobody is asking: Did Bork Obunga and his puppet-master George Soros generate an immense reservoir of hatred against Americans in Libya in 2011 by taking down what amounted to the best government in the Islammic world for motives amounting to little if anything other than pure greed, and THEN set the stage for a US ambassador to be tortured, raped, and then killed by sheer fecklessness with no meaningful response in the picture even eight months later? Ellen Brown noted (2011) that: Another anomaly involves the official justification for taking up arms against Libya. Supposedly it's...

    Startling revelations by French intelligence experts back David Shayler's alleged 'fantasy'about Gadaffi plot Martin Bright, home affairs editor Sunday November 10, 2002 The Observer British intelligence paid large sums of money to an al-Qaeda cell in Libya in a doomed attempt to assassinate Colonel Gadaffi in 1996 and thwarted early attempts to bring Osama bin Laden to justice. The latest claims of MI6 involvement with Libya's fearsome Islamic Fighting Group, which is connected to one of bin Laden's trusted lieutenants, will be embarrassing to the Government, which described similar claims by renegade MI5 officer David Shayler as 'pure fantasy'. The...

    Moammar Gadhafi emerged Tuesday morning on state-run television in a 40-second appearance to say that he is not in Venezuela as rumored, but in Tripoli. "I want to have some rest," the embattled Libyan leader told a reporter in front of what Libyan television said was his house as he pulled out an umbrella in the rain. "Because I was talking to the young man at Green Square, and I want to stay the night with them but then it started raining. I want to show them that I am in Tripoli, not in Venezuela. Don't believe those dogs in...

    It's good, occasionally, to take a trip down memory lane. It helps to put things into perspective. Hugo Chavez ought never to have been elected president. By rights, he ought to be growing old in a jail cell somewhere. Well, it's been seventeen years, maybe he’d be in a half-way house by now. As an army officer in 1992, he led a military revolt against the legal, constitutional government of Venezuela, and attempted to overthrow the democratically elected president of the time, Carlos Andres Perez. He gambled that once the shooting started, the minister of defense and the rest of...

    SNIPPET: "The fundamental truth is that Hamas' road to Iran runs through the international Muslim Brotherhood, and has for two decades. What is often missing in the discussion of the Muslim Brotherhood is that Hamas, according to its own founding charter, is an integral and armed part of the Ikwhan, not separate from it."

    Kadhafi son accused of beating woman AFP: 2/3/2005 PARIS, Feb 3 (AFP) - French police were Thursday investigating claims that a son of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi beat a woman in a Paris hotel earlier in the week. The Libyan embassy was asked to step in after scuffles in two separate luxury hotels, during which Hannibal Kadhafi allegedly produced a nine-millimetre handgun. After the first incident a woman was treated for bruises in hospital and later filed suit claiming to have been beaten by Kadhafi. Kadhafi, who is in his late 20s, left Paris for Copenhagen on Wednesday after being...

    So "brave" Muammar Gadafy has agreed on the importance of combating terrorism. A handshake with Tony Blair has sealed his re-entry into the international community, with contracts worth several hundred million pounds for Shell and BAE to follow. His compliance in opening up Libya to nuclear weapons inspectors has been spun as a major triumph in the "war on terror". The motives, however, are rather more cynical. Negotiations for a rehabilitated public image for Colonel Gadafy, linked to improved western access to Libyan oil, began to surface in August 2002 with the visit by the Foreign Office minister, Mike O'Brien,...

    The post-war Western alliance, as incarnated by the United Nations, is finished. Its future is as shaky as Ted Turner's stock portfolio. It needs life support. I can honestly say that I never thought I would see this.

Western intelligence sources said the deal was meant to bolster Libya's missile and weapons of mass destruction programs. Iran pledged to train Libya in missiles and the production and use of chemical weapons. Under the contract, Libya would obtain chemical warheads for its extended-range Scud-class missiles.

    Gadhafi: Change Israel to ‘Isratine’ Libyan leader proposes new democracy, rejects Saudi plan DUBAI, March 25 — Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi said Israel should be replaced by a democracy called “Isratine” where unarmed Israelis and Palestinians could live in peace. “If the Jews want peace, they should accept to live in peace and drop arms with their Palestinian brethren,” Gadhafi said in an interview with al-Jazeera satellite television. GADHAFI, WHO HAS rejected a Saudi Middle East peace bid, said it was “impossible” to create an independent Palestinian state along with Israel because “the Israelis would not accept to live within...
