Al Qaeda’s plan for Libya Highlighted in Congressional Report
By THOMAS JOSCELYN
An unclassified report published in August highlights al Qaeda’sstrategy for building a fully operational network in Libya. The report (“Al Qaeda in Libya: A Profile”) was prepared by the federal research division of the Library of Congress (LOC) under an agreement with the Defense Department’s Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office.
Al Qaeda’s senior leadership (AQSL) in Pakistan has overseen the effort. AQSL “issued strategic guidance to followers in Libya and elsewhere to take advantage of the Libyan rebellion,” the report reads. AQSL ordered its followers to “gather weapons,” “establish training camps,” “build a network in secret,” “establish an Islamic state,” and “institute sharia”law in Libya.
Each part of this strategy is being implemented, and al Qaeda’s plan has advanced to the final stages. The three conceptual phases of an al Qaeda affiliate’s development are outlined in a chart prepared by the US military and shown here.
The chart shows that, according to the US military, al Qaeda’s operatives in Libya have already completed many of the tasks set forth by AQSL.
“AQSL in Pakistan dispatched trusted senior operatives as emissaries and leaders who could supervise building a network,” the report notes. They have been successful in establishing “a core network in Libya,” but they still act clandestinely and refrain from using the al Qaeda name.
The report finds that al Qaeda “will likely continue to mask its presence under the umbrella of the Libyan Salafist movement,with which it shares a radical ideology and a general intent to implement sharia in Libya and elsewhere.”
Senior terrorists and others involved in effort
Al Qaeda’s emir, Ayman al Zawahiri, has overseen the effort to establish a robust presence in Libya. Other senior al Qaeda operatives in Pakistan have also been involved. Abu Yahya al Liba and Atiyah Abd al Rahman, two top al Qaeda operatives who have been killed in drone strikes, helped guide the project prior to their demise. Some al Qaeda operatives have been tasked with taking over, or forming, katibas – or fighting battalions. Others oversee al Qaeda’s project and coordinate with senior leaders operating elsewhere.
The following al Qaeda operatives in Libya, as well as other suspected al Qaeda-affiliated individuals, are identified by name in the report:
Abu Anas al Libi is described as the “builder of al Qaeda’s network in Libya.” Other names listed for him include ‘Abd al Hamid al Ruqhay, Anas a Suba, and Nazih ‘Abd al Hamid al Rughi.Abu Anas was raised in Tripoli and moved to Afghanistan in the late 1980s, then followed al Qaeda to Sudan in the 1990s. He is “believed to have met Osama bin Laden.” In the late 1990s, Abu Anas “was granted asylum in Britain…but fled that country in 1999 to avoid arrest when he was convicted by an American court in relation to the 1998 terrorist attacks against US embassies in Nairobi and Dar es-Salaam.” He is an “al Qaeda-trained intelligence specialist” and “well trained in operational security.”
Abu Anas is “most likely involved in al Qaeda strategic planning and coordination between AQSL and Libyan Islamist militias who adhere to al Qaeda’s ideology.” Abu Anas and his fellow al Qaeda operatives “have been conducting consultations with AQSL in Afghanistan and Pakistan about announcing the presence of a branch of the organization that will be led by returnees from Iraq, Yemen, and Afghanistan, and by leading figures from the former LIFG.”(The LIFG refers to the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, an al Qaeda-linked jihadist group formed in Libya in the 1990s.)
The report says that “intense communications” from AQSL in Pakistan are passed through Abu Anas in Libya.
Abd al Baset Azzouz was sent to Libya by Zawahiri and has been close to al Qaeda’s leader “since 1980 and first visited Afghanistan in the 1990s to join the mujahedin fight against the Soviet occupation.” Azzouz “has been operating at least one training center” and “sent some of his estimated 300 men to Brega to make contact with other militant Islamist groups farther west.”
Sufyan ben Qumu is a former Guantanamo detainee who has been tasked with training militia fighters. According to other published accounts, Qumu leads a brigade named Ansar al Sharia, but that is also the name of al Qaeda’s umbrella organization in Libya. Qumu was transferred from Guantanamo to Libya in 2007 and set free in 2010 as part of a general amnesty deal the Qaddafi government granted Islamists and jihadists.
Qumu has denied any links to al Qaeda in interviews with the press. However, the authors of “Al Qaeda in Libya” say the Ansar al Sharia battalion led by Qumu “has increasingly embodied al Qaeda’s presence in Libya, as indicated by its active social-media propaganda, extremist discourse, and hatred of the West, especially the United States.”Qumu has led a campaign of targeted assassinations, including against those opposed to al Qaeda.
Hafiz al-’Aghuri (aka Hayaka Alla) is “a close ally of Wisam Ben Hamid,” and co-leader of Katiba Dir’ Libya. Sitting in front of an al Qaeda flag, al-’Aghuri recorded a video in which he rebutted the Libyan government’s claim that his battalion is insignificant, saying that “Dir’ Libya has secured the southeast border with Chad and Egypt without asking anything from the government.”
Wisam Ben Hamid ”is a young rebel leader who allegedly fought in Iraq.” Two brigades, Katiba al-A’hrar Libya and Katiba Dir’ Libya, are reportedly under his control and both of them are “involved in postrevolutionary militia fighting in the Qaddafi stronghold Sirt and in Kufra in southeast Libya.” Ben Hamid “has been cited as one of the possible leaders of al Qaeda in Libya even though it is unlikely, given his prominence in the media, which contradicts AQSL’s usual penchant for secrecy.”
Abu Jandal al Libi is described as an al Qaeda “adherent” and “Libyan rebel.” Not much is known about Abu Jandal, but he sought guidance from al Qaeda’s legal forum. An al Qaeda theorist known as Abou Mouslim al Djazairi responded to Abu Jandal’s query, issuing a fatwa that he and his allies should secretly “form an organization bringing together sincere and loyal people” and should split from the Transitional National Council, which has “embroiled itself as well as all Libya in the swamp of servitude to the Crusaders.”
Ahmad Abu al Rashid (real name Nauri Husayn) fought in Yemen but has returned to Libya, via Somalia and Sudan. He is described as one of a group of “jihadist Salafists upholding al Qaeda ideology in Libya.” Jihadists “such as Abu al Rashid indeed control militias composed of hundreds of people,” the report reads. Abu al Rashid is among the “returnees from Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen, as well as elements of the former LIFG” who are “preparing to announce their presence after the conclusion of consultations with AQSL.”
Ansar al Sharia and the militias
The leaders listed above likely constitute a small fraction of al Qaeda’s overall presence in Libya. Citing media reports, the authors of “Al Qaeda in Libya” note that “a few hundred al Qaeda members must currently be operating in Libya.” The report continues by observing that “most of them are likely connected with three katibas – Ansar al-Sharia in Darnah, al-A’hrar Libya in Sirt, and Dir’ Libya in Kufra.”
These three katibas are just the most conspicuous, however, because of “their radical rhetoric and allegiance to the black flag, which symbolizes the commitment to al Qaeda-type militant jihad.”
In addition, the name Ansar al Sharia is used by multiple groups inside Libya. It is not just the name of individual battalions, but also may be al Qaeda’s new overall brand in Libya. Ansar al Sharia is being used by al Qaeda in Yemen, Tunisia and elsewhere to rebrand itself as an organization that represents true Islamic law. For example, the emir of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Nasir al Wuhayshi, is also the emir of Ansar al Sharia Yemen.
The various Ansar al Sharia branches have their own social media sites,including in some cases Facebook pages. Their digital presences, while containing some differences, are also eerily similar. Much of the content and branding is the same, and they all praise senior al Qaeda leaders.
The three battalions identified in the report as most likely affiliated with al Qaeda are just the “tip of the iceberg.” In June 2012, Ansar al Sharia “staged a large-scale rally and military show of force involving dozens of military vehicles, with Islamists wearing the Afghan mujahidin’s traditional outfit.” The rally included “a parade in which some 30 battalions” from various Libyan towns participated “in the first meeting in support of sharia in Benghazi.”
In all, 15 militias attended the Ansar al Sharia rally. It is not clear how many are firmly within al Qaeda’s orbit, allied with the group, or otherwise positioned. Even if some of these militias are not staunchly allied with al Qaeda currently, they may cooperate or be co-opted by the group in the future.
“Al Qaeda in Libya” contains graphic evidence that al Qaeda-affiliated battalions have already acquired heavy armaments, including mobile rocket launchers and self-propelled antiaircraft guns. As al Qaeda’s clandestine network continues to acquire arms, the group will have more firepower with which it can target any dissenters, as well as the shaky Libyan government. (***** these were given by the West and NATO so why are they complaining now???? It was America, England, France and Qatar who was supplying the rebels even the Al Qaeda brats which belong to CIA, MI6 and Mossad everything underlined in red is with America’s blessing so why fight terror when they produce terror? Qaddafi was an ANGEL infront of these TERRORISTS, TYRANTS WHO THINK THAT THEY BRING DEMOCRACY BUT THEY DON’T.)
(****America is doing)Al Qaeda is doing its best to destabilize the new post-Qaddafi government, seeing an opening to inculcate its radical ideology and organization during a time of uncertain transition. Al Qaeda is also exploiting tribal and ethnic conflicts, using them to “build alliances and support, especially in the south, where Arab tribes are fighting the Tubu (Tebu) African minority that straddles the Libya-Chad border.” One of the al Qaeda-connected battalions, Dir’ Libya, is fighting alongside the Arab tribes against the Tubu.
Connections to other al Qaeda franchises
Al Qaeda’s growing presence in Libya is not self-contained, but instead part of an international network. Al Qaeda operatives in Libya work with their counterparts in al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), a known al Qaeda affiliate, and other parties throughout North Africa and the Middle East.
Al Qaeda’s “clandestine network in Libya will probably continue to provide critical support to AQIM,” the report reads, “especially with regard to arms procurement and safe passage of militants, which are essential to sustain AQIM’s war in northern Mali.”
The report’s authors warn that Libya “may already have become the favorite destination for would-be jihadists in Syria.” Recruits from north Africa and Europe “are increasingly crossing Libya’s borders on their way to Syria, probably with the blessing of the current Libyan government.” Libya has long been tied to the jihadist network in Syria, as many of the al Qaeda fighters who transited through Syria to fight the US-led coalition in Iraq came from eastern Libya.
Although al Qaeda did not bring the Arab Spring, the terrorist group is seeking to capitalize on it. Al Qaeda “has tried to exploit the ‘Arab Awakening’ in North Africa for its own purposes during the past year,” the report reads.
A clandestine network in Libya is just part of AQSL’s plan.
Libya terrorized by more than 200 thousand invader mercenaries working for NATO and U.S. colonialist
The UN envoy to Libya denounces what everyone already knew: 200,000 mercenaries and international terrorists under the protection of NATO and the U.S. have taken over Libya ..equivalent to the entire British army .. Why? And who sent them there?
Two years after the invasion of NATO militias continue to terrorize Libya
The assassination of Gaddafi was ordered by U.S. and NATO must not go unpunished
Libya’s future looks dismal as the focus of media attention is directed elsewhere. A session of Parliament had to start ravaged by militants, ‘ethnic cleansing’ in the city of Tawergha population and murders are the result of the NATO intervention in what was the most modernized country in Africa.
The second anniversary of the NATO intervention in favor of the Libyan rebels and against Muammar Gaddafihas gone largely unnoticed by governments and foreign media in 2011 were so concerned about the safety and human rights of the Libyan people.This is not surprising since all Libyan rights is crumbling as a country and the Libyans are at the mercy of militias who exploit those who once claimed to protect.
A sample of the news coming from Libya in recent weeks gives us a glimpse of what is happening and it’s worth repeating because it totally ignores the foreign pressthat thronged the hotel before Benghazi and Tripoli. For example, last Sunday [31 March 2013] the chief of staff of Prime Minister Ali Zeidan disappeared in the capital and seems to have been hijacked. You may have been in retaliation for the government ministers statement that militias acting with impunity. That same day, a group of the militia broke into the Justice Department demanding the resignation of minister after accusing him of running an illegal jail.
All indications are that the situation is worsening rather than improving. The March 5 Libyan parliament met to discuss whether they should purge and disable the Libyans who had worked as officers during the 42 years Gaddafi was in power, which would also include people who were long dissidents and played a prominent role during the uprising against Gaddafi, but that decades ago had been ministers under the previous regime.
The protesters calling this purgeMPsforced to relocate for their safety to weather service offices outside Tripoli where they were attacked by armed men broke into the building as they disappeared the police who were guarding. Some of the MPs were held hostage 12 hours while others faced a shootout to escape.
Libya stench filled by
terrorists acts of NATO and U.S.
Outside control Tripoli armed men is even more absolute. This only draws attention from the rest of the world when there is an act of spectacular violence, including murder in Benghazi last September the U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens by jihadist militia. This was the only act of extreme violence in Libya that was widely covered by foreign media, but only because the GOP made him a political issue in the United States. But the ambassador and his guards are not the only foreigners who have been killed in Benghazi since the overthrow of Gaddafi. An Egyptian human rights group reported last month that an Egyptian named Ezzat Coptic Attalah Hakim had been tortured to death in the city after being arrested with 48 other traders in the market town of Benghazi.
CRUELTY WITH BLACK POPULATION
Few exceptions, human rights organizations are reporting on the situation in Libya in a more impartial and rigorous international media. Consistent with this, the organization Human Rights Watch (HRW), which are based in New York, produced a detailed report on ethnic cleansing in Tawergha city where 40,000 people forced to flee their homes, in addition to being subject to “arbitrary arrests, torture and killings.”
Misurata militias attacked the population, mostly black, for their support of Gaddafi. HRW used satellite imagery to document the destruction of Tawergha, most of which occurred since the end of the war in 2011 when they were destroyed were damaged and 1,370 locations. Fred Abrahams, special adviser at HRW, said the images confirm that “the looting, fires and demolitions were organized and aimed at the systematic destruction to prevent residents return.”
There is a strong contrast between this lack of interest and comprehensive coverage on Libya during the war. In the spring of 2011 I was reporting on the fighting around the city of Ajdabiya south of Benghazi. Therewas some phoney war atmosphere that did not appear in reports enthusiasts. I remember watching funny at the southern entrance of Ajdabiya how they positioned the TV cameras not to reveal that there were more journalists than insurgents.
Never saw a position defended by the rebelseven roadblocks between Ajdabiya and Benghazi if, two places that always depended on NATO air force for defense. Of course, there were brave rebel units and delivered, as were journalists who wrote about them, but without the support of NATO would quickly defeated the insurgents.
THE VOID OF GADDAFI
The fact that the overthrow of Gaddafi was achieved mainly thanks to foreign intervention has serious consequences for Libyans today. This means that although the insurgents claim and believe that his victory was due solely to his own work, have proved too weak to fill the vacuum left by Gaddafi’s version of Arab nationalism. Without this there is little Arab nationalism to counter Islamic fundamentalism and tribalism.
Does this matter? For many Libyan Gaddafi and his family discredited Libyan nationalism. Many of the disasters that happened to Iraq after 2003 they are starting to happen to other Arab states in different ways. As Iraqis are beginning to realize that the outward forms of democracy are not too important unless there is an agreement between the main political forces on the rules of the game that determines who holds power.
National self-determination should be the cornerstone of any new order. However, a problem of the revolts of the Arab Spring is that they are too dependent on foreign aid. But as happened in Iraq and Libya shows, foreign intervention is always interested. The revolutionaries of all regions seek help from outside powers opportunistic, but to achieve long-term success, must end as they can to this dependence. And they must build a strong and within the law because if I do a fresh batch of dictators are willing to replace them.
Criminal Imagene of “democracy” imposed by NATO and U.S. in Libya
the same as trying to impose on Syria, Venezuela, Iran and North Korea
The addition of tens of thousands of armed revolutionaries to the state payroll in Libya has helped swell the public sector salaries bill this year to $16bn – more than double the $6.6bn allocated in the 2010 budget under Muammer Gaddafi, the late dictator.
“The increase in salaries reflects partly the integration of revolutionaries in the armed forces and police,” Saddek Omar Elkaber, the Central Bank governor, said in an interview with the Financial Times. “We used to have 30 per cent unemployment and many people contributed to liberation and now they are looking for a job.”
State salaries account for 31 per cent of government spending in the budget approved last month by Libya’s General National Congress, the elected body which serves as a parliament. Spending on infrastructure has been allocated $15bn.
The International Monetary Fund said last month that the government could afford an “elevated level of current expenditures” in this transitional period. But it warned that the “high level of wages and subsidies and a weak governance framework might lead to an ‘entitlement mentality’”undermining fiscal sustainability in a country where the state is the biggest employer and the private sector miniscule.
Libya has managed to bring its oil production back to pre-revolution levels, but, as the IMF noted, the economy relies almost totally on hydrocarbons exports and remains vulnerable to fluctuations in the oil price.
Mr Kaber also said that part of the increase in the salary was the result of rises given to civil servants across the country after the Nato-backed revolution that toppled Col Gaddafi in 2011 following more than 40 years in power.
To buy loyalty during his final months in power, Col Gaddafi had increased salaries in the areas he controlled and after his fall salaries elsewhere in the country had to be brought in line, said Mr Kaber. In 2012, Libya budgeted $14bn for state salaries.
Armed groups have proliferated across Libya since the revolution, and the authorities have been struggling to bring them under control, even as they have also relied on them to maintain security. Militias have filled up the vacuum left by the crumbing of Mr Gaddafi’s hated police force and the break-up of his army.
Local observers and former government officials blame the decision to place ex-fighters on the government payroll for the mushrooming of local militias many of which engage in human rights abuses and often also criminal activity. Some, especially in the east of the country, also pursue extreme Islamist political agendas.
The addition of the militias to the roster of state employees compounds the problem of ghost workers who draw up salaries from multiple government departments which has long existed in Libya.
Mr Kaber said that a national database system which is currently being implemented by the government will address the problem.
“We have already allocated numbers to individuals, which they can now find out by sending a text message, and we will be cross-checking names with lists of employees in government departments,” said Mr Kaber. “This is our biggest achievement since the revolution. There are people who draw more than one salary. There are even children who are on payrolls.”
A labour ministry official quoted in the Libyan press on Sunday said that the new system should reduce the number of registered government employees from 1.25m to around 800,000.

Al Ahram Al Arabi reveals the most dangerous of al Qaeda network in Libya

Names and full details ..
The killing of Abu Yahya al-Libi, the second man after Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda in Pakistan last year, the unmanned aircraft was an American message to al-Qaeda in Libya, when penetrated in the joints of the state Libya after Gaddafi, this message by analysts called a response.
The killing of the U.S. ambassador in Benghazi months ago with three employees of the U.S. embassy to make matters ambiguous between the parties, if Washington was unable to prove link al-Qaeda in Libya this process in response to the killing of Abu Yahya, they launched a sharp attack on the regulations militant in North Africa during the war Mali.

And despite the fact that Libya’s new rulers are facing great difficulties in imposing their authority over a large number of armed militias that participated in the overthrow of Gaddafi in 2011, which did not give up arms to now, despite the passage of more than a year after the fall of the regime of Muammar Gaddafi. They Libya’s new leaders rely on those in the extension of state control and security.

On February 15 last, Dr. Awad Barasi Vice Chairman Minister said that after the appointment of the Minister of Awqaf government will open the door to dialogue with militants in Libya by clerics and imams inside and outside the country, there is no way to resolve only peaceful means and dialogue.
When Gaddafi’s regime fell, the Libyan rebels quickly set up new infrastructure, including a CENTRAL BANK and an OIL company. These moves — as well as lingering questions about the nature of the rebel movement — have fueled numerous conspiracy theories. But is there any grain of truth to claims that contradict the prevailing narrative?
It’s the end of Matt and Ben’s week on Libya, but the guys still have loads of stuff they didn’t get the chance to explore. Listen in to Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know and learn some quick facts about Libya’s oil reserves, some rumors that didn’t make it into the show, and some updates about their blogs.
More than two decades later, the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland is still officially considered the work of Libya. For decades Libya had been at odds with Western powers, and was often considered a rogue state that sponsored terrorism, so it was no surprise that Libya would be a prime suspect in this tragic event. However, a growing number of people argue that Libya wasn’t actually responsible — and that Western intelligence agencies know the real culprit, but kept the information secret. Why?
Unacceptable! The imam justifies pedophilia on the waves of the national radio. Sheikh Chems Eddine, imam and animator of a religious program on Ennahr TV satellite channel, skidded before yesterday on Jil FM waves in the show Derba which he was invited. The facilitator Brahim “Irban” presented him with a case which shocked many people: a 37-year-old man admitted to being in love with a girl of 12 years old! While the facilitator stressed the seriousness of the facts, Sheikh found it all possible evidence and … unimaginable. He first attributed this behavior to the “lack of disorder affecting the Algerian people.” After this “brilliant” explanation, it has gone from a scientific analysis.
Appreciate it rather this “work”. “There is a scientific explanation for this love between this man of 37 years and the 12-year-old girl. He has 37 years in the body, but in spirit he may be the same age as the girl, “he said, before sinking a little more ridiculous. “I talk like that because I’m sure he truly loves this girl and without a second thought with the objective marriage,” he said. And to remove any doubt as to his vision allowed retrograde, it drives the point home. “It may even be adult in his mind and that 12-year-old girl is mature. 12 years, but it’s a woman! If they both like. In this case, if his intentions are sincere, that is to say that he wants a wife, I do not see any constraint this type of marriage, “he argues without shame before remembering that our ancestors married at that age. Thus, it defies the law of the Republic which strictly prohibits child marriage. Contacted by telephone, the president of the Algerian network protection rights of the child Nada, Abderrahmane Arar says shocked even disgusted by such statements. “I have not heard this intervention. But if what you say is true, the two individuals (the imam and the pedophile, Editor’s note) should seek treatment, “he says. “It shocks me that such declarations can be made in the national media,” he plague.
“I replied, only 12 years, instead of a little girl is in school and not at home as a housewife. The international children’s rights are thankfully clear about this. So, 18 years old a girl should not end up as a mother, “he retorted angrily. “What parent would agree to marry their children at this age? And even if there are parents who agree, we, as an association, it will always be against this practice retrograde “ensures that advocate for children.
An “imam” until then respectable who preached the good word about Ennahar TV, has suddenly turned into a rapist laws of the Republic. While rape and kidnapping children are legion, this is a serious matter, especially at this time of distress that has won so many parents. What is the Ministry of Religious Affairs?
Shortly after the appointment of Abdul-Jalil in 2007, the other key player in today’s NTC – President Mahmoud Jibril – also got a government job in Libya. Jibril was appointed head of the National Planning Council and later Head of the National Economic Development Board, where, according to the U.S. cables, he too helped to “pave the way” for the privatization of Libya’s economy “and gave welcome to U.S. companies. “ By Dan Glazebroo
A violent rebellion broke out in Benghazi, Libya on February 15 of this year (2011). Six days later, Libyan Justice Minister Mustafa Abdul-Jalil resigned to set up an alternative government. On February 27, the National Transitional Council was established, and on March 5, the agency had declared the “sole representative of all Libya”,with Abdul-Jalil at its head.France recognized the NTC (National Transitional Council) as the legitimate government of Libya on March 10 and the UK offered a diplomatic post in Britain the same day.
Nine days later, the Council established a new Central Bank of Libya and the National Oil Company. In just a month since the start of the rebellion, Abdul-Jalil had positioned himself at the head not only of the rebels, but the new government in waiting, with control of Libyan resources and monetary policy and the blessing of the West.
On 17 March, NATO began its mass slaughter of Libyan soldiers in order to install his regime.
Clearly, seasoned imperial powers such as Britain, France and the U.S., would not commit to the enormous expense of an air campaign months to bring someone to power in a strategically important oil state, rich, unless they were already a tried and trusted asset. Then,
Who is exactly Abdul Jalil?
Mustafa Abdul-Jalil has been preparing the way for military and economic conquest of NATO
First, as head of the judiciary, he oversaw the release of hundreds of anti-Gaddafi fighters who went on to form the core of the insurgency.
Hundreds of members of the Libyan Islamist Fighting Group - including its founder Abdulhakim Belhadj, now military chief of Tripoli - were released in 2009 and 2010,and became the only indigenous units with training and combat experience of the rebellion.
In January 2010, Abdul-Jalil threatened to resign unless the prisoner release program was accelerated.On the second day of the insurgency, the last batch of 110 members of the Libyan Islamic Group Fighter were released,their work, Abdul-Jalil quit his role as Minister of Justice, shortly after setting the NTC.
Second, Abdul-Jalil was able to use his position to help prepare the legal framework for corporate takeover of Libyan resources that was enacted so swiftly after the creation of the NTC.
Although his official rolewas head of the judiciary, a large part of the dialogue between Abdul-Jalil and U.S. officials recorded in leaked U.S. diplomatic cables focused on privatization of the economy.
These reported Abdul-Jalil excited as “private sector participation”, and expressed his conviction that this would require regime change, or as the cables euphemistically put it, “international assistance”,to fully achieve its objective. The cables also reported ominous comments that Abdul-Jalil, the question of creating a “sound commercial legal environment”and improving relations between Libya and the U.S., “needed less talk and more action” .
Thirdly, Abdul-Jalil was able to arrange “under the radar”secret meetings between the pro-privatization Libyans in the “Development Program Commercial Law and U.S. officials, both in the U.S. and Libya.
The leaked U.S. cables praised his “willingness to allow his staff to communicate with embassy officials outside of official channels” and noted that “his organization seems to have a parallel track in securing visa approvals, bypassing the Protocol and the MFA [Ministry of Foreign Affairs]. “
Shortly after the appointment of Abdul-Jalil in 2007, the other key player in today’s NTC – President Mahmoud Jibril – also had a government job in Libya. Jibril was appointed head of the National Planning Council and later Head of the National Economic Development Board, where, according to the U.S. cables, he too helped to “pave the way” for the privatization of Libya’s economy “and gave welcome to U.S. companies. “
U.S. officials were positively enthusiastic about Jibril after their meeting in May 2009, concluding that “With a PhD in strategic planning from the University of Pittsburgh, Jibril is a serious interlocutor who” gets “the U.S. perspective” . Very revealing given the spate of ambassador defections that followed the Benghazi rebellion was the additional revelation that Jibril had been helping to facilitate training programs for six U.S. diplomats.
2007 also proved to be a crucial year for the other major player in NTC today, Head of Tripoli Military Council, Abdulhakim Belhadj. Belhadj was the founder of the Islamist Fighting Group of Libya, a subsidiary of Al-Qaeda launched an armed insurrection against the Libyan state in 1995 lasting two years.

His release from prison in Libya in March 2010, along with hundreds of other LIFG fighters, was the culmination of a process that began with an open letter published in November 2007 by Noman Benotman – one of many fighters from the group had received a safe haven in the UK since the uprising failed.
Born into an aristocratic family in Libya, Noman had a successful bakery business before falling into extremism and become a leader of the militant Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.
In late 1980 he travelled to Afghanistan to join the jihad against the Soviets. ”I was in the front line,” he said. ”I was shooting enemies and they fired me every day.”
Noman Bin Laden says: “You can talk to him, he is very humble. He can be very quiet, and be half an hour without speaking, listening and smiling. Such is Bin Laden.’s An intelligent, charismatic, a leader.
In 1994, he moved to Sudan, where he forged close ties with Bin Laden, Al-Zawahiri and other key members of al-Qaeda.
His letter of resignation to violence and, according to the London Times, “asked Al-Qaeda to give up all its operations in the Islamic world and the West, adding that Westerners were innocent and should not be attacked.” The letter to a process of dialogue between the LIFG and the Libyan government, and was followed two years later by an apology by the LIFG for violence against the government in the past, and a statement that ” reduction of jihad to fighting with the sword is an error and a mistake. “ Someone had suggested, obviously, for those drones and bombers B-52 would be much more effective.

So 2007 was the year that launched these three men on the way to his current role as proxy rulers in Libya NATO.
Benotman letter made NATO support a violent Al-Qaeda affiliate politically possible.
Abdul-Jalil appointment as Justice Minister smoothed over the fighters’ release, and prepared the legal framework for an economic takeover by Western corporations. Jibril appointment as Planning Minister prepared, at the micro level, the detail of how this acquisition would occur, and cultivates relationships with Western companies that were invited to spend.
So, why all this? Who pulls the strings?
For Benotman’s letter, this would have been a fairly simple matter of MI6 contacting him in London, where he lived, and put him in touch with a decent PR firm to help draft the letter that would politically possible to NATO was set as the Air Force LIFG.
As for the two government appointments,Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was ultimately responsible, but it was clearly their intention to reach these results. It was carrying out political and economic reforms driven by both genuine beliefand a naive desire to improve relations between his government and the West, did not realize that was inadvertently setting the stage for political and economic destruction of his country.
So the question is – who was acting in any other tips?
If it was, the most likely candidate is Mark Allen.
Mark Allen was the MI6 agent who had facilitated the “approach”of Libya with the West in 2003. Allen was no longer officially employed by MI6. In 2004, he had been fast-tracked by the British Cabinet Office, by passing usual security procedures, working for BP and in 2007, successfully concluded a massive oil deal £ 15 billion between BP and the Libyan government.
Could the appointment of Abdul-Jalil and Mahmoud Jibril have been part of this agreement?
In hindsight, given their subsequent roles, it seems highly likely that MI6 would have used whatever influence they could to maneuver willing accomplices into positions inside the Libyan government.
According to the Daily Mail, Allen was also actively involved in pressuring the UK government to support the prisoner release program. Of course, the tone of his article, as with the current media furore about MI6 complicity Belhadj in torture, all fit the general description of Gaddafi and the West had a great relationship until the rebellion started and forced to NATO to conduct a humanitarian intervention. Everything is designed to hide the reality that Libya under Gaddafi’s leadership was an obstacle to Western domination and subordination of Africa, and that MI6 has been plotting his removal ever since he came to power.

Bishop Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, Apostolic Vicar of Tripoli reported to Fides news agency that two religious communities have left the town of Cyrenaica after facing pressure from local fundamentalists. Bishop Martinelli stated that according to reports in east Libya the “situation is critical.”
”On February 20, large-scale demonstrations throughout Cyrenaica are expected so the Apostolic Vicar of Benghazi has been warned to leave the church from February 13th to take shelter” Bishop Martinelli told Fides.
“In past days, the Congregation of the Holy Family of Spole to who had been there for nearly 100 years were forced to abandon Derna, [along with] a Polish Salesian priest, who was abused by some fundamentalists. In Beida, another women’s religious community was forced to escape even if in this case, for internal reasons. In Barce, the Franciscan Sisters of the Child Jesus will leave their home in [the] coming days.”
Bishop Martinelli also said that while the situation in Tripoli has been relatively calm, the atmosphere in Cyrenaica has been extremely tense. “We regret having to reduce our activities in that area because we have built a very strong and beautiful relationship, made of testimony and friendship with the Libyan people, which unfortunately in recent times has been affected by the presence of fundamentalists,” Bishop Martinelli said.
“These do not represent the identity of the Libyan people but an expression of Libyan society today.”
The Libyan prelate stated that although the Church will take precautions, they will not abandon the Christians that remain in Libya. Bishop Martinelli said that two religious communities will remain in Benghazi, a small community in Tobruk, and a small community of Indian sisters will remain in Beida.
We remain impoverished, but full of hope that one day our communities will resume force,” Bishop Martinelli said.
