NATO Leaders Guilty Under US Code of Providing Material Support to Terrorists
This article is by Tony Cartalucci posted in “Infowars” but before I post the article my question to the International community is WHO IS GOING TO PAY FOR ALL THE DAMAGES DONE BY NATO LEADERS AND THE TREE SUPER POWERS WHICH IS FRANCE, UNITED KINGDOM AND U.S.A. KNOWN TO ALL LIBYANS AS F.U.K.U.S?
Will these countries PAY compensation for the DESTRUCTION OF A WHOLE LIBYAN NATION? Will these countries together with NATO be HELD ACCOUNTABLE BY THE ICC? Will these countries compensate the MOTHERS that lost their infants? The Genocide of BLACK LIBYANS BY THE THOUSANDS? Will these countries compensate for GENERATIONS TO COME FOR THE 60.000 SORTIES WITH DEPLETED URANIUM BOMBED IN OUR COUNTRY, YOU HAVE ONLY TO TAKE A LOOK AT IRAQ’S DEFORMED CHILDREN? Will these countries compensate LIBYA’S INFRASTRUCTURE WHICH WAS DESTROYED BY THEIR GREED TO TOPPLE THE JAMAHIRYA GOVERNMENT AND MURDER IN COLD BLOOD THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY? When Will these countries pay for all the terror they have brought to smaller nations just because we want to be INDEPENDENT FROM THE ROTHSCHILD’S BANKING SYSTEM AND FROM THE CORPORATIONS WHO WANT TO STEAL OUR RESOURCES?
“Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life. To violate this paragraph, a person must have knowledge that the organization is a designated terrorist organization (as defined in subsection (g)(6)), that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorist activity (as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act), or that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorism (as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989).”-USC S 2339B. Providing material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations
In March 2011, the London Telegraph reported that Libya’s rebels had direct ties to Al Qaeda and that both leaders and fighters had spent time in both Iraq and Afghanistan combating US troops. The article titled, “Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links” featured Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, who had been captured by the US after fighting Americans in Afghanistan, returned to Libya, and released under a bargain for Hasidi and his Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) militants to abandon extremism and become productive members of society. Quite obviously, and with the US, UK, and NATO’s help, Hasidi and his men went back on this bargain and are now sowing murder and mayhem across Libya.
The New York Time more recently reported in an article titled, “Exiled Islamists Watch Rebellion Unfold at Home” that LIFG has “renounced Al Qaeda and are part of the mosaic of rebel fighters united under the umbrella of the Transitional National Council, the opposition leadership that the United States formally recognized as Libya’s legitimate government.” Of course, “renouncement” is exactly what these very same men did to be released from Qaddafi’s prisons in the first place before immediately taking up arms and laying waste to the nation. The New York Times also notes that exiled LIFG leader Abu Sohaib, currently being harbored in London, is unable to return to Libya because he and LIFG is a listed terrorist across the Middle East and throughout most of Europe, including the UK. His LIFG fighters are noted as having “combat experience in Iraq or Afghanistan,” and that they are part of the “social fabric of eastern Libya,” namely Benghazi, Tobruk, and Darnah in a region often referred to as Cyrenaica.
Image: Taken from a US West Point study, these graphs created by data obtained in Iraq clearly show that Libya’s eastern region, and the cities of Darnah and Benghazi in particular, provided by far more militants found fighting US troops in Iraq than any other nation, including Saudi Arabia. An apt summary of the report can be found at Tarpley.net. (click image to enlarge)
To get a clearer picture of just how much of the “social fabric of eastern Libya” these Al Qaeda LIFG fighters make up, a study from West Point US Military Academy indicates that this region produced more foreign fighters per capita found in Iraq than any other nation including Saudi Arabia. The vast majority of these fighters came from Darnah and Benghazi, the latter being the epicenter of the current Libyan rebellion. The report, explained in detail by geopolitical analyst Dr. Webster Tarpley, proves just how understated the New York Times article is in portraying these terrorists as “part of the social fabric of eastern Libya.” The facts prove quite clearly that terrorism is the social fabric of eastern Libya.
Just this week, the UK Independent provided its readership with a watered down headline that reads, “Rebel military chief says he was tortured by CIA.” The article indicates that the current rebel leader, Abdulhakim Belhaj (aka Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi) is in fact an LIFG founding member, with combat experience in Afghanistan against the Russians, omits that he was also involved in fighting US troops there in 2001, but does mention that he was held by the CIA, then the Libyan government before taking command of NATO-backed rebels in Libya. The Daily Beast reports in an article titled, “Libya’s Powerful Islamist Leader,” that Belhaj was in fact, face-to-face with Osama Bin Laden back in the 1980′s, and that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) is listed by both the U.S. State Department and the British Home Office as an international terrorist organization.
Image: A screenshot taken directly from the US State Department website showing the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) clearly listed as a foreign terrorist organization. This is important, as US Code prohibits providing material support to listed terrorist organizations. With revelations of Al Qaeda and LIFG fighters leading the Libyan rebellion with NATO-members’ full military, financial, and diplomatic support, attempts are being made to plea ignorance as to the true nature of the rebels. Listed below LIFG, is MEK, an Iraqi/Iranian group also being armed and supported by the US. (click on image to enlarge) ****(as we already know by the revelations of Clinton’s & Obama’s on Benghazigate scandal, the late Stevens was working with the leader of LIFG who is non other than Abdulhakim Belhaj together they moved arms – money – jihadists – sex slaves women and children from Libya to the border of Turkey – Syria were they were met by CIA people who then took over from there. I will let your imagination to make your own conclusions on who murdered the late Stevens it was not the Sharaia or Lifg they would not bite the hand that feeds them.)
With the corporate media’s help, Belhaj/al-Hasidi and his men are being portrayed as reformed terrorists despite the fact that they are still LIFG fighters and LIFG itself is still listed as an international terrorist organization. And while many will applaud the corporate media for coming forward with this information, it should be noted that Pepe Escobar first broke this story on Russia Today, and the US and British propaganda outlets have merely been forced to address the growing public awareness of who these “pro-democracy” rebels really are and what role the US and British governments have had in betraying their people by providing material support for men who literally killed US and UK troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan over the 10 year “War on Terror.”
According to US Code Section 2339A & 2339B, the leaders of NATO, along with the US, UK, and French governments, are clearly guilty of providing a listed terrorist organization with material support in the most egregious, overt case since the code was written. The staggering scale of training, arming, and providing air support for Libyan Islamic Fighting Group militants, listed by the US State Department itself as a terrorist organization, all done criminally under the guise of “international law” rubber stamped by the contrived UN and bolstered with support from the equally contrived International Criminal Court, may be partially why more people are unable to understand the scope of criminality involved in NATO’s intervention in Libya.
A similar situation exists within Iran, where another terrorist organization, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) are being covertly armed and aided in fighting the Iranian government. US policy makers are fully aware that organizations like LIFG and MEK have US blood on their hands. In fact, their only concern is how using such organizations will appear publicly and how such perceptions might threaten their agendas. In the Fortune 500-funded Brookings Institution report, “Which Path to Persia?” we can see clearly the thought process that goes on behind supporting terrorist organizations. Brookings’ only concern is how to remove MEK terrorists from the US State Department list (listed just below LIFG) so they can be supported more overtly in a Libyan-style military intervention.
“Potential Ethnic Proxies,” page 117-118 (page 130-131 of the PDF): ”Perhaps the most prominent (and certainly the most controversial) opposition group that has attracted attention as a potential U.S. proxy is the NCRI (National Council of Resistance of Iran), the political movement established by the MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalq). Critics believe the group to be undemocratic and unpopular, and indeed anti-American.
In contrast, the group’s champions contend that the movement’s long-standing opposition to the Iranian regime and record of successful attacks on and intelligence-gathering operations against the regime make it worthy of U.S. support. They also argue that the group is no longer anti-American and question the merit of earlier accusations. Raymond Tanter, one of the group’s supporters in the United States, contends that the MEK and the NCRI are allies for regime change in Tehran and also act as a useful proxy for gathering intelligence. The MEK’s greatest intelligence coup was the provision of intelligence in 2002 that led to the discovery of a secret site in Iran for enriching uranium.
Despite its defenders’ claims, the MEK remains on the U.S. government list of foreign terrorist organizations. In the 1970s, the group killed three U.S. officers and three civilian contractors in Iran. During the 1979-1980 hostage crisis, the group praised the decision to take America hostages and Elaine Sciolino reported that while group leaders publicly condemned the 9/11 attacks, within the group celebrations were widespread.
Undeniably, the group has conducted terrorist attacks–often excused by the MEK’s advocates because they are directed against the Iranian government. For example, in 1981, the group bombed the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party, which was then the clerical leadership’s main political organization, killing an estimated 70 senior officials. More recently, the group has claimed credit for over a dozen mortar attacks, assassinations, and other assaults on Iranian civilian and military targets between 1998 and 2001. At the very least, to work more closely with the group (at least in an overt manner), Washington would need to remove it from the list of foreign terrorist organizations.”
US policy makers, working directly for Wall Street and London corporate-financier interests, clearly have no qualms over using or supporting terrorism, with perception management being their only concern. We see this diabolical methodology, precisely articulated in “Which Path to Persia?” now being executed across Libya verbatim. It looks as if there was not enough time to get LIFG off various international lists of terrorist organizations as Brookings had hoped to do with MEK, and instead a concerted effort by the corporate-media and NATO members is being made to downplay the reality that the US, British, French and Qatari governments are openly sponsoring terrorism. Look for similar narratives as seen in Libya to be used in both Syria and Iran – with militant terrorists portrayed as hapless protesters being oppressed by a brutal government, before a full-scale military insurrection followed by a US led military intervention.

Amnesty calls for U.N. (MORE) sanctions, war crimes probe in Libya
Amnesty and the UN are a little too late it has taken them four years to decided for more sanctions and of course to investigate of WAR CRIMES, but question is; The UN while it has sanctioned Libya for arms, ammunition, food, medicine etc, so the legal government has no means because of the sanctions to bringing any arms into the country to get rid of the installed NATO JIHADISTS, Criminal Militias and a list of Designated terrorist organizations. So please could you explain to us Libyans how we can fight them?
Secondly what the Hell does Amnesty wants from the Libyans? When we were calling for the Amnesty people to come to Libya in 2011 they took the side of the terrorists so what do want now? To investigate WAR CRIMES? Really? How about investigating NATO CRIMES? ILLEGAL WAR OF 2011 DONE BY THE FOLLOWING PLAYERS WHO PLANNED A TOTAL COLD MURDER OF A PRESIDENT AND KILLED OVER 1 MILLION POPULATION ON THE PROCESS => SARKOZY CRIMES? BERNARD LEVI CRIMES? CAMERON & HAGUE CRIMES? OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON CRIMES? LASTLY ISRAEL CRIMES?
So when I read an article from REUTERS lap-dog of Israel, America and the War Lords, I cringe with all the misinformation they write so here is their article:
(Reuters) – Rights group Amnesty International called on Wednesday for targeted U.N. sanctions and investigations into possible war crimes in Libya to end a cycle of abductions and summary killings by rival armed factions. PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW YOU ARE GOING TO DO THAT? BY INVADING ILLEGALLY LIBYA AGAIN? Or bringing NATO for HUMANITARIAN REASONS?
An Amnesty report released on Wednesday focused on Benghazi, where an alliance of Islamist militants and ex-rebels, known as Shura Council, has battled for months with forces allied to army General Khalifa Haftar, who declared war on Islamist extremists. What Reuters is not telling you that Haftar (CIA ASSET), Shura Council are fighting each other for political power and not to get rid of the JIHADISTS, both parties are USA FUNDED and protected by the UN so dear Amnesty please explain what you really want to do… the fact is that the UN, U.S.A., AMNESTY WANT THE ISLAMIST EXTREMISTS IN LIBYA SO THAT LIBYA WILL BE DIVIDED LIKE IRAQ, SUDAN, YUGOSLAVIA IN OTHER WORDS THEY WANT TO BALKANIZE LIBYA.
The battle over Benghazi is part of a wider conflict involving two major factions and their competing governments struggling for control of the North African state and its oil resources four years
after civilwar ousted Muammar Gaddafi. THERE WAS NO CIVIL WAR IN LIBYA AND STOP USING THAT WORD, YOU REMIND ME OF THE JEWS AND THEIR PROPAGANDA OF ANTISEMITISM. A WELL PLANNED DESTRUCTION DONE BY THE WESTERN ALLIES TOGETHER WITH THE LIBYAN EXPATRIATES CATCHING THE OPPORTUNITY OF THE ARAB SPRING… A BOY OF 5 YEARS OLD CAN RESEARCH THIS ILLEGAL INVASION AND WILL FIND THAT EVERYTHING WAS STAGED TO MURDER IN COLD BLOOD A PRESIDENT AND TEAR APART A WHOLE NATION.
London-based Amnesty said that the fighting in Benghazi, the main city in eastern Libya, involved tit-for-tat attacks, abductions, summary killings and torture by each side.
“Benghazi has steadily descended into chaos and misrule. The city has been ripped apart by spiraling violence waged by rival groups and their supporters seeking vengeance,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, a regional deputy director for Amnesty.
Amnesty’s statement called for an international demonstration of will to investigate war crimes and hold perpetrators accountable as a way to end impunity. YES RIGHT WE CAN TELL YOU THE FIRST PEOPLE TO HOLD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THESE WAR CRIMES: OBAMA, CLINTON, LEVI, SARKOZY, CAMERON, HAGUE, JALIL, HAFTER, MAGARIEF, BELHAJ=>AL QAIDA AFFILIATE, JIBRIL, GOGA, HASSI, BADI, LIBYAN DAWN, LIBYAN SUNRISE, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD=>ALLIES WITH OBAMA, HILLARY AND THE UN BERNANDINO, BANDAR BUSH, ALARABIA TV CHANNEL, AL JAZEERA TV CHANNEL, SHEIKH HAMAD BIN KHALIFA AL-THANI OF QATAR, ERDOGAN, NATO MURDERER=>ANDERS FOGH RASMUSSEN THE CHILD KILLER AND ALL NATO NATIONS THAT WERE INVOLVED IN THIS MASSACRE OF 2011 LEAVING BEHIND AND INSTALLING A NEW GOVERNMENT OF AL QAEDA, ISIS, DAASH AND OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS. ALL WESTERN MEDIA OUTLETS HAVE ALSO BLOOD IN THEIR HANDS, DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS, RED CROSS WAS ASSISTING WITH ARMS THESE TERRORISTS AND DID NOT HELP THE PEOPLE IN NEED. SO THERE IS THE FIRST LIST WHEN YOU FINISH WITH THEM WE WILL GIVE THE NEXT LIST. YOUR STATEMENTS MEAN NOTHING TO THE 70,000 P.O.W. WHO ARE TORTURED, RAPPED AND KILLED DAILY BY THE ABOVE INSURGENTS.
Amnesty called on the U.N. Security Council to impose targeted sanctions such as travel bans and asset freezes on those responsible for violations. It said the International Criminal Court should also expand its probe into war crimes. DEAR AMNESTY THIS YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE IT FROM THE FIRST DAY BUT YOUR WORRIES AT THAT TIME WERE QADDAFI’S => LIBYA ASSETS AND OF COURSE FOR THE FAMILY AND RELATIVES OF QADDAFI NOT TO FLEE BUT TO BE COLD BLOODED MURDERED IN LIBYA AND THE REST IS HISTORY…
Amnesty accused both forces from the Shura Council and fighters allied to Haftar’s Operation Dignity of carrying out abductions and assassinations for political motives. Doh! gee wiz! I am speechless with your assumption! You think? The people who are contributing to your high salaries should have 1st checked your IQ standard before hiring you…
The United Nations is negotiating in Geneva with some of Libya’s factions to form a unity government, end hostilities and return the country to some stability. But key factions from Tripoli have so far stayed away. NO THE UN ASSHOLE BERNARDINO WHO WANTS THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD INSTALLED AS A PUPPET GOVERNMENT WHICH IS ILLEGALLY IN TRIPOLI. HE => (BERNARDINO) INVITED ONLY THE TERRORIST GROUPS TO THIS MEETING IGNORING THE LEGAL AND INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT WHICH SAID THEY WOULD NOT SIT WITH THE TERRORISTS WHO BROUGHT LIBYA DOWN. SO LET BERNARDINO EXPLAIN WHY HE IS GOING AGAINST THE WILL OF THE LIBYAN PEOPLE?
“Efforts to reach a political settlement will be meaningless if they do not ensure human rights concerns are addressed,” Amnesty said. “Human rights abuses committed by the warring parties are fuelling grievances and cannot be swept under the carpet.” WHY NOT? YOU DID IT IN 2011 SO WHAT’S YOUR PROBLEM NOW? TOO MANY PEOPLE WOKE UP AND WILL NOT SWALLOW YOUR LIES ANYMORE? OR ARE THE INTERNET BLOGGERS GIVING YOU A HARD TIME BY SHOWING THE TRUTH ON EVERY TURN YOU TAKE?
