NATO Troops Behead Libyans: Nightly News Report


 

NATO Troops Behead Libyans: Nightly News Report

Monday, September 12, 2011

Former US Congressman Walter Fauntroy claims he saw NATO troops behead Libyans as part of the siege to overthrow Gaddafi’s regime, a conflict Fauntroy attributes to the geopolitical agenda to re-colonize Africa.

Fauntroy was a Congressman representing District of Columbia for a period of 20 years between 1971 and 1991.

He embarked on a peace mission to Libya but soon went into hiding, with many fearing he had been killed. However, the former Congressman has re-emerged to claim he witnessed NATO soldiers commit war crimes.

According to a report by Afro.com, Fauntroy “Watched French and Danish troops storm small villages late at night beheading, maiming and killing rebels and loyalists to show them who was in control.”

“The rebels told Fauntroy they had been told by the European forces to stay inside. According to Fauntroy, the European forces would tell the rebels, “‘Look at what you did.’ In other words, the French and Danish were ordering the bombings and killings, and giving credit to the rebels.”

Shocked by what he witnessed, Fauntroy fled back to the United States, vowing, “The truth about all this will come out later.”

The Congressman added that NATO’s involvement in the civil war was primarily about preventing, “all efforts by African leaders to stop the recolonization of Africa.”

CNN confirmed that Fauntroy was amongst the journalists holed up at the Hotel Rixos before he was released on August 25. Fauntroy also claims that he personally met with Colonel Gaddafi during his time in the country.

As we have previously highlighted, atrocities have been committed by both Gaddafi loyalists and rebel fighters, although the establishment media is loathe to report instances of black Libyan migrant workers being slaughtered or incarcerated by western-backed rebels.

Numerous reports from international aid agencies confirm that rebels are rounding up thousands of innocent black migrants and taking them to prison camps as part of mass reprisals that include cases of indiscriminate killings, mistreatment and torture.

Migrant blacks and sub-Saharan Africans comprise one third of the entire Libyan population, and a minority were hired by Gaddafi as mercenary fighters, but rebels are treating them all as enemy combatants, with reports of abuse, murders and mass arrests increasing in volume.

Special forces troops from NATO powers were involved on the ground, having directed rebels for months, in the recent siege which drove Gaddafi out of his Tripoli stronghold.

Whether or not Fauntroy’s claims are accurate, the fact that NATO has stood back while the rebel forces it commands, who are also being commanded by members of Al-Qaeda, launched a genocide against innocent black Libyans completely eviscerates the so-called “humanitarian” justification for NATO’s military intervention.

Why The White House Is Desperate To Bury Benghazi


Why The White House Is Desperate To Bury Benghazi

By Paul Joseph Watson

Amidst new revelations concerning emails that show the Obama administration conspired to create a phony narrative around the Benghazi attacks, the true purpose behind the cover-up is being obfuscated – the fact that an annex near the U.S. embassy was being used by the CIA to transfer surface to air missiles to terrorists in Syria.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa issued a subpoena for Secretary of State John Kerry to testify before the committee on May 21 about Benghazi following the release of emails by Judicial Watch which show that the White House crafted a deceptive policy to falsely frame the attack as a spontaneous protest sparked by a YouTube video in order to protect BarackObama’s image.

Lost in the haze of claims and counter claims is the real reason why the White House is desperate to prevent the attack from coming under any further scrutiny – because it would likely reveal an arms smuggling scandal that could rival Iran-Contra.

In May last year, Senator Rand Paul was one of the first to speculate that the truth behind Benghazi was linked to an illicit arms smuggling program that saw weapons being trafficked to terrorists in Syria as part of the United States’ proxy war against the Assad regime.

“I’ve actually always suspected that, although I have no evidence, that maybe we were facilitating arms leaving Libya going through Turkey into Syria,” Paul told CNN, adding that he “never….quite understood the cover-up — if it was intentional or incompetence”.

At the same time it emerged that the U.S. State Department had hired an Al-Qaeda offshoot organization, the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, to “defend” the Benghazi Mission months before the attack.

Senator Paul was vindicated less than three months later when it emerged that the CIA had been subjecting its operatives to monthly polygraph tests in an effort to keep a lid on details of the arms smuggling operation being leaked.

On August 1, CNN reported that dozens of CIA agents were on the ground in Benghazi during the attack and that the polygraph tests were mandated in order to prevent operatives from talking to Congress or the media about a program that revolved around “secretly helping to move surface-to-air missiles out of Libya, through Turkey, and into the hands of Syrian rebels.” *****(we have been saying this before the assassination of the Ambassador but nobody wanted to listen)

Although the Obama administration is now openly arming the Syrian rebels, it has been keen to stress that such weaponry has been restricted to so-called “moderate” fighters, despite the fact that it is now widely acknowledged that Al-Qaeda is by far the most potent fighting force in Syria and indeed commands all the other militant groups.

The real truth behind Benghazi is likely to reveal that the Obama administration knowingly and deliberately provided surface to air missiles and other weapons to the most bloodthirsty Al-Qaeda jihadists in Syria who are now busy crucifying Christians while promising to bring their reign of terror to the west.

If a proper investigation into the Benghazi attacks uncovered concrete evidence of this arms smuggling scandal, Obama would face impeachment and many members of his administration would be facing long stretches in prison.

That’s the real reason why the White House is desperate to bury Benghazi.

The 4 Deeper Truths about Benghazi and Libya


The 4 Deeper Truths about Benghazi and Libya

 

Democrats and Republicans Are Both Missing the Big Picture On Benghazi and Libya

Democrats and Republicans have very different views about Benghazi, Libya.

The 4 Deeper Truths about Benghazi and Libya 070514ben

Image: Clinton & Obama (YouTube).

Republicans say the Obama administration is to blame for the death of Ambassador Stevens – and have created a special committee to investigate Benghazi – while Democrats by and large say that the is nothing but politics.

The truth is bigger than either side is admitting …

First, Pulitzer prize winning reporter Seymour Hersh – who broke the story of the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam under Nixon and the torture scandal under Bush – says that Benghazi was really a CIA outpost for running weapons capture from Libya after Gaddaffi was overthrown into Syria … approved on a bipartisan basis by both Democrats and Republicans.

Second, it has been confirmed that the U.S. backed Al Qaeda terrorists in Libya so that they would overthrow Gaddaffi.

Third, as we noted right after Gaddaffi fell, the Obama administration’s stated reason for going into Libya makes no sense. Now, RAND Corporation political scientists theorize that Obama might have decided to bomb Libya – not for any reason having to do with Libya or Gaddaffi themselves – but rather “to keep the Arab Spring going“.

The U.S. ousted Gaddaffi and then left, and Libya has now descended into chaos.

The Washington Post argues that America fighting the Libyan war is a bigger scandal than Benghazi itself:

Republicans have a potentially strong case to make against the Obama administration’s handling of Libya, as the latest political developments there underline. On Sunday, a disputed vote in parliament led to the swearing-in of a new prime minister — the sixth since former dictator Moammar Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011 with the help of U.S. and NATO air forces. The new leader, an Islamist from the city of Misurata, replaced pro-Western prime minister Ali Zeidan, who was driven out of the country this year after his government proved unable to stop a militia from filling a tanker with stolen oil.

From the safety of Europe, Mr. Zeidan conceded what was obvious all along: Libya’s post-Gaddafi government has no army and no way of establishing its authority over the hundreds of militias that sprang up in the vacuum that followed the revolution. Libya has fragmented into fiefdoms, its oil industry is virtually paralyzed, massive traffic in illegal weapons is supplying militants around the region and extremist groups such as Ansar al-Sharia, which participated in the Sept. 11, 2012, assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, are unchecked.


The Obama administration and its NATO allies bear responsibility for this mess because, having intervened to help rebels overthrow Gaddafi, they then swiftly exited without making a serious effort to help Libyans establish security and build a new political order. Congress might usefully probe why the administration allowed a country in which it initiated military operations to slide into chaos.

Fourth, the Libya war – just like the Iraq war – was illegal, as noted in the New York Times,Washington PostHuffington PostWashington TimesGuardianSalon, and elsewhere.

Those are four the deeper stories about Benghazi and Libya which neither the Democrats or Republicans are talking about …

Benghazi: The Insecure Crossroad of Oil, Mercenaries and Jihadists


Benghazi: The Insecure Crossroad of Oil, Mercenaries and Jihadists

There are events going on in Africa that are quite devastating for people living there, although the world is currently focused on Ukraine and another attempt to create a failed state. For example, on the last day of April 2014, 34 percent of the shares in Heritage Oil were sold to Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani, the former prime minister of Qatar, by Tony Buckingham. Mr. Buckingham and his friends have become quite rich from the wars in Iraq and Libya due to their ownership of oil fields, provision of private security to war zones, and creative business transactions.

6171549101_a144be16dc_b

Immediately after the sale of the shares of Heritage Oil, for example, the value of these shares rose by 23 percent. How such market accidents happen is beyond the logic of mere writers, but it will be recalled that a similar kind of market joy happened when Heritage Oil “discovered” its product in Iraq straight after the second Gulf War. Somebody from Heritage Oil leaked information to Genels directors Mehmet Sepel, Murat Ozgul and Levent Akca, who bought shares of the company before the oil find was officially announced. Fortunately they were prosecuted for insider dealing.

Returning to the more recent Heritage Oil deal. On its own, there is nothing remarkable in buying and selling companies. The timing of this sale, however, produced a remarkable coincidence. One of the areas in which Heritage Oil has interests is in the failed state of Libya, or to be more precise: Benghazi. Less than a week after Heritage Oil changed hands, the security headquarters in Benghazi were attacked yet again, this time killing nine people and wounding 24. The group blamed for this attack by the Libyan government is Ansar al-Shariah, which was also blamed for the September 2012 attack on the same security headquarters that killed United States Ambassador Christopher Stevens together with three of his staff members.

14071405386_74f10569cc_b

Ansar al-Shariah spokesperson Mohammad Ali al-Zahawi denies that the group had any involvement in the 2012 attack. If the attackers on May 2, 2014 were Ansar al-Shariah, they were well-funded by some source, because they put up a fierce battle against the security forces in Benghazi, and this cannot be done without modern weaponry. Ansar al-Shariah oppose Liberals in Benghazi and claim to have overthrown Muammar Gaddafi, which would make them NATO allies rather than enemies.

Before Buckingham became an oil magnate, he was implicated in mercenary activities throughout Africa.  He has a past full of work on behalf of governments to overthrow other governments, and his days as a mercenary may be considered checkered, though he claims they are over. One of his business partners, Simon Mann, has been convicted of trying to engineer a coup d’etat and imprisoned for this crime. Another of Buckingham’s ties was to Tim Spicer, a former Lieutenant-Colonel in the Scots Guards who served in Northern Ireland. Two of Spicer’s soldiers there were serving lifetime prison sentences for shooting two unarmed men and killing one of them: Peter McBride.

6808987163_cb86f3eb57_o

Spicer has always been protective of Tony Buckingham. When he was pulled before a House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee in 1998 and questioned about whether Buckingham was Chairman of the private security company Sandline International, Spicer told the committee “I may have referred to him as Chairman but he is not the Chairman of Sandline,” claiming instead that he just sought advice and support from Buckingham. When asked who was the Chairman of Sandline International, Spicer finally said that he himself was the only senior official of the company. (Craig Murray, The Catholic Orangemen of Togo and Other Conflicts I Have Known, Atholl Publishing, pp. 64-5)

After the war in Iraq, Spicer got the contract for private security in that country through his company PMC Aegis Defense Services. After some serious questions in the US Congress, then-Senator Barack Obama wrote to a constituent in 2005 “As you know, the CEO of Aegis Defense Services Tim Spicer has been implicated in a variety of human rights abuses around the globe. Given his history, I agree that the United States should consider rescinding its contract with his company.” Spicer has been pressed on this issue more than once, but Aegis is still there, among other things allegedly protecting the oil fields stolen from the Iraqis in this other failed state.

6171549099_2f11466aeb_b

Considering that Buckingham is a former mercenary with contacts in the private security industry, could it be a coincidence that the sale of Heritage Oil and the attack on the security headquarters in Benghazi happened only days apart? According to The Independent, Heritage Oil had recently not been performing well. This enabled the oil-rich Sheikh to buy in cheap, at less than a billion pounds sterling. Buckingham came out of the deal quite well, pocketing a cool £300m from his oil interests. Although he cannot sell his shares for five years, he stays on in an advisory role and retains a 20 percent stake, which has already shot up in value by 23 percent, as noted before.

13542410724_8c0f756f5d_b

What was thesource of the funds to Ansar al-Shariah, or whoever carried out the latest attack on Benghazi? Don’t be surprised if there is a drone strike andextra-judicial killing of somebody allegedly responsible for thesecurity-headquarters attack. It is the new way of US justice. 

13542183823_761e827143_b

One cannot but feel sympathy for Libyans and Iraqis whose countries have been put into perpetual turmoil by a NATO intervention and theft of their oil. Qatar is one of the most repressive of the Sheikh kingdoms and a fitting partner to western powers. It has been chosen as the venue for the 2022 World Cup but an ambassador from Nepal, Maya Kumari Sharma, has called the country an “open jail” due to the deaths of a growing number of Nepalese migrant workers.

While Qatar is a state with which the UK is friendly for the moment, many people will recall the photograph of Tony Blair hugging Muammar Gaddafi three or four years before NATO’s humanitarian liberation of Libya that has since left it in a permanent state of civil war. Where there is big money, there are generally power battles to protect financial interests and maximize profits. Governments also have interests because the big investors fund political parties to gain lobby leverage. Tony Buckingham has been a big donor to the United Kingdom’s Tory Party. How much does the UK government know about what is happening in Libya and how much involvement do we as a country today have?
