BENGHAZIGATE: The killing of al Qaeda leader Faraj Al-Shalabi Connected to the Killing of Stevens

The killing of al Qaeda leader Faraj Al-Shalabi ‫ ‬ customary in Prairie

Faraj al-Shalabi

According to news sources from El Marg City, Libya. They confirmed the death of Al Qaeda/Ansar Sharia/ Daash/ LIFG/ Nusra/Isis/ CIA/FBI/MI6/DGSE Secret Service leader, Faraj al-Shalabi, who is also a member of the Jewish Misurata militia. The news sources stated that Al Shalabi was found dead after his disappearance two days ago.

As reported in the mainstream media in the USA, the Obama administration and US State department told the whole world that ambassador Stevens and three SAS Americans were killed by the Ansar Sharia militia. The supposed Master mind of this killing (assassination?) was Faraj al Shalabi hence the State department issued that the Ansar Sharia is a terrorist group.  What the State department of America does not say is that Al Qaeda and its affiliates, listed above, are one and the same. On June 14, 2014, The US kidnapped Ahmed Abu Khattala (on Libya soil) . Khattala is a man who is not capable of tying his own shoes let alone master minding a sophisticated attack.

In other words, this was not “Osama bin Laden” hiding in a cave in Afghanistan, changing locations constantly to avoid detection. Khattala told his CNN interviewer, Arwa Damon, that he had not been contacted by any Libyan or American officials despite being an eyewitness to some of the events of September 11, 2012. “Even the investigative team did not try to contact me,” he told Damon, referring to the FBI.

 Rumors abound about Obama wanting to run for the presidency of the US in 2016 for a 3rd term but Hillary Clinton also wants to run for the Presidency in 2016.  It’s only natural that both Obama and Clinton would like the BENGHAZIGATE scandal to disappear forever. It is only reasonable to assume that they are killing off any witnesses that were either involved or were eye witnesses to what happened on the night of September 11, 2012.  Both of these “criminal” politicians do not want the public to know the truth and the reason for the ORDER to “stand down” and do respond to call for help from the Ambassador.  One should always remember that Hillary Clinton and her husband are famous in the US for the trail of dead bodies that they have around them since Bill Clinton was the Governor of Arkansas.  Not long after Clinton took the White House, Hillary Clinton’s right hand man, Vince Foster, was found dead in a park in DC. The report said suicide but they could not explain how Foster could kill himself and then move his own body to a park in DC and then cover himself with leaves from a different park.  Suffice it to say, the Clintons and Mr. Obama are not averse to using any measures to maintain their power.  This is historical fact.

This article is just another verification of the illegal war that Obama waged against Libya: President Barack Obama has waged illegal wars (Libya).  Obama is well know for following his Zionist orders and using armed Islamic fundamentalists (Libya and Syria) to provoke civil wars (Ukraine) and assert the right of their puppet president to order the assassination of any person, including American citizens, without trial or even a hearing. The Obama administration has built up the infrastructure of a police state, greatly expanding the US spying apparatus and seeking to monitor and collect the telecommunications, email and Internet activities of virtually everyone on the planet.  Obama is now moving thousands of illegal aliens across the southern border of the US (being done illegally) and it is known that radical Islamists are filtering into the US this way as evidenced by prayer rugs and Korans found laying around the border of the US and Mexico.

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives is pushing for an investigation.  Not an investigation of the countless crimes committed by Obama and Clinton against humanity, international law, the US Constitution and basic democratic rights, but of the White House talking points on Benghazi.  On May 8, the House voted 233-186, along nearly party lines, to establish a select committee to investigate the incident.

Its not enough that the Zionist Mafia (Obama) violated our sovereignty, but they imported Al Qaeda to destabilize Libya and now they are killing off witnesses who can shed light on what really happened. There are so many different scenarios playing in the western media currently that it is difficult to discern the truth of any of these reports. Confusing? Not a coincidence.

Libya, ALBA and the West: Humanity’s Choice Between Cooperative Solidarity and Murderous Competition


alfatah69:

In September 2013, the Belfer Center of Harvard University published a study confirming that NATO’s war on Libya was based on downright falsehoods. In June this year the US authorities announced data indicating that the economy contracted 2.9% in the first quarter. In the same month Facebook admitted accusations that it had abused its system so as to carry out an unauthorized experiment in mass psychological manipulation of its users

But no one in the NATO countries concerned is facing trial in the International Criminal Court for the criminal aggression against Libya. Stock market prices continue at high levels and the financial media say, six years after the international financial system collapsed in 2008, that the recovery is “gaining traction”. The millions of Facebook users continue to use that social network as if nothing has happened presumably because it has become such an integral part of their daily routine.

The connection between these diverse apparently unrelated events is that they show the integral corruption of the criminal system of Western capitalism. No matter where one looks. In international relations, in the United Nations, in the economy, in the financial system, in intellectual life, in the communications media, in sports bodies like FIFA or the International Olympic Committee, corruption is everywhere. Virtually every area of public policy is perverted so as to benefit corporate elites.

In Western media, innumerable liberal and progressive analysts express an almost neurotic longing for change. The academic and media phenomenon of Thomas Piketty’s study of capitalism openly acknowledges the social and economic injustice of capitalism. The media phenomenon of Edward Snowden explicitly recognizes the routine abuse on a massive scale about which many other people before Snowden had raised the alarm for decades.

Few have noted the paradox that these media phenomena are generated by the self-same inert broken system that Snowden and Piketty criticize. Far from being a virtuous demonstration of democracy, essentially what Piketty and Snowden and their promoters are saying comes down to something like, “Sure, the system’s broken but if we tighten a nut here and a bolt there the machinery will work again just fine”. Or perhaps, if the Princess could only overcome her revulsion and kiss the toad everyone could live happily ever after. Real human history has been very different.

Human history prior to 1945 was one of a century and a half of bitter struggle by untold millions of women and men around the world against the sadistic cruelty and injustice of genocidal Western capitalism. That long history of struggle achieved a few positive results at end of the Second World War, including the start of decolonization and recognition of the right to self-determination. One can argue that those changes have helped the majority world to resist in some degree since 1990 the persistent surges of aggression by the Western powers trying to defend their residual global domination.

In recent years, Libya has been the most representative case of North American and European sadism and hypocrisy. The opportune study in 2013 by Alan Kuperman of Harvard University’s Belfer Center concludes : “Libya’s 2011 uprising was never peaceful, but instead was armed and violent from the start. Muammar al-Qaddafi did not target civilians or resort to indiscriminate force.” Kuperman adds, “NATO’s action magnified the conflict’s duration about sixfold, and its death toll at least sevenfold, while also exacerbating human rights abuses, humanitarian suffering, Islamic radicalism, and weapons proliferation in Libya and its neighbors.

While there has been wide recognition of the deceit-based failure of the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq, not for nothing have few admitted the disastrous failure of the war against Libya. More than any other recent conflict, the sadistic aggression against Libya revealed the falsity not just of Western governments and corporate media but also of Western alternative media, progressive intellectuals and progressive movements. Along the whole length of the Western political spectrum the most distinguished political academic and intellectual leaders were mistaken in the most humiliating and shameful way.

The destruction of Libya shows the completely rotten reality underlying the false claims to moral and intellectual superiority of Western political culture. The contagion of baseless prejudices and rumours glibly treated as fact also extended to many majority world intellectuals. It was truly remarkable how many supposedly cultured, sophisticated individuals, knowing practically nothing about Libya, expressed an irrational antipathy against both the Libyan Jamahiriya and its architect Muammar al-Gaddhafi.

Only a few leaders, notably Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chávez and Fidel Castro, showed the necessary wisdom to accurately assess what was happening. This is indisputable. So one obvious conclusion is to question the judgment of all those Western political leaders, intellectuals and many supposedly progressive movements, whatever their political label may be. The aggression against Libya has proven to be the graveyard of the credibility of public political and intellectual life in North America and Europe.

The UN showed itself yet again to be a reliable accomplice of aggression violating its most fundamental principles. Almost alone, it was the governments of the Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas who maintained a consistent and correct position based on an accurate assessment of the facts. When almost all other world political leaders failed so grossly on Libya, it is indeed interesting to look at why Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chávez, Fidel Castro and their ALBA colleagues got things right.

More than anyone those leaders and their colleagues like Nicolas Maduro, Evo Morales and Rafael Correa understand the meaning of the true history of mass struggle against the Western imperialist powers throughout the majority world. They were right about Libya and they are right now in their defence of Cuba, Venezuela and Argentina in Latin America and, elsewhere, of the people and government of Syria and the people of eastern Ukraine. Last week they again showed the strength of their anti-imperialist political vision in two very important events for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Firstly, last week saw the first meeting of the Administrative Council of the long delayed Bank of the South, a South American alternative to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Secondly, last week also saw unanimous solidarity with Argentina from Latin American and Caribbean countries in the Organization of American States against US court judgments favouring predatory vulture funds. Both cases indicate the influence and prestige achieved in recent years of the ALBA countries’ vision of solidarity based regional integration.

As the economic and political crisis in the NATO countries deepens, the challenge to its global political and economic domination increases. The West promotes a vision based on greed and competition rigged via unfair trade, manipulative development cooperation and unjust debt. The increasingly influential ALBA vision, of solidarity and cooperation based on fundamental respect for nations’ self-determination is also the vision of the Libyan Jamahiriya. In Latin America, the deep moral battle between this vision and the destructive corporate greed of the West plays out mainly in the continuing vicious blockade of Cuba, the violent destabilization of Venezuela and, now, the wanton legal attack on Argentina’s economy.

Who is responsible for the catastrophes in the Middle East?


 

Who is responsible for the catastrophes in the Middle East?

by Bill Van Auken

“The United States of America is not responsible for what happened in Libya, nor is it responsible for what is happening in Iraq today,” Secretary of State John Kerry declared at a Cairo news conference held in the midst of his recent crisis tour of the Middle East.

As Kerry spoke, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and a growing Sunni insurgency were consolidating their grip over the north and west of Iraq, including the country’s borders with Syria and Jordan. Upwards of a million Iraqis had been displaced by the fighting, and thousands had been killed in the mounting sectarian slaughter.

Libya is in a state of complete collapse, with continuous fighting between rival militias, a government that exists in name only, oil production down by at least 80 percent, and over a million ****(unfortunately its over 3 million) people forced to flee the country’s violence. Many thousands ****(over 70 thousand) are incarcerated in a network of prisons run by armed groups that practice systematic torture.

Kerry’s statement merely made official the steady drumbeat from the political establishment and the media since the situation in Iraq turned into a complete debacle: “The US bears no responsibility.”

Typical was the commentary by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, a “human rights” imperialist who was a vocal proponent of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. He wrote: “The debacle in Iraq isn’t President Obama’s fault. It’s not the Republicans’ fault… overwhelmingly, it’s the fault of the Iraqi prime minister, Nuri Kamal al-Maliki.” ***(Really? Maliki is the puppet of the USA so how is it his fault?)

Maliki, the stooge put in power and kept there by the US occupation, is made the fall guy.

Thomas Friedman, the Times’ foreign affairs columnist, wrote Sunday that Maliki is an “arsonist,” who, “the minute America left Iraq,” deliberately unleashed mayhem. This is the same Friedman who in 2003 declared that the US invaded Iraq “because we could,” spoke proudly of US troops going house-to-house and ordering Iraqis to “suck on this,” and declared that he had “no problem with a war for oil.”

Listening to the chorus of statements insisting that the US has no responsibility for the deepening tragedy inflicted upon the people of Iraq and Libya, one is reminded of nothing so much as the Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg, from Hermann Göring on down, rising one-by-one in the dock to declare themselves “not guilty.”

What are the crimes for which Kerry and so many others in the ruling establishment insist Washington bears no responsibility?

The description that they used for their own actions at the time was “shock and awe,” the unleashing of colossal destructive force upon a society already shattered by a decade of sadistic US sanctions. Killing hundreds of thousands of people and turning millions into refugees, the US war and occupation destroyed every institution of Iraqi society, while Washington deliberately fomented sectarian divisions as a means of overcoming Iraqi nationalism. The country’s deposed ruler, Saddam Hussein, was tried by a drumhead court and unceremoniously executed.

All of this was justified with warnings about the imminent threat from “weapons of mass destruction” and ties between Baghdad and Al Qaeda. As the whole world now knows, it was all lies.

There were no WMDs and there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq until US imperialism overthrew the country’s government and tore its social fabric to pieces. In fact, there was no Al Qaeda at all before Washington set about inciting a bloody war by right-wing Islamists in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

In Libya and now in Syria, the Obama administration abandoned the “war on terrorism” pretext for an equally cynical and fraudulent justification for regime-change: “human rights.” In Libya, the US and NATO heavily bombed the country while organizing and arming Islamist-led militias in a sectarian war that destroyed all of the existing governmental and social structures. As in Iraq, it ended its war with the brutal murder of the country’s secular leader, Muammar Gaddafi.

Washington is carrying out a similar war for regime-change in Syria, backing Sunni Islamist and sectarian militias that are led by ISIS, the same force that has overrun much of Iraq. The US hopes to end this war with the assassination of a third secular Arab head of state, Bashar al-Assad.

Just last week, Obama proposed to funnel $500 million in arms to the Syrian “rebels”—weapons that everyone knows will end up in the hands of ISIS, which the US is supposedly committed to defeating in Iraq.

As the contradictions and deceptions of Washington’s policy become ever more glaring, US officials simply act as though the American people won’t notice, or will believe anything. Or, for that matter, they won’t see that $500 million can be conjured up instantly to pay for a criminal war, while working people are being told “there is no money” for health care, education, housing or jobs.

The destruction that the US oligarchs have wrought in the Middle East, with all of its terrible human consequences, is the external manifestation of their destructive role within the US itself—smashing up the country’s manufacturing base, turning its economy into a gambling casino for financial parasites, destroying the jobs and living standards of millions of people. With no answers to the growing crisis at home, they turn to violence abroad, only compounding the catastrophes they have created overseas.

The “not responsibles” and “not guilties” from Kerry, Kristof, Friedman and the other advocates and apologists for American military aggression won’t wash. US imperialism is responsible for terrible crimes against humanity.

Yet no one has been held accountable. Not those in Washington—Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Powell, et al.—who conspired to wage a war of aggression; not those in the current administration, from Obama on down, who conspired to shield their predecessors and continue the same predatory policies; not the military brass who carried out the war; not the private contractors who enriched themselves off of it; not the lying media that helped foist the war onto the American public; not the cowardly and conformist academics who justified and went along with it.

Together, they are responsible for the catastrophes that have been inflicted upon the peoples of Iraq, Libya and Syria.

Benghazi attacks suspect pleads not guilty in US court


Benghazi attacks suspect pleads not guilty in US court

By Olivia Hampton

Justice Department could bring additional charges

Abu Khatallah charged over deadly attack on American mission in Benghazi pleads not guilty during a brief appearance in US federal court.

The Libyan militia leader ****(we have said it over a thousand times he is not a militia leader he is the idiot of the village the real leader of the Militia who coordinated together with Morsi of Egypt and Obama of the U.S.A. his name is: Ismael Sallabi  the most feared person in Libya) charged over a deadly attack on the American mission in Benghazi pleaded not guilty during a brief appearance in US federal court Saturday.

A federal grand jury indicted Ahmed Abu Khatallah during the rare Saturday session on a single charge of conspiracy to provide material support and resources ****(he CANNOT TIE HIS SHOE LACES AND HE PROVIDED ALL THAT? PLEASE! We know how the FEDERAL GRAND JURY WORKS…. they fabricate everything just to COVER-UP THIS MINOR MISHAP WHICH ITS TAKING GREAT LENGTHS IN BRINGING AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT TO BE IMPEACHED AS THE SAME GOES FOR HILLARY CLINTON)   to terrorists for the attacks that killed US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans two years ago.

He was ****(KIDNAPPED from Libya and then taken to the American ship where he was tortured and then he was flown) flown to Washington by helicopter shortly after sunrise from a US Navy warship where he had been held and interrogated since his high-profile capture two weeks ago, a law enforcement official said.

The suspect, believed to be 43 and also known as Ahmed Mukatallah, listened to the court proceedings through an interpreter and raised his right hand before public defender Shelli Peterson entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Wearing a dark tracksuit, Abu Khatallah had a long, dark gray beard and mustache with curly hair, court sketches showed. He was not handcuffed.

The case’s lead prosecutor warned that the Justice Department could bring additional charges against Abu Khatallah during the ongoing investigation about the assault that saw gunmen storm the US mission in Benghazi and set it on fire.

“Right now, the right move was to not show all your cards at once, ****(what he means is that they are going to fabricate more lies to cover Hillary Clinton the arms dealer and Obama the coordinator)a senior law enforcement official explained.

A CIA annex was also targeted in the attacks that shocked Washington, quickly growing into a highly charged political issue. ****(of course it caused a highly charged political issue as the CIA ANNEX is to interrogate all kidnapped people from all over the world in a non-American soil! This for the American people does not exist and with the killing of the 4 Americans it came to light.)

Abu Khatallah is due back in court, located just a mile (1.6 kilometers) from the White House, on Wednesday for a detention hearing, and again on July 8 for a status hearing.

The US State Department has identified Khatallah as a senior leader of Ansar al-Sharia ***(again they got it wrong the man may belong to the group of Ansar al Sharia but is not responsible for the attack, the one responsible is Ismael Sallabi ), a Libyan group responsible for a spate of attacks and assassinations.

US commandos captured Khatallah — who could face the death penalty — two weeks ago in a covert raid on Libyan soil.

Libya accused Washington of violating its sovereignty, ****(it’s not the first time the Americans have done that, lets not forget Anas al Liby he was also kidnapped) though it had failed to fulfill an outstanding arrest warrant against Abu Khatallah because of the tense security situation in the flashpoint eastern city of Benghazi.

The raid represents a victory for President Barack Obama, who has faced intense criticism over his administration’s handling of the Benghazi assault and its aftermath.

Some Republicans have criticized the administration’s decision to try Khatallah in civilian court rather than through the Guantanamo Bay special military tribunals.

Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte expressed “serious concerns that conducting a rushed interrogation onboard a ship and then turning Khattalah over to our civilian courts risks losing critical intelligence that could lead us to other terrorists or prevent future attacks.” ****(No need just ask Obama and he will tell you when the next terrorist act will take place)

The case relies heavily on accounts from Libyan officials ****(who have dual citizenship Libya/American) and witnesses who have singled out Khatallah as taking part in the assault that day.

FBI investigators were only able to visit the crime scenes to collect evidence several weeks after the assault due to high security concerns.

Nevertheless, the government is “very confident in our ability to bring this case to prosecution and secure a conviction,” a senior law enforcement official said.

“The bottom line is you don’t commit the resources we committed to go to the other side of the world apprehending an individual, bringing him on a ship for prosecution if you are not very confident in your case.” ***(yes you do if you want to cover the ass of Obama and Clinton it’s not the first time and it will not be the last)

FBI Director James Comey hailed Abu Khatallah’s capture as a “major step forward” in the investigation, but stressed that the agency’s work was not yet over.

“This case remains one of our top priorities and we will continue to pursue all others who participated in this brazen attack on our citizens and our country,” he said.

The choice of the US District Court in Washington to try Abu Khatallah was unusual, as most terror suspects tried in the United States since the September 11, 2001 attacks have been tried in federal courts in New York and Alexandria, Virginia.

Khatallah had often been seen in public and defiantly spoke with reporters last year at a luxury hotel in Benghazi.

US officials have dismissed suggestions that the suspect was “hiding in plain sight,” or that the operation to capture him could have been conducted much sooner. ****(He was not hiding, he was actually interviewed by CNN, FOX and other channels so the US officials are lying through their teeth.) 

The Benghazi attack raised questions about security at US diplomatic facilities worldwide and the accuracy of US intelligence on militant threats.

Republicans charged that the White House failed to respond decisively and then tried to hide some facts in the grisly episode.

The Obama administration, in turn, has accused critics of politicizing a tragic event.

Libya condemns US violation of sovereignty after capture of Abu Khatallah

 

Libyan government… between two fires

TRIPOLI – US commandos violated Libya’s sovereignty when they seized the suspected ringleader of a deadly 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, the foreign ministry said on Wednesday. ****(The real ring leader is still at large, the foreign administration of America DO NOT WANT THE REAL ring leader as he will expose the truth. The name of the ring leader is: Ismael Sallabi who is still free in Libya.)

Special Forces carried out Sunday’s stealth operation under cover of night, capturing Ahmed Abu Khatallah near Benghazi and spiriting him out of the country.

“The Libyan government condemns this regrettable infringement on Libya’s sovereignty,” foreign ministry spokesman Said Lassoued said in a statement, adding that Tripoli had not been informed in advance.

In announcing the operation, Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby would not say whether Washington gave Libya advance notice.

Also on Wednesday, Justice Minister Salah al-Marghani told a news conference that there is already an outstanding arrest warrant for Abu Khatallah.

But he said Libyan security forces had not been able to arrest him because of the security situation in the flashpoint eastern city of Benghazi.

Lassoued underlined in his statement “Libya’s right to judge Abu Khattalah on its soil in conformity with its law, and asks the American government to return him to Libya.”

Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed when gunmen stormed the US consulate on September 11, 2012 and set it on fire. A CIA outpost was also targeted. ****(the truth is that it was well planned from America and its corporate cronies who are in the arm dealings, the Late Stevens was doing their dirty job and while he did a perfect job he had to be eliminated as he was a danger to the US foreign policy and of course to the masters who master minded the illegal war in Libya my readers can go on the pages where there are many articles about the Benghazigate scandal and decide for themselves what is true and what is false.)

The attack shocked *****(I doubt it shocked DC the new about it weeks before) Washington and became a highly charged political issue, raising questions about security at US missions. Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton faced hostile questioning before lawmakers over the issue. ****(one of the Arms dealer)

Republicans alleged that the White House failed to respond decisively and then tried to hide some facts in the grisly episode.

The Obama administration has accused critics of politicising a tragic event and says it has divulged all the details of the case.

US federal prosecutors have charged Abu Khatallah with murder, carrying a weapon and offering material support to “terrorism,” according to an indictment.

The first charge potentially carries the death penalty.

The charges reflect accounts from Libyan officials and witnesses who have singled out Abu Khatallah as allegedly taking part in the assault that day.

The State Department had identified Abu Khatallah as a senior leader of Ansar al-Sharia, a Libyan Islamist group it brands a “terrorist” organisation responsible for a spate of attacks and assassinations.
