The head of the National Transitional Council’s executive bureau, Mahmoud Jebril, met with Tom Donilon, Obama’s national security adviser, and other senior officials, the White House said in a statement, Reuters  reports today.
It was reported that Obama signed a presidential “finding” approving covert aid in the last two or three weeks, according to officials .
Jibril is the U.S. educated, self-proclaimed prime minister of the Libyan Republic, one of two artificial entities claiming to represent the people of Libya. His government has been recognized as the “sole legitimate representative” of Libya by France, Portugal,The United Kingdom and Qatar, but, at the current time, recognition has not been given by the great majority of United Nations member states. Jibril shares the NATO backed Libyan opposition with CIA asset Khalifa Hifter .
Another rebel leader, Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi , admitted in March his faction is associated with al-Qaeda. Mr. al-Hasidi told the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore his fighters “are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists,” but added that the “members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader.”
Al-Hasidid was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG, which killed dozens of Libyan troops in guerrilla attacks around Derna and Benghazi in 1995 and 1996.He also fought in the CIA’s war in Afghanistan.

During the course of 2007, writes Webster Tarpley , the LIFG declared itself an official subsidiary of al-Qaeda, later assuming the name of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. As a result of this 2007 merger, an increased number of guerrilla fighters arrived in Iraq from Libya. In 2008, Ayman al-Zawahiri claimed that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group had joined al-Qaeda.
Jibril argued that the U.S. should give his group around $180 million in funds stolen from Muammar Gaddafi when it arranged to invade the country under humanitarian cover.
The meeting follows one held in London between Mustafa Abdel Jalil  and British Prime Minister David Cameron. Jalil served as Gaddafi’s justice minister. In addition to pledging funds, Cameron said Britain would boost its presence in the rebel stronghold carved out of Benghazi, where British diplomats are now based.
Cash from the United States and Britain will ensure that the so-called Libyan opposition remains in the clutches of the West and the carved out entities in Libya function as puppet states.
Earlier today, NATO bombed Gaddafi’s compound in Tripoli  for a second time in a week. The attack came hours after a defiant Gaddafi appeared on state television.
