On Thursday, the United States and the European Union warned that Libyan Army weapons may make their way to al-Qaeda, specifically al-Qaeda of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). AQIM is reportedly active in the Sahara.
Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano teamed up with her European counterparts and discussed how to prevent the transfer, according to the Egyptian Gazette. Napolitano met with the interior ministers from the largest G6 European Union nations – Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain.
“There is a circumstance that worries us at the moment and that is that the Libyan conflict is affecting AQIM,” Spanish Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba told a news conference at the El Pardo palace outside Madrid. “What seems especially negative to us is the possibility that arms belonging to the Libyan army, or what is left of it, could fall into the hands of the terrorists.”
The meeting represents yet another instance of hypocrisy for the sake of anti-Gaddafi propaganda. The terror group named after a Mujahideen database in Libya has received support from Europe since the mid-1990s.
Britain’s MI6 supported Libya’s Islamic Fighting Group, at the time connected to al-Qaeda, in an effort of assassinate Col. Gaddafi in 1996. The revelation appeared in Forbidden Truth, a book published in America by two French intelligence experts.
The corporate media in the United States has all but ignored the fact the al-Qaeda and the U.S. and NATO are on the same side in the engineered overthrow of Gaddafi, who has refused to play by rules dictated by the bankers, the IMF and the World Bank.
The Libyan rebel commander Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi participated along with al-Qaeda in killing U.S. occupation soldiers in Iraq. Mr. al-Hasidi insists 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,” The Telegraph reported on March 25.
In the United States, the corporate media says absolutely nothing about Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi and his link to al-Qaeda and the targeting of U.S. soldiers. In fact, they do not mention him at all. A Google News search produces results on his name from Pravda, but nothing from the New York Times or CNN.
If blame is to be placed for arming al-Qaeda, it should fall on France. On Wednesday, France became the first NATO country to openly acknowledge arming the so-called rebels. Le Figaro newspaper said France had parachuted rocket launchers, assault rifles, machine guns and anti-tank missiles into the Western Mountains of Libya in early June.
As far back as April, reports put al-Qaeda gangs on the streets of Misrata.
It looks like they will be using new French machine guns soon. This will provide Napolitano and other war on terror bureaucrats with more fodder as they run their terror campaign for the bankers into the indefinite future.
