But historians of the 2011 NATO war in Libya will be sure to notice a few of the truly explosive confirmations contained in the new emails:
admissions of rebel war crimes, special ops trainers inside Libya from nearly the start of protests, Al Qaeda embedded in the U.S. backed opposition, Western nations jockeying for access to Libyan oil, the nefarious origins of the absurd Viagra mass rape claim, and concern over Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves threatening European currency.

As I remember it the coalition had information on a huge convoy moving towards the western border. Air strikes were given the green light and the rest is kinda history.
Obviously the coalition tipped off the rebels or their could've been special forces on the ground. It was a NATO led operation in all technicality. The RAF spotted the convoy, and NATO drones led the attack if I remember correctly. It was French jets that done most of the work.
The rebels showed up and fought the remaining loyalists.
So as for war crimes etc I guess most people involved are fairly safe. It was a NATO operation and Qaddafi was wanted for war crimes.

I actually talked to youtuber in Libya that told me that Gaddafi was totally loved by the people. That the rebels were mercenaries trained by the US to take out their leader. That they were powerless to stop them because the rebels were armed to the teeth with the latest US ammunitions.
When you lookup what gadaffi gave to his people its no wonder they loved him so much. With free schooling, free healthcare, full unemployment benefits etc etc etc they were well looked after.

A new bank was setup near the Eastern boarder about 3 weeks before the invasion started.
Gaddafi did have a long history of killing people, 15 here, 20 there, 65 there, 3 here... Most where bandit groups coming up from the South causing trouble. He did manage to go three years at one stage without having to kill anyone. There was no war crimes trial. The Lockerbie airplane bombing event was dragged through the headlines again, demonising Libya.
France and other NATO members where happy at the time to take out Gaddafi, they might of changed their minds with the migration issues getting worst since.
Libya was targeted by the Rothschild international banking cartel. They where on list with other countries like Syria, Iran and North Korea for having Nationalistic control of their own currencies. Gaddafi was working on a gold backed Dinar for Africa.
The irrigation project was one of the first few things bombed. Western media was embedded with the Rebels during the invasion. Al Quada forces made up some of the rebels, which did move onto Syria afterwards. Obama was happy for Sharia Law to take over Libya, slaves where being traded in the street in what was once the African Nation with the best quality of life for its people.
All the work Gaddafi had done with the African National Council came to a quick end. He was one leader working to unify Africa and was making progress. It was sad what happened, too see Hillary Clinton laughing about it is telling to her evil and wicked nature. How someone can think destroying a nation is a joke is beyond me.
