US confirms al Qaeda members' role in rebel command. Qaddafi contacts them
DEBKAfile Special Report September 1, 2011, 12:47 PM (GMT+02:00)

From Qaddafi's intelligence files

The Obama administration finally acknowledged Wednesday, Aug. 31 that al Qaeda elements had been fighting in Libyan rebel ranks in last week's capture of Tripoli. This came about in a cautious remark from the office of President Barack Obama's terrorism adviser John Brennan: "Some members of the LIFG [Al Qaeda's Libyan Islamic Fighting Group offshoot] in the past had connections with al Qaeda in Sudan, Afghanistan or Pakistan. Others dropped their relationship with al Qaeda entirely. It seems from their statements and support for establishing a democracy in Libya that this faction of LIFG does not support al Qaeda. We'll definitely be watching to see whether this is for real or just for show."
debkafile's military sources revealed Sunday, Aug. 28 that LIFG fighters had fought in the rebel capture of Tripoli on Sunday Aug. 21. Their commander, Abd Al-Hakim Belhadj, a veteran al Qaeda fighter from Afghanistan later extradited to Libya and held in prison there, had led the battle for the Qaddafi stronghold of Bab al-Aziziya two days later and has since proclaimed himself Commander of the Tripoli Military Council.

This confronts the US administration with the sole choice of accepting this fait accompli, especially after American reporters discovered in Muammar Qaddafi's abandoned intelligence headquarters files attesting to the former Libyan ruler's campaign against Al Qaeda's Libyan recruits and outside infiltrators. Those files contained a map charting the day to day movements of al Qaeda and other extremist Muslim operatives in the country and their current addresses.

They also found documentary evidence of the close reciprocal ties Qaddafi maintained with Western counter-terror agencies, sharing with them the data his agencies gathered on al Qaeda movements.
Until now, President Barack Obama dismissed Qaddafi's warnings that the rebellion which broke out against him in February would open the door for al Qaeda to seize power in Libya.

Our intelligence and counter-terror sources find the Brennan statement from the White House raised more questions than it answered:

Ah yeah, great!

I don't care honestly. I'm glassy eyed at any war story depicted on my LCD and/or TV. You realize these websites promote "hits" not "truth" right?

Next on the news... Pluto slams into Mars creating a supernova! Video at 10... back to you Tom!

Just so you know Al Qaeda is now attacking Algerian targets on the basis that they had been friendly with Gaddafi. Strange that Al Qaeda would be fighting on behalf of the Libyan Rebels...very strange indeed...

Oh, and Mars is doing just fine.

Still glassy eyed. Why, oh why.... you realize by watching it your feeding into it right? You can take this two ways. Metaphysical... mentally feeding into it. I don't buy into that. It might be true, who knows, I surely cant disprove it. Other way, the media shows you what you want to see to add revenue. Everyone knows how much superbowl commercials cost... they pay by the second....

Stop watching it.

What your saying makes no sense. There are very real people being killed, we should absolutely try and figure out why that is and if it is validated somehow or just plain wrong. If you don't care about the subject why spend the time telling people to look the other way while people die? People on this site spend time trying to put the pieces together from the scraps we get, it's what we do.

Very well said sir, that person was rambling on about off-topic crap anyway. The "scraps" we are presented from this story are disturbing and seem to make it fairly obvious certain rebel elements are made up of Al Qaeda terrorists and they clearly are intent on overtaking Libya. And once again terrorists are being backed and funded by western influences. It's completely absurd.

And the rebels are starting to show their true intentions, how nice of them.




BLOOMBERG NEWS - BLACKS ARE BEING TARGETED BY REBELS

Black Libyans and sub-Saharan Africans are being targeted by rebel fighters who suspect them of backing Muammar Qaddafi, Amnesty International said.

You make a very good point. If people are being killed over there, please god rest their souls. Wrong place at the wrong time.

Where are the widows, where are the men that lost boys, where is anyone? We are told what we are suppose to be told.

Face it. You are told what's going on.

Where are they, I dunno over there would be a good place to start looking. There are video's of bombing and dead people if you want to look them up. You know, I've never been to the other side of the world, how do I know it is even real, maybe the world is flat. I guess there has never even been war before. Who am I? What's going on? Does anything really exist?

Interesting that none of the msm have been interpreting some of the anti semitic chants and graffiti coming from the rebels in regards to Qaddafi's Jewish heritage.

This part of the article is infuriating:


2. How could the Obama administration subscribe to NATO placing British and French special forces at the forefront of the battle for the rebel conquest of Tripoli in direct violation of the UN Security Council confining NATO's intervention to air strikes - and only when they needed save civilian lives?

Our military experts stress that without those troops on the ground and NATO's constant aerial pounding of Qaddafi's forces, the rebels would never have taken the Libyan capital - or much else outside their home base of Benghazi.

I wonder why the rebels would have absolutely no chance without the help of NATO? Oh that's right...the majority of people are loyalists.

Then why the hell would Israel help the Rebels if they most likely knew Gaddafi was part Jewish?
