Ex-Mujahedeen Help Lead Libyan Rebels WSJ
DARNA, Libya—Two former Afghan Mujahedeen and a six-year detainee at Guantanamo Bay have stepped to the fore of this city’s military campaign, training new recruits for the front and to protect the city from infiltrators loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi.  The article names:

* Abdel Hakim al-Hasady spent five years at a training camp in eastern Afghanistan, oversees the recruitment, training and deployment of about 300 rebel fighters from Darna.
* Salah al-Barrani, field commander is a former fighter from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group
* Sufyan Ben Qumu, a Libyan army veteran who worked for Osama bin Laden’s holding company in Sudan and later for an al Qaeda-linked charity in Afghanistan, is training many of the city’s rebel recruits.

UN, Obama Fighting Alongside Al-Qaeda in Libya New American
The Obama administration’s UN-backed military intervention against Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi is aiding al-Qaeda, which, according to media  reports citing high-level commanders in the terror group and Libyan rebel leaders, is deeply tied to the revolution. When the dust settles, the anti-American Islamic extremists could easily emerge as the new rulers of that nation, or at least a part of it. And al-Qaeda is already reportedly grabbing up advanced military weaponry there.

Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links
Mr al-Hasidi admitted he had earlier fought against “the foreign invasion” in Afghanistan, before being “captured in 2002 in Peshwar, in Pakistan”. He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008.

US and British government sources said Mr al-Hasidi 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.

Libyan rebel’s story shows links to Taliban, Al Qaeda, NATO LA Times
[…] But there are many unanswered questions about Libya’s anti-Kadafi forces, with at least 20 former Islamic militant leaders in battlefield roles, according to the rebel army, and hundreds of Islamists participating or watching from the sidelines. All speak of unity and brotherhood, but in the new state, will they be tempted by a once-in-a-lifetime chance to overpower Libya with a conservative Islamist vision?

Is LIFG al Qaeda? Yes.
Investigation into the rebel terrorists in Libya Above Top Secret
[…] The anti-Qaddafi Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) Merges with al Qaeda, 2007 The specific institutional basis for the recruitment of guerrilla fighters in northeastern Libya is associated with an organization which previously called itself the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG). During the course of 2007, the LIFG declared itself an official subsidiary of al Qaeda, later assuming the name of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). As a result of this 2007 merger, an increased number of guerrilla fighters arrived in Iraq from Libya.

According to Felter and Fishman, “The apparent surge in Libyan recruits traveling to Iraq may be linked the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group’s (LIFG) increasingly cooperative relationship with al-Qaeda, which culminated in the LIFG officially joining al-Qaeda on November 3, 2007.”8 This merger is confirmed by other sources: A 2008 statement attributed to Ayman al-Zawahiri claimed that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group has joined al-Qaeda.

  1. Stupid ass mistake.

  2. All I can say is wow. The tail wagging the dog?

  3. Libya was always going to be trashed by the US in some way or other. Its about resources and not about human rights violations. They are merely a suitable cover story to ease the whole idea past the peoples scrutiny. After 9/11 anything goes with the assassins in power.
    Now the dog is out of the kennel what changes do you think that news will induce? I can tell you now that nothing will be done to remove this criminal from power. Be warned that sometimes the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know.
    I didn’t particularly trust Gadhaffi but at least he was consistent in trying to protect his country from terrorists. Now the US has let them loose in Tripoli.

  4. With the help of the UN and the NATO forces.

  5. This is breaking my heart. Poor Tripoli! There was no justification for NATO’s bombing and overthrow of Gadhaffi. The anti-war community pleaded with the world to stop its irrational attack. We warned you that NATO was installing Al Qaeda forces and Islamic radicals who have one single objective: To force Islamic Shariah law on the people of Libya, who have enjoyed some of the greatest freedoms, the best record on women’s rights and opportunities for women in education and the job market, of any Arab country. NATO forced itself on the helpless people of LIbya. And now NATO’s waking up to the truth. Sarkozy and Obama and Cameron and Bersculoni have invited a monster to rule over Tripoli. Quelle domage!

  6. Couldn’t have said it any better. Now the thing is what can we do about it? By the way that is a serious question. If we are to stop this tyranny then we need to have a plan of action. Problem is you can bet your life that the elites are watching even this site and registering every keystroke made. So any plans will be forwarned to them befire they come to fuition. Bit of a mess really.
    Maybe there is a solution though?

  7. Or then again an explanation may be in order?

  8. The Great Manmade River Water Project – in Libya Don’t hear much about that in the West.

  9. Pingback: Motvallsbloggen » Irak igår – Libyen idag?

  10. No you won’t because is pro Gadhaffi and not anti. It was one of the things he had built for his people so they could have water. It was also paid for without a loan from the World Bank or any other outside source.
    And they (Western leaders with lots to lose like their credibility as leaders) say he’s an evil corrupt leader?

    Kettle and teapot spring readily to mind.

    • The fact that COTO member s are so 1-sided on this issue tells me there is a bigger bias than just defending one of the wrold’s worst terrorists.

      Why defend the actions of Moammar Gadhafi? Maynbe COTO thinks he is just a humanitarian that is being slandered by 99.99% of the world? Poor guy can’t catch a break.

  11. Ah the Affiliate returns. Not content to bad mouth everyone over 9/11 you have to discredit anyone who even suggests that someone else has done something of worth for their country, regardless of the fact that in my earlier posting on this subject I did state that I didn’t necessarily trust him but you have neatly decided to ignore that fact. Gets more effect from the cheap seats when your selective with the truth.
    Instead you prefer to support the party line of those with most to gain. Does it come with side benefits? I doubt they will even give you a sideways glance when they take over totally but hey ho what do I know. Apparently nothing according to you.
    I have to question you authority to condemn myself and other people though simply because we have alternative opinions to yours. But then its pretty obvious really. You only visit this site to stir trouble and insult people because its easy to attack those that are not really looking for a fight with you or anyone else as it happens. Merely having a chat about stuff and sharing information. Please feel free to continue your patronage though. Whilst your busy slagging me off because I choose to pay attention to detail you’ll be too busy to bother anyone else. So do crack on and get it out of your system whilst the offers there.
    Meantime you might like to ponder the meaning of freedom of choice. After all it is clearly something that scares you otherwise you wouldn’t be attacking me, a believer in and of freedom choice (to believe whatever the hell I like without let or hinderance from people like you).
    Have a nice day my friend.

  12. Webster, you called this one from the start. Kudos!
