On Friday, the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, and members of more than 30 other nations meet in Istanbul, Turkey, and announced they have granted al-Qaeda and the so-called rebels in Libya full diplomatic recognition.
“I am announcing today that, until an interim authority is in place, the United States will recognize the TNC as the legitimate governing authority for Libya,’’ said Clinton.
The TNC, or Transitional National Council, is dominated by the the Haribi tribe of northeastern Libya. Both Abdel Mustafa Jalil and Abdel Fatah Younis – routinely paraded around by the corporate media as Libya’s new leaders – are from the Haribi tribe. A 2007 West Point study concluded that the tribe is rife with al-Qaeda and actively killed U.S. troops in Iraq. See Webster Tarpley on this, here.
Peter Dale Scott has also written about the rebels, specifically the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and its connection to the CIA and its war against the Soviets in Afghanistan. The LIFG was created by British and U.S. intelligence to assassinate Gaddafi.
According to Yoichi Shimatsu, writing for New American Media, the LIFG is “the most radical element in the Al Qaeda network.”
Naturally, you hear nothing about al-Qaeda and the rebels from the New York Times or the crown jewel of Operation Mockingbird, the Washington Post.
Instead, the corporate media insistsGaddafi and al-Qaeda will wage a holy war against the United States.
Clinton announced yesterday that the United States has recognized as the legitimate government of Libya a CIA created terrorist group it has waged a fake war against for almost a decade.
Of course, the Taliban eventually became the enemy. It was planned that way because war against manufactured enemies is forever the same way it was in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty Four. In the book, the Ministry of Peace explains that war is perpetual.
Oceania is at war with Eastasia. Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.
