Phil Butler -- Arab Spring: The Fall of All Freedom

Arab Spring: The Fall of All Freedom
Column: Politics
Region: Middle East
Country: Libya

The United States of America leads western allies in an unholy war on not just the Arab world, but against any nation that stands in the way of total domination. The evidence of an underlying master plan grows more prevalent each day. No one seems to have characterized what the ends of this campaign will look like, but the stunningly diabolical strategy the Bush and Obama presidencies undertook are there for all to see. Here is a window into the greatest power play in history.
I was a bit surprised this morning, when I came to the realization Libya’s Muammar Mohammed Abu Minyar Gaddafi was among the richest men who ever lived. Experts now claim that Gaddafi was worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 billion dollars when US backed rebels tortured and killed him in October of 2011. Though I understood how Obama and Hillary Clinton had played a role in his death, I had originally discounted rumors and speculation he was killed over his billions, and over his leaning away from the dollar as a preferred international exchange medium were boundless. Today I discover Executive Order 13566 for the first time, and Gaddafi’s death makes all the more sense in the overall context. As it turns out, the Libyan leader was among the richest on Earth, and the plan to do away with him originated at the highest levels of world leadership. What’s more, a clear and systematic sequence of events can be linked, a chain of evidence leads to the White House and beyond. Executive Order 13566 was executed February 25th, 2011, just eight days after major protests broke out against Gaddafi’s government. The order reads in part:
“I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that Colonel Muammar Qadhafi, his government, and close associates have taken extreme measures against the people of Libya, including by using weapons of war, mercenaries, and wanton violence against unarmed civilians.  I further find that there is a serious risk that Libyan state assets will be misappropriated by Qadhafi, members of his government, members of his family, or his close associates if those assets are not protected.”

On this same day Stuart Levey, the Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence who drafted Executive Order 13566, put in action the plan to sequester billions stored in banks around the U.S. Once US embassy personnel had been evacuated from Libya, Obama’s people sprung into action with the help of bank employees who had been waiting through the night. In all, some $30 billion in cash and liquid assets were seized. As of the Summer of 2015, Gaddafi assets in the amount of $60 billion had been seized by banks in the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom. These funds are now in limbo, as a nebulous leadership of the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) hides amid a shadowy world of global financiers. To be blunt, the Gaddafi billions pay no benefit to the people of Libya, but only to the bankers and speculators who leveraged the funds originally. $60 billion in “loans” let’s say, may never be called in. At least this is a layman’s way of understanding what is going on. Today multi-billion dollar lawsuits against the likes of Hillary Clinton supporters Goldman Sachs, infighting over who is in control of the LIA, and countless under the table dealings further darken what was and is a monumental stain on US international relationships. If this were the 1930s and mafia land, there would be newspaper headlines accusing Barack Obama of committing a heist on behalf of Wall Street. And the more evidence that crosses WikiLeaks wires, the more clear Arab Spring’s real goals become. In one of the most bizarre geo-political catastrophes ever, a British court may well decide who is in charge of Gaddafi’s billions. The horde that the Obama White House said belonged to the people of Libya, currently belongs on bankers’ balance sheets. These banking and investment ties betray the more militaristic geo-policy being played by the Obama White House.
The American, British, and EU leadership have been busy as bees fueling chaos in the Arab world. As a by product, the refugee and west versus east mess that blazes now further inhibit peace and prosperity. It took me all of 10 seconds to find linkages and curiosities via WikiLeaks. This cable from 2008 reveals the UK government sanctioning three Libyan Islamists from an organization known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), a group known to have attempted the assassination of Gaddafi, in order to install a more fundamentally extremist regime. Interestingly, the US was not sought as a co-sponsor for labeling three members terrorists under United Nations Security Council resolution 1267. Of particular interest is a man named Maftah Mohamed ElMabruk, a key member of LIFG, now an Al Qaeda cell group, who was protected by the British previously. The names and alleged complicity in terror in this document stand in stark contrast to the fact three Libyan terrorists were later found to be supplying arms to the Syrian opposition of the regime of Bashar al-Assad. As it turned out, the LIFG, working on behalf of the Libyan Islamist Abel Hakim Belhadj, was being run by none other than Britain’s Blair and MI6.
It was the LIFG that MI6 used to carry out several operations inside Libya, including the 1996 attempt to assassinate Colonel Qaddafi. The group originated alongside al-Qaeda inside Afghanistan, about the time US policymakers lured the USSR into that country in what Carter administration National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski bragged: “We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war.” American policy having come full circle, it’s crystal clear the American people have been totally misled. The useless struggles of the past are now ushered into the spotlight. What’s even more contemptible is the fact the EU is moving to restore valididity for these jihadists. This story tells of one UN sanctioned LIFG operative named Abdulbasit Abdulrahim being supported by the same EU refugees now pour into. Whether or not Abdulrahim was a member of the LIFG or not, the idea the US can make someone a terrorist one minute, and that the same terrorist is redeemed by the EU the next, it speaks volumes for any argument against paranoid security states. The Bush and Obama administrations have pushed the boundaries of believability into the stratosphere.
The overthrow of Gaddafi by the American administration, with the help of the United Nations, will go down in history as the kindling of the most catastrophic foreign policy scheme in history. The evidence surfacing now can only lead us to one conclusion. Take the fact the former head of the LIFG, Norman Benotman is currently the president of Quillam Foundation in London, and the fact he was in Tripoli working with the British government at the time of Gaddafi’s demise, attest to the dastardly and deep game of subterfuge affecting us all. Benotman Tweets today, in prolific and cryptic 140 characters that appear insane, or at best unbalanced. Without delving into this character’s mysterious past, suffice it to point out that Quilliam was established in 2007 by Ed Husain, Maajid Nawaz and Rashad Zaman Ali, three former members of the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir. Named for the controversial  William Quilliam, the society is based on the concept of a global caliphate, its namesake having sworn allegiance to the Ottoman Empire. Though the Quilliam organization appears outwardly to be a shill puppet of Britain’s anti-extremist Islam operation, some experts wonder if the organization is not operating in a “duality” of purpose. Either way, the intended goals of LIFG have been well served by Benotman and other assets. From my perspective as a dissenter to the mainstream propaganda, simply discovering Quilliam’s founding father is Maajid Nawaz, Op-Ed master at the ubiquitous tabloid The Daily Beast, is enough to categorize the organization as part of the problem, and no the solution to world chaos. Ties in between Nawaz, the Next Gen Foundation Quilliam shares offices with in the US, and ultimately former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, they whisper “double agent” to me. This is only speculative on my part though. I won’t start connecting the dots that lead to Google, the Clinton Foundation, and the neoconservative lifelines holding up Clinton for President either. Our whole system becomes suspect, as certainly it must.
Finally, this WikiLeaks revelation further amplifies the Obama administration’s duplicity in Gaddafi’s remise. Hillary Clinton’s staff was closely monitoring the effects the Obama bank seizures were having on the Gaddafi government. Now that the greater interest in Gaddafi billions by the likes of Clinton fans Goldman Sachs has come to light, one has to wonder at the former Secretary of State’s interests. Were these billions earmarked like other Clinton business focused directives? WikiLeaks is an evidence treasure trove on Clinton opportunism, one that only recently showed her conflict of interest where places like Libya and corporate business are concerned. It seems fair to predict that these American leaders, their counterparts in London, may soon be under indictment for more than just illegal email servers. Clinton appeared more interested in Gaddafi gold than in a peaceful resolution for Libya. I quote from her communiqué of April 1, 2011, just after President Obama seized upwards of $60 billion:
“On April 2, 2011 sources with access to advisors to Salt al-Islam Qaddafi stated in strictest confidence that while the freezing of Libya’s foreign bank accounts presents Muammar Qaddafi with serious challenges, his ability to equip and maintain his armed forces and intelligence services remains intact. According to sensitive information available to this these individuals, Qaddafi’s government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver. During late March, 2011 these stocks were moved to SABHA (south west in the direction of the Libyan border with Niger and Chad); taken from the vaults of the Libyan Central Bank in Tripoli.”
Is the United States of America assuming the role of Imperialist super-nation? Based on what I’ve learned in the last three years, this was always our role. Spreading democracy and the “American Way” was once something most of my countrymen would have been proud to live, work, fight and die for. Unfortunately for the brave souls interred at Arlington Cemetery, democracy had nothing whatever to do with our leadership’s goals. Gaddafi was portrayed for us, from the Potomac to studios in Hollywood, as an arch villain US Navy Seals should snuff out. Libya was always he rogue, with Tom Clancy novels and blockbuster movies tightly focused, so Americans would turn a blind eye when the time came.
Well, the time has come. The Middle East is a hornet’s nest, one overflowing onto the shores of once peaceful and prosperous nations. Russia is being forced to rearm, China has gone from a touted globalization partner into a big red scary enemy again. In Europe the rightist rational is being fed a new human fodder, Muslims who can take the place of Jews as the next holocaust is set in motion. Barack Obama won the Novel Peace Prize as a joke, as a test, for the elites to jab at their protectorate – and when we did not laugh out loud they knew for sure – the world was ripe for the picking. Is Barack Obama to blame for a coming World War III? He is until those really underneath are brought to justice.
We are witness to the fall, the fall of the ideal of freedom.
