These Jihadis would have to travel quite a distance undiscovered to get there. From a military point of view they had no means of re-supply if they had to depend upon Mali either especially since they had no air cover. All this would lead me to the conclusion that more than likely they came from Libya or were depending on re-supply from there at the very least. [/quote] Anything is possible imo, islamists pretty much rule the whole desert in many countries there through various interconnected jihadi groups. [/quote] Rami el-Obeidi - former head of NTC Intelligence (Libya's provisional government) is tweeting that Jihadist may have come from base in Libya & that Belmokhtar has visited Libya at least twice. He tweeted to several reporters that jihadists have been using Libya's MOD (Ministry of Defense) for cover for their training camps & operations in Libya. He's a civilian now - bit he is very connected in Libya - I trust his tweets... Here a breaking updates on BBC re: Algerian crisis - 1654: Algerian TV channel TV3 has broadcast footage of weapons purportedly seized from kidnappers at the In Amenas gas plant, including Kalashnikov rifles, machine guns, a pile of ammunition and rocket propelled grenades, BBC Monitoring reports. 1645: Algerian army operations since Thursday have killed 29 militants, including four "emirs", or leaders, the Algerian El Watan news site reports. It names them as Abul Rahman al-Nigeri, Lamine Moucheneb, alias Taher, Abu Albaraa Al-Jazairi and Mauritanian Abdallahi Ould Hmeida. The original group of kidnappers is thought to have been around 30 strong and composed of different nationalities. Al-Nigeri was previously reported as the head of the operation... (See Longwar journal). He is from Niger. I believe the other two are Algerians, and then, according to BBC, a Mauritanian. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-21073655?ocid=socialflow_twitter_africa [/quote]
Background - About a year ago, I stumbled on a website run by a group of students in France. They represented an organization called the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA is its initials in French).
I kept up with their movement to establish an independent Taureg state in Northern Mali. As I followed their statements and the occasional MSM article, it became apparent that something was not quite right. These kids were being set up. I came to believe that I was watching Western intelligence operation to create the pretext for Western intervention in Africa (in other words, I was watching a "false flag" war in the making)...
By early October, the yellow journalism building the case for war was undeniable...So, I decided to create this thread. Using MSM news sources (with occasional commentary posts) I tried to give the background on what is happening in Mali & why it might be happening....
Thanks for reading - Here is my original post...
Who do I root for?
Foreign jihadists from Sudan and Western Sahara pour into northern Mali
HUNDREDS of jihadist fighters, mainly from Sudan and Western Sahara, arrived in northern Mali over the weekend to support the Islamist groups ahead of a threatened regional intervention, witnesses and a security source say.
