[quote:Anonymous Coward 31243632:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM1NjczMjY3XzlFMDBBMEJE] [quote:insertfunnyusername:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM1NjY3NzQyXzY4OTU0QUJD] [quote:DarbyDoom:MV8yMDI0NTkwXzM1NjY3NTgyX0M3QTREMURF] 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... [/quote] Libya, the epic fail that keeps on giving. Weren't the jihadi's asking for other 2 ministries some time back too? Did they get them? Do you keep any of your Libya threads still active? [/quote] They were given three. Rami's tweets from today were even worse. I copied them onto MilMan's World at War thread. He tweeted that the Islamists are "consuming" Libya. I've followed him 4 months (maybe a year?) and he's the calming voice who dispels rumors...If he's (finally) saying Islamists are taking over, it's over... I contacted 2 tweeters who are associated w/ US State Department. I got no response from one & the other guy said Libya is a mess and then asked me out.... I didn't keep my Libyan threads active & I deleted most of the best posts after I learned that there were credible death threats against George Grant, Asma al-Magariaf, and David Bachmann. I had quoted them extensively and I didn't want to put them in more danger...(I feared my posts might remain around after the tweets were no longer readily accessible). Asma has three very young children in Tripoli. I don't want to put anyone at risk with stuff I put on GLP. I think Rami is safe - his family is so well connected & I think they are quite wealthy. If I had any indication that he was in danger I wouldn't post his tweets either. Libya is far worse than anything you're reading in MSM. There are nightly assassinations. Police & security people are literally afraid to go to work. The only thing that's working well is the oil sector (surprise). Despite all the issues, Libyan students are deeply involved in trying to help their country. Many Libyans are still talking (rather than fighting). It's not too late (yet)... But what do I know?

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.
