Documents expose intimate ties between Libyan torturers and CIA, MI6

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Monday September 05, 2011 13:13author by Peter Symonds - International Committee of the Fourth International (ICFI) Report this post to the editors

Peter Symonds analyses the reports of dovuments found in Gadaffis security chiefs office. Peter concludes that they show that NATO was in cahoots with Gadaffi until shortly before they started bombing Libya.

A hoard of secret documents uncovered in the Tripoli offices of Libya’s External Security Organisation on Friday has exposed the lie that NATO began bombing Libya for humanitarian reasons or has moved to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi because of concerns over his regime’s abuse of democratic rights.

British and American intelligence agencies maintained the closest ties with the Gaddafi regime and collaborated in the interrogation and torture of Islamist suspects that they had detained in other countries and “rendered” to Libya. Having relied on Gaddafi’s police state for their own purposes, Washington and London only turned on their former ally as a means of containing and countering revolutionary upheavals in the Middle East and North Africa and to obtain tighter control of Libyan oil by installing a client regime.

Wikileaks confirm Libyas request for detainees.

Sawani said he was not sure what the legal basis for the continued incarceration of the returned detainees is. He explained that, in general, if a detainee was wanted on specific charges under Libyan law, he would be detained and debriefed by security organizations, and then transferred to judicial authorities to face legal charges

The Colonel collaborates with the US against Iran.

On concerns about possible future attempts by Iran to
procure new uranium stocks, including perhaps from Libya, Tajuri
emphatically said there was "absolutely no possibility" that
Libya would sell its stockpile of natural uranium yellowcake ore
to Iran.

And Libya wanted US weapons.

Libyan MOD and security officials intended to shift away from purchasing military equipment from Russia and former Soviet republics because U.S. military hardware was seen as being technically superior and because they believed the recently implemented U.S.-Libya claims compensation agreement had paved the way for purchasing lethal weapons from the U.S. in the near future. Muatassim told Fituri the public discussion of large-scale weapons purchases before and during al-Qadhafi's October visit to Moscow, Minsk and Kiev were intended to "prompt competition for Libya's military business". (Note: Al-Qadhafi gave similar remarks to media during his stop in Kiev. End note.)
