Listen to this interview with Mike Baker, former CIA officer on Fox News. What he says in substance confirms the doubts and apprehensions that I have had concerning the events in Libya. On that subject, see my earlier posts here and here. Well, you don’t need a Ph.D. in geo-politics to understand that the West is backing the wrong side, taken for granted that its real intention is to encourage democracy. It is a known fact that Al-Qaeda was and is still active in the east part of Libya. Furthermore, as I wrote before, Libya shares a border with Sudan, which sees its north part controlled by Islamists. Baker is commenting here on a statement made by a senior member of Al-Qaeda who encouraged the rebels to keep up the fight against Gaddafi. Please note that Gaddafi was supposed to be an ally of the West until recently and that Al-Qaeda managed to get their hands in Libya on some weaponry, namely surface-to-air missiles, in their progression to propagate « democracy ». Also, check as well this article of the Telegraph UK in which we read that the rebel leader, Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, declared that jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines in Libya against Gaddafi’s regime. So who are we, the West, backing? The rebels of course. But who are the rebels? If you open your eyes and your ears, you have roughly all the answers here.
