CIA Asset Joins Islamic State in Libya — Abdelhakim Belhadj Worked with U.S. and NATO to Overthrow Gaddafi 

Abdelhakim Belhadj has reportedly joined forces with the Islamic State, according to the journalist Sara Carter. Belhadj is a former al-Qaeda operative who was a key player in the overthrow of Moammar Gaddafi. He worked directly with the U.S. and NATO.

Kyle Shideler writes for The Washington Times:

If Belhadj has gone over to Islamic State, it will represent a major boost to Islamic State’s efforts to co-opt and bring in Libya’s existing jihadist forces under their banner, which now reportedly includes as many as 3,000 fighters. Belhadj’s forces play a significant role in the Islamist “Libyan Dawn” coalition (which includes the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda’s Ansar al-Sharia), which currently holds Tripoli, and which claims to be the rightful government in opposition to the U.N. recognized government of Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni.

The Islamic State in Libya is based in Derna, a city in the northeast part of the country. In 2001, it represented “one of the greatest concentrations of jihadi terrorists to be found anywhere in the world, and by some measures can be regarded as the leading source of suicide bombers anywhere on the planet,” according to Webster Tarpley.

    I have seen it coming, and I have seen some “beta test” on the creating of an positive consensuss regading IS(Whatever)/FSA/Alwhatever and so on, in the Norce MSM.
    I think they will do an last atemt to somehow legitimise their exsistence as an “legitimate” oposittion to the Assad Gov. in Syria.

    And dont forgett the few dropplest we are getting fom the Ujrainian war theater, where the UssA/the tribe is feading the same Jihadits as they have done since Tunis/Libya/Egypt (aka litle Israel, is my name on the present Egypt), and Balkan wars.
    Flown in by the West.
    isnt it woundeull how bizar everything have becomed, and they whine about people like us been “conspiracy nutts”, while the truth is far more out than what even I could imagine, but now things, kicks into place, fragments is becomed clear paterns.

    They are loosing it in Syria, thats the reason for the latest escalation, and they are loosing it to the Iraqi people and their freinds, with Iran as a leading light in this mess.
    I hope they will wipe the scum from the face of this earth.
    Not lett anything be left, and give no mercy, since no mercy was given, its self defence Iraqis, even our Creatore understands the difference, treat your brothers and sister with utmoust respect, even the enemy, but the mercs is just to execute at spott.
    WE all can be temporarly blinded by our everyday life, some fooled and some lie to, and even Preatchers point in horrendus directions and tells them its their duty and show of faith to kill a fellow man/woman.
    All lies and forgerys.
    There is no SIN more foul or evil, than to kill another human begin, execpt in self defence, thats the ONLY execption to the rule.
    NEVER, EVER, Forgett That.
    YOU will Pay for it, be shure, and the punishment, is for an enternety in the dark.

    Have that in mind before you judge anyone Musliams/Arabs, even your enemy.
    And as sayed, mercy, is the utmoust confirmation of an man/woman of wisdom and self esteem, to forgive/reconsile, is the ultimate sign of an Worrier of Peace.
    Hate is so mutch easyer to tend to, than Love.
    If you give mercy, you shal recive mercy, the day you need it, and its writen in stone, dont forgett this.
    He knows everything.
    Fear not Him, Hes a God of compasion and mercy, fear your self, because its YOU whom is the bearer of the ultimate force in our universe, free will, the gift to humans from our Creatore.
    How you utelise it, is entirly yours, the consequencess of it, entirly yours.

    You reap what you saw, it goes both ways.
    Love life, respect everything and treat lightly.
