In the wake of the wholesale destruction of the Libyan town of Sirte by al-Qaeda affiliated rebels and NATO, the National Transitional Council has announced it captured Moammar Gaddafi, who was supposedly wounded after a NATO attack. AFP provided a photograph that appeared to show him wounded or dead.
Reuters reported that the ousted Libyan leader had died of his wounds, citing a senior NTC military official. “He was also hit in his head,” the official said. “There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.”
Officials said Gaddafi was trying to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked.
Others say Gaddafi was found in a hole and begged not to be killed. Iraq’s toppled leader Saddam Hussein was also allegedly found in a hole by invading U.S. soldiers in December of 2003. Hussein was later executed.
Prior the announced and unconfirmed death of Gaddafi, Secretary of State Clinton ventured Libya and called for his murder. “We hope he can be captured or killed soon so that you don’t have to fear him any longer,” Clinton told an orchestrated gathering of students at a “town hall-style gathering” in Tripoli, the Detroit Free Press reported on October 19.
Clinton’s public call for assassination is described as unusual.
In 1986, then president Reagan attacked Libya and attempted to kill Gaddafi. The plan contrived by the CIA killed between 40 and 100 Libyan civilians and resulted in the destruction of the French embassy.
Assassination is hardly a new tactic for the United States. The CIA has plotted over the years the murder of dozens of people deemed politically unacceptable to the establishment, including president Nasser of Egypt, Costa Rican president Jose Figueres, Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic, French president Charles de Gaulle, and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, among others.

“I am proud to stand here on the soil of a free Libya,” Clinton said. “The United States was proud to stand for you in your fight for freedom and we will continue to stand with you as you continue this journey.”
Libya’s “journey” includes a humanitarian crisis due to NATO’s bombing of the country. The Red Cross and others were overwhelmed with demands for food, hospital supplies, and other aid for the hundreds of thousands of Libya civilians affected by the conflict, ABC in Australia reported in August.
In September, NATO’s al-Qaeda rebels were accused of committing unlawful killings and torture, Amnesty International said in a report. Numerous reports of racist attacks against black Libyans and foreign workers emerged, as did accusations of rape.
Now that Gaddafi is reportedly out of the way, the globalist plan to reduce one of the wealthiest nations in Africa to squalor and dependence on IMF and World Bank neoliberal loan sharks and the ravages of international bankers can move forward.
Prior to the invasion Libya was considered the Switzerland of the African continent with advanced health and education systems available to all citizens.
“The objective of the NATO bombings from the outset was to destroy the country’s standard of living, its health infrastructure, its schools and hospitals, its water distribution system,” Michel Chossudovsky wrote in September. “An entire nation has been bombed with the most advanced ordnance, including uranium coated ammunition.”
Clinton’s journey for Libya is one of misery and submission to the global dictates of the bankers. Libya can now share the fate of Iraq and other nations that dared go against the dictates of the globalists.
Now that the mission is finished in Libya, the elite can turn their attention on Iran.
