Lame Attempt To Shift Blame Away From U.S.-Backed Extremists

While the establishment media has engaged in a concerted effort to bury the fact that today’s attack on a U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was carried out by the same extremists the U.S. armed during the overthrow of Colonel Gaddafi, Libya’s Ambassador to Washington Ali Aujali launched his own lame attempt to shift the blame, ludicrously pointing the finger at Gaddafi loyalists.
“We know that Qaddafi’s associates are in Libya. Of course, they took this chance to infiltrate among the people,” Aujali said in today in an interview.
“His claim contradicts most reports, which place the blame on radical Islamist groups that claimed to be reacting to an obscure American film they viewed as insulting to Islam. Aujali said that the Libyan government has intelligence that unspecified Qaddafi forces were involved,” reports Foreign Policy.
For Aujiali to claim that the attack, which took place in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, was the work of Gaddafi loyalists, is a plainly absurd trick to manipulate the narrative behind the incident in a desperate bid to save face.
As Tony Cartalucci points out, the media’s failure to admit that the terrorists behind the attack are the same gangs of thugs armed and empowered by NATO represents “an attempt by the West to reestablish the perception that the US and Israel are at war with sectarian extremists, not partnered with them.”
Every indication points to the fact that the attack was carried out by Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists whom NATO supported during last year’s bombardment of Libya, the same bands of Salafists who have destroyed mosques and shrines across Libya and whose goal is to impose sharia law.
The storming of a U.S. Embassy in Egypt and the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi are confirmed to have been “coordinated attacks,” meaning the two groups behind the incidents were working together at some level.
Ludicrous it is therefore to suggest that Gaddafi loyalists were responsible given that when the mob in Cairo tore down the U.S. flag they replaced it with the Al-Qaeda flag while chanting “We are all Osama,” according to theAssociated Press.
This distinctive black flag with white Arabic lettering is the same one currently being flown by western-backed rebels in Syria and it is the same flag that was flown over courthouses and other centers of power in Benghazi following the execution of Gaddafi.
The terrorists in Benghazi also used some of the same weapons, including rocket-propelled grenades, that they were given by NATO powers during last year’s overthrow of Gaddafi.
While absolutely zero evidence suggests that Gaddafi loyalists, huge numbers of which were rounded up, tortured and executed by Libyan rebels, have anything to do with today’s events, every single fact confirms that the same thugs NATO supported in Libya were behind the assault.
The establishment’s desire to obscure the fact that western-backed terrorists are to blame for the violence is a transparent ploy to disguise the fact that NATO powers are brazenly arming and supporting radical extremist Muslims all over the Middle East and North Africa.
The goal is simple – to topple the last few remaining sovereign countries who have refused to allow their resources to be carved up and doled out between different corporate branches of the the military-industrial complex – while promulgating the myth that such aggressive acts of regime change represent an organic “Arab Spring,” when nothing could be further from the truth.
