The crisis in #Libya is still unfolding. The latest is this: the Libyan government gives families a $500/yr grant. For the poorest of families, this is their one big windfall to last them through the year. But there’s a problem. The Civil Registration Authority (CRA), which…
… gives out national ID numbers & cards, has oh-so-miraculously discovered that it somehow issued a million or so fake ID numbers to persons unknown (yeah, right 🙄). This was clearly a mechanism for *somebody* 👀 to rob even more money from the Central Bank of #Libya (CBL)…
… which is an even bigger problem, b/c the CBL is the fiscal custodian of the #Libya’n Investment Authority’s billions of dollars of funds — which are partially “frozen” (read: probably stolen) by foreign powers. People (yours truly) have been saying, “Good Lord, look at the…

I have stood under a podium on which Gaddafi conducted a news conference where I asked him the first question, at an event just outside of Tripoli in 1996. Tell me, did you meet or report on Gaddafi?
In 1996, I was a Reuters correspondent in #Cairo. I went to #Libya to cover the 27th anniversary of the “Green Revolution.”I don’t have access to the Reuters articles I wrote from #Libya but here are some opeds I’ve written about Gaddafi the dictator and the hypocrisy of the West
#Gaddafi’s quirks should never have distracted from his abysmal human rights record. Arbitrary arrests, a muzzled press, a ban on political parties and the squandering of #Libya's oil wealth have never been laughing matters for Libyans.…

I was very happy with this news Saif Islam #Gaddafi It is time for the people of #Libya to achieve peace & justice. The illegal invasion by US-led coaliation/Nato in 2011, has only managed to destroy Libya since they killed the great leader Muammar Gaddafi
1. In this Thread I present evidence of the 2011 invasion of Libya to date, proofs that the invasion of Libya was based on lies proofs that since the US invasion of Libya the atrocities of the war have caused one of the worst human tragedies in the country
2. 7. In this Thread I present evidence of the 2011 invasion of Libya to date, proofs that the death of Gaddafi & his son was the biggest mistake in African history, proofs whose was involved & why, proofs of Libya Today: From Arab Spring to failed state

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

1) #NicolasSarkozy was #France’s president 2007-2012, was arrested & is being questioned about his illegally financed campaign by #Gaddafi in #Libya, some backstory.

How did Sarkozy go from accepting #illegal cash to advocating overthrow?

2) A total of $50m was funneled. And it wasn't done via wire transfer. Franco-Lebanese businessman Ziad Takkiedine claims he carried suitcases full of cash in 2006 and 2007.

$50m is double the legal campaign limit in France.…

#Sarkozy is a corrupt #swamp rat. He's been dogged by corruption claims forever. A simple search will show a laundry list.

👁‍🗨(1) “When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions” -Shakespeare
You’ve heard the name a lot lately it’s “MI6” and one of its former spies compiled the #TrumpDossier but perhaps we’ve forgotten our history with them? Hint: WMD’s
(2) In 2003 an American whistleblower from the U.N named Scott Ritter came forward and claimed that MI6 had a campaign to exaggerate the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. it was called #OperationMassAppeal and it’s intent was to “shake up public opinion”
(3) #OperationMassAppeal depended on using non-actionable intelligence and spoon feeding it to the media. It was a disinformation campaign run by MI6 against Iraq. In 1998 it was leaked to press in Washington and then suddenly vanished.
