(ANTIMEDIA) Hillary Clinton’s leaked emails, the gifts that keep on giving, have revealed some horrifying facts about the potential future president — just days after Wikileaks founder Julian Assange announced that Clinton is funded by the same money that funds ISIS.
Hillary Clinton was also well aware that she was assisting radical Islamists, including al-Qaeda, in their rise to power in Libya in 2011.
On March 27, 2011, Clinton received a confidential memo from confidant Sidney Blumenthal with the subject line “Re: Lots of new intel; Libyan army possibly on verge of collapse.” The confidant explained that “radical/terrorist” groups had been infiltrating the National Libyan Council (NLC), a proposed puppet government supported by France’s Nicolas Sarkozy. Clinton was warned that al-Qaeda could become a major player in the region.
The memo stated:
“This situation has become increasingly frustrating for French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who, according to knowledgeable individuals, is pressing to have France emerge from this crisis as the principal foreign ally of any new government that takes power. Sarkozy is also concerned about continuing reports that radical/terrorist groups such as the Libyan Fighting Groups and Al Qa’ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) are infiltrating the NLC and its military command. Accordingly, he asked sociologist who has long established ties to Israel, Syria, and other B6 nations in the Middle East, to use his contacts to determine the level of influence AQIM and other. terrorist groups have inside of the NLC. Sarkozy also asked for reports setting out a clear picture of the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in the rebel leadership…”
Further, Clinton aide Jake Sullivan sent Clinton a full list of known “Libyan emissaries” and identified the true beneficiary of the fall of Muammar Gaddafi:
“The Qadhafi regime has also met with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood leadership in Egypt. According to Qadhafi chief of staff Fouad Zlitni, the Muslim Brotherhood asserts that TNC may be the political leadership of the opposition, but the real power lies with the Libyan Brotherhood and they are apparently willing to bide their time. The Qadhafi regime also offered to send senior tribal leaders to Benghazi to negotiate with the TNC, but the TNC rejected the proposal.”
Clinton’s decision to forward the email on can be accepted as her tacit acknowledgment of its contents.
Furthermore, almost anyone inside or outside the establishment should have been aware of the radical element of the Libyan revolution, as a Libyan rebel commander went on record as early as March 2011 to state that his fighters included jihadists who fought against American forces in Iraq. At the time, these fighters were referred to as al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), which is now referred to as ISIS.
Reports of this kind give credence to Gaddafi’s own claim, as expressed in a private phone call with former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair in 2011, when he stated:
“[T]here is no bloodshed and there is no fighting, come and see for yourself. People are spreading rumours through the TV stations. Those people are from Guantanamo, we know them by name, they support Al Qaeda – do you support Al Qaeda?”
Clinton certainly appears to.
