Canard Enchaine accuses Paris and Washington of murdering Kadhafi
October 26, 2011
“Kaddafi condemned to death by Paris and Washington” is the title of an article published in today’s Le Canard Enchaîné, on page 3 by its editor Claude Angeli. The large title is followed by the following subtitle : “Obama and Sarkozy did not want him alive fearing that he speaks too much during a court case at the International Criminal Court.”
The article confirms all our suspicions that Kaddafi was murdered consciously by the US and France. Wednesday October 19th towards the end of the afternoon, a Pentagon colonel phoned one of his correspondents at the French secret services. In charge of the Kaddafi dossier, one of the present priorities of Obama’s team of generals, the American told him that the Libyan head of state, tracked closely by Predator US drones, is caught in an area of the city of Syrta and that it is now, impossible, to miss him. He adds that letting this guy live would transform him into a “true atomic bomb.” His contact understands by this that the White House had given its verdict, which was to avoid giving Kaddafi “an international podium which his capture would add up to.”
Since several days the French and American special forces were hunting down Kaddafi. In Paris, at the Centre for Planning and Operations Command (CPCO), at the Direction of Military Intelligence (DRM), at the action service of the DGSE, several officers had evaluated the number of members of the special operations command, present in Syrta, to some 50. Their mission included dealing with the Libyan guide and the members of his family. Or, the formula used by the DGSE, “deliver the package to the foxo: and create the conditions where Kadhafi cannot escape to those hunting him down.
Since mid October the Elysee knew that Kaddafi and one of his sons had taken refuge in Syrta and Sarkozy put his personal chief of staff, Benoit Puga, in charge of supervising the hunt of the former dictator. At the DGSE, as at the DRM, there was no moral difficulty to talk about the “physical elimination” of the Libyan head of state, contrary to the more polite formulas being used at the Elysée, according to an advisor to the president.
“The death penalty was not part of the UN resolutions which allowed NATO to intervened,” said a French diplomat ironically. “But we should not be hypocritical. Several times, French and British airplanes attempted to liquidate Kaddafi, bombarding certain of his hide outs, in Tripoli, or destroying one his offices. During a judgement at the International Penal Court: this new friend of the West, could have recalled his excellent relations with the CIA or the French services, the help he gave to the African friends of France, and the contracts he had offered to this one or that one. Perhaps even worse things.”
On October 20th at 8:30 am, the target was about to be reached. Three NATO planes approached Syrta. Nothing to do with a random mission: a column of some 75 vehicles was fleeing the city at high speed. An American Predator drone shot its rockets. A reconnaissance Mirage F1CR, followed by a Mirage 2000 D shot two, laser guided bombs, GBU-12s of 225 kgs, each. Results: 21 vehicles destroyed and Kaddafi only wounded.
Members of French special forces are present on the spot. The story doesn’t say at what distance from what will happen, and which an officer of military intelligence recounts with abundance of details: He was captured alive by overexcited warriors. The crowd is screaming full lunds “Allah Akbar !” threatens him with their arms and start lynching while other warriors who have difficulties getting on top of the situation, cry that he has to be kept alive.

The New York Times today confirmed that the night before Muammar Qaddafi was assassinated by a NATO-directed air and ground attack on his convoy, there was a 90-minute meeting at the White House to consider the ex-Libyan leader’s fate, among other issues coming up following the NATO regime- change campaign. At the White House session, late in the night of Oct. 19, three options were presented to President Obama: capture Qaddafi and try him in Libya; capture Qaddafi and try him at the International Criminal Court in the Hague; or kill him. Both the Libyan and Hague trials were rejected because of anticipated political problems (Libya has no functional judicial system, and a trial in the Hague would be considered a violation of Libyan sovereignty). While the Times report did not draw the conclusion, the point is clear: The kill order was given, and within less than 24 hours, Qaddafi was dead. All of the media B.S. about young rebel soldiers taking matters into their own hands was just that — B.S.
A US/NATO intelligence unit identified Qaddafi’s whereabouts, and air strikes were ordered on the caravan — reported to be showing white surrender flags on the vehicles, a war crime (if confirmed). First, a US drone fired, and later French fighter jets bombed the cars. News reports from the Guardian indicated that there were British and French commandos on the scene, along with the Libyan rebels. The ground forces were totally coordinated with the air attacks and the advance intelligence monitoring. It was a coordinated military operation, and, according to the New York Times, “the killing of Colonel Qaddafi was one of the three scenarios considered last Wednesday.” According to the Times account, a task force, under the direction of Derek Chollet, senior director of strategic planning for the National Security Council, was established in March, when the U.S. military operations first were launched. Pentagon, Justice Department, and State Department officials, along with representatives from other agencies, were involved in the task force all the way through to the Qaddafi execution.
