As has been explained ad nauseum, the Libyan "rebels" are nothing but bought and paid for terrorists and intelligence agents from the NATO allied nations. Same difference.
That said, there is no honour amongst thieves, so why would this news come as a surprise to anyone?
Of course the western media is spinning this in a number of ways. Killed by Islamists.
The General was a traitor to the rebels...
A bit of background-
Gen Abdel Fattah Younes had defected earlier this year to join with the rebels
"He was widely seen as one of the few military figures on the rebel side capable of organising their forces against the better trained Libyan government army"He appeared by all reports to be someone the rebels sorely needed since he had actual military experiences. Capable of organizing the rebels. Capable of leading the rebels
And that might be the problem, necessitating his assassination?
HE WAS A LEADER. Not a follower.
Can you think of any reason that certain allied organizations would not be interested in having someone with real leadership abilities in charge of their rebels??
Could it be possible that he may lead the rebels, rather then NATO leading the rebels?
Could it be possible that under his leadership, if he proved to be able and capable, the rebels may not be so willing to cave to NATO's edicts?
His alleged assassins are said to be the Abu Obeida al-Jarrah Brigade.
Curiously, this brigade has never been previously heard of !
"So secretive is the Abu Obeida al-Jarrah Brigade - that until yesterday few in the rebel capital had ever heard of it."
Even more curious?
Despite the fact that this group has been virtually unheard of until this assassination, western media outlets are claiming they are very influential.
"Unlike the other militias, the Brigade seems to exercise considerable power within the rebel movement"
Well how is this even possible? How is it possible that a virtually unheard of group can wield influence within the rebel "movement" that has never hear of them until this assassination?
Which this unheard of group can now wear as a badge of honour. Making them a group to rally around???
Interesting to note, this killing comes at a time when there is much unhappiness in Benghazi- And growing distrust with the Libyan Transitional National Council (virtually run by NATO)
"People in Benghazi are very unhappy that things have not returned to normal with Gaddafi gone after five months of hardship in the uprising," said a western consultant (intelligence asset) who has been in Benghazi. "Benghazites are not getting what they need and are pretty weary with the leadership for not engineering Gaddafi's overthrow."
We are very worried about the Libyan Transitional National Council," said Osama Doghaim, a Benghazi resident. "No one knows whether to trust them any more."
Along comes a new unheard of faction.
To challenge the authority of the Libyan Transnational Council at a time they are losing popularity?
Killing someone who may have been the one individual capable of uniting the rebels in their cause and possibly empowering them to independence?
In other words, is this a divide and conquer strategy being employed by NATO?
To further sow the seeds of dissension and justify the need for further engagement by NATO including the use of boots on the ground?
It certainly has to be considered
