'Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive''
I have used this quote frequently here. For many different reasons, regarding varying situations and yet, all happenings having the one common thread running through them. That is, of course, deception.
I hope you have been following along? It will sure make it much easier. We are going to start with this story left by an anonymous commenter-
We are covering Gaddafis assassination- the Ambassador's quiet funeral- Syria's connection via NATO eavesdropping to kill Gaddafi and finally Russian Peacekeepers in Syria??? Going long folks
Anonymous October 1, 2012 6:59 AMIsn’t that interesting? And, thanks Anonymous! Just quoting some tidbits from the article....
"Gaddafi was killed by French secret serviceman on orders of Nicolas Sarkozy, sources claim"
“A French secret serviceman acting on the express orders of Nicolas Sarkozy is suspected of murdering Colonel Gaddafi, it was sensationally claimed today.”
Now Mahmoud Jibril, who served as interim Prime Minister following Gaddafi's overthrow, told Egyptian TV: 'It was a foreign agent who mixed with the revolutionary brigades to kill Gaddafi.”
Interesting timing, wouldn’t you say? If you don't find the timing interesting remember the last post? About Gaddafi’s killer dying in the French hospital last week?
More from the linked article
“In another sinister twist to the story, a 22-year-old who was among the group which attacked Gaddafi and who frequently brandished the gun said to have killed him, died in Paris last Monday.”
Ben Omran Shaaban was said to have been beaten up himself by Gaddafi loyalists in July, before being shot twice.He was flown to France for treatment, but died of his injuries in hospital.
Since you have been reading along, you will know that this was NOT the name of the individual provided to us, via the media after Gaddafi was assassinated.
“Grinning Mohammed al Bibi, 20, was greeted by wild crowds in Sirte amid volley after volley of celebration gunfire. “
Mohammed al Bibi? Omran Shaaban?
There is also an age discrepancy? The killer of Gaddafi would be 21 right about now, not 22.
So, we have a problem. We allegedly have two individuals killing Gaddafi, when only one would have taken the “kill shot” We have a leak, that is interesting and curiously timed. Sarkozy is out of office and the man that killed Gaddafi is dead. As is the Ambassador of Libya.
I am still thinking “cleaning house” "Tying up loose ends" Or who knows... perhaps something else entirely. A situation that hasn't even crossed my mind!!! You?
Felix left a comment and link regarding the killing of Gaddafi and the Ambassador's low key funeral
“I never believed the Gaddafi death story , and neither this one. Psy ops imho.
Musings on the strange low key funerals or lack of them here”Before we get to Felix’s link and the news I could dig up on the Ambassador’s funeral...
Let’s just say, I can’t disagree with the sentiment expressed by Felix. The “drain pipe” capture and the boy with the golden gun were narrative creation/perception management. Fodder for the masses. The drain pipe story was used to create a perception of a cowardly man, reduced by his “superiors” to hiding in a drain pipe. This narrative “how the mighty have fallen” played out previously with Saddam and the “spider hole” The boy with the golden gun, was used to demonstrate youthful enthusiasm bringing about “justice” with a bit of James Bond, for the Hollywood indoctrinated crowd.
Taking into consideration the news about the French secret service man being the killer of Gaddafi and the death of Omran Shaaban in hospital in France. It seems likely Omran Shaaban was the killer of Gaddafi and now that he is gone, well, why now? Why leak this news now?
Onto the link left by Felix regarding the Ambassador’s death- Ambassador Stevens and colleagues: Why "the sound of silence"?
Worth reading and thanks for that link Felix!

This article on Gaddafi and the French killer also makes an interesting connection to Syria, specifically to the tracking of communications undertaken by Assad.
"“Rami El Obeidi, the former head of foreign relations for the Libyan transitional council, said he knew that Gaddafi had been tracked through his satellite telecommunications system as he talked to Bashar Al-Assad, the Syrian dictator.”
Is this legit?
Nato experts were able to trace the communications traffic between the two Arab leaders, and so pinpoint Gaddafi to the city of Sirte, where he was murdered on October 20 2011"
In all likelihood, NATO had been eavesdropping for a heck of a long time on both Assad and Gaddafi, so there is not much of a reason to think this could not be true.
Speaking of Syria -Anonymous left another interesting link- From willyloman, a place I am almost completely unfamiliar with. That said, the piece is worth looking at!
Thanks to Scott for putting it together.
Russian Peacekeeping Forces “CAN” Deploy to Syria Under New UN Mandate
The Nezavisimaya Gazeta newspaper reported in June of this year that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his general staff to work out plans to deploy Russian military assets as peace keepers in Syria under the guidelines of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and a UN mandate which he has been working to secure. Seems like he may yet get his chance to set those plans in motion.
Early reports from Ria Novosti, Voltaire Network , Turkish Weekly and the Public Radio of Armenia detail a new deal signed by Russia-led Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) chief Nikolai Bordyuzha and Herve Ladsous, the head of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations, to allow the CSTO potentially to deploy as “blue hats” or UN Peacekeepers in trouble spots across the world including South Ossetia and Syria.Read entirely at link above
Apparently the deal was signed late Friday. This Memorandum of Understanding now allows for CSTO forces to be deployed as opposed to just NATO troops which have been deployed in the past.
The “can” but will they? Worth keeping an eye on.
A scenario that has been bandied around for some time now, including previous mentions here on the blog. If I am not mistaken there was talk in the Chinese media regarding Chinese peacekeepers being possible also.
