I find this very interesting....
Considering what entity is really in charge of Libya.
I'll give you a hint, it's not really the Libyan people.
Ask yourself why? Why would Libya do this? Libya is a country that needs to be rebuilt so badly after NATO destroyed it, why would they send urgently needed funds to so called Syrian rebels.
It only makes sense if this money ostensibly from Libya is being directed to Syria via NATO.
The top financier of the Syrian opposition is no Arabian Peninsula oil kingdom or cloak-and-dagger western spy outfit, (yes, it is) but struggling, war-ravaged Libya, which is itself recovering from a devastating civil conflict.
Keeping in mind that at a minimum the consulate in Benghazi is a CIA outfit. And the now deceased US Ambassador was aiding in the delivering of smuggled weapons to the NATO mercs via Turkey
According to a budget released by the Syrian National Council and posted to its website late on Sunday, the Libyan government contributed $20.3m of the $40.4m that the opposition umbrella group has amassed since its creation in August 2011.UPDATE......
Qatar gave $15m while the United Arab Emirates contributed $5m, according to the document.
Unlike Qatar and the UAE, which are absolute monarchies, Libya has embarked on a rocky path towards democracy and shares an ideological vision with Syrian revolutionaries.
Oil-rich Libya has emerged as one of the Syrian uprising’s firmest and earliest backers. Perhaps dozens if not hundreds of veterans of the Nato-backed rebel insurgency against Colonel Muammer Gaddafi have travelled to Syria (as it was in Libya, so it is in Syria- NATO backed rebels) to fight against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Its interim foreign minister said earlier this year that his government could not prevent or condemn Libyans heading to Syria to fight.
The Libyan government was among the first Arab nations to sever ties with the regime in Damascus. But some Libyans question the expenditure, especially in light of questions about the violent and extreme behaviour of some armed Syrian opposition groups.
The SNC’s publication of its budget appeared aimed at boosting its credibility by being transparent over its financing.(that is too funny. credibility and transperancy)

Muammar Gaddafi and his associates had, in total, $ 150 bln on bank accounts in various parts of the world. After the beginning of the Libyan revolution, the West froze these accounts. Now, this money has disappeared somewhere.
“The West most likely decided right after the very start of the anti-Gaddafi rebellion in Libya to do whatever possible to prevent Gaddafi from staying in power. His and his associates’ bank accounts were immediately frozen. Or, it would be probably better to say that it was only officially announced that they were frozen, but in reality they were stolen. Nobody can say for sure precisely who stole this money and where it is now. There is only some vague information that it was allegedly pocketed by the bankers themselves and that these bankers allegedly tried to launder this money in offshore zones. Attempts to find this money are now under way, but I doubt that it will ever be found.”
Perhaps the NATO countries, SNC and the Syrian rebels can tell us where some of Libya's money is?
Maybe Ambassador Stevens could have shed some light on that also.
