Oh what a surprise the UK was involved in torture and rendition of a top Libyan commander Abdel Belhaj

Oh what a surprise the UK was involved in torture and rendition of a top Libyan commander Abdel Belhaj

By Dark Politricks

As I have been saying for ages in my essays on Libya and our flip flopping links with terrorists which include these two articles:

When does the enemy of our enemy stay our friend?

NATO helps install Jihadists and Terrorists in control of Libya.

M16 was involved in the rendition and torture of an al-Qaeda linked terrorist who is now one of the top leaders in the new Libyan government that NATO helped to put in power.

Abdel Hakim Belhaj, a confirmed Libyan jihadist with links to al-Qaeda and who is currently a top military  commander in the new Libyan government is suing both the MI6 and the British government, accusing them of complicity in his illegal rendition and alleged torture at their behest. This is now only coming to the mainstream news as a “revelation” even though we have known about it for over half a year.

For those people who haven’t heard of the type of people who we as “humanitarians” helped other-throw Gaddafi for. Abdel Hakim Belhaj is the founder of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG). This was a proscribed terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda as well as being linked to the deaths of many US troops in Iraq.

After the Taliban took power in Kabul in 1996, the LIFG kept two training camps in Afghanistan; one of them, 30 kilometers north of Kabul – run by Abu Yahya – which was strictly for al-Qaeda-linked jihadis.

After 9/11, Abdel Belhaj moved to Pakistan and also to Iraq, where he befriended none other than hardcore terrorist and al-Qaeda beheading expert in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. A report on the mix of people sent to Iraq to fight and kill the US/UK invaders showed that the majority of them came from Libya and had links to groups like the LIFG.

So Abdel Belhaj was not only a follower of bin Laden. He was also a well known jihadist in his own rights and the leader of an outlawed terrorist group in Libya. One in which the ex M15 agent David Shayler says the British secret service paid to carry out a botched execution attempt on Gaddaffi back in the 90’s. Even back then we had no shame in joining sides with terrorists if they served “our” purposes – what has changed – nothing!

Then in 2003 Abdel Belhaj was arrested and taken extraordinary rendition-style, to a secret Bangkok prison, and duly tortured by the Americans.

Then in In 2004, the USA decided to send him as a gift to Libyan intelligence until he was freed by Saif Islam al-Gaddafi in March of 2010, along with other 211 terrorists.

Before being set free Abdel Belhaj and the other terrorists had to sign a 417-page confession in which they declared the jihad against Gaddafi illegal and finally over. Then I guess he just melted away until he became useful again to the globalists when they decided to other-throw the once foe, then friend again Col Gaddafi.

So as the BBC is now reporting finally (many months later than the alternative media #altnews) this rebel leader is now suing us for our actions before he became our ally and the top commander of our now free and liberal Libya.

Yes today’s Libya is a kind and loving place where women can walk with their heads held high without fear of rape, and all men are treated equal whether they be homosexual, Christian or Jew. Previous supporters of Gaddafi do not need to hide in fear as all has been forgotten and a country of tribes has become one harmonious group of equals.

Libya is now a place where our western human rights have been taken on board wholeheartedly and everyone enjoys the same civil rights, living in peace and harmony with their neighbours.

Yes Libya is now a place any European or American would love to holiday to or maybe relocate for life as the job prospects are plentiful.

For those of you who don’t get sarcasm, yes I am joking.

Libya is a mess that we have created.

A place full of tribal infighting and hate seen only a few weeks ago when a World War II cemetery was destroyed by Libyan rebels.

Gaddafi may have been evil but I guess a lot of these people are just as evil and as Libya is now a tribal mishmash of revenge, death, rape and summary executions of anyone blacker than light brown.

It seems we have created the potential for more than a little blowback down the years. How that blowback bites us in the ass we shall have to wait and see but the new Libya is already sending fighters to Syria to fight Assad, another al-Qaeda backed war we seem to be on the same side with.

From the BBC News website yesterday and constantly reported on it’s news channels – as if it were a totally new and unheard of story (to some of us).

UK government ‘approved Abdel Hakim Belhaj’s rendition’

Mr Belhaj is now head of the Tripoli Military Council in the new Libya

The UK government approved the 2004 rendition of a terror suspect to the Gaddafi regime, the BBC can reveal.

A letter from an MI6 officer refers to Abdel Hakim Belhaj’s rendition to Libya. It congratulates the Libyans on the “safe arrival” of the “air cargo”.

Mr Belhaj says he was tortured in jail. Successive UK governments have denied complicity in rendition or torture.

But BBC correspondent Peter Taylor says he understands Mr Belhaj‘s rendition was given ministerial approval.

However it is not clear at what level of government the decision was authorised.

The letter from the senior MI6 officer, Sir Mark Allen, to Col Gaddafi’s intelligence chief, Musa Kusa, was found last year in the rubble of Musa Kusa‘s headquarters, which were bombed by Nato.

As well as congratulating the Libyans on the arrival of the “cargo”, it points out that “the intelligence was British“.

The letter was sent in 2004 when Mr Belhaj was the leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

MI5 believed the group was close to al-Qaeda and involved in recruiting young Muslims in Britain to fight in Iraq.

Our correspondent says it appears MI6 had discovered that Mr Belhaj was in Malaysia and about to head for London in the hope of obtaining political asylum.

MI6 informed its foreign intelligence partners, and as a result Mr Belhaj was intercepted in Bangkok, presumably by the CIA, and rendered to Libya.

Our correspondent says the letter suggests MI6 was complicit in Mr Belhaj’s illegal rendition and alleged torture in Libya – but that MI6 was not acting unilaterally.

He says his understanding is that MI6 obtained authorisation from the Labour government of the time for its action.

Jack Straw was the Labour Foreign Secretary in 2004 when the rendition took place. In an interview on BBC Radio 4 last year he said:

“We were opposed to unlawful rendition. We were opposed to any use of torture or similar methods. Not only did we not agree with it, we were not complicit in it and nor did we turn a blind eye to it.”

He added:

“No foreign secretary can know all the details of what its intelligence agencies are doing at any one time.”

His office told the BBC Mr Straw had nothing further to add in the light of the current allegations.

Legal action in UK

Mr Belhaj – now a senior military commander in the new Libya that Britain helped create – is suing MI6 and the British government, accusing them of complicity in his illegal rendition and alleged torture.

He says he believes he was rendered from Bangkok to Libya by the CIA.

The Metropolitan Police is also investigating his allegations.

Mr Belhaj worked with NATO as one of the leaders of the forces that helped overthrow Col Muammar Gaddafi.

But he claims that during his more than four years in prison he was interrogated by agents from countries including the UK and US.

He had been living in exile in Beijing after leading opposition to Col Gaddafi.

In 2010, Prime Minister David Cameron established a Detainee Inquiry into “whether Britain was implicated in the improper treatment of detainees, held by other countries, that may have occurred in the aftermath of 9/11”.

However, the inquiry was mothballed in January 2012 after the Metropolitan Police announced it was investigating Mr Belhaj‘s claims.

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke said the government was committed to holding a judge-led inquiry once these were investigated.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
