Clinton Emails Reveal France, U.S. Looted Oil & Gold In Libya

New emails published by the U.S. Department of State reveal the real motives behind the international invasion of Libya. The new emails of Hillary Clinton reveal that the real reason behind the invasion were primarily the country’s large gold and oil reserves, and the extension of French influence in North Africa.

Fort Russ reports: The U.S. State Department has published a series of emails that reveal the volume of gold reserves of Gaddafi. According to the documents, the reserves are so great that they could become the basis for creating a pan-African currency, which, in turn, could compete with the dollar in the region. Also, the reasons for intervention were identified as the major oil reserves of Libya and the strengthening of French influence in North Africa.

However, in 2011, Western leaders welcomed the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime as a democratic step. “Long live Benghazi, long live Libya, long live the friendship between France and Libya!”, – said French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

“You showed the world that you can overthrow the dictator and have chosen freedom!” – said the Prime Minister of Great Britain David Cameron, speaking to the Libyan people.”The people of Libya got rid of a dictator. Now it has a chance,” claimed the Vice-President of USA Joe Biden.

In the past five years, the violence and chaos in Libya has not stopped. In the background of this, “Islamic State” is gaining momentum in the country and has captured new territory. In January 2016, dozens of people were killed as a result of terrorist. Previously, “Islamic State” had claimed responsibility for the attack on a training camp in Zliten.

According to the correspondent of the newspaper The Jerusalem Post Ariel Ben Solomon, from the outset it was obvious that intervention in Libya would lead to negative consequences for the country. “The email to Clinton is confirmed by the results of studies that began to appear after the invasion of Libya, organized by France with U.S. support. Major oil reserves of the country were the main reason for intervention. Dictators lead many African countries, but the West is in no hurry to intervene in each of them. The Obama administration from the beginning was guided by rather naive misconceptions on the actions that needed to be taken to resolve the situation in Libya after the war”, said RT political analyst Ariel Ben Solomon.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

NTC ‘promised France a third of the oil’

Thursday 01 September 2011

The Sarkozy administration has secured a deal with the emerging regime in Libya to exploit a third of the developing country’s oil reserves, French daily Liberation reported today, citing a letter to the emir of Qatar.

Liberation said a letter from the National Transitional Council (NTC) dated April 3 informed the emir, a major financial backer of the rebels’ Nato-backed regime change operation, of a deal “to assign 35 per cent of crude oil to France in exchange for its total and permanent support of our council.”

The report emerged as Paris prepared to host a meeting of world leaders and senior officials to win recognition for the NTC and its interim rule in Libya.

The “Friends of Libya” conference was co-hosted by French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Prime Minister David Cameron and attended by officials from 60 countries.

At the time the Star went to press it was unclear what had been discussed, but the meeting was widely expected to declare the end of the conflict in Libya.

Meanwhile European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton announced that Brussels was lifting its sanctions on Libyan ports, banks and energy firms.

Officials said the decision covered six port authorities, more than a dozen companies in the oil and gas sector, several banks and financial institutions and the national airline company.

The decision will go into effect after it is published in the bloc’s official gazette today.

A number of EU member states have recognised the NTC as the legitimate government. In May the EU extended de facto recognition by opening a diplomatic office in Benghazi.

On August 29 the Italian oil giant ENI signed its own deal with the NTC to restart its oil production in Libya and reopen a major gas pipeline running from Libya’s oil fields under the Mediterranean to Italy.

  1. Nicolas Sarkozy gossip could give victory to Socialists

    From: The Times
    September 09, 2011 12:00AM

    NICOLAS Sarkozy faced an embarrassing split in his Centre-Right party yesterday after a senior figure was suspended for reigniting rumours that the President had slept with one of his ministers.

    Pierre Charon, Mr Sarkozy’s former communications adviser, appeared to suggest that Sports Minister Chantal Jouanno, 42, owed her place in the government to an extramarital relationship with Mr Sarkozy.

    Although Mr Charon, one of the President’s oldest associates, later claimed he had been misunderstood, his comments sparked fury within Mr Sarkozy’s Union for a Popular Movement.

    Ms Jouanno, a former French karate champion who is married with three children, said Mr Charon would be made to “pay for a long time” for alluding to the rumours. The speculation first surfaced last year amid claims on internet chat forums that Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the President’s wife, was having an affair with singer Benjamin Biolay.

    No evidence emerged to substantiate the speculation but Ms Bruni-Sarkozy said vehement public denials by Mr Charon at the time had given the rumours publicity and made matters worse. Mr Charon, 50, was promptly sacked.

    In what appears to have been a fit of pique, he responded by announcing he was organising a dissident Centre-Right list for this month’s elections to the French Senate. He is standing in Paris against the UMP list in the city, which is headed by Ms Jouanno.

    Mr Charon was asked on French television whether his campaign would split the Centre-Right vote, and offer victory to the opposition Socialist Party, which hopes to win control of the Senate for the first time.

    He replied that Ms Jouanno was certain to be elected anyway, adding: “Whether on the tatamis or in bed, she’s head of the list.”

    The comment was taken as a reference to last year’s rumours.
