From NATO Libyan war to Manchester terrorism

Blowback: NATO, Libya, and Suicide Terror

27 February 2018

May 22, 2017: A suicide bomber walks into a pop concert in Manchester and blows himself up. There’s a lot we don’t know about the attack, and likely never well, but what we do know is that the attack on Manchester, and other similar attacks, may, in part, be blowback from Western foreign policy.

Soon after the Arab Spring arrived in Libya in February 2011, the Western powers, in the form of NATO, decided to intervene and help topple Gadhafi. Libya quickly descended into violence and chaos, enabling ISIS to sweep into the vacuum. Though many of the Libyan rebels who had protested Gadhafi were ordinary Libyans seeking freedom, some of them were “jihadi militias” and Salman Abedi, the suicide attacker, had been trained to fight in Libya alongside these “jihadi militias”.

Hosted by Mehdi Hasan.

Abedi, born in Britain, was brought by the British ‘intelligence’ service to Libya for fighting as a child soldier in a jihadist militia. That totally fucked him up.

The British government has admitted that it “likely” had contacts with two Islamist groups, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and the 17 February Martyrs Brigade, for which the 2017 Manchester Arena bomber, Salman Abedi, and his father reportedly fought during the 2011 war in Libya: here.
