NATO's campaign in Libya goes far beyond trying to assassinate Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi and members of his family, according to informed sources in Tripoli. NATO is using sophisticated geo-location intelligence provided by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) to pinpoint key figures in the Libyan government, as well as close friends of Qaddafi, for assassination by missiles fired from U.S. unmanned drones and NATO piloted aircraft.
State Department legal adviser Harold Koh recently testified before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the U.S. and its allies were not trying to target Qaddafi or members of the Libyan government. Koh stated, "We don't target individuals."
However, it is clear from the evidence of U.S. and NATO strikes on residential areas, particularly homes where key Libyan government officials live, as well as their vehicles, that Koh perjured himself during his Senate testimony.
NATO's attack on June 20 of a residential compound in Sorman, west of Tripoli, was a clear example of the strategy to assassinate key Qaddafi advisers and government officials. The compound struck by NATO in Sorman is owned by Khweildi Hmeidi, a senior adviser to Qaddafi. Fifteen civilians, including six members of Hmeidi's family, were killed in the attack. The compound was attacked because a surge in cell phone activity was detected by NSA signals intelligence (SIGINT) assets and the target coordinates were developed by NSA, working with NGA, and passed to NATO and U.S. forces. NSA has compiled the cell phone numbers of top Libyan officials and any time the cell phone numbers and active frequencies "light up" on sophisticated SIGINT eavesdropping and monitoring systems at NSA headquarters at Fort Meade, Maryland and the NSA field station at Menwith Hill in England, the geo-location coordinates are quickly passed to U.S. and NATO forces in order that they can calibrate their weapons systems for attacks on the Libyan officials.
In Merry Old England, dead men tell no tales
We have also learned from informed UK government sources that the recent death of a top adviser to Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron may have also been a targeted assassination carried out by either Israeli or American intelligence in order to keep British fingerprints well away from the operation....
The discovery last week of the body of top Cameron Conservative Party adviser and long-time friend, 56-year old Christopher Shale, in a portable toilet at the Glastonbury Festival was an assassination, according to sources familiar with in-fighting between Shale and Cameron and his top advisers over the United Kingdom's role in the Libyan military operations. Shale was a rising star in UK politics and his disdain for British intelligence and covert operations, particularly in Africa, were well-known. Shale was convinced that the NATO attack on Libya, as well as the grab for Africa's natural resources by NATO countries, was part of an overall plan to use the British military to help secure Africa for the global bankers who Shale believed had already brought so much ruin and despair to Western economies, as well as those of the developing countries of Africa.
Shale had penned a memo that criticized the policies of the Conservative Party, writing that given its policies, there were no good reasons for anyone to vote for the Conservatives. Shale believed the Conservative Party had been taken over by the same interests that wanted to plunder Libya and the rest of Africa.
The cause of death of Shale now being proffered by certain parties to the British media is that the Tory official died from an untimely heart attack. The affair is reminiscent of the 2005 death of former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, who became an outspoken critic of the Tony Blair administration for its participation in the Iraq war and the phonying up of intelligence to justify the attack and occupation of Iraq. Cook, who was in good health, supposedly died from a sudden heart attack while hiking in his native Scotland. The Shale and Cook deaths are also being compared to the suspicious "suicide" of British Ministry of Defense weapons on mass destruction expert Dr David Kelly in July 2003. Kelly was said to have committed suicide with over-the-counter analgesic, pain killers, and an old pocket knife that he sued to cut his left wrist. A CIA veteran told this editor at the time that Kelly was assassinated because of the information he possessed on the Blair government lying about pre-war intelligence used to justify the invasion of Iraq.
