Secret Documents Uncovered In The Fall Of Libya Show Gaddafi Is Partner In CIA’s Global Illegal Torture Network

Libya was one of the most brutal police states in the world.  It is now just coming to light how heinous the regime was.  No one can really quantify the number of people tortured by Gaddafi’s police state but some are estimating the figure as high as a million people.  This in a country of six million people.  This would put them on a comparative scale with the Nazis who had a hand in killing over 30 million people. 

If you listen to the video from Human Rights Watch, you’ll hear that they uncovered documents tying Libya’s police state to participating in illegal rendition for the CIA.  In other words, as part of the CIA’s so-called war against terror, Libya’s state security apparatus worked for the CIA. 

ter·ror·ism – noun - the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

Now, who again are the terrorists?  I’m having a hard time keeping this straight. 

Remember, I expect to see many shocking horrors about our government revealed in coming years.  If this doesn’t shock you, the state’s propaganda has desensitized you and turned you into a stooge for state-based crimes against humanity.   Let’s call a spade a spade.   If this doesn’t shock you and encourage you to demand change in our government, you have become a moral coward.  The vast majority of people in Nazi Germany were also moral cowards.  They turned a blind eye and then claimed to have no affiliation with crimes of the state when American troops rolled into Berlin and exposed Nazi horrors to the world.

By the way, apparently one of the current rebel leaders in Libya and his pregnant wife were tortured by the CIA and Gaddafi.  It’ll be interesting to see what blowback presents itself as the people of Libya learn of Gaddafi’s torture ties to the United States and Europe.   This could turn very ugly for both Europe and the U.S.

A lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.  -- Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda.
