Declassified Emails Reveal NATO Killed Gaddafi to Stop Libyan Creation of Gold-Backed Currency

nato-eagle-backgroundBy Jay Syrmopoulos

In spite of French-led U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973 creating a no-fly zone over Libya with the express intent of protecting civilians, one of the over 3,000 new Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department on New Year’s Eve, contain damning evidence of Western nations using NATO as a tool to topple Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. The NATO overthrow was not for the protection of the people, but instead it was to thwart Gaddafi’s attempt to create a gold-backed African currency to compete with the Western central banking monopoly.

The emails indicate the French-led NATO military initiative in Libya was also driven by a desire to gain access to a greater share of Libyan oil production, and to undermine a long term plan by Gaddafi to supplant France as the dominant power in the Francophone Africa region.

The April 2011 email, sent to the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by unofficial adviser and longtime Clinton confidante Sidney Blumenthal with the subject line “France’s client and Qaddafi’s gold,” reveals predatory Western intentions.

The Foreign Policy Journal reports:

The email identifies French President Nicholas Sarkozy as leading the attack on Libya with five specific purposes in mind: to obtain Libyan oil, ensure French influence in the region, increase Sarkozy’s reputation domestically, assert French military power, and to prevent Gaddafi’s influence in what is considered “Francophone Africa.”

Most astounding is the lengthy section delineating the huge threat that Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves, estimated at “143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver,” posed to the French franc (CFA) circulating as a prime African currency.

The email makes clear that intelligence sources indicate the impetus behind the French attack on Libya was a calculated move to consolidate greater power, using NATO as a tool for imperialist conquest, not a humanitarian intervention as the public was falsely led to believe.

According to the email:

This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA).

(Source Comment: According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya.)

The email provides a peek behind the curtain to reveal how foreign policy is often carried out in practice. While reported in the media that the Western-backed Libyan military intervention is necessary to save human lives, the real driving factor behind the intervention was shown to be the fact that Gaddafi planned to create a high degree of economic independence with a new pan-African currency, which would lessen French influence and power in the region.

The evidence indicates that when French intelligence became aware of the Libyan initiative to create a currency to compete with the Western central banking system, the decision to subvert the plan through military means began, ultimately including the NATO alliance.

  1. And they ONLY people who didn’t know this are….you guessed it! 98% of Americans!

    Ask Saddam about bypassing the Petrodollar to reprice Iraqi oil in Euros.

    Oh, wait! You can’t. He’s dead……………

    I thought gold was a useless, worthless, meaningless, barbarous relic. Oh, that’s only what banksters who issue interest bearing unreserved, unbacked, fiat debt paper disguised as money want us to think? OK. I get it now.

  3. Hmmmm

    The notion that Gaddafi’s tiny little economy was in any way a threat to the US economy or US national security was and and still is utter nonsense and pure fiction. Libya was invaded, its key infrastructure destroyed and its leadership removed because the land that it occupies is coveted by the zionists as part of their empire from sea to sea. Furthermore, its political leadership was a threat to Israel’s illegal occupation and now illegal annexation of Palestine, Jerusalem, the Golan, and parts of Jordon and Lebanon. The list of Israeli war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and Apartheid continues to grow. Which makes the ongoing support of Israel’s actions by the US Congress accomplesses in these crimes.

    • Also opened the gates to massive migration to Europe. Rejuvinating ancient Med slave-trader roles, and routes..

  4. “….Western central banking monopoly…..”
    Why not call it what it is – the ROTHSCHILD banking monopoly. They own ALL the central banks including the IBS. ALL wars are instigated by central banks.

    • You know why they don’t. Rothschild, Soros, Warburg, Kuhn, DeLoeb, etc. etc. etc. all hide behind the shield of being members of The Tribe.

  5. In the 1st edition of her book, “Extreme Prejudice,” the American heroine, Susan Lindauer, CIA whistleblower, provides some info regarding the events that led to the destruction of Muammar Qhadaffi and Libya, and a few names. She also reveals the illegal punitive actions by Bush Jr. against her.

  6. Good article. Interesting that some commenters don’t believe the evidence right in front of their eyes on this. Cognitive dissonance.
