Who Stole 143 Tons of Gold From the Libyan People?

I admit that I don’t follow American politics as much as I should, at least not on a day-by-day basis.  It’s just too depressing.  Sometimes it reminds me of that famous Russian saying about  пауки в банке – “spiders in a jar”.  Meaning,  that if you force a bunch of spidies to live together in a jar, then they will cuddle and learn to peacefully coexist ….. NOT.  In this metaphor, it is understood that the spiders are the politicians, and the jar is the American political scene.  With various spiders running for President and trying to bite each other in the process.

And one of these spiders, maybe the biggest one, is named Hillary Clinton.  And apparently, this has been going on for some time, there was a big scandal whereby Clinton, when she was Obama’s Secretary of State, used her personal email account to conduct governmental affairs.  Therefore, there were lawsuits, or whatever, to force her to disclose these emails, because there are laws that official correspondence has to be properly stored in official archives.

Consequently, at the beginning of last month,  around 5,000 pages of the something-like 55,000 pages of Clinton’s “official/personal” correspondence have been published.  Clinton has withheld the lion’s share of the correspondence, but even the paltry stream that has seen the light of day, opens a sticky, filthy edge of the curtain on all the dirty, sticky, secret stuff that has been going on behind the scenes among the Rulers and Exceptional People such as Bubba’s Wife and the other trailer trash reknowned American political leaders.

This piece from VZGLIAD  is entitled:

Clinton’s Emails Have Disclosed the Real Reason for Gaddafi’s Overthrow

As a young man, Gaddafi had movie-star good looks.

Those of us who have memories slightly longer than that of a spider, remember how Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi was violently overthrown and murdered by rampaging jihadists, in 2011.  Along with Gaddafi, his entire family was either destroyed, assassinated, arrested, or sent into exile.

Gaddafi had led Libya for many years and even decades, patching together a successful and wealthy multi-ethnic, multi-tribal, but basically Arab state driven by quasi-socialist principles.  Based on the notions of an extensive social-welfare network and sharing the wealth.

Gaddafi was a decent man who doted on his family.

As he aged, Gaddafi lost his movie-star good looks – in his murder-video, it was revealed that he had lost his mop of curly hair and wore a wig – an old man’s vanity.  Also, as he aged, Gaddafi had cultivated an aura of eccentricity, which caused some Western pundits to peg him as crazy/unhinged; but underneath it all, Gaddafi still possessed that same keen intelligence which took an ex-colonial backwater like Libya, and turned it into an Arab-speaking nation of wealth and repute.  Libya enjoyed an excellent system of health and education.  Gaddafi’s government sponsored vast engineering projects which brought irrigation and made the desert bloom.  Libya was a powerful and wealthy country; and oil revenues were shared by the people.

Towards the end of Gaddafi’s life, before Clinton Happened, Libya had managed to accumulate 140 tons of sovereign gold.  The Libyan government planned to use that gold, not just to raise the living standard of Libyans themselves, but also as a development fund, to drive the economic development of sub-Saharan Africa as well.  Many important development projects were lined up and just waiting to kick-off.

The Empire Strikes Back

Well, according to the rules of the Colonial Empire, sub-Saharan Africans are not allowed to be successful.  Nor Arabs – unless they are Saudis or vassals of the Saudis. Therefore, Gaddafi had to go.

According to the VZGLIAD piece, Clinton’s correspondence reveals that the Americans were worried about Libya’s huge reserves of gold and oil.   Their chief worry was that Gaddafi — as he had sometimes promised to do — would use Libyan gold as the basis for a pan-African currency.  Which would have fit beautifully into the proposed pan-African development bank whose goal was to turn sub-Saharan Africa, especially the African “Francophone” nations, into “tiger-states” of economic boom.

These plans were seen to go against the interests of both the U.S. and also its vassal, France, which was eager to regain military/economic influence in its ex-colonies in Africa.

 

All of this is laid out here, this link opens to a PDF file which is an image of one of Clinton’s emails.  If you click on the link, a thingy will come up on the bottom of your screen asking if you want to open the PDF.  I think it’s safe to open it; it comes up in another window.

This particular email is very telling.  It is dated April 2, 2011, and is written by a guy named “Sid” to Hillary Clinton.  Just reading the email, it is clear that we are in the presence of true sociopaths:  Clinton, this guy Sid, Sarkozy, Bernard Henri-Levy, all spiders from the same jar.


For: Hillary From: Sid Re: France’s client & Qaddafi’s gold


1. A high ranking official on the National Libyan Council states that factions have developed within it. In part this reflects the cultivation by France in particular of clients among the rebels. General Abdelfateh Younis is the leading figure closest to the French, who are believed to have made payments of an unknown amount to him. Younis has told others on the NLC that the French have promised they will provide military trainers and arms. So far the men and materiel have not made an appearance. Instead, a few “risk assessment analysts” wielding clipboards have come and gone. Jabril, Jalil and others are impatient. It is understood that France has clear economic interests at stake. Sarkozy’s occasional emissary, the intellectual self-promoter Bernard Henri-Levy, is considered by those in the NLC who have dealt with him as a semi-useful, semi-joke figure.


2. Rumors swept the NLC upper.  echelon this week that Qaddafi may be dead or maybe not.

3. Qaddafi has nearly bottomless financial resources to continue indefinitely, according to the latest report we have received:
On April 2, 2011 sources with access to advisors to Salt al-Islam Qaddafi stated in strictest confidence that while the freezing of Libya’s foreign bank accounts presents Muammar Qaddafi with serious challenges, his ability to equip and maintain his armed forces and intelligence services remains intact. According to sensitive information available to this these individuals, Qaddafi’s government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver. During late March, 2011 these stocks were moved to SABHA (south west in the direction of the Libyan border with Niger and Chad); taken from the vaults of the Libyan Central Bank in Tripoli.
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. According to these individuals Sarkozy’s plans are driven by the following issues:


a. A desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production,
b. Increase French influence in North Africa,
UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05779612 Date: 12/31/2015
UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05779612 Date: 12/31/2015
c. Improve his intemai political situation in France,
d. Provide the French military with an opportunity to reassert its position in the world,
e. Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi’s long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa)
On the afternoon of April 1, an individual with access to the National Libyan Council (NLC) stated in private that senior officials of the NLC believe that the rebel military forces are beginning to show signs of improved discipline and fighting spirit under some of the new military commanders, including Colonel Khalifha Haftar, the former commander of the antiQaddafi forces in the Libyan National Army (LNA). According to these sources, units defecting from Qaddafi’s force are also taking a greater role in the fighting on behalf of the rebels:

After Gaddafi’s murder: Al Qaeda flags fly proudly over Benghazi.

And interestingly enough, this letter is among those which Clinton did NOT classify; apparently she didn’t see anything particularly damning in it.

After all, what would the Libyans have done with all that gold anyhow?  Just built schools, hospitals, irrigation projects, and funded African development?  All laughably unimportant, compared to such goals as:

  1. Strengthening Sarkozy’s political position at home
  2. Putting Hillary Clinton into the White House; or
  3. Solidifying Bernard-Henri Lévy’s reputation as the “moral conscience” of our time.  (If “moral conscience” includes such notions as promoting colonial wars and genocide.)

Yes, But Where Is the Gold?

Bottom line:  Nobody knows where the missing gold is.

Where the f*** is the gold? Does Clinton know?

All we know for sure is that Gaddafi, the man whose leadership brought so much wealth to Libya, was brutally murdered by a mob of Western-paid, Western-armed jihadi rabble.

Who didn’t merely kill him, but also tortured and sodomized him first.  Not forgetting to videotape their actions, for the viewing pleasure of their masters, who likes them some snuff porn.

And that Hillary Clinton watched this video, was delighted by it, as one of the commenters to the VZGLIAD piece notes, “She acts like a child who was just given a piece of candy.”

Laughed out loud, and exclaimed:  “We came, we saw, HE DIED!”

And this is the woman who would become President of the United States of America.  Abe Lincoln is sobbing in his grave.

            I bet everyone loves reading articles about gold, especially stolen gold and its whereabouts. The old James Bond flick “Goldfinger” is still popular and gets re-runs on TV now and again.

            Also saw your discussion with Takinitin further down the comments thread and saw something about the use of sodomy in Muslim societies. This is only a guess on my part that male-on-male sodomy is an expression of absolute power and victory, it’s not purely an act of sexual perversion or hints at an underlying repressed homosexuality (although of course that depends on the motivation of the individual performing it on the victim), and the custom could very well pre-date Islam itself, although like other customs such as female circumcision and girls marrying their fathers’ brothers (which the Qu’ran frowns upon as a no-no) it has probably gone wherever Islam has gone. Ancient Greeks were known to have scorned back-entry sexual intercourse as it was done by husbands to wives (and it is reminiscent of a man ploughing his fields with oxen) and not between equals, and something of this attitude may have lasted to the present day. So male-on-male sodomy reduces a male victim to the status of a woman.

      On my monster-o-meter, I claim that Hillary is a worse person than Viktor Dioxinovich. Because V.D. knew that it was wrong to steal, so even though he stole, he denied it and lied about it.
      Whereas Hillary is proud of what she did. She could have suppressed that email, but she didn’t. Like any arrogant criminal, she wants to brag about her heist: “Ці руки багато крали! — Це перемога!”

      By the way, it turns out that the “Sid” in the emails is Hillary’s dear friend Sid Blumenthal.
      Blumenthal had money invested in a defense contractor that wanted to sell arms to the Libyan rebels. I have reason to believe, that Sid’s motives were less than pure.
      As opposed to Bernard-Henri Lévy, the philosopher of “Just War”, whose motives are as pure as those of angels; whose sole concern is the good of the human race, and the great moral victory of democracy against tyranny. [sarc]

      Here is another link. Everybody is doing this story now. Many Americans are still upset about Ambassador Stevens’ death. Personally, I could give a sh*t about Stevens, he was just another spider in the jar, another monster who plotted to destroy the Libyan people.
      Somehow he ticked off his own jihadi goons. They came, they saw, he died.

      Earlier I saw a link, and I’m kicking myself now, because I didn’t save it, and I can’t find it, according to which “Sid” was highly critical of Bernard-Henri Lévy. Even mocked him mercilessly. If anybody can find that link again, I would be grateful.

          From what I understand, it was the usual terrorists who did that to him, no?
          They had some kind of falling out? That was my understanding of the matter.
          The blowback of it was the big scandal which harmed Hillary. Republicans accused her of being lax in the Benghazi security, but that was obviously a deflection from the main issue; namely, what were the American State Dept up to in the first place using their Benghazi consulate?

            Benghazi was not actually a consulate. It was a CIA outpost. Other embassies had closed and evacuated from Libya, but the US Embassy in Tripoli tried to remain open amidst threats of attack. The staff moved to hotels and then the relocated to Benghazi for security reasons when no additional US help came for Stevens in Tripoli. Unfortunately his plans for movement were sent via email on HRC’s private server and were not secured. Among the Benghazi terrorist attackers were many of the very guards trained to secure the outpost.

            Perhaps sodomy is simply part of the culture… Ghaddafi was also sodomized (while alive) by his attackers.

      Thanks, Fern. Yes, one would think that tenacious Freedom Journalists would be on the hunt for the gold…. hee hee, I just made myself laugh.

      However, be careful what you wish for. If they DID take an interest, then, instead of “Libya’s gold”, they would call it “Gaddafi’s gold”, thus personalizing everything and implying that the old dictator owned all of his country’s wealth.
      So, it would be “Gaddafi’s gold”, just like “Saddam’s oil”, etc.

      However, I noticed in Killery’s email correspondence that she and Sid did not make these childish mistakes. They are adults talking to adults, and Sid was perfectly aware that the gold belonged to the Libyan STATE and that it was going to be used for development projects.

      In conclusion, if I had to make an educated (wild) guess, I would say that the gold is currently in Fort Knox. Or maybe Bernard-Henri Lévy has it stashed away in his Paris flat, who knows?

Was only going to lurk a while, but a lifelong glassblower and metal-crafter simply must mention how gold refining and casting has been done by “primitive” peoples since ancient times. Even today, a refractory clay crucible supported and ringed-about on appropriately refractory rocks such as, say, granite, and a good hot wood fire underneath, plus a bellows and someone to reliably work it are all that are really required for small quantities of the metal in question. Surely the real thieves have ready access to any number of modern-equipped specialty foundries within their criminal circle, happy to quietly take on a leetle re-melt job for an old family friend, no?

              So imho there really are many ways to skin that particular cat “under the radar” of the Lawful World.

              It would be easier though to create transaction documents demonstrating that the Libyan government or its central bank had “sold” the gold and silver to the thieves who have the bullion. There’d be no need to melt down the gold and silver bars.

              Also one other thing to consider is that some if not all of Libya’s gold and silver bullion might not have been physically in bank vaults in the country itself at the time of the NATO invasion; it might have been held in bank vaults in a third country and NATO could have demanded handover of the ownership documents.

        Why wouldn’t the “Syd” referred to in the revealing correspondences to HRC have been Sydney Blumenthal. That would have been my guess.

            I had never heard that. I followed Benghazi outpost attack very closely, read all the books, am a member of the Kris Paronto anti-ISIS activism group; and have heard him speak a number of times, but never heard anything about Stevens being anything but a patriot. He was gay and you wonder, in a country that kills gays, why he was even assigned to Libya.

            Some of the contractors there spoke of the gun running…. the one who came from Tripoli to help at Benghazi (deceased) admitted that’s why he was in Libya. I always thought Stevens loved the country, knew what the Sec of State was up to, and was blowing the whistle– and that he was set up to be killed.

            This is why Americans are hung up on the deaths of our embassy staff, elite soldiers and a US Ambassador. They were hung out to dry with no answers to requests for help, and while weapons, vehicles and a large amount of missiles were stolen by …..?. I’m sure the wealth had already been moved by then. It was a year later, and Rothschild’s Central Bank had been open in Libya for almost six months (it opened in March or April 2012).

            Please let us know where we can link to report on Stevens misdeeds. I would like to read about it.

              Thanks for your comment, Takinitin. That’s an interesting angle. I did read some things about Stevens possibly blowing the whistle on Hillary. There are a lot of conspiracy theories out there. I mostly follow the Russian press. The gist of everything I read (and I am definitely not as well read on this story as you are) was that Stevens was carrying out State Dept policy to help overthrow Assad in Syria, using the same jihadist forces and armies as helped them to overthrow Gaddafi.

              I didn’t know that Stevens was gay, that shouldn’t make a difference to anyone, but, realistically you make a good point about assigning him to an Arab country, why did they do that? Well, maybe he was still the best man for the job. And that maybe wasn’t even a factor to the jihadists, who knows? They probably punished and killed him for reasons unrelated to that. Just because it’s what they do.

    I believe at the time of this Western-led Lybian coup there was no Central Bank in Libya– one of only 2 countries in the world to distance itself from the Rothschild banks. I think it is safe to assume that a Central Bank was in full operation there immediately upon the demise of leader Ghaddafi.

    I also read that the various world governments, including that of the USA, engineered the downing of the Lockerby flight (the plane crash that killed so many US student youths) to frame Ghaddafi. So that he would look like a terrorist monster…. ?

    Who owns 3/4 of all the wealth on the planet? Whose bank dominates everything everywhere in the world except in Libya? Who opened a Central Bank in Libya immediately after the killing of Ghaddafi?

    It is estimated that Japan had over $100t in wealth when the YS dropped the bombs. What happened to that wealth? Rumors were that some of the gold was hidden in caves in the Philippines, and later searched for and dug up by Marcos. But a hundred trillion? Where is it?

    Ghaddafi was killed Oct. 2011. The Benghazi raid was Sept 2012. Wouldn’t the gold have been removed by the time Benghazi was under attack?

    Here is another piece in the puzzle of the reasons for the destruction of Libya, and the strange situation where the Americans provided real-time updates with satellite and intercepted communications to lead a rebel crew directly to the location where they could kill Ghaddafi.

    Ghaddafi and his sons made the fatal mistake of endorsing Obama as the Democratic Party nominee in the 2008 presidential race. They went on to endorse Obama during the 2008 election and the 2012 election.

    This enraged Hillary Clinton who, as is her fashion, blamed everyone but herself for her loss of the nomination. Clinton’s penchant for revenge is also legendary.

    Accounts of cabinet-level discussions prior to the decision of the Obama administration to greenlight the Libyan regime change operation make it clear that Clinton was pushing a very reluctant Obama to make the move. Was it just because of policy positions by her, the EU warhawks who wanted the regime change to promote energy security for Europe, the neocon ideologues she surrounded herself with? Or was it motivated at least partly by a desire for revenge?

    We’ll never know. But the highly unusual direct communication with a Libyan rebel hit squad using advanced technologies that are not usually used with non-state players had to be done with the approval of the State Department, and Clinton would have had to sign off on that se directly.

    Would Clinton with millions of dollars of taxpayer money, risk exposure of classified technological abilities to a terrorist organization, and cause thousands of deaths just because she wanted revenge on a guy who (in her mind) had contributed to her not reaching the White House?

    Do we even need to ask that question?

      That is a very interesting theory, Tom. But we also need to factor in, that European nations, especially France, were completely on-board with supporting the “rebels” and with killing Gaddafi. Must have been something in it for them, too.

    I believe the 2008 US Pres election included a deal for Clinton to drop out, serve as Sec of State in exchange for Obama’s help to get her get elected in ’16. I think Ghaddafi’s death was over global money (Central Bank finally opening in Libya, and Libyas stocked trillions in wealth), and weapons.

      Yes, these are good points.
      My research also indicates that the Libyan government’s decision to fund a Central Bank and institute a gold dinar for African development, was the trigger for Western-sponsored regime change.
      American economy depends on petro-dollar, they cannot tolerate anything which undermines the U.S. dollar.

    This link is not open anymore, closed, I suppose by the State Department.

    I totally agree with your article/analysisyalensis and it my view also that internatiojal Imperialism has destroyed or is currently destroying any country that is home of mineral wealth-oil/gas.
    The biggest possibly reserves of gas have just been discovered between Greece and Libya.
    Is it strange that Greece has been hammered economicaly using treachery and false accounting?

    no one stole the gold, it was in the central bank in Tripoli it took a little while for Gadhafi to get there but when he did he used some of it to pay for his soldiers and military support, the rest was shipped out of the country with his wife and daughter. I believe one son also was out of the country I have the cable if I can find it I will post it. But it was meant to be kept in safekeeping for the Libyan people. I know Gaddafi was getting foreign help from somewhere so that means there was a safe haven for his family as well.

    This is kind of killing me inside. It was only about a hundred years ago that the abolition of slavery happened. We in the west look at undeveloped countries with pity. We wonder, why aren’t they as hard working as us? Why aren’t they as smart as us? But these are the same countries that were enslaved, the same countries that made the developed countries rich. It’s literally killing me inside.
