This piece is in English, so technically you don’t really need me to walk you through it. And there is not a Russian angle to this story, as far as I know.
But, in a way, this story is the (not unexpected) answer to the riddle I posed in my blogpost from earlier this year, namely, “Who Stole the Gold?”
And if this story was just about a treasure hunt, then it wouldn’t be so ugly. But the story is also about the vicious murder of a decent man, the destruction of his family, and, oh yes, the wanton killing of Arabs and Africans. So, in other words, it’s not funny, even if George Clooney were to make a movie about this heist.
Whom The Capitalists Destroy They First Demonize
Bottom line: These 143 tons of gold were already budgeted for economic development in Africa, and to help build much-needed infrastructure. The money was held securely in the Libyan Central Bank. And then Libya was destroyed, and the treasure vanished.
And these wikileaks exposes give a pretty good idea of “Whodunnit?” and why.
Oh, and anybody who still believes in all that propaganda demonizing Qaddafi as a bad, bad, very bad man; and how Clinton/Obama just wanted to bring “democracy” to Libya — well, we all know what P.T. Barnum used to say about such people.
Oh, and by the way, if you send somebody an unencrypted email, but place the word “CONFIDENTIAL” in the subject line, that doesn’t necessarily mean that other people can’t read it. It’s like, at work, if you sent out an email with all the company secrets and then “Reply to All”, but put at the bottom: “This email is intended to be read only by authorized recipients.” Uh huh.
And P.S. – Dear Readers, I hate to do this to you again, but once again I am forced to post this youtube showing the possible future POTUS laughing and giggling while watching a video of Qaddai being tortured and sodomized by a mob of jihadi extremists. The same pleasant Jeffersonian democrats who went on to become ISIS and Daesh.
All of which begs the question:
Do the American people really want a thieving psychopath as their leader? Well, it wouldn’t be the first time, I suppose.
