CIA visits Libya to instruct puppet prime minister on policy, get hold of $170 billion

The CIA instructed `prime minister` Ali Zeidan on a new strategy to attempt to gain access to the $170 billion of Libyan assets abroad

In the wake of the September 11, 2012 killing of the U.S. Ambassador Stevens and three other C.I.A., D.I.A. and U.S. State Department spies, the US Undersecretary of Defence for Intelligence, Michael G. Vickers, held talks in Tripoli on Monday evening, with the "Prime Minister" of the illegal occupation regime, Ali Zeidan.

Vickers, on a brief visit to Libya due to the security situation there, was accompanied by the new US Chargé d’Affaires William Roebuck who had taken up his post only last Friday

Vickers briefed Zeidan on the policy that the U.S. wishes to publicly pursue regarding the $170 billion in assets held overseas by the Libyan Jamahiriya government which the U.S.-European NATO allies had sought to overthrow with the invasion of Libya in 2011 and the installation of a series of failed "governments" since then.

Sources say information leaked out about the meeting reveals that the U.S. is keen to persuade the Libyan regime to share the assets in return for assistance in getting hold of the substantial assets around the world. Given that the seizure of the assets is illegal and rests on grounds which have since proven to be false, and since these assets are in the name of the real people's government of Libya, the Jamahiriya, a campaign is to be started claiming that the assets are "Qaddafi".

The information reveals that Vickers told his Libyan counterparts that they must jointly operate the disinformation campaign aimed at convincing foreign entities that the assets belong to the Libyan revolutionary leader Muammar Qadhafi, and not the Libyan Jamahiriya. However, the strategy is on shaky grounds as legal challenges can be mounted and compensation sought for the release of any of the Libyan Jamahiriya assets to any other party.

Publicly, Zeidan said that Libya wanted to strengthen ties with the US, according to the government’s website. He paid tribute to slain US Ambassador Chris Stevens and to the help provided by the United States during the armed insurrection, saying that Libya now looked forward to cooperating with the Americans in the military field, notably modernising its security forces.

The United States already has made headways into Africa with its Africa Command "AFRICOM" which was prevented from operating any bases in Africa during the de facto Jamahiriya and its heavy influence within the African Union.

Zeidan added that the country was also counting on American help in other areas. He mentioned economic, trade and technical education as well as support for civil society training and help building up and consolidating (western style multi-party) democracy.

However, the Libyan implementation attempts at western democracy fail even the minimal western standards since most of the Libyan people are banned from participation by draconian laws which prevent anyone who has ever advocated any of the democratic ideas of The Green Book, from participation.

The Green Book is a work authored by Muammar Qadhafi which lays bare the fallacy of various forms of "democracy" and sets forth the solution: direct participatory consensus democracy based upon People's Conferences and People's Committees.

After receiving the cue from Vickers, the regime's Foreign Affairs Minister-designate and so-called Minister of International Cooperation Mohamed Abdulaziz said that Libya was "looking for American help in tracking down money looted by the Qaddafi regime."
