Closing Thought–16Dec20

Back in the 1980s the Reagan admin had this enormous hard on for Qaddafi…..he even got one of his top generals to sign on as a CIA asset in the covert war with the Libyan leader…..that did not work so well…..Haftar, the general, and his men were sent to the US to live off the government tit for 30+ years…..and then the revolution in 2011 in Libya gave the CIA their chance to put their man to work.

Qaddifi dies and the country slides into chaos, a typical condition when the West intervenes where they do not belong, after a decade of fighting Haftar has control over the Eastern part of Libya and all its oil wealth……and what does Haftar do with the cash? Does he make the lives of his fellow Libyans better?

Nope…he goes on a real estate shopping spree in the US…..

Libyan Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar owns real estate assets worth millions of dollars in the United States, reported the Arabic language service of Anadolu Agency.

Haftar fell out with Muammar Gaddafi in the late 1980s and lived in Virginia, before returning to Libya during the 2011 revolution.

He has bought 17 properties registered in his name in the US state, using funds he smuggled out of Libya, according to the agency’s sources.

Among Haftar’s assets in Virginia is a home and a farm in Falls Church. He also paid $8m in cash to purchase one of the other alleged assets and a 5,600 sq m house worth $2.5m in Great Falls, Montana.

Last July, Haftar bought a horse farm worth $700,000 in Boise City, Oklahoma, said Anadolu Agency.

Here’s a thought…..should not this Haftar parasite be repaying the US for the free ride that lasted 30+ years?

  1. So he is essentially a criminal who stole money from the Libyan people, and used it to accumulate weatlh while in exile in America?
    Sounds like he knows the true meaning of ‘The American Dream’.
    Best wishes, Pete.
