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

Washington, D.C. –  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 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. The biggest media lie ever was the one that made the whole world believe thar gaddaff was evil. Libya has become a haven of terrorism and unlawliness.

  2. Gaddafi move would set the UK on fire that night. UK has no resources and almost all the gold (STOLEN GOLD) is in Vatican under the Pope who mocks the people

  3. The utter corruption in virtually every government in the world . . . corruption at every turn . . . is very disheartening, and is often the cause of war that sends millions of innocent young men off to die . . . all because of the lust for power and wealth of the politicians at the top. So sad.

  4. We all know the truth. So what are you doing to get it back…Gods son is black.. Remember who you are and who made us..GOD

  5. Ultimately The Most High, Yes The Universal God has seen, written & warned us & We are witnessing the Changing of an Age of Mankind to which Many (Evil People) won’t survive.

  6. This is probably why the middle easterners have entered France and are now treating the French with such disrespect. It’s payback time for killing their great leader Muammar Gaddafi.

  7. I learned of the type of lifestyle in which Gadaffi afforded his citizens. It would rival and then trounce any initiatives afforded by the U.S. government. Gadaffi was the object of much propaganda and misinformation. Obama even embraced him only to turn on him while giving the reason for it being something he allegedly did in 1982.

  8. What set Gadaffi apart from most Arab leaders was his affirmation of African ancestry and his Pan-African view of the world. How about Mr. OBAMA’S views on Africa, gay right and the consequences thereof.
