Among the links of Libyan rebels to Washington DC
In mid-May 2011, just six weeks after the beginning of the NATO bombing of Libya, leaders of the anti-Gaddafi rebel movement went to Washington, D.C. for “talks.”
And the big oil companies were present when they spoke at the U.S.-Libya Business Council.
The leading Libyan opposition group, the National Front for the Salvation of Libya, has reportedly been backed by the CIA since the 1980’s.
The rebels have also employed a public relations/lobbying organization based in Washington, D.C., called the Harbour Group. The principals of the Harbour Group include Hillary Clinton’s staff director from the 1992 presidential campaign of Bill Clinton. Another served as a spokesperson for the presidential campaigns of Ronald Reagan and other conservative Republicans. The third served as a public relations figure in the last three Democratic presidential conventions.
“You can figure out who’s going to win, and the name is not Gaddafi,” Nansan Saleri, the founder of the Houston-based Quantico Reservoir Impact company told the Washington Post. “Certain things about the mosaic are taking shape. The western companies are positioning themselves.”
