CIA Agent leading rebellion?

Recently Hillary Clinton said when asked who was leading the rebellion in Libya, “We don't know as much as we would like to know and as much as we expect we will know. We're picking up information."

Gen. Khalifa Haftr has lived in Virginia for about two decades. He was a general in Gadaffi’s army in the l980s and led a military battle in Chad in which thousands of soldiers died. He was arrested and sentenced to die by Gadaffi. He fled to America where he has lived without employment for two decades. Not only has he supported a large family without employment he lives five miles from CIA headquarters. The conclusion among some is that Hifter is a CIA agent.According to Human Events, “Even a cursory Internet search ties Hifter to the CIA as far back as 1987.

John Gizzi of Human Events said he was told by Paul Wolfowitz, “the CIA shouldn’t be involved, simply because we should be right out in the open in our dealings with rebels. Let’s not reinforce the notion in the Middle East that the CIA is behind everything the Americans do.”

Hifter has maintained his ties to anti Gadaffi groups. He was recently appointed to lead the rebellion against Gadaffi and is now doing so among the rebels in Libya. He is in his late 60’s and it is said he has an obsessive hatred for Gadaffi.

According to ABC, Hifter predicted that the advance being undertaken by the rebels on Gadaffi’s home town Sirte would not be difficult and the city would fall quite easily. However when met by Gadaffi’s tanks and ammunitions the rebels were forced to turn and flee for safety.

A Libyan activist named Salem alHasi said, “ Hifter is popular among members of the Libyan army,” and by returning to Libya to lead the rebels, “he acted out of a sense of national responsibility.”

      thank you pop and eovery. I think it is interesting that an American CIA agent is leading the charge in Libya. It confuses me to tell you the truth, but then everything about this administration is confusing.

      I'm not sure where you found this nugget of information but I am sure I admire your find. Keep telling the truth mslizzee. The truth of a matter has a tendency to eventually rise to the surface and this battle is just getting started good.

      Up and awesome writing and sharing of information.

      thank you so much. I keep listening to the news for a mention of this man who apparently is extremely important in the Muslim world, but I've not heard anything.
