It used to be that when you thought about Libya, one thought about the most developed country on the African Continent, wealthy, with no national debt, tons of gold, rich in oil, free electricity, education, medical care, and shared oil wealth. Now, when one thinks of Libya, images of Iraq and Afghanistan will come to mind. Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya and a team of independent journalists working with him (among the last to leave Libya), have put all of the pieces together for us in this political puzzle of intrigue, betrayal, and genocide.
On Saturday evening, KPFK’s Dedon Kamathi had Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya on, with me as guest host, to discuss the second blockbuster documentation that Nazemroaya has researched: the United States finances terrorists and then fights them in the name of the global war on terror! Nowhere is that more evident than in the case of Libya where Nazemroaya dissects the National Endowment for Democracy and its direct links to criminals, including terrorists wanted by Interpol! I am certain that Pakistanis and Afghanis could recount similar tales, and the situation in Libya has led to a similarly tragic result.
Listen to Nazemroaya on Freedom Now at about 33 minutes in on this link:
