Libyan "Opposition" Literally Running Protests From Washington

Libyan opposition literally running protests from Washington

When Qaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam, accused foreigners and opposition groups of fomenting unrest within Libya, it appears no truer words have been spoken. It is not surprising BBC and the rest of the corporate owned media went through extensive measures to discredit his speech.

Unbelievable revelations have been discovered regarding the unrest in Libya. The leader of Libya’s opposition group organizing the protests both inside and outside of Libya, is currently in Washington D.C. as he and his organization direct the upheaval and bedlam consuming the North African nation.

An interview with Ibrahim Sahad of the National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL) on ABC Australia, features every talking point covered by the mainstream corporate media from over the past week, all with the White House and Washington Monument looming over him in the background.

Sahad echos the Soros/Brzezinski International Crisis Group’s calls for the UNSC to convene and discuss intervening in Qaddafi’s defiance.

Ibrahim Sahad and his NFLS formed the National Conference of the Libyan Opposition (NCLO) in London in 2005. This group specifically went out of its way to appear not to be influenced or supported by the United States. Perhaps to cement this notion, Huffington Post featured documents released by the NCLO in a wikileaks-esque move to pin US support on Qaddafi. Of course, as with all the unrest in the Middle East, as the facts trickle out we find out this is not to avoid confusion, it is to avoid the truth.

The Sahad’s NCLO began organizing the February 17th “Day of Rage” right on cue as Egypt fell so the mainstream media apparatus could swing around and put the focus on Libya. Conveniently, the media needs only move from Cairo to Egypt’s western border and wait for Sahad’s men on the ground to secure them a base of operations, presumably in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi. Qaddafi apparently understands the role of NGOs and the foreign media, which is why they are not in the streets of Libya’s cities, and coverage has been admittedly daunting.

It turns out that both the corporate owned news and the US State Department/corporate funded are getting their reports entirely from Sahad’s NCLO in Washington, who claims to be in contact with “first hand” reports out of Libya. Other NFSL members including one in Dubai, are also supplying the media with this “first hand” information. These reports have become the basis for accusations of “genocide”, the convening of the UNSC, economic sanctions, threats directed toward Libyan security forces that attempt to quell protesters, and NATO enforced no-fly zones.

The Neo-Con infested National Endowment for Democracy and its army of US funded NGOs recently made an official statement urging the US and EU to confront the Libyan “massacres” in the UNSC and Human Rights Council. This is still amidst reports BBC admits are “impossible to verify,” based on information coming from and a Washington based Libyan protester leader.

It should also be noted that a Ghonim-esque Libyan blogger is being reported by US corporate funded as a “Twitter user to follow.” He goes by the name “EnoughGaddafi” and is the webmaster of EnoughGaddafi’s work can also be found archived on Washington based Ibrahim Sahad’s NFSL site ( was hacked according to

Again we are told the protests are spontaneous, inspired by the Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings. Again we are told it is the youth yearning for freedom and “democracy.” But when we look behind the curtain, we see yet another old man from Washington pulling the levers, blowing the smoke, and flashing the lights.

If you are religious, pray for the people in the streets of Libya, many of whom may be merely swept up in this cruel hoax. The US and their stooges will only be disheartened if their plot doesn’t succeed. The rivers of blood that will flow to ensure that it does is never entered into their calculations.

When your US State Department sponsored “liberation” comes to you, you will hope others elsewhere will stand in solidarity with the truth, not the emotions of an engineered hoax. You will hope others take it upon themselves to speak the truth amongst the deafening din of corporate media propaganda. So spread the word, wake your neighbors up, and most importantly, boycott the corporations whose greed drives this agenda and whose members are planning and carrying it out.

Do it for the Libyans, the Egyptians, the Tunisians, and do it for yourself. The conflagration is consuming the Middle East and North Africa now, it may consume you next.

Voice of the Libyan People

By Nick Grace C., February 11, 1998.

The Voice of the Libyan People had a four year career with broadcasts against Muammar Qadhafi and Libya between 1984 and 1988. It was proclaimed as the voice for the National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL), a group consisting of exiled opponents of Qadhafi's regime headed by Aly Abuzaakouk that was founded in 1981. This group, according to Perry Shultz,, established ties with the CIA which saw the organization as the most potent opposition against Tripoli (Perry, p.165).

The station began broadcasting from the Sudan in March 1984 as a psychological warfare tool, just two months before the NFSL attempted a coup. The coup was crushed and an estimated 75 exiles were killed by the Libyan government, resulting in strained relations between Libya and the Sudan. As tensions heightened, Qadhafi supported a successful revolution in the Sudan and the US-friendly government was overthrown in 1985. The Voice of the Libyan People was immediately taken off the air by the new Sudanese leadership in April of that year (Soley, p.134).

The CIA planned another covert action, called Flower / Rose, which consisted of an armed NFSL rebellion based in Egypt, Algeria and Chad in 1986 while the US military failed to knock out Qadhafi with its airstrikes, and the Voice of the Libyan People resumed its transmissions. By late 1988, however, Secretary of State George Schultz stopped the plans and CIA funding for the NFSL was effectively yanked. As a result, the station was no longer broadcast from Egypt and Chad and the station disappeared from the airwaves.

The Voice of the Libyan People was nearly a textbook case of Cold War covert broadcasting action. It was a "gray" clandestine that was on to engage in psychological war and to prepare Libya for an invasion. The loss of support from Sudan came as a setback for both the NFSL and the CIA, but separate contingencies were developed and the station continued its work. But after the failure of multiple attempts for covert action, its own value collapsed and the station fell into oblivion.

An interesting endnote, the Voice of the Libyan People was reported to be broadcasting again in March 1994 via Turkish satellite transponders. The use of a satellite to broadcast was done because "Qadhafi cannot jam this radio in any way." According to reports, it used a 7.38 MHz audio subcarrier of the Turkish commercial HBB TV transponder on the Eutelsat-II-F2 satellite with 11617 MHz vertical polarization. Renown clandestine radio expert George Zeller correctly notes that "It seems obvious that this is a USA-financed operation. I do not think that the grassroots Libyan opposition has the cash to finance a satellite feed for their clandestine programming" (Zeller, p.19).

The NFSL maintains a webpage that is mostly in Arabic but is interesting nonetheless:, and their newspaper "Al Inqad."

Should the Voice of the Libyan People return to shortwave, listeners may try Al Inqad's address in the US: 4444 Cane Run Road, Suite 118, Louisville, KY 40210, USA.
