Is Gadhaffi losing? Au contraire. In total contradiction to the
propaganda push on CNN, sources inside Libya say Gadhaffi soldiers have
retaken a number of key towns.
In a surprise announcement, sources inside Libya say that most of
Misurata has been taken back by Libyan forces last night and today. In
the process, Gadhaffi soldiers have liberated 1250+ Libyan prisoners of
war. According to tribal leaders, Libyan forces now control the port
Tribal leaders also declare that Zawia, Garyan, Sorman, and Sabratha
are secure, in contrast to claims by foreign reporters in Tripoli and
Djerba (Tunisia) that they have been seized by rebels.
There are pockets of rebels in all of these areas, but they are
isolated and surrounded by the Libyan army. Tribal families are fighting
with Gadhaffi’s army to defeat the Rebels.
Whereas Gadhaffi had made an offer to slow down fighting during the
Islamic holy month of Ramadan, in a semi-cease fire, in fact Gadhaffi’s
soldiers are fighting in full force. The Libyan army is fully motivated,
and sources inside Tripoli say there is also an “electronic army of
young people, who are computer experts.”
They are mobilizing to track Rebel communications and positions, in a
parallel competition with U.S. high tech surveillance from the sea.
Sources in Tripoli have thrown into question the defection of Nassr
al-Mabrouk, the Deputy Interior Minister appeared alive and well on
Libyan TV today.
He apparently went to Egypt for some surgery. In the interview, he
reaffirmed his loyalty to Ghadafi. Claims of his defection are being
compared to phony U.S./NATO claims of the assassination of Gadhaffi’s
son last week.
There’s much talk that Khalifa Hefter was captured by Libyan forces.
This would be a big blow to the rebels and the TNC in the light of the
death of Younis (rebel lead commander) who was killed by rebels working
for al Qaeda.
Khalifa Hefter was working as a CIA agent for some 20 years in
Virginia, before the War started. The U.S. dropped him into Libya to
help lead the TNC and direct mercenaries on the ground.
Claims by CNN to the contrary, sources inside Libya insist that NATO
is not winning and will not win. They say the Libyan people have shown
tremendous solidarity, ironically instigated by NATO.
