GADAFFI

 

The U.K. Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee has released a transcript of two phone calls which were made between former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, the late leader of Libya. Blair delicately tries to get Gaddafi give up power, but In these calls Gaddafi issued a warning to Blair that Islamist militants would attack Europe if his regime imploded.

The two phone calls made to Gaddafi in February 2011, as Libya descended further into chaos. Just weeks before a coalition carried out airstrikes against government forces in Libya and eight months before Gaddafi was beaten to death.

The Libyan leader insists he is a victim of an Islamist conspiracy.

“The story is simply this. An organisation has laid down sleeping cells in North Africa. Called the al Qaeda Organisation in North Africa… The sleeping cells in Libya are similar to dormant cells in America before 9/11.”

Gaddafi made similar claims publicly at the time, but in the private call to Mr Blair he goes further, predicting the Islamists’ ultimate aim was to launch attacks on Europe.

“They keep saying things like Mohammed is the Prophet. Similar to bin Laden. They are paving the way for him in North Africa. They want to control the Mediterranean and then they will attack Europe. Need to explain to the International Community.”
