A prominent political analyst says NATO forces have teamed up with the terrorist group al-Qaeda to rebuild Libya after the departure of its dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

In an exclusive interview with Press TV, Webster Tarpley, author and historian, said that the new rebel commander of Tripoli is a top al-Qaeda leader who has worked for the Afghanis and fought against the United States.

“The new military dictator of Tripoli is none other than the infamous Abdul Hakim Belhadj, an international terrorist, a famous, notorious “genocidalist” of al-Qaeda who has carried out international terrorism all across the globe,” Tarpley said.

“He was trained personally by Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan, has boasted in the past of taking 25 terrorists into Afghanistan, boasted of killing the American soldiers, and was for a time a US prisoner of war,” he noted.

Under the recognition of Libya’s new emerging government, Belhadj will receive “billions of dollars from the United States including the most modern weapons, diplomatic support, recognition, media support, moral support, Special Forces support, and so on.”

NATO launched a major air campaign against the forces of the Libyan regime in mid-March under a UN mandate to “protect the Libyan population.”

Speculators have alluded to the point that NATO has been using al-Qaeda rebels during ground operations.

The US launched a full-fledged war on al-Qaeda in 2001 after the group admitted to aerial attacks on America’s financial, political and defense centers in September of the same year.
