Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

The new AIM/Citizens Commission on Benghazi report has some fascinating information about the financial motives behind the overthrow of Moammar Gadhafi in Libya. It says:

For one thing, [Hillary confidant] Sidney Blumenthal and others apparently had some ideas about post-Qaddafi business deals in Libya. According to Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Blumenthal’s real motivation was “money,” and specifically a deal to bring U.S. defense contractor Osprey Global Solutions  (in which Blumenthal held a personal stake) together with the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Libyan Transitional National Council (TNC) government in a post-Qaddafi Libya.

Europeans, especially the French, also looked at the Libya situation through a financial lens. Some of them saw Qaddafi’s growing financial independence as a threat to their own financial interests. One of the Blumenthal emails, dated April 2, 2011, discusses Qaddafi’s stockpiles of gold and silver, valued at more than $7 billion. Reportedly, this wealth was to have been used to establish “a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA)” in a bid to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa.  In 2011, French President Nicolas Sarkozy called the Libyan leader and Libya’s reported plan to quit selling oil in U.S. dollars “a threat to the financial security of the world.”  What happened to Qaddafi’s gold and silver stocks after his defeat has not been disclosed.

Do you read that? What happened to Qaddafi’s gold and silver stocks after his defeat has not been disclosed.
