American Media Silent On CIA Ties To Libya Rebel Commander
[ One of the most illuminating factors about this attack on Libya
– will be who installs Gaddafi’s replacement ]

It has been six days since Khalifa Hifter was appointed the top military commander for the Libyan rebel forces
fighting the regime of Muammar Gaddafi.
His appointment was noted by reporter Nancy Youssef of McClatchy Newspapers,
a US regional chain that includes the Sacramento Bee and the Kansas City Star.
Two days later, another McClatchy journalist, Chris Adams,
wrote a brief biographical sketch of Hifter that left the implication, without saying so explicitly,
that he was a longtime CIA asset.
It headlined the fact that after defecting from a top position in Gaddafi’s army,
Hifter had lived in northern Virginia for some 20 years,
as well as noting that Hifter had no obvious means of financial support.
