It is now being reveled for the first time publicly that armed forces from Qatar were operating against Gaddafi in Libya. Qatari chief of staff Maj. Gen. Hamad bin Ali al-Atiya stated:
“We were among them and the numbers of Qataris on ground were hundreds in every region.”
It was long known that Qatar, the West, and other Gulf States, among others, had financed the so-called rebellion. It has been known that Al Jeezera, Qatar state-owned media company, had been the mouthpiece of the so-called “rebels.” Not only was Gaddafi faced with NATO and MI6 intervention, but Qatari military forces had boots on the ground too.
Even with all these forces arrayed against the Gaddafi regime, the regime fought tooth-and-nail for months. In fact, the regime was easily sweeping aside the so-called rebellion until NATO bombings changed the equation. This admission shows that what occurred in Libya was not simply a popular revolt by Libyans or a civil war, but an orchestrated plot that involved Western airpower, MI6, CIA, Gulf-state financing, and, now, even Qatari troops.
