Clinton Emails: NATO Killed Gaddafi To Stop Gold-Backed Currency

Hillary Clinton emails reveal that NATO were told to kill Gaddafi due to Libya's plans to create a gold-backed currency

One of the newly released 3,000 Hillary Clinton emails published on New Year’s Eve reveals shocking evidence that Western nations used NATO to topple Libyan leader Gaddafi in order to thwart the leaders attempts to create a gold-backed currency, which would have competed with big banks in the West. 

The emails reveal that the French-led NATO military invasion of Libya was also given the go-ahead by the West in order to give France a larger share of Libyan oil production.

Thefreethoughtproject.com reports:

The April 2011 email, sent to the Secretary of State Hillary by unofficial adviser and longtime Clinton confidante Sidney Blumenthal with the subject line “France’s client and Qaddafi’s gold,” reveals predatory Western intentions.

The Foreign Policy Journal reports:

The email identifies French President Nicholas Sarkozy as leading the attack on Libya with five specific purposes in mind: to obtain Libyan oil, ensure French influence in the region, increase Sarkozy’s reputation domestically, assert French military power, and to prevent Gaddafi’s influence in what is considered “Francophone Africa.”

Most astounding is the lengthy section delineating the huge threat that Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves, estimated at “143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver,” posed to the French franc (CFA) circulating as a prime African currency.

The email makes clear that intelligence sources indicate the impetus behind the French attack on Libya was a calculated move to consolidate greater power, using NATO as a tool for imperialist conquest, not a humanitarian intervention as the public was falsely led to believe.

According to the email:

This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be 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).

(Source Comment: According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya.)

The email provides a peek behind the curtain to reveal how foreign policy is often carried out in practice. While reported in the media that the Western backed Libyan military intervention is necessary to save human lives, the real driving factor behind the intervention was shown to be the fact that Gaddafi planned to create a high degree of economic independence with a new pan-African currency, which would lessen French influence and power in the region.

The evidence indicates that when French intelligence became aware of the Libyan initiative to create a currency to compete with the Western central banking system, the decision to subvert the plan through military means began, ultimately including the NATO alliance.

    It never surprises me what kind of propaganda the liberal media will come up with. This story aligns itself to the Obama/Hillary story of arming terrorists in Libya against supposedly NATO policy and why NATO never went after the US for backing the French.

    • MrsRealism

      Prove the story is true… then we’ll talk.

      • Chris

        Hillary Clinton emails is the proof and here are US marine showing it off. http://i.imgur.com/MKIZi.jpg

          That doesn’t cut it! Are you that easily convinced of stuff?

          • Plain Dealer

            What will convince you that this is “true”? When it is reported on an “authoritative” news source like ABC, CBS, or CNN? 6 corporations control 90% of the U.S. media: http://www.businessinsider.com/these-6-corporations-control-90-of-the-media-in-america-2012-6 There is NO free press. And there is no “conservative” or “liberal” press. 90% of the U.S. press is CORPORATE controlled and at the top of the economic pyramid are the international bankers who don’t give a sh*t about you or America (and in fact are trying their hardest to destroy America. What do you think the Great Recession of 2997 by the Bush Crime Family was about?). You obviously still don’t have a clue what is going on, and you tell someone else “Are you that easily convinced of stuff?”. You should go back to drinking beer and beating your kids.

            Unfortunately, throwing insults just gets in the way of convincing people.

          • MrsRealism

            sigh.
            I know about media consolidation and corporate control and I understand that nations do shitty things to other nations to stay on top and take advantage while looking out for their own interests. But that doesn’t mean that every shit story you find in the ‘alternate press’ is true. LOL and OMG. Where is the screenshot of this alleged e-mail that proves so much?
            From Metabunk:
            “(This story was also published by Foreign Policy Journal, a site dedicated to often bizarre, overblown, and alarmist critiques of Western international politics, and the Centre for Research on Globalisation, a subsidiary of Globalresearch.ca.)

            My first reaction however is that the article seems replete with instances of hyperbole and non-sequitur, and the author draws conclusions that even his/her own readings of the emails fail to support. It is also of interest to note that none of the direct quotes from the emails support the article’s central allegation as expressed in the headline.”

            You probably think the Gulf of Tonkin was never a manufactured story by our own Navy.

          • RaeJeanne

            Are you that easily convinced the regular media is honest?

          • tucker101

            Why oh why are you soooo convinced that this story is false? One only need to look at history. This story makes perfect sense and explains a lot. US foreign policy is pretty evil but France? We are rookies compared to them.

          • Patsy Barrett

            I am.

        • leisa

          I’ve seen similar pics and heard the stories from people there….it’s real.

      • tucker101

        One only need look at how France treats it’s former colonies in Africa. Totally predatory, controlling their currency and loaning it back at huge interest gains. Controlling imports and exports. France is even worse than the US when it comes to imperialistic forgein policy.

        • David Langley

          It’s not France, its the tyrants in control of France.

            The globalist banking cabal. One day the Rothschild’s will swing from tall tree’s.

          • leisa

            One can only hope Frank!….they have cheated, deceived and are killing the American taxpayer. Remember when they came up missing 9 trillions dollars? And who do people think is going to have to repay that? We will. They actually run the US….anyone that thinks otherwise is simply delusional.

          • Frank Kush

            Sometimes the thought of all this corruption, greed and destruction of others is just too much for me to even think about. Sickening to say the least…

  • SuchindranathAiyer

    Clinton e.mails confirm what we knew years before it happened. When Qaddafi was bringing the OAU together with Egypt, Iraq and Syria to bring back the Gold Standard that Richard Nixon junked in favour of printing currency to pay for oil and led the world into the Petro Dollar trap of Islam with Sheikh Yamani and Henry Kissinger.

    • leisa

      Thank you!…..somebody knows their history! We’re were printing up currency (as you all know, is not worth crap) and getting something physical in return! We did promise Saudi military protection of their oil reserves….that’s about all they got from us in real physical goods. And that’s how we built up our military, with these promise notes from the Federal Reserve and receiving real physical goods…..we have tricked and deceived people everywhere…..so sure….they hate us.

  • Ruben Rosenberg Colorni

    The link to the FOIA request of the e-mail in question is invalid. Can the editors (or the readers) provide a working link please?

  • Ida Tarbell

    I’m sure the Gaddaffi gold backed currency ploy was not something so powerful the Saudi-backed Petrodollar that is present US Currency, is in any danger from. These Clinton emails are fruit of a poison tree, the one started by a GOP House Committee to undermine Hillary’s candidacy in 2016. Though many Republicans kid themselves the Ben Ghazzi emails were political dynamite, they’re little more than the GOP minority talking to itself. Independents who decide all close elections haven’t risen to the bait in the least. Ploys like this one are why all the GOP plots to undermine Obama, Hillary and the Dems, are doomed to failure. When you plot political strategy you have to notice the new voters who couldn’t care a fig about he so-called issues you’re raising.

    • David Langley

      Republicans a re the same as Democrats. They, like FOX news, are just a prop to make it look like there is someone in DC that cares about real American values and who will fight the Commies in the Democratic Party. The suckers that fall for this phony dichotomy become the tools of tyranny. We all saw the videos of Hillary saying things that we know, through real facts and her own words, to be lies as she speaks to the press, Congress, and the American people. At least one of those is a federal offense, and they all should be, but so many people are so fixated on the “side” they think they are on, they fail to see what’s really going on. That’s exactly what they want. The horror and failure that was the Benghazi attack of a US diplomat should never have happened, but until your masters tell you to, you won’t care. Your masters tell you you should be more concerned with the plight of the sexual deviant not being able to go into the bathroom of the opposite sex, so you are.

      What Gop? What republicans and what democrats? They’re exactly the same.The Rothschilds know who to rig the elections for to do their bidding

  • Queen Mennon

    the death of Gadhafi was a severe blow to africa and african people. obama goes to europe and encourages them to stay united and not withdraw from the european union but yet the west does not want to see the unification of africa. hypocrites, much?

    • http://www.facebook.com/muffinmanphotography Gleb the Muffin Man

      Are you mad? Unification of Africa? What the hell are you talking about?

      • Queen Mennon

        if you do not know what I am talking about, then we are clearly not of like mind. I do not wish to waste time explaining anything 2 U

        • http://www.facebook.com/muffinmanphotography Gleb the Muffin Man

          How could you possibly unify Africa when there are at least half a dozen wars going on there right now? There are barely any uncorrupt leaders on the whole continent, which is quite unfortunate. Corruption needs to be fixed first, then you can talk about unification. How was Gaddafi going to unify Africa?

          • Queen Mennon

            the west is destabelizing africa and the whole damn world

          • leisa

            NO Queen….the Arab Spring destabilized everything…..the only good thing that came out of that was the rule of Dictatorship ended. However it didn’t end the corruption with the Muslim Brotherhood….remember Egypt? I agree Obama shouldn’t have meddled but however he did manage to help Egypt rid themselves of a President, had him thrown in jail and he was later proven innocent! His buddy he helped become President afterwards is not sitting in jail with the M/B. Because while that was going on, the Muslim Brotherhood moved in, took over and caused chaos.

    • Athena Emmanouilidis

      The U.S. government is corrupt as all heck.They (almost all of them) are the antichrist.If you’re a Christian you understand.They only care about money and big corporations.The people are nothing to them.We have no real elections any more, they’re all just a dirty game.

      • leisa

        You hit the nail on the head Athena!….the system is rigged by the “Shadow Government” which is the Elite or Rothchilds. They have bought Presidents, started wars and crushed societies…..it’s all a big game for this evil bunch. However, I want to take it one step further and say….the two party system is a scam. These people work for the same bunch of Elites and they do the same thing. The left wing vs right wing are wings of the same bird. They have us cheering for a tribe and acting with tribal mentality. We truly need to clean house and rid ourselves of these career politicans.

  • Erin Anderson

    Sadam was going to replace the dollar with the euro in 2000, and look what happen to him.

    • leisa

      you’re right, however it goes back further than that….. and yeah, switching the currency started this thing off….he had promised to sell using Petrodollar and he switched to Euros. Soon after the military delivered them some “democracy”, they crushed their military and destroyed the infrastructure, and about 500.000 children were murdered. The Clintons were fully aware of this, it took place under ole “slick willy”. After we crushed them we imposed sanctions on them saying they could NOT rebuild the infrastructure. They were forced to start selling using the Petrodollar they (the OPEC) promised and arranged with Nixon. So this BS goes back for several years.

  • Erin Anderson

    Democrats better find a new candidate for president because Hillay Clinton is going to prison.

            The Scandinavians, for one. Plus, Democratic socialism isn’t the same as Socialism anyway. I don’t want to live under a corrupt oligarchy, but that’s what we have now.

      • AVA777

        Bernie is a socialist. As I understand it, socialism always leads to communism which is dreadful. But take a look at the socialist country Venezuela. Read about the situation the citizens are now in. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-education-idUSKCN0Z222E

        • Kathy Stuart

          Bernie is a Democratic Socialist; a completely different thing than true socialism. You can look it up.

            Shut up. I’m a military vet and know boatloads of vets who wlll vote for Bernie. LMAO

            The key word is Socialist Full Definition of socialism:

            1

            : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

            2

            a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

            b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

            3

            : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

          • oh_look

            The problem with this is we have some groups working and productive while others are feeding off that work and doing nothing. In the great Democratic Socialist societies that were working (note “were working” as things have now changed with the advent of millions of immigrants from culturally different regions), such as Sweden, Norway, there was a homogeneous society and it was actually working well until the Globalists opened the doors to some of the most culturally different people who have brought down the average IQ in these nations overnight. Sweden has 2nd leading rape rate now. It used to have one of lowest in the world.
            Also, the Wealthy, in the USA, are feeding off the productive classes, by extracting trillions of dollars for War funding and Banking bailouts.

            I read that Hillary had a private server in her NY home and that server contained top secret government information on it. Hillary broke the law and it’s time for Hillary to learn that she’s not above the law. Wise up liberal, your precious little Hillary Clinton is corrupt.

            Our justice system is part of our government which is controlled by the wealthy.Do you really believe they will do the right thing? All that Shillary has to do is hold a meeting with the judges and pay them off.She’ll come to court looking all smug as usual.

          I’m for Bernie all the way,but this is my opinion: Hillary and Trump have set up this b.s. that they’re running against each other,mudslinging and all.Really it was set up to be fixed.The American people are being duped.As soon as Bernie “lost ” the last primary, the next day I hear on the news that Hillary is now beating Trump by 20%.It’s all a big fat joke to them bc they know it’s been decided by the powers that be that the general election will be rigged too in Shillary’s favor.Think about it.

      She should go to prison with the Rothschild’s and the rest of the western banking cabal. Clinton, Obama, Bush and many others have been puppets to the bankers since the formation of the Federal Reserve in the late 1800’s.
