‘Smoking Gun’ Witness From Bush Era Dead In Alleged Suicide

May 13, 2009

Libya (ChattahBox) – Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, the man who was tortured into giving evidence that Iraq had ties to al-Qaeda, has been found dead of alleged suicide in his Libyan prison cell.

Most of us will remember former president George W. Bush’s infamous speech given on October 7, 2002, where he spoke about the information that was given about Saddam Hussein and his connection to al-Qaeda. That information was found to be false, and for a time the Bush administration insisted that he had given it in an attempt to gain asylum into the US.

However, we now know that he was tortured into giving the information, and that the former terrorist had been speaking to human rights groups about what had happened to him during his time of interrogation, after he was sent to a CIA secret prison in 2002.

While the official report states that al-Libi committed suicide, many are questioning the timing of such an act. The fact that government sanctioned torture was used to coerce false information used for war is a strong enough implication in an of itself. But add to that the fact that he was an al-Qaeda operative, who for years disappeared off the radar when the facts came out about the so called ‘facts’ that led to Iraq, and the pieces seem to fall together.

I don’t think I have to say what it is that went on here.

    It’s probably better that you don’t say what went on here. If you do, you may be the next victim of the Bush thugs’ “involuntary assisted suicide” operations.

    Amen to that, Dotes.
