Following a resolution adopted by Libya’s new parliament asking the UN for help to deal with militia violence across the country, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on August 14 named Spanish diplomat Bernardino Léon as special envoy to Libya. Léon plans to visit Tripoli next week (though other sources say the date of his visit will be September 1), to seek a ceasefire between militia brigades from the northwestern city of Misrata and the western town of Zintan, that have turned the airport of the Libyan capital as well as civil areas into a battlefield.
A statement by his office said Leon’s Tripoli visit for talks would be conducted with the United Nations as the only international mediator accepted by all Libyan parties, Reuters reports. “It is in this framework that I am planning to travel to Tripoli as early as next week to continue to support the talks between the parties,” it said.
Described as “having played a leading role in enhancing the EU’s support to the countries in the Southern Mediterranean which are undergoing a democratic transition”, 49-year-old Léon is mainly known for serving as foreign policy adviser to Spain’s former prime minister Jose Luis Zapatero.
However, so far all mainstream media outlets are reluctant to reveal another major fact about the Spanish diplomat, namely his membership of the Bilderberg Group, a group aptly outlined as “a shadow world government threatening to take away our right to direct our own destinies by creating a disturbing reality” in Daniel Estulin’s new book The True Story of the Bilderberg Group. Among the members of the Bilderberg Group are familiar names like David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Gordon Brown, Angela Merkel, George Soros, Donald Rumsfeld and Rupert Murdoch. According to this Spanish language blog, Bernardino Léon also attended the annual top secret meetings of the group.
In the above screenshot we find Léon right below Henry Kissinger, the former US Secretary of State who in April 2011 stated that the US should launch a ground invasion of Libya and should keep the war running for at least another year (adding that “military men are just dumb, stupid, animals to be used as pawns in Foreign Policy”). On another occasion Kissinger declared: “We have no permanent friends and no permanent enemies, we only have permanent interests”.
And the interests of the West, represented by the power elite members of the Bilderberg Group, in Libya are plenty, as are the reasons why the West urgently needed to get rid of Africa’s hero Muammar Gaddafi. The question if a member of the Bilderberg Group will establish peace in warn-torn Libya – a war orchestrated long time ago by this very group – therefore is beyond rhetorical.
