Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi provided al-Qaida with chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction before changing heart and agreeing to destroy his arms program, Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin has learned.

Libyan intelligence chief Musa Kussa told U.S. and UK spy agencies that tens of thousands of weapons had been produced at 10 secret sites in the country. Kussa has named hundreds of what he termed "sleeper" al-Qaida agents in Britain and the U.S.

Gadhafi's dramatic turnaround has earned him a future meeting with British Prime Minister Tony Blair and President Bush.

He was welcomed back on to the world stage with the understanding that his help to Osama bin Laden would never officially be mentioned.

Kussa escorted British officials to Libya's secret sites on what was described as "the best bus tour in intelligence history."

Not only has that new intelligence led to heightened terror alerts in the U.S. and Britain, but the agreement has prompted new threats on Gadhafi's life by al-Qaida terrorists.

In what one intelligence officer later called an "extraordinarily detailed debrief," Kussa revealed to U.S. and Bristish intelligence:


Al-Qaida obtained some of its weapons through a Brazilian arms dealer, Suekdew Siew, travelling on an Australian passport. He used an alias, David Sunkar. Siew spoke fluent Arabic and carried a letter of credit from the Baltic Bank of Reconstruction and Development in Riga, Latvia.

Other al-Qaida weapons purchasers were from the former Soviet Union.

Some weapons were flown out under diplomatic seal to Balkan airports on Libyan airlines. From there, they were transported to Afghanistan.

Other weapons were taken out of Libya through the Sudan and eventually by Arab dhows, small boats, to Yemen.

Kussa said he had "reliable information" that al-Qaida had stockpiled chemical and biological weapons in the Balkans.

It's worldnet daily...

Remember that story about Saddam's bodyguard (who was also a fighter pilot), the underground weapons tunnels, and the 'daring' escape in a 'Soviet Mirage 2000 fighter plane'???

This sounds like a case of 'same source, same BS'...

I tend to believe there may be some truth in this article.  The main point being the timing of Qaddafi's change of heart to give up his WMD.  I believe he thinks the weapons his country produced and sold may be used and he is trying to to pre-emptively save his own ass by coming clean.  I'm sure he believes when WMDs are deployed on Americans, that it won't take long to figure out which country they came from.  There is also the Anthrax that was mailed out 2 years ago.  The CIA is making a case for it to be international terrorism.  

Now if Libya has Anthrax of the same AMES strain, then there is the proof that they armed AL Q'aida.  Maybe .GOV already knows this.....
