Intelligence Outfit: Foreign Special Forces Behind Tripoli Showdown

British, French, Jordanian, Qatari military crack forces are behind compound siege

Steve Watson
Aug 23, 2011


An intelligence-gathering outlet that has proven accurate in the past has reported today that far from being merely a rebel uprising, the showdown in Tripoli over the last 48 hours is being “spearheaded” by British, French, Jordanian and Qatari Special Operations forces.

Israeli open source intelligence gathering outfit DEBKAfile reports:

“This is the first time Western and Arab ground troops have fought on the same battlefield in any of the Arab revolts of the last nine months and the first time Arab soldiers have taken part in a NATO operation.”

As we reported yesterday, the operation, nicknamed “Mermaid Dawn”, is being directed by US and NATO forces. The rebels have received training and arms from special forces and are being directed by Western intelligence operatives on the ground in Libya.

NATO is now planning a “humanitarian” occupation of Libya with thousands of British and American soldiers, risking the possibility that troops could be sent into yet another quagmire to rival Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Debkafile report continues:

“Our military sources report that the British have deployed SAS commandoes and France, 2REP (Groupe des commando parachutiste), which is similar to the US Navy DELTA unit, as well as DINOP commandos. Fighting too are Jordan’s Royal Special Forces, specialists in urban combat and capturing fortified installations like the Qaddafi compound in Tripoli, and the Qatari Special Forces, which were transferred from Benghazi where they guarded rebel Transitional National Council leaders.”

The report also states that the rebel fighters being directed by these special forces groups are very uncoordinated small groups of tribal fighters.

“NATO is trying to import better-trained fighters by sea from Benghazi and Misrata.” the report states. This information dovetails with intelligence revealed by journalist Webster Tarpley on yesterday’s nationally syndicated Alex Jones show.

DEBKAfile notes that its military sources say many key facilities within Gaddafi’s compound, which is now under seige, are located underground.

The “chambers are interconnected by a network of corridors, some broad enough to accommodate tanks. The network branches out to the sea and locations outside Tripoli.” the report states. Indeed, it is believed that Gadaffi 12th Tank Division is stationed in these vast tunnels.

This indicates that the “victory” scenes playing out across the media at time of writing with rebels clambering over statues within the grounds are somewhat premature.

DEBKAfile’s previous analysis has proven to be on the money. Indeed, back in July the website received intelligence indicating that should Gadaffi continue to resist an agreement to step down before the UN mandated September 2nd deadline, then NATO was prepared to instigate a crushing military blow in which the United States had also agreed to take part.

  1. If you look closely at some of the soldiers in the background on CNN, they are clearly Caucasian. Some even look to be wearing US fatigues.

    • Off topic: Momar, supporting the GQ look.. Much better, sometimes when your enemy is in your face, all you can do is smiile back…. LOL But. Seriouly, hey Momar, that’s a good look for you, all that is Missing is some big yellow Elton Jhon Glasses, and a Geto Blaster playing ” I’m Still Standing”. Get your people together and do it, it should be big fun.. Americans will love it..

      • Yeah, caught that too. It’s all staged.

        • Most are French ,frogs.. Aaperently it’s their duty to escort Al-Qeada.. Here we spend 4.5 trillion Dollars, to kill Al-Qeada, and all the money did is provide them an Air Craft Carrier, and French escort.. How, wonderful…

  2. erik prince has been in the middle east for a while now, all the events began not long after he moved there – research it:




  3. Anyone notice the white ID cards many of these rebels seem to be wearing around their necks??


    • That’s actually, back stage pass, to movie set they. Are filming on..

    • We now have new rating, like a bad B, movie… This will one will rated NAQ…

  4. Here we go a-gain… WMD’s, Yellow Cake, cash of wepons…. Back to the Bush administration line, CNN..What a load of SHHhhhheeeeet… The BS just keeps getting deeper….

    • Someone could make a fortune, making tiolet paper with Obama, Hillary, Bush, Cheney, and 90% of the member of Congress pictures through out the roll.. That way each you wipe, you can reflect on the wonderful job they have done. Alex, there is something you need in your online store..

      • This Kimberly Dozier, always write for White House PROPOGANDA, CIA, as well DOUGLAS BIRCH, saying the Kaddafi, regime doing all the killing indecrimantly, when the fact is Al-Qeada and French Nato forces are the ones, killing…

        • Where does all this end, thry just picked up the Iraq, playbook and are tossing out as we are to stupid, to remember all that crap..

      • HAHAHA!!! I like that idea. Reminds me of “Spaceballs: The Toilet Paper”. Remember: “Merchandising! Merchandising! Merchandising!”


  6. Obama: “Let’s be honest, I need a dance partner here, and the floor is empty,”

    he said. This statement truly shows his weakness as a leader and as a commander in chief…AMERICA’S worst President ever!!!! yes, lets be honest …

    Obama: “Doing things on my own is tempting…but that’s not how our system works” REMEMBER WHAT Bush said…it would be easier if this was a dictatorship………..OBVIOUSLY THESE STATEMENTS REFLECT THAT THEY KNOW AMWRICA IS NOT RAN BY THE PREIDENT………….. BUT BY THE NWO …………………………


  7. This is a perfect dirty war – use foreign rebels as canon fodder to do the dirty work while NATO assists from the air. De-stabilize the ground while US forces and their allies wait to make their move. Text book stuff, whether its moral or not doesn’t matter to the global bankers.

    • plenty of sf types were on the ground. those bombs need help getting to their targets.

      and who else to carry off the gold?

    • sweet thanks bro but i have read all these already…. nice archive tho.. awaking the sheeple one day at a time

  10. So the UN has aided someone in stealing an entire country…Interesting…Now, as the central bank is set up, we can all eagerly watch to see what the starting value on an acre of land will be. I wonder, which will be less valuable, an acre in Tripoli, or an acre in Misrata?

    Destruction = profit. This was never a peace mission. This was thievery. COMMON THIEVERY. And we all watched and became OK with dictatorship.

  11. You’re going to force Godaffi from his home to go into hiding with his family in tow?
    God is going to evacuate Obama with a huge earthquake to remind eveyone
    Jesus doesn’t like their tactics of bombing the innocents daily for weeks on end using shock bombs to scare people into submission by keeping them awake!

    Damnable US. Military planners got shook up too! –e

  12. koo koo Coup Coup We have clearly identified the Ceausescu’s of the planet. If one tyrant falls how about the rest fall with them ! The money trail leading to the so called enemy and friendlies multi turncoat operation is consensus reality public knowledge. Tyrants are supposed to be in prison ,not running the governments with full double standards in their favor to commit any crime they wish. It’s nonsense and unacceptable!

  13. There is still about 100 “suitcase” nukes missing from the former USSR.I wonder if Gadaffi has any of them?

    • If he did he’d plant one in your home wouldn’t he?

  14. I think most people here are a little bit confused. This site has made a great contribution to enlightening people in regard to the truth behind 9/11, the globalist agenda, CFRs, Trilaterals, etc, but that does not mean that every outcome or event responds to such linearity (simplicity) of view. As Lenin said, the ruling elite is not a monolitic block, there are always contradictions of interests among factions inside. In the imperialist stage those contradictions appear among nations, mostly capitalist nations. For the first time since the American revolution we are witnessing a disguised confrontation between England and the US. In Lybia, England and France were upfront and forced the US to follow. Certainly NATO represents the US, but it is there without choice too. It does not make sense to advocate democracy, freedon, limited government (Ron Paul’s agenda) and then support a tyranic, fascist regime as Gaddafi’s.

    • Goadaffi is a fighter against the Nwo! Everything the Nwo has said about him most people believed like you, but Godaffi is for sharing without too much government overhead like in Amerika!

      The founding father’s of Amerika didn’t sign on for big Fed shots!

      Neither does Godaffi!

      He’s done nothing wrong that much compared with Israel!
      Amerika forgives Israel all the time for hateful crimes like with Gaza! Forgven!!!
      Libya…not forgiven!!!

      Godaffi has instead lost many of his younger kids to Amerikan Jewish military chicanery!

      The Jews hate Godaffi and the Arabs their half brothers so they insisted on putting Godaffi on America’s wanted list… dead of alive for no good reason except he was the one who threw the bums out of his country!

      Oooops I mean Nwo agents, — I mean Amerikan oil execs! –And started a pricing climb for all oil rich countries who sucked off the West for their oil at competitive prices Godaffi set! You don’t think that made all the Oil giants vindictive?

      • sounds true to me , of course now they can use libya as a base to start attacking other countries.
        funny how quick they were to jump to the defense of the libyan protesters hasnt anyone heard of the slaughter of protesters in bahrain??
        on a daily basis they are attacked by bahrain regime armys and saudi backed troops.
        these atrocities are fine coz not only is it home to usa biggest naval airbase but also run by a NWO puppet royal family for the last 200 years!!!!
        israel has broken countless international laws and yet not even so much as a “tut” from the whitehouse. you really couldnt mke this up!!

        • Exactly what I was seeing and worse! Isreal is the Antichrist in my view! A perfect personification! The fun part is after the Nwo has there way the Bible says there will be 3.5 years of trouble so bad it will be worse than anything between the beginning of the world 6000 years ago till now! This is true! Worse than all that time is coming, so it’s going to get worse before it get’s better! A third of the trees destroyed, a third of green grass on earth burned etc. The Nwo searching people out who refuse to be marked digitally by an injected chip connected to the central computer that can speak! etc. clic my name and see issue guide!

    • Saudi Arabia is a blatant double standard based tyranny regime. So is Palestine and Israel. The tyrants are all in bed together,always have been,and always will be until they are stopped being coddled and treated as any serial violent offenders are expected to be. If NATO is not there by choice then who has hijacked NATO ?

      • You sound like you know what you’re talking about but not all is true! I suggest you don’t speak with authority! You have none! Jesus does! let Him live in you and give you a new perspective! His thoughts are above yours and mine! clic my name and see issue guide! Take the red pill! Or the Blue?

  15. US Military .. wise up Man!! .. you guys have the “key” for sure..”STAND DOWN”. You can stop this insanity instantly. And I mean everything. None of this can proceed without your compliance. It could not be more apparent that our nation many others are threatened by your being a “tool” in this insanity.

    • Sorry bud! The US military is could no longer be a US. entity!

      It’s the property of the Nwo who somehow swindled it out of the hands of the President has now given it to the Israelis to do with as they please or something like this!

      – Any way you look at it it’s no longer under US control! If it were, it would be similarly the same! — Confused more?

      Well at least I’m trying to explain the hidden deeper things possibly going on!

      • The tyrants are currently smashing their own thumbs with their own hammers. The lower to mid and lower upper ranks are the majority and have a clear bead drawn on the multiple turncoat pro harm and greed betrayers hiding behind pen and brass. We are in world war 3 guerrilla war where factions of tyrants as usual profit from turning friends in to enemies,enemies into more hostile enemies,the whole snuff film of it all,and an overall double standard based monopoly on every gang,government cult and so on.

        • Yes I see the betraying! Sadam friend of Amerika hung by the neck and nation invaded and taken over! Libya invaded by proxie! Godaffi betrayed by Betraeus the new head of the FBI is it? or the CIA..?.

          I forget! Any of you NSA types want to help me out? Yea you!

          I met a few of you in your snappy uniforms in cherry hill Beltsville one day! Asked if you were listening in on the internet! ha!

        • You said yes!

    • man i just read their going to take away pensions. thats CRAZY! imagine surviving 20 years in the friggin military just to have the pencil knecked wallstreet whores tell you that YOUR money really BELONGS to THEM???

      huh?? i think its pretty clear here that the banksters and globalists think they can do whatever they want. well they should – the military obeys when the bank says jump.

      what a friggin mess huh? what next? church of bernanke? soon theyll be walking down the street c*ck slapping people with a mercenary body guard of crooked cops saying in perfect cartmanese “you will respect mah author-atah!”

      • Take it easy! Invest in gold every cent you have! Leave the country in a caravan and wait outside the country learn to pray as you go!

        clic my name to take the red pill! See issue guide to enter the Rabbit hole!

        Or take the blue pill and go back to sleep! Morpheus

  16. Wouldn’t it be funny if Gaddafi lets them all into the compound and blows it sky high?

    • He’s an army officer Arabic bedouin living desert fashion life hearing from God all his life austere as can be living in a Tent!

      What do you think he’s capable of?

  17. Isn’t Elenin also getting closer….its affects on the planet cannot be ruled out since it entered into our Solar system back in the early part of this year. Discovered by Leonid Elenin a Russian astronimer in 12/2010

    • The Leonid meteor shower is always quite the bright display.

  18. Dictators are falling all around us and who is growing stronger? The NWO or what is called the WEU “The Ten” see their new document released in July. Western leg of the Roman empire is risen and the Ten toes or ten nations are in soldarity. These nations do make up NATO and with US air power and logistics they are a force to behold. China and Russia are watching carefully and seeing how the USA and its friends are soaking up all the oil rich nations makes them dangerous foes since esp China needs the oil to maintain its growth.

    • This is on the right track! I saw it plainly as the EEC is disbanding and reorganizing into a smaller entity! They will be eleven nations just like in the Bible…ten horns and ten crowns will support the Nwo into a small world government streamlined for conquest of the world using a central computer in Jerusalem that thinks for itself self aware demon possessed more likely!

      Amerika will be placed on the back burner as soon as she is no longer needed by the Big money boys in Jerusalem where the seat of power for this world government will be! Europe could turn on Amerika to get rid of her arrogance which is dangerous to them all! France has nukes and missiles! Could they turn? Just a thought!

      • Ten nations not eleven!


        [3] So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
        [7] And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
        [12] And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
        [16] And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

        • Europe’s new government coming soon supporting the Nwo in Jerusalem turning on America and hating her burning her with fire? … euro nukes sent against the US given time?

    • China and Japan have been bartering and selling water powered cars for some time now against the wishes of OPEC as revealed on building on Stanley Meyer and Mr. Herman from General Motors on board electrolysis hydrogen extractor.

  19. NATO and AL QAEDA fighting side by side…wow this is so bad! An unholy alliance to say the least!

    • hmm i was under the impression that al CIAda was our enemy?

      apparently were not at war with Eurasia and never were. thought crime!

      • cia with beards


  20. God is angry with the wicked every day!


    • “Covert forces, private contractors and U.S. intelligence assets were thrown into the fight in an undercover campaign operating separately from the NATO command structure,” AP reported yesterday.

      So far I haven’t seen this mentioned on Infowars …

  22. Washington is running out of foreign villians.

    Will Washington stage a domestic terror attack somewhere in the US before, during or after they attack Syria?

    I cannot help but think that the Clintonistas will have no moral issues in the slightest with staging a nuclear terror attack in the Russian Federation if Russia helps Syria repel a NATO invasion. Doing it by using the same mercenary fodder they deployed in Libya.

    The Clintonistas are capable of anything.

    Arrest Hillary Clinton and it all stops. Detain her and charge her with warcrimes the next time she sets foot in either Russia or China.

    Iraq stops. Afghanistan stops. Libya stops. FED and Bankster RICO crimes and money printing stops. All of it. Future staged terror plots stop. Obama resigns and flees Washington. Corrupt GOP and Democrat leaders get their turns to tremble in fear instead of poor people everywhere else.

    Arrest Hillary Clinton and millions of people are spared their genocidal scheme.

    • Clinton is a main player but what about Ephesians 6

      [10] Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
      [11] Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
      [12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
      [13] Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
      [14] Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
      [15] And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
      [16] Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
      [17] And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
      [18] Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

  23. Gadaffi, is hanging on by his teeth, the only stale-mate is from his military
    on the ground and apparently, very good fighters.

    There will be no secret weapon, if he had any advantage, he would have shown
    it by now, shooting down the NATO aircraft, would have been a good indicator,
    any heavy armor will be taken-out by NATO Apache or other ground support aircraft.
    And you can bet, they have spy craft in the air, watching what is going on.

    After it is all said and done, Libya will be in the NWO’s back pocket and on to Syria.

    Mankind is loosing ground day by day, it is still in the hands of the people of the world,
    what will they do, is anybodies guess. But, I do know, it will take a lot of blood either
    way it go’s, fight or lay down……But, fighting, will be the only hope for freedom.

    • It will not take a lot of blood.

      Just a pair of handcuffs on Hillary Clinton and a prison cell.


    • Godaffi was an officer in the armed services, before he was a leader of his Libyan people!

      • So in my view Godaffi put up a pretty good fight so far!

        The spot light was never on Godaffi’s men at all!

        • The Spot light was on Nato not the Us. for fear they would be related directly like with Iraq! Planning planning…

    • It’s in good hands … God’s hands! clic my name!

  24. Maryland just had a 5.8 earthquake along with DC virginia and New York South Carolina.

    Im about 30 minutes away from webster tarply.

    • I felt it in Baltimore.

      Very scary!

      • My first impression since i lived there growing up between Washington and Baltimore is that is a first! I knew there is a fault in North carolina but to have this reach the Washington area is a shock! This must be God’s way of saying to Washingtonians …

        Watch out! God is angry when you try to stick your finger into God’s eye by touching one of his children Godaffi his little Libyan people and his personal family!

        God hits back!!! Watch out! Here He comes! To tear you in pieces for forgetting Him and justifying murder and 20,000 SORTIES TO DESTROY LYBIA! Now your going to see the Sword of the Lord get you! Stand back see me fight saith the Lord!

        The warriors of Amerika are about to see the warriors of God defeat them in one hour and in one day shall your judgement come O Amerika for in your pride you do dishonor the Lord of Hosts and His people, a small people they are His He is able to defend them fight off marauders like you!

        • I am really sick of Amerika’s Nwo leaders in Washington and those who back them in Europe the Jewish Press that supports them to pull of an implosion of a whole oil nation!

          Wow! — They started by blowing up the Trade center buildings and now several whole countries by implosion prepared months in advance and look how quickly it all happens showing it just didn’t happen but was planned in the Pentagon or some think tank somewhere and carried out by brain contaminated US. Patriots with a cross around their necks! eric

    • New Madrid is gonna be rumblin quite a bit this year probably. The Mississippi Delta area, the Gulf of Mexico, and on up, is settting on a huge Salt Basin called the Louann Salt Basin. Get some sea water up in that area and making contact with that salt layer in the earth’s crust…and it begins to wash away. As it washes away ( erosion )..$hits gonna start happenin. Its gonna get worse.

    • As they continue to drill in this regions, the empty spaces are not being filed back up, so the weight above it is going to start collapsing in.


      It will start acting as one huge sink-hole that strattles the Madrid Fault Line

    • The old brick buildings and homes in Baltimore would collapse and kill thousands if a shaker like the one in Haiti ever hits.

  25. Gaddafi and sons still on the loose! I wonder how much a tectonic weapon is going for on the international arms market? Where are the tons of gold?


  27. man sf guys are supposed to be tough as nails. the cream of the crop.

    i guess you dont hear about the good ones. seems to me if they arent serving the banksters directly to wipe out other nations they are get swatted like flys 30 at a time to cover up stupid decision making on the part of the civilian leadership.

    man. so much for BUDs being tough. its the pencil neck ass sniffing banksters that are the REAL obstacle course in life. i guess nobody gets through that whether youve got the marlboro man moustache or not.

    man the fed is where the REAL men hang out. hmm.

    so much for me sleeping safe at night. running dope, selling guns to the mexicans, dissapearing hero cops – i aint sleeping safe at night and NOW i see i never have.

  28. so… let me get this straight

    under Tripoli, there are:

    * many compounds stuffed with supplies (and no doubt one has the 144 tonnes of gold) that cannot be touched by NATO air power.

    * tunnels as large as roads with 12th Tank Division stationed on them

    * secret passages to the surface

    … how is NATO and their pet Al Qaeda going to get them out of there? anyone going to volunteer to to go into these dark tunnels and get mown down with remote activated, weapon emplacements?

    Sounds impossible so they need a siege. NATO need to find all the escape tunnels and block them off. But it could go on for a while, and those still above ground could dig new ones.

    Think we may soon find out Gadaffi was a much smarter dictator than Saddam.

  29. well said

  30. So proud of the ‘British’ mercenaries for the Global Bankers as they destroy a sovereign nation. After all Britain no longer has sovereignty its just a puppet government (come banana republic) , a land mass to the globalist new world order banker corporate fascists.
