In Manchester, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group knows its chemicals

Share This

At first the British Government announced that it knew who the Manchester Arena bomber was, but wanted official confirmation, and indeed, according to someone linked to Channel 4 the Greater Manchester Police said that they “won’t identify [the] Manchester suspect until formal ID [is] complete”. They also said that speculation about the bomber would be “potentially damaging to [the] investigation”. Never was the horse more bolted after the stable door had been shut, for CBS had already tweeted that it could confirm the identity of the Manchester Arena bomber. Yet more information flowed up from plentiful founts on the other side of the Atlantic, this time from NBC:

MANCHESTER, England — Salman Abedi, the 22-year-old British man believed to have killed 22 people in a suicide-bomb attack, had ties to al Qaeda and had received terrorist training abroad, a U.S. intelligence official told NBC News on Tuesday as the United Kingdom raised its terrorist threat level to the highest category.

The U.S. intelligence official, who has direct knowledge of the investigation, said Abedi, whose family is of Libyan descent, was identified by a bank card found in his pocket at the scene of the explosion after an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena. The identification was confirmed by facial recognition technology, the official said.

Abedi had traveled to Libya within the last 12 months, one of multiple countries he had visited, the official said. And while he had “clear ties to al Qaeda,” the official said, Abedi could have also had connections to other groups.

Given all the complaining going on, it would be a very good guess that all this forced the UK Government’s hand – there’s no point in speculating about the motive of the Americans – but remember, on the day after the attack, Theresa May said “the police and security services believe they know the identity of the perpetrator, but at this stage of their investigations, we cannot confirm his name”, and there was talk in the same breath in the corporate-media of a coroner’s report pending. However, it looks like Theresa May had to make do with a credit card found in Abedi’s pocket – the old stuff is the best, after all. And maybe the reason that the Government has been slow is the revelatory stuff about his links to the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group that the British corporate-media is now being forced to report. But before we get to that serious material, let’s have a look at some more ridiculousness that always tends to indicate state crime.

First up is the idea that the Times newspaper is the only organisation in the land supposedly outside of the security services or intelligence agencies (which of course, shows that it isn’t an organisation seperate from that realm) that can see CCTV footage of Salman Abedi delivering a suitcase bomb‡ to the target.

Abedi used a suitcase bomb packed with homemade explosives and nails for the attack – the same method used for Isis’ bombings at Brussels Airport and Molenbeek metro station last year.

CCTV footage seen by The Times showed the 22-year-old putting the suitcase down in the foyer between Manchester Arena and Victoria station shortly before it detonated amid Ariana Grande fans pouring out of the concert.


Of course, what this account doesn’t tell us is if Abedi stayed around for the bomb to go off – but why would he, when we’ve already been told by the authorities that he was killed in the explosion (and his banking details discovered)? But then again, we all know by now that just because government says something is so, it doesn’t automatically make it. It would be really handy to see Abedi deliver that bomb, because then we would know that it hadn’t already been secreted at the site well ahead of the incident. The author is thinking of the Manchester United bomb of 16th May 2016, which turned out to be a training exercise dummy, but somehow had been so expertly deployed, not found, and then “forgotten about” until it was discovered (if it had been a real bomb, this discovery would have happened with the explosion).

The next piece of nonsense to impart is the piece of evidence retrieved from Salman Abedi’s house after the police literally blew the door down to gain entry to it – derisible theatrics emanating from the maladjusted psychology of the desperate-to-justify-their-job, surely. The author doesn’t know how evidence is generally collected, but assumes that it is bagged or boxed, numbered etc. However, corporate-media cameras captured one moment when a member of police forensics was gathering one particular example of incriminating material†, and what a farce!

“Know your chemicals!” was the title of this booklet carried by this supposedly serious detective – and held in just the right way so as to make a nice photograph. The implication was obvious, and the author feels that he shouldn’t need to explain. During the Thomas Mair case, police briefed the press to bias public opinion against their supposedly innocent-until-proven-guilty suspect; now they send non-verbal signals.

Now, with the comic relief over, the author asks the reader to notice that the corporate-media is playing up supposed links between ISIS and Abedi in preference to a connection that appears to be much more substantial. Naturally, this link must be overshadowed because it is one that is very embarrassing for the British Government. The author is not going to write in detail about it, because there is an article by Tony Cartalucci at LandDestroyer that explains everything so beautifully, and what a waste of time and resources it would be to duplicate it (and not so well). Please read “UK Government Harbored Terrorists Linked to Manchester Blast for Decades” (link), from which the following is taken:

Thus, astoundingly, according to the Telegraph, a thriving community of listed terrorists exists knowingly in the midst of the British public, without any intervention by the UK government, security, or intelligence agencies – with members regularly travelling abroad and participating in armed conflict and terrorist activities before apparently returning home – not only without being incarcerated, but apparently also without even being closely monitored.

The listed terrorists are the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) – the al-Qaeda affiliate who the Royal Air Force, the Royal Navy, and the SAS and MI6 fought alongside at the start of the current decade to overthrow the legitimate government of Libya. The LIFG – a proscribed terrorist organisation – that the author was observing and writing about in real time during the Libyan fiasco so that he witnessed the close cooperation between these terrorists and a murderous NATO, and then their deployment into Syria as part of the NATO invasion-by-proxy of that country (for a sample of this writing, click on the Archive link in the menu). The nature of the relationship between the LIFG and the UK Government is perhaps best represented by the tender way that LIFG commander, Abdel Hakim Belhadj, has been treated. And so, when we discover its membership living unmolested amongst dark satanic mills, then we shouldn’t be surprised. But what it constitutes is an intelligence or security stand down – meaning the blame for the Manchester Arena attack lays firmly at the feet of the British Government.

The author has no satisfaction in seeing that the corporate-media, which at the time of the invasion of Libya basically collaborated in war crime, is now having to belatedly report a history that has very little resemblance to their current affairs of the time. Here is an example from the Daily Mail, as it finds it now has to discuss the terrorist career of Salman Abedi’s father in order to establish junior’s own credentials (a little emphasis added):

Abedi fled Tripoli in 1993 after Moammar Gadhafi’s security authorities issued an arrest warrant and eventually sought political asylum in Britain.

Now, he is the administrative manager of the Central Security force in Tripoli.

It is understood that Abedi was ‘known’ to the Security Services through his associations to those linked to terrorism in Manchester’s Libyan community.

These are said to have included 24 year-old Abdalraouf Abdallah, who was jailed for nine years after being convicted of preparing acts of terrorism and funding terrorism.

Abdallah, who is partially paralysed after being shot during the Libyan Revolution, is said to have helped men travel to Syria to fight.

Inquiries led officials at the time to believe Abedi was not of significance to that operation.

“Enquiries led officials at the time to believe Abedi was not of significance to that operation” says the last line – which it would, because for the British Establishment, there is never a case of “it’s a fair cop”. Neither will there ever be unless people, at long last, insist on it.


† For the record, the corporate-media clearly reported this booklet as having been property that had been residing in a house connected to the bomber:

Sinister book carried out of suspected Manchester bomber’s house

‡ Update 25/05/17: Seemingly forgetting that the Times has seen a suitcase bomb, the Telegraph now reports that the bomb might have been in a rucksack on the bomber’s back – see here.

The following is from the article:

The rucksack bomb that killed 22 people in Manchester was so complex that it could only have been made by an expert, leaked crime scene pictures suggest, as it emerged that an al-Qaeda bomb-maker lived on the same street as suicide attacker Salman Abedi.

It becomes clear that the British Government is upset at the US “leaks” that led to this information becoming public knowledge because they point to that professional terror cell mentioned in this article – and it undermines the narrative set out by British Intelligence in its corporate-media arm. The fact that members of the LIFG hve been allowed to live in the UK, and come and go as they please to war zones, is the big story here, and it is a scandal that would rock the government if the corporate press in the UK wasn’t all state-controlled.
