Belmokhtar was recruited and trained by the CIA in Afghanistan. He was an “Afghan Arab”
recruit from North Africa and fought with the CIA and Pakistan ISI (Inter Services Intelligence)
Mujahideen that would later splinter into al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Following the deadly Afghan
civil war that claimed nearly a half million lives, Belmokhtar returned to Algeria in 1993 and
joined the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC).

The GSPC was purportedly founded by Hassan Hattab, a former Groupe Islamique Armé (GIA)
commander. Mohammed Samraoui, the Algerian army’s deputy chief counterintelligence
specialist, claims GSPC was established by the Algerian army in an attempt to weaken and
destroy the moderate Islamic Salvation Front, an Islamist political party poised to take power in
Algeria’s elections. GSPC members were recruited by Algerian intelligence upon returning from
the jihad in Afghanistan.

In 2007, the GSPC changed its name to the Al-Qaeda Organization in the Islamic Maghreb
(AQIM) and aligned itself with the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG). In November 2007, al-
Qaeda second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri released an audio announcing that the LIFG had
joined al-Qaeda.

“Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb from the outset in 2007 had established a close relationship to
the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, whose leaders had also been trained and recruited in
Afghanistan by the CIA,” writes Michel Chossudovsky. “The LIFG is supported covertly by the
CIA and Britain’s MI6.”

According to an MI6 document, British intelligence knew of a LIFG plot to assassinate Gaddafi
in 1995 involving “Libya veterans who served in Afghanistan.” The report was given credibility
by the fact British authorities allowed LIFG members living in the U.K. to engage in activities
supporting the organization despite its official declaration as a terrorist group.

In addition to support from U.S. and British intelligence, AQIM and other Salafist groups in
Africa received support from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The intelligence organization DGSE to the
French Defense Ministry mentioned in a report Qatar’s support for terrorism in northern Mali.

Algeria’s prime minister, Abdelmalek Sellal, said the In Amenas Gas plant attack in the Sahara
“included two Canadians and a team of explosives experts who had memorized the layout of the
sprawling complex and were ready to blow the place sky-high,” the CBC reported.

The highly sensationalized attack in Algeria is now being exploited by the establishment media
as a propaganda tool in the global war on terror and to once again highlight the scourge of al-
Qaeda and associated Salafist groups created by the CIA, Pakistan’s ISI, MI6 and funded by
Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

The globalists fully intend to expand their operations into resource rich Africa. AFRICOM, the
United States African Command, and the French – with the support of Cameron and the British –
are moving into Africa in a big way with the Damocles sword of al-Qaeda and its panoply of
associated Salafist groups providing the necessary pretext.
