[General Hifter now represents the public face of the US supported forces in the western
edge of the present wars in North Africa.
. . . Hifter now 71 had been in the Libyan military from the time of the military coup
in 1969, but after 1987 he defected from the Gadaffi government. When the West had
imposed sanctions on Libya, Hifter was associated with opposition National Salvation
Front of Libya (NSFL). In 1988 he relocated to the United States and lived well in that
notorious suburb of Washington, DC, - Langley, Virginia. When the NATO bombings started
in March 2011, Hifter returned to Libya and joined in with the numerous
factions.--Horace G Campbell, "The United States, NATO and the Destruction of Libya,"

David Cameron . . .
