Jibril Turns Against Foreign Powers That Aided Qaddafi Overthrow

Former Libyan opposition Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril traveled the world to gather foreign supporters to oust Muammar Qaddafi. Now, he views those allied nations with suspicion.

As Libya moves through a post-Qaddafi phase and prepares for democratic elections, the U.S.-educated former professor sees ally Qatar meddling in domestic politics by supporting a prominent Islamist. He also has a “hunch” Qaddafi was “killed based on a request by a certain foreign power” that wanted the dictator to be “silent forever.”
