Darryl W. Perry: Unanswered Questions in Libya

Bloomberg reports, the Libyan Transitional National Council “created a new national oil company to replace the corporation controlled by leader Muammar Qaddafi whose assets were frozen by the United Nations Security Council… and designated the Central Bank of Benghazi as a monetary authority competent in monetary policies in Libya and the appointment of a governor to the Central Bank of Libya, with a temporary headquarters in Benghazi.”

The Economic Collapse Blog opined, “apparently someone felt that it was very important to get pesky matters such as control of the banks and control of the money supply out of the way even before a new government is formed… Since the old Central Bank of Libya was state owned, it was essentially under the control of Moammar Gadhafi.
But now that Libya is going to be ‘free’ the new Central Bank of Libya will be run by Libyans and solely for the benefit of Libyans, right?
Of course it is probably safe to assume that will be the case with the new national oil company as well, isn’t it?”

Additionally, The Economic Collapse Blog writes, “When Barack Obama looked straight into the camera and told the American people that the war in Libya is in the ‘strategic interest’ of the United States, surely he was not referring to oil.
After all, war for oil was a ‘Bush thing’, right? The Democrats voted for Obama to end wars like this, right?”

Maybe controlling the economy of Libya holds some “strategic interest” to the government of the United States. It is probably a coincidence that the Federal Reserve gave the “old” central bank up to $35 billion in very low interest loans. It is also most likely a coincidence that the “old” central bank of Libya was exempted from UN sanctions. And it is most likely a coincidence that the owners of the “new” central bank are not disclosed. No one knows for sure if anyone in control of the “new” central bank was also in a position of power with the “old” central bank. And no one knows for sure whether or not any of the loans made to the “old” central bank have been transfered to the “new” bank.

Senator Bernie Sanders sent a letter to Tim Geithner and Ben Bernanke asking for answers. He writes, “it is incomprehensible to me that while creditworthy small businesses in Vermont and throughout the country could not receive affordable loans, the Federal Reserve was providing tens of billions of dollars in credit to a bank that is substantially owned by the Central Bank of Libya.”
Among the questions Sanders has asked:
Why would the US government exempt the Arab Banking Corporation from economic sanctions when it is primarily owned by the Central Bank of Libya?
How many US Treasury Securities does the Arab Banking Corporation currently own?
How much money has the Federal Reserve lent to the Arab Banking Corporation since December 1, 2010?
Sanders also asks one final “disturbing question”: Why would the U.S. government allow a bank that is primarily owned by the Central Bank of Libya… to operate two branches within our own borders?

I agree with Mr. Sanders, “the American people deserve answers to these questions.”

  1. Mr.Perry you must be careful when discussing “odd” banking practices. Especially in the Middle East! You could be labeled a conspiracy nut, kook, wing-nut, even Tin Foil Hat material.

    Any light hurts the mushies eyes. When you live your entire life in the dark having Bull#&^% thrown in your face daily, you do NOT want any change to your controlled wee existence!

    “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge — even to ourselves — that we’ve been so credulous. (So the old bamboozles tend to persist as the new bamboozles rise.)” – Carl Sagan

    It really is amazing if you think about it. You Mr. Perry post a very relevant reveling article about truth behind current foreign events yet you get almost no responses. A Root appearance as one of three pundits about a “show” trial (where everyone will be found guilty-hence a useless 5 minute time filler on a small cable outlet) gets well over 100 responses! Very enlightening of this “intellectual” gathering on IPR !
