Reports have emerged in European media alleging that efforts by French intelligence to destabilize or topple the Libyan government of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi may have played a role in last month’s protests in Benghazi, which ultimately led to war in Libya.

The National Council, a Libyan rebel group based in Benghazi and led by ex-Gaddafi regime officials, appealed to the Western powers for military support. The US, Britain, and the French government of President Nicolas Sarkozy then launched a war against Libya on March 19.

Allegations of French intelligence involvement center on a March 23 report by journalist Franco Bechis in the right-wing Italian daily Libero, headlined “‘Sarko’ manipulated the Libyan revolt.” He highlights the strange case of Nuri Mesmari—Gaddafi’s former chief of protocol, who fled to Paris in October—and claims that Mesmari put French officials in contact with military officers and activists in Benghazi plotting against Gaddafi.

Italy is currently in number one position, with China second and France a distant sixth.”
