Colonel Muammar Qaddafi symbolizes manythings to many different people around theworld. Love or hate the Libyan leader, under hisrule Libya transformed from one of the poorestcountries on the face of the planet into thecountry with the highest standard of living inAfrica. In the words of Professor Henri Habibi:When Libya was granted its independence bythe United Nations on December 24, 1951, itwas described as one of the poorest and mostbackward nations of the world. The populationat the time was not more than 1.5 million, wasover 90% illiterate, and had no politicalexperience or knowhow. There were nouniversities, and only a limited number of highschools which had been established seven yearsbefore independence. [1]Qaddafi had many grand plans. He wanted tocreate a South Atlantic Treaty Organization to protect Africa and Latin America. He advocatedfor a gold dinar standard as the currency of Muslim countries. Many of his plans were also of apan-African nature. This included the formation of a United States of Africa.
Qaddafi’s Pan-African Projects
 Colonel Qaddafi started the Great Man-Made River, which consisted in a massive project totransform the Sahara Desert and reverse the desertification of Africa. The Great Man-MadeRiver with its irrigation plans was also intended to support the agricultural sector in other parts oAfrica. This project was a military target of NATO bombings. Without just cause, NATO’sbombing campaign was intent upon destroying the Great Man-Made River.Qaddafi also envisioned independent pan-African financial institutions. The Libyan InvestmentAuthority and the Libyan Foreign Bank were important players in setting up these institutions.Qaddafi, through the Libyan Foreign Bank and the Libyan Investment Authority, wasinstrumental in setting up Africa’s first satellite network, the Regional African SatelliteCommunication Organization (RASCOM), to reduce African dependence on external powers.[2]His crowning achievement would have been the creation of the United States of Africa. Thesupranational entity would have been created through the African Investment Bank, the AfricanMonetary Fund, and finally the African Central Bank. These institutions were all viewed withanimosity by the European Union, United States, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and WorldBank.

Qaddafi had a wealth redistribution project inside Libya. U.S. Congressional sources in a reportto the U.S. Congress even acknowledge this. On February 18, 2011 one report states:In March 2008, [Colonel Qaddafi] announced his intention to dissolve most governmentadministrative bodies and institute a Wealth Distribution Program whereby state oil revenueswould be distributed to citizens on a monthly basis for them to administer personally, incooperation, and via local committees. Citing popular criticism of government performance in along, wide ranging speech, [he] repeatedly stated that the traditional state would soon be “dead”in Libya and that direct rule by citizens would be accomplished through the distribution of oilrevenues. [The military], foreign affairs, security, and oil production arrangements reportedlywould remain national government responsibilities, while other bodies would be phased out. Inearly 2009, Libya’s Basic People’s Congresses considered variations of the proposals, and theGeneral People’s Congress voted to delay implementation. [3]Qaddafi wanted all the people of Libya to have direct access to the nation’s wealth. He was alsoaware of the deep rooted corruption that plagued the ranks of the Libyan government. This wasone of the reasons why he wanted to apply a model of political anarchy in Libya throughprogressive steps. He was talking about both these project for a few years.On the other hand, the Wealth Redistribution Project, along with the establishment of ananarchist political system, was viewed as a very serious threat by the U.S., the E.U., and a groupof corrupt Libyan officials. If successful, the reforms could have created political unrest amongstmany domestic populations around the world. Internally, many Libyan officials were working todelay the project. This included reaching out to external powers to intervene in Libya to stopQaddafi and his projects.
Why Mahmoud Jibril Joined the Transitional Council
 Amongst the Libyan officials that were heavily opposed to this project and viewed it with horrorwas Mahmoud Jibril. Jibril was put into place by Saif Al-Islam Qaddafi. Because of stronginfluence and advice from the U.S. and the E.U., Saif Al-Islam selected Jibril to transform theLibyan economy and impose a wave of neo-liberal economic reforms that would open theLibyan market.Jibril became the head of two bodies in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, the National PlanningCouncil of Libya and National Economic Development Board of Libya. While the NationalEconomic Development Board was a regular ministry, the National Planning Council wouldactually put Jibril in a government position above that of the Office of the General-Secretary of the People’s Committee of Libya (which is the equivalent of the post of a prime minister). Jibrilactually became one of the forces that opened the doors of privatization and poverty in Libya.About six months before the conflict erupted in Libya, Mahmoud Jibiril actually met withBernard-Henri Lévy in Australia to discuss forming the Transitional Council and deposingColonel Qaddafi. [4] He described Qaddafi’s Wealth Redistribution Project as “crazy” inminutes and documents from the National Economic Development Board of the Libyan ArabJamahiriya. [5] Jibril strongly believed that the Libyan masses were not fit to govern themselvesand that an elite should always control the fate and wealth of any nation. What Jibril wanted todo is downsize the Libyan government and layoff a large segment of the public sector, but inexchange increase government regulations in Libya. He would also always cite Singapore as theperfect example of a neo-liberal state. While in Singapore, which he regularly visited, it is likelythat he also meet with Bernard-Henri Lévy.

When the problems erupted in Benghazi, Mahmoud Jibril immediately went to Cairo, Egypt. Hetold his colleagues that he would be back in Tripoli soon, but he had no intention of returning. Inreality, he went to Cairo to meet the leaders of the Syrian National Council and Lévy. They wereall waiting for him inside Cairo to coordinate the events in Libya and Syria. This is one of thereasons that the Transitional Council has recognized the Syrian National Council as thelegitimate government of Syria.
