BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – An infamous terrorist was handed over to Egypt by the Benghazi-based Libyan National Army (LNA) on Wednesday, the Egyptian Ministry of Defense announced.

The wanted terrorist, Hisham El-Ashmawi, was filmed by Egyptian TV landing in Cairo on Wednesday after he was transferred by the Libyan National Army.

El-Ashmawi was captured by the Libyan National Army in the former Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) stronghold of Derna.

Egypt and the commander of the LNA, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, maintain close diplomatic and military ties. Haftar has received a considerable amount of support from Egypt over the years, including close military support.

  1. Smoke and mirrors. The truth beneath is that CIA agents are a part of the problem not the solution.

    • Haftar is not supported by USA, he’s supported by Egypt, France, Russia, the UAE and… Gaddafists.
      Had the Dubya admin listened to CIA instead of Khamenei, USA wouldn’t had invaded Iraq and ISIS founder Zarqawi would had been liquidated in 2002 before founding ISIS.
      BTW, CIA even recommands that USA should seriously reduce its gigantic (800-1000) number of overseas bases since these actually harm USA more than they serve US interests, moreover, they really cost very big…
      CIA is an intelligence agency, they don’t decide of the US foreign policy, they’re not the KGB/FSB/NKVD or whatever name they had since these decided what Russia became even under the Tsar : they first decided to oust the Tsar, then to scrap the Soviet Union and Putin is FSB. CIA is far from being as influential, they’re even banned from operating on US territory which is the FBI’s turf.
      CIA operatives are neither a problem nor a solution, they’re a tool for US foreign policy. If US foreign policy sux, CIA actions will sux. If US foreign policy does the right thing, so will CIA.
      Since USA always end doing the right thing but only after having tried everything that sux, considering the mistakes they cumulated in the last decades, there is a clear re-orientation since Trump is around which, despite some issues, seems to put USA into opting for the right things to do most of the time, even if I consider the Venezuelan thing over the last months ridiculous and so is it for the Mexican wall.

      Oh, BTW, maybe should you add Russia to your rants list or rename as “Russian Zionist Plague” : they didn’t waited US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel capital city to do so since they recognised this fact on April 6th, 2017…
