Libyan rebel “gains” smokescreen for talks in Tunisia to end war


The rush of military advances claimed by the Libyan rebels and the rumors of the near collapse of Muammar Qaddafi’s army and his imminent flight are designed, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report, as a smokescreen for three current occurrences:

1. Libyan Government ministers and Benghazi-based Transitional National Council, TNC, representatives, have been meeting in semi-secrecy on the Tunisian island of Djerba from Saturday, Aug. 15 – although both sides swore never to sit down and talk.

Significant progress brought the dialogue’s sponsor, the UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon’s Special Envoy, Jordanian Foreign Minister Abdul Ila al-Khatib, to the island on Monday, Aug. 15.
