Former US Congressman Walter Fauntroy claims he saw NATO troops behead Libyans as part of the siege to overthrow Gaddafi’s regime, a conflict Fauntroy attributes to the geopolitical agenda to re-colonize Africa.
Fauntroy was a Congressman representing District of Columbia for a period of 20 years between 1971 and 1991.
He embarked on a peace mission to Libya but soon went into hiding, with many fearing he had been killed. However, the former Congressman has re-emerged to claim he witnessed NATO soldiers commit war crimes.
According to a report by Afro.com, Fauntroy “Watched French and Danish troops storm small villages late at night beheading, maiming and killing rebels and loyalists to show them who was in control.”
“The rebels told Fauntroy they had been told by the European forces to stay inside. According to Fauntroy, the European forces would tell the rebels, “‘Look at what you did.’ In other words, the French and Danish were ordering the bombings and killings, and giving credit to the rebels.”
Shocked by what he witnessed, Fauntroy fled back to the United States, vowing, “The truth about all this will come out later.”
The Congressman added that NATO’s involvement in the civil war was primarily about preventing, “all efforts by African leaders to stop the recolonization of Africa.”
CNN confirmed that Fauntroy was amongst the journalists holed up at the Hotel Rixos before he was released on August 25. Fauntroy also claims that he personally met with Colonel Gaddafi during his time in the country.
