58. The command structure of the rebel military is LGIG. That's not controversial, it's a fact

Those leaders, while in Iraq, joined up with Al Qaeda.
More militants from Libya are turning up in Iraq, U.S. military researchers say.

U.S. Military Academy researchers studying documents note the continuing predominance of Saudis among foreign fighters.

But an "apparent surge" in Libyans could be tied to "the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group's (LIFG) increasingly cooperative relationship with al Qaeda," a West Point report says.

The Libyan group officially joined al Qaeda on November 3, according to the report, called "Al Qaeda's Foreign Fighters in Iraq: A First Look at the Sinjar Records." CNN Dec 7, 2007

Report from West Point described in article

They run the show militarily. Al Qaeda linked rebels are hardly the people that will serve the Libyan people.
They supposedly went through a rebel rehab the Gaddafi sponsored but, upon graduation, started the military action
against Gaddafi. That's who is in charge.

Of note, even with NATO help, they struggle to take Sirte and Bani Walid. Those in charge of the military are
al Qaeda sympathizer thugs.
