Now Abdelhakim Belhadj was military governor of Tripoli (thanks to NATO), but he wants more, or rather the Qatar wants him as president!?
Since this week, Belhadj has replaced his military uniform for a suit, he has ambitions to rule Libya!?
He is a member of Al-Qaeda. He fought the Russians in Afghanistan and he fought in Iraq alongside Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the head of Al Qaeda in Baghdad. In 2003, he was arrested in Malaysia by the CIA and delivered to Libya. He remains imprisoned until 2009 then he is released by Saif al-Islam Gaddafi (one of his most big mistake).
In May 2011, he joined officialy the insurrection against Gaddafi.
