Gadafi's Assassination Squad
" DGSE Watching Over NTC "
" French security services foiled several assassination attempts directed against members of the National Transitional Council (NTC) of Libya. Equipped with efficient means of telephone tapping, the Directorate General for External Security( DGSE) had intercepted communication calls from Benghazi, seat of the NTC, directed to Tripolis since the beginning of April and before the fall of Gadafi. These interceptions were facilitated by a vanishing system of civil communications due to the destruction of networks. They allowed to identify armed persons who enjoyed direct contact with the NTC's top level. The French left it to the latter to regulate these sensitive affairs. "
