CIA arranged call between Trump and Libya’s Haftar, secretly

The CIA secretly arranged a call between former US President Donald Trump and Libya’s Khalifa Haftar as the eastern commander launched an assault on the capital Tripoli in 2019, the Washington Post reported.

The CIA also arranged a call with the Libyan commander and former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who urged Haftar to be “very cautious” but notified him that the US would not intervene in the country, the Post reported.

The Libyan commander is currently facing lawsuits in the US by Libyan families who accuse Haftar of rights abuses and war crimes committed in territory under his control.
