Liberia/USA: Former Liberian President Charles Taylor, a CIA agent.

Former Liberian President Charles Taylor has worked for the CIA and the Pentagon from the early 88, according to reports Magazine "The Boston Globe" of Massachusetts.
The intelligence agency of the U.S. defense (DIA) has confirmed that some of his officers and some of their colleagues in the CIA had worked with Taylor in the early 80's.
The extent of this cooperation has not been revealed so as not to jeopardize by U.S. national security.
"They may have continued with him longer than they should, but maybe it brought something useful," said Douglas Farah, an expert on the period from 1997 to 2003, when Taylor led the Liberia.

Information on Mo'ammar Gaddafi was it as human sacrifices?

But the DIA declined to specify the magnitude and duration of the collaboration, citing a risk for US national security. The details of this collaboration is contained in dozens of intelligence reports - at least 48 separate documents - covering several decades.
         During his address to the Special Court for Sierra Leone in The Hague, he said that his escape from the maximum security prison in Boston in 1985, was organized by CIA agents. At the time, the CIA had described the information as "completely absurd".        
          President of Liberia from 1997 to 2003, Taylor was probably considered as a source of information on wider issues in Africa, whether the illegal arms trafficking to the activities of the Soviet Union on the continent, also said one of the intelligence officials.
In June 2003 Charles Taylor was indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity by the Special Court for Sierra Leone, for atrocities committed during the civil war in that country (1991-2001).

But who is really Charles Taylor?

His full name is Charles Ghankay Taylor McArhur Dahkpannah. The son of a teacher "Congo", a descendant of American slaves and a Gola mother, born January 28, 1948 at Arthinton, near Monrovia. He is sent to a private school outside Monrovia. He is 26 years old in 1974 when he arrived in Boston with a student visa.
Joined Chamberlayne College in Newton, Massachusetts, he worked several odd jobs to pay for his studies (guard, truck driver, mechanic, ...). After obtaining a degree in Economics at Bentley College Waltman (Massachusetts), he returned to Liberia at the request of President William Tolbert (1913-1980) and directed in 1980, the Agency General Services in Monrovia.
He became close and confidant of President William Richard Tolbert as overthrown and assassinated April 12, 1980 by Master Sergeant Samuel Kanyon Doe (1951-1990).

Tribulations between Africa and the United States.

In May 1983, he was accused by the regime of Samuel Doe of embezzling $ 900,000 from the City Bank in Monrovia. He took refuge in the United States. Upon request by the Liberian government, the Boston Police arrested him in May 1984.
         In September 1985, pending his extradition in a U.S. prison, he escaped from prison in Plymouth and took refuge in the Ivory Coast where he finds a residue of the party Quiwonkpa, the NPFL (National Liberation Front).
With his friend, the Burkinabe President, Blaise Compaore, he goes to Libya where he acquired military training for three years. On 24 December 1989, the National Patriotic Front (NPFL), reinforced with forty armed militants, he attacked on border post Buoto east of Ivory Coast triggered the civil war in Liberia.

One of the most horrific civil wars in Africa.

 His supporters are mainly recruited mainly among the Gios and Manos who attacked the Krahn and Mandingo. Despite the death of Samuel Doe September 9, 1990 (which he had made his goal) and intervention since August 7, 1990 troops of the Force West African Peace (E.CO.MOG) set up by countries ECOWAS to separate the warring factions, the Liberian civil war continued for seven years and made 200,000 people.
On October 24, 1990, an interim transition government headed by Amos Claudius Sawyer's lawyer (born 1945) is designated by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
In October 1990, he established a provisional government in Gbarnga in central Liberia and control Robertsfield Airport and the deepwater port of Buchanan.

A president of Republic blood hands.

On July 19, 1997, he was elected President of the Republic of Liberia. In 2001, while he faced a rebellion led by the Liberian United for Reconciliation and Democracy (LURD) and Movement for Democracy in Liberia (MO.DE.L.), he continues to support the sierra Leone rebels of Foday Saybana Sankoy (1937-2003), responsible for serious atrocities and supports the rebellion of the Ivorian Patriotic Movement of the Great West (MPIGO).

A special court for unspeakables atrocities.

On May 12, 2003, he was charged by the Special Court of the United Nations for Sierra Leone (SCSL) and an international arrest warrant was issued against him. Driven by the administration of George W. Bush, he resigned and transferred power to his vice president and former companion of bush, Moses Blah.
On August 11, 2003, he went into exile in Calabar in southern Nigeria where he continues to lead the civil war in Liberia. Arrested in Nigeria March 26, 2006, he is delivered to the International Tribunal for Sierra Leone (SCSL) in Freetown and convicted of war crimes, violation of human rights and crimes against humanity.
         On June 20, 2006, he was transferred to The Hague (Holland) to be tried by the same court. The trial ended in March 2011 but the verdict is pending. There does not fishy?
