It is essential to get Jens Stoltenberg to the Parliament to get the facts on the table about what the government knew when they went to the bombekrig against Libya. It was Stoltenberg who was the forcing agent for the war, " says Red leader Bjørnar Moxnes of the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet.
4. February to the foreign and forsvarskomiteen on the Parliament to hold hearing on Norway's participation in Libya war in the spring and summer of 2011. Where should the current secretary general of Nato, Jens Stoltenberg, that meeting, according to Red-leader
Norway's participation in the Nato-led operation had the starting point of the UN resolution 1973, which advocated for the immediate cease-fire and a no-fly zone over the country. The resolution gave support to use "all necessary force" to protect the civilian population in Libya.
the Nato operation ended with Gadhafi was overthrown. The situation in the country is still characterized by chaos and lawlessness.Scrutiny frikjente the Government
In the fall was the investigation of the Norwegian participation in the Nato operation was presented.
the Investigation was led by former foreign minister Jan Petersen (H), and concluded that the present coalition government with Jens Stoltenberg in the lead, on the whole, followed the laws and rules when Norway decided to put the bomber in the conflict.
the Decision of the Norwegian krigsdeltakelse was never submitted to Parliament, but was taken by government after contact with partilederne on SMS. 15 Norwegian combat aircraft participated in the operation and according to the Defense released the 588 bombs over Libya.
It is especially three answers Moxnes requires Stoltenberg reply to:Stoltenberg said in Parliament 29. march 2011 that "Norway is in the international rights sense, not in the war". The ministry of defence concluded a few days earlier that the Uk was actually at war in LibyaStoltenberg-the government said 9. may to Parliament that the intervention In Libya "does not include regime change inflicted from the outside". Moxnes thinks it quickly was obvious that the truth was the exact opposite.Stoltenberg must answer if he knew that bakkeoffensiven against Tripoli, which the Uk and Nato supported from the air, was headed by a known al-Qaeda commander.Norway was in war?
Moxnes believes that it is very serious that there was uncertainty about Norway in the international rights sense, was in the war or not.
– When you go to war, which is the most serious a country can do, one must know whether one is in war or not. We can't have a prime minister with a private practice understanding of international law, that is inconsistent with its own fagetat. It is the happy amatørskap and unsustainable, " says Moxnes.
If we are at war, the Norwegian soldiers legitimate targets. But not only that, Libya would then have had the law to carry out the attack against the Norwegian military targets – even on Norwegian soil.
When it comes to the question of regime change, believe Moxnes that either the Parliament or prime minister Stoltenberg was misinformed.
It soon became clear that this war was about regimeskifte, which broke with the UN mandate. If Stoltenberg knew this, so misled he the Parliament. If he didn't know it, then it is Nato that has led Norway behind the light. This must Stoltenberg answer on, turn Moxnes fixed.
– How severe are the consequences of warfare?
Libya was a brutal dictatorship before the war, now it is a lawless country. al-Qaeda and IS operating freely in large areas. The so-called government has introduced sharia and has been carried out ethnic cleaning and massacres against-skinned libyans. Millions are driven on the run to neighboring countries and Europe, the answer Moxnes.
This war had disastrous consequences including the rise of islamist terror. It is not so strange, as Norway and Nato helped these extremists until victory, adding Moxnes.LIBYA: the ministry of Defence and the ministry of Foreign affairs invited to the press conference in connection with the publication and presentation of the freedom of Libya-the committee's report. - The Norwegian authorities had little understanding of the situation, said committee chairman Jan Petersen.

Jens Stoltenberg is made aware of the Rødts criticism and what questions they want answers to, via its communications advisor Anne Marte Vestbakke.
It is Vestbakke responding on behalf of prime minister Stoltenberg:
"Jens Stoltenberg, the prime minister of the Parliament of Libya operation in 2011. The operation had a clear UN mandate in resolution 1970 and 1973 of the Security council, and Norway's participation was supported by all the political parties in Parliament.
Stoltenberg met the regjeringsnedsatte the committee that evaluated the Libya operation, and shared all relevant information with the committee. The committee's opinion is that the processes that led to the decision of the Norwegian participation in Libya operation, fulfilled the necessary constitutional requirements," writes Vestbakke in an e-mail to Dagbladet.
Moxnes believes, however, Petersen-the report does not answer several key questions, including whether the government knew that islamic terrorist groups were in alliance with Nato. Red-the leader draws up the british report, which was unsparing in its criticism.
Petersen-selection was led by one of the most Nato-loyal politicians we have had, which would have the Uk in the war in Iraq. The other members are also closely linked to the Defense ministry or Nato.
Petersen-selection is probably as far away from an independent investigation one can get. The result was also a money laundering by the government on all points, " says Moxnes.SLAVEAUKSJON: CNN has documented how the people sold as slaves at auction in today's Libya. Video: CNNVis more Show more
