Classified Cables On Gaddafi's 38 Year Old "Voluptuous Blonde" Ukrainian Concubine/Nurse, And "Other Eccentricities"

Tyler Durden's picture

Following today's rambling hour + long filibuster on TV, suddenly many Americans, most of whom had never heard of Gaddafi, suddenly either have a definitive opinion of his persona, or are quite curious by it. Alas, since he appears to have little to no presence in the US yellow press, we are forced to resort to Wikileaks cable 09TRIPOLI771 "A GLIMPSE INTO LIBYAN LEADER QADHAFI’S ECCENTRICITIES" where in addition to all the things one would expect to find in such a cable, we learn of a peculiar love interest involving the Libyan dictator: namely a "voluptuous blonde" Ukraninian, who is supposedly his personal nurse, but more importantly, concubine. So for the gossip crowd here goes: "Qadhafi relies heavily on his long-time Ukrainian nurse, Galyna XXXXXXXXXXXX, who has been described as a “voluptuous blonde.” Of the rumored staff of four Ukrainian nurses that cater to the Leader’s health and well-being, XXXXXXXXXXXX emphasized to multiple Emboffs that Qadhafi cannot travel without XXXXXXXXXXXX, as she alone “knows his routine.” When XXXXXXXXXXXX’s late visa application resulted in her Security Advisory Opinion being received on the day Qadhafi’s party planned to travel to the U.S., the Libyan Government sent a private jet to ferry her from Libya to Portugal to meet up with the Leader during his rest-stop. Some embassy contacts have claimed that Qadhafi and the 38 year-old XXXXXXXXXXXX have a romantic relationship. While he did not comment on such rumors, a XXXXXXXXXXXX recently confirmed that the Ukrainian nurses “travel everywhere with the Leader.”

EO 12958 DECL: 9/29/2019
TAGS PREL, PGOV, LY, PINR
SUBJECT: A GLIMPSE INTO LIBYAN LEADER QADHAFI’S ECCENTRICITIES

CLASSIFIED BY: XXXXXXXXXXXX, Ambassador, U.S. Embassy Tripoli, Department of State.
REASON: 1.4 (b), (d)

1. (S/NF) Summary: Recent first-hand experiences with Libyan Leader Muammar al-Qadhafi XXXXXXXXXXXX primarily in preparation for his UNGA trip, provided rare insights into Qadhafi’s inner circle and personal proclivities. Qadhafi appears to rely heavily on XXXXXXXXXXXX and reportedly cannot travel with his senior Ukrainian nurse, Galyna XXXXXXXXXXXX. He also appears to have an intense dislike or fear of staying on upper floors, reportedly prefers not to fly over water, and seems to enjoy horse racing and flamenco dancing. His recent travel may also suggest a diminished dependence on his legendary female guard force, as only one woman bodyguard accompanied him to New York. End Summary.

QADHAFI’S PERSONALITY REFLECTED IN HIS PHOBIAS

2. (S/NF) Muammar al-Qadhafi has been described as both mercurial and eccentric, and our recent first-hand experiences with him and his office, primarily in preparation for his UNGA trip, demonstrated the truth of both characterizations. From the moment Qadhafi’s staff began to prepare for his travel to the United States, XXXXXXXXXXXX various proclivities and phobias began to reveal themselves in every logistical detail. When applying for Qadhafi’s visa, protocol staff asked whether it was necessary for the Leader to submit a portrait of himself that fit consular application regulations, noting that his photo was displayed throughout the city and that anyone of hundreds of billboards could be photographed and shrunken to fit the application’s criteria. When the rule was enforced, protocol staff reluctantly conceded to take a portrait of the Leader specifically for the visa application.

3. (S/NF)  XXXXXXXXXXXX  informed us that the Leader must stay on the first floor of any facility that was rented for him. (XXXXXXXXXXXX told XXXXXXXXXXXX that Qadhafi could not climb more than 35 steps.) XXXXXXXXXXXX cited this requirement as the primary reason that the Libyan residence in New Jersey was selected as the preferred accommodation site rather than the Libyan PermRep’s residence in New York City.XXXXXXXXXXXX also sought to find accommodations with room to pitch Qadhafi’s Bedouin tent, Qadhafi’s traditional site for receiving visitors and conducting meetings, as it offers him a non-verbal way of communicating that he is a man close to his cultural roots.

4. (S/NF) Qadhafi’s dislike of long flights and apparent fear of flying over water also caused logistical headaches  XXXXXXXXXXXX explained that the Libyan delegation would arrive from Portugal, as Qadhafi “cannot fly more than eight hours” and would need to overnight in Europe prior to continuing his journey to New York.  XXXXXXXXXXXX also revealed in the same conversation that Qadhafi does not like to fly over water. Presumably for similar reasons, Qadhafi’s staff also requested a stop in Newfoundland to break his travel from Venezuela to Libya on September 29. [Note: The Government of Canada recently confirmed that the Libyan delegation canceled plans to stop in Newfoundland. End Note.]

DEPENDENCIES: RELIANCE ON A SELECTIVE GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS

5. (S/NF) Qadhafi appears to be almost obsessively dependent on a small core of trusted personnel. XXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXX appears to play an equally important role in Qadhafi’s personal retinueXXXXXXXXXXXX We constantly hear that XXXXXXXXXXXX also plays a key role XXXXXXXXXXXX also seems to have been tasked with insuring that the Leader’s image is well-preserved through the full array of carefully-planned media events.

6. (S/NF) Finally, Qadhafi relies heavily on his long-time Ukrainian nurse, Galyna XXXXXXXXXXXX, who has been described as a “voluptuous blonde.” Of the rumored staff of four Ukrainian nurses that cater to the Leader’s health and well-being, XXXXXXXXXXXX emphasized to multiple Emboffs that Qadhafi cannot travel without XXXXXXXXXXXX, as she alone “knows his routine.” When XXXXXXXXXXXX’s late visa application resulted in her Security Advisory Opinion being received on the day Qadhafi’s party planned to travel to the U.S., the Libyan Government sent a private jet to ferry her from Libya to Portugal to meet up with the Leader during his rest-stop. Some embassy contacts have claimed that Qadhafi and the 38 year-old XXXXXXXXXXXX have a romantic relationship. While he did not comment on such rumors, a XXXXXXXXXXXX recently confirmed that the Ukrainian nurses “travel everywhere with the Leader.”
PREFERENCES - FROM DANCING TO HORSEMAN

7. (S/NF) In addition to the personality quirks revealed through Qadhafi’s travel to New York, the Qadhafi’s preferences for dancing and cultural performances were displayed over the last month. The three-day spectacle of his 40th anniversary in power included performances by dance troupes from Ukraine, Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, and Morocco, as well as musical performances by bands from Mexico, Russia, New Zealand, and a number of other nations. Qadhafi appeared particularly enthralled by Tuareg horse racing during two of the events, clapping and smiling throughout the races. The flamenco dancers that participated in his celebratory events appeared to spark a similar interest, as Qadhafi decided to stop in Seville (for a “personal trip” according to the Spanish Ambassador here) on his way back to Libya from Venezuela specifically to attend a flamenco dance performance. [Note: That stop has reportedly been scrapped for unknown reasons. End note.]

NO NEW YORK PHOTO OPS - QADHAFI LEAVES FEMALE GUARDS AT HOME

8. (S/NF) While Qadhafi’s reported female guard force has become legendary, it played no role in his travels to New York. Only one female guard was included among the approximately 350-person strong Libyan delegation to New York. This is the same female bodyguard who sticks close to Qadhafi in his domestic and international public appearances and may, in fact, play some sort of formal security role. Observers in Tripoli speculate that the female guard force is beginning to play a diminished role among the Leader’s personal security staff.

9. (S/NF) Comment: Qadhafi’s state visits and appearances at various conferences and summits, both at home and abroad, have revealed greater details about his personality and character. While it is tempting to dismiss his many eccentricities as signs of instability, Qadhafi is a complicated individual who has managed to stay in power for forty years through a skillful balancing of interests and realpolitik methods. Continued engagement with Qadhafi and his inner circle is important not only to learn the motives and interests that drive the world’s longest serving dictator, but also to help overcome the misperceptions that inevitably accumulated during Qadhafi’s decades of isolation. As XXXXXXXXXXXX told us, pointing to a larger-than-life portrait of Qadhafi, “When you have been isolated for so long, it is important to communicate.” End comment.

So, when the nursing staff heads back to the Ukraine we know it's really over.

Shouldn't that be 'nursing staff'. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink!

Anyone sailing in the pirate held waters off Somalia who doesn't have dual 50s mounted above decks is a dumb ass. Hell, I wouldn't sail there without a 30mm cannon. Though if I did have a 30mm cannon I'd probably sail right under their noses and dare them to try it, just try it punk.

One .50 would be enough.  I used to be able to demolish a steel truck with about 6 rounds.  The pirates use inflatable boats.

True, but the pirates are using any boats they can get.  I don't think they're really very sophisticated.  It's those rockets and the mindset of the shipping companies that are setting the tone.  Fight back, they'll quit.

The fear of flying over water is probably related to "Lockerbie Justice".

barkingbill's picture

i doubt very much that libya ever had anything to do with lockerbie. 

A Man without Qualities's picture

I agree.  If anyone is prepared to spend a couple of hours researching the Lockerbie case, and especially to look into the evidence presented at the trial, the shocking conclusion is there is very little evidence of Libyan involvement.  What is also overlooked is that Al Megrahi had been pushing for an appeal to his case and the Scottish authorities thought it pretty likely his conviction would be quashed.

Listen. Having your own cadre of buxom blonde bombshells is not a perversion, even if you play doctor with them. That's just good planning. 3 or 4 isn't too many either. Maybe 15 is getting to be too many but not if they get along and he's got the right drugs.

Seriously, what's the point of 1.5 million barrels a day if it don't come with bimbos.

Your "perversions and eccentricities" are our State Department's "personality and experience."

Gotta love this 2009 Reuters dispatch...

Once called the “mad dog of the Middle East” by President Ronald Reagan, Libya’s leader Muammar Gaddafi will meet U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice this week. 

Senior State Department official David Welch told reporters he had met Gaddafi — “a person of personality and experience” — several times. 

'We don’t refer to Colonel Gaddafi in those terms today,' said Welch when asked about Reagan’s derogatory reference. 

He anticipated Rice, America’s most senior diplomat, was 'quite capable' of meeting with Gaddafi and looking after U.S. interests. 

'She is anticipating this one with great interest,' he said of the upcoming Tripoli encounter. 

No word on whether the meeting — the first between Libya and a U.S. secretary of state since 1953 — will take place in one of Gaddafi’s tents."

If I wasn't laughing I'd be crying.

Oh, and get a load of the photo accompanying the story: http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/09/03/gaddafi-no-longer-mad-dog-of-...

Am I the only one out here wondering how Qadafi had the time to moonlight as Severus Snape?

By the by, holy shit, that dude is one ugly SOB. Must have been beaten with an ugly stick. Am surprised that nobody has mentioned it thus far.

are u  fukin serious? this crazed idiot is killing his peeps and threatens to blo up the oil wells and ur talkin about his girlfriend? don't u realize that wiki is just being used to release selected docs? unless of course they get a payoff ala bank of amerika.

this post is a disgrace.

dude,  this shows that Gaddafi is still active with his antics and more apt to fight and kill for the status quo.....he probably thinks he is immortal ....he might be if he's still pounding away at his age

do u have anything to contribute? do u have an opinion on anything that might be interesting? i bet u do. give it a try. really.

 

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

Assange is in the process of contributing a quarter of a million secret government documents and you're unhappy with that so I'm not sure what you might expect from me. Perhaps if I told you the tale of Bigfoot and how he destroyed the Twin Towers with laser beams from his magic UFO you could drift back into a fitful sleep.

Careless Whisper's picture

the documents are being released selectively. why not release all of them? the docs are low level secret, they are not "top secret" or anything like that. mostly inter-office memos.

and since you mentioned the towers, i guess you're putting forth the propoganda that if someone doubts the official story, they are obviously crazy and believe that bigfoot had a laser destroy the three skyscrapers, including the one that wasn't hit by a plane and was two blocks away from the twins.

i'm glad to see you express your opinions, that is, if you are sincere, and not a paid op.
