Like everyone else informed by the mainstream media, Big Island Gazette has precious little knowledge about the people the ongoing bombardments in Libya are intended to protect and assist. The local paper has it that they are civilians innocently seeking democratic freedom and human rights, while some on the web claim that they are a front for covert aggression by Western powers. We do not have a correspondent in Benghazi, so we cannot interview the Interim Transitional National Council, the political arm of the rebel forces lately recognised by France as the sole legitimate government of Libya. Thanks to the web’s lookup facilities, however, we can reveal a little about the rebel’s official website.
The Interim Transitional National Council’s site was registered by a Surrey (UK) outfit called Identity Protection Services. It is hosted on servers located in The Bunker, at a former RAF radar base in Kent. The Bunker boasts a 3.5m high perimeter fence, 3m thick walls, solid steel doors and guard dogs trained by the Ministry of Defence. It features a server area proof against nuclear attack. Security-cleared operators only are admitted singly by the guards. Seems those civilian protesters in Benghazi have military-strength cybersecurity.
