Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Bill Burns spoke twice over February 24-25 with Libyan Foreign Minister Musa Kusa and Assistant Secretary Jeffrey Feltman has spoken with Kusa several times, the State Department said.
The thing to watch is what Foreign Minister Musa Kusa does,” this person said. “If he turns against Gadhafi, it is probably over. If he stays with him, most likely there will continue to be massive bloodshed. The odds of Gadhafi surviving internally remain high as long as he has Kusa‘s support.”
Kusa said February 25 that Libya is resilient and able to deal with such terrorist conspiracies, saying “what is sad is that we have seen those who said that they were our friends [condemn us], and today we know who is with us and who is not.”
The United States suspended operations February 25 at its embassy in Libya after U.S. diplomatic personnel were airlifted out of the country but the move does not amount to a break in diplomatic relations with Libya, and that contact continues with Libyan government officials, including Foreign Minister Musa Kusa, with the hope of influencing Libyan behavior. Kusa has been a proponent of strengthening Libyan-U.S. relations and has acted as a CIA informant in America’s war on terrorism.
After 9/11, Kusa offered the United States intelligence on Al Qaeda’s efforts to obtain a nuclear weapon. He also helped broker a 2003 deal in which Gadhafi eradicated Libya’s weapons of mass destruction in exchange for the dropping of trade sanctions.
