Maktab Maaloumat al-Kaed
Guide's Intelligence Bureau
Muammar al-Gadhafi holds the title of Guide of the Revolution. The Guide's Intelligence Bureau is a major coordinating body. It is located in the Bab al-Aziza barracks in the center of Tripoli.
Qadhafi began a reorganization of Libya's security and intelligence services in early August 1993. The diversity of different services was maintained, but the Guide's Intelligence Bureau (Maktab Maaloumat al-Kaed) wan reinforced and becomes a major coordinating body. Located in the Bab al-Aziza barracks in the center of Tripoli, as of late 1993 the Bureau was headed by Ahmed Ramadan al-Asabia, a Kaddadifa member and intelligence specialist very close to Colonel Kadhafi. One of his principal advisors, Mohamed Amsied al-Majub al-Kaddafi, was general coordinator of the Revolutionary Committees, replacing Abdessalam Jallud who had withdrawn to his native town of Sebha. Al-Asabia exercised direct control over the four security and intelligence agencies.
