I remember that I came away from the visit realizing how much qaddafi lives inside his own head, in a kind of alternate reality.
We let qaddafi back into the world community; Bush even supported making him a member of the UN Security Council.
Whatever qaddafi says in his U.N. speech on Wednesday, it is bound to be offensive to some and entertaining to others.
qaddafi said a few completely appropriate words, as did I, and the press left.
But maybe this is a marriage made in heaven—Orly Weinerman is a soap opera star; qaddafi considers himself a painter.
The only bright lights seemed to be those illuminating the many, many billboards of qaddafi and his “inspirational” sayings.
"Now it is the turn of qaddafi [to die] after he made the people of Libya suffer for more than 40 years," he said.
These days, ISIS is wired; al Qaeda is tired; and Saddam Hussein and qaddafi expired.
Either way, qaddafi is highly unlikely to sleep in the tent.
One fine day, the world will work out a way of putting dictators like qaddafi behind bars for a very long time.
