Not surprisingly, Muammar Qaddafi likes Barack Obama. Monica Crowley reports at Political Mavens (h/t JWR) that, last Saturday, Qaddafi spoke of Obama very highly, even referring to him as a friend. This, perhaps, is a reward for Obama’s essentially non-existent response to the crisis in Libya and other ongoing crises in the Arab world, but it may also be a reflection of the long Obama-Qaddafi ties via the Reverends Wright and Farakhan that have recently been reported elsewhere.
I don’t know about Obama, but if someone like Qaddafi thought of me as a friend, I’d be worried. On the other hand, my agenda is not to weaken the United States and turn its people into dhimmis, but to strengthen it and keep the people free.
