Fascinating interview with the Libyan leader’s 36-year-old daughter, Aisha, in Wednesday’s New York Times. This is one special lady: not only is Muammar Gaddafi the grandfather of her three kids, but she also served as a member of Saddam Hussein’s legal team.
“The opposition in Iraq told the West that when you come to Iraq they will greet you with roses,” she said. “Almost 10 years later they are receiving the Americans with bullets, and, believe me, the situation in Libya will be much worse.” She taunted both President Obama and Mrs. Clinton, saying that Mr. Obama had “achieved nothing so far” and laughing as she posed a question to Mrs. Clinton: “Why didn’t you leave the White House when you found out about the cheating of your husband?”
Real diplomat, that one.
