The Latest On Libya
February 24, 2011

Well, here's one no one really saw coming. Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is now blaming the protests in his country on, wait for it, al-Qaida! Gaddafi says those revolting are "loyal to Osama bin Laden." And he says al Qaida militants are "exploiting" teenagers, giving them "hallucinogenic pills in their coffee with milk, like Nescafe." Wow! That's pretty rich considering Gaddafi was branded a terrorist by the West, when bin Laden was just a boy.
