Libya Demands Obama Administration Apologize For “Ignorant” Remark About Gaddafi’s Call For Jihad Against Switzerland…
(Haaretz)-Â Libya on Wednesday called for the United States to apologize for a State Department official’s recent remarks about Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi’s call for jihad against Switzerland. (Its complicated, you see: its not as if he didn’t make these ‘remarks’, he just thinks the Great Satan should apologize… and knowing that America and the West of sorry ass motherf*#ers he might just get lucky, again….
See, its all happening: don’t blame me for telling you….
Obama never met an enemy of America he didn’t like…
“Libyan strongman Muammar al-Qaddafi, whose most recent call for a “jihad” against Switzerland has complicated his country’s drive to fully rejoin the international Â community…”
Gene Cretz, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, said Tuesday that the United States is hoping to “put some flesh” on the bones of American efforts to deepen ties between these two former foes.
He outlined a number of steps the two countries might take in the coming year, including closer military-to-military relations, U.S. training of Libyan forces, a new trade agreement, and a human rights dialogue.
The goal, he said, was to build a working relationship that can survive the “vicissitudes of politics” — a thinly veiled reference to the mercurial ways ofÂ Libyan strongman Muammar al-Qaddafi, whose most recent call for a “jihad” against Switzerland has complicated his country’s drive to fully rejoin the international community after years of isolation.
Cretz made the remarks at an invite-only luncheon organized by the Middle East Institute and underwritten by Bechtel and Coca-Cola. Libya’s man in Washington, Ali Aujali, also spoke at the event, and the two men had kind words for one another in front of the crowd of 36 people.
