Gaddafi’s Favorite Ukrainian Nurse: I’m Outta Here

Weasel Zippers

(WSJ) — Embattled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi is set to be deserted by another close ally after his Ukrainian nurse said she was heading home.

Galyna Kolotnytska, described in a diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks as a “voluptuous blond” who “travel[s] everywhere” with Col. Gadhafi, called her family in Kiev on Friday to say she intends to return to Ukraine, her daughter told daily Segodnya.

“Mom got in touch yesterday. She said she was now in Tripoli,” Tetyana Kolotnytska said. “She spoke in a calm voice, asked us not to worry and said she’d soon be home.”

According to the cable from September 2009, contacts in Tripoli told U.S. diplomats that Col. Gadhafi “relies heavily” on Ms. Kolotnytska, then 38, as “she alone ‘knows his routine.’”

The cable also reported claims from unnamed sources that the eccentric Libyan leader and the nurse, part of a retinue of four Ukrainians, “have a romantic relationship.”

Ms. Kolotnytska’s daughter said her mother had been in Libya for nine years, originally employed in a hospital before starting work for Col. Gadhafi.

“Other Ukrainian women also work for him as nurses. Mom is one of them,” she said. “For some reason, he doesn’t trust Libyan women with this matter.”

  1. Gaddafi aligned himself with the West a few short years ago. Unfortuantely most in the West do not have the required perceptive capabilities to understand that this was a real opportunity now missed. The message is now very clear for other leaders contemplating a move of this nature.

  2. Absolutely wrong.

    Gaddafi NEVER ‘aligned himself with the West’- the west made overtures to him and offered him a lot of money to play nice. Gaddafi was never an ally, but an extortionist and an Islamist who exported jihad around the world. Gaddafi is a clone of the Dey’s of Tripolis 200 years ago who were defeated by Jefferson/Decatour (read the Barbary wars)

    Diana West: Making the World Safe for JIhad

    Back in August 2005, I wrote a column on what was a particularly great day for sharia, or Islamic law. It was a day that marked

    the end of the constitutional wrangling in Iraq and the beginning of the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza and parts of the West Bank. Both events — fought for, facilitated, even micromanaged by the U.S. of A. — should expand the domain of Islamic law, which codifies female inferiority and religious inequality. … By day’s end, Iraq, if it settles as expected on a draft constitution based in sharia, and Gaza, as a new sector of the already sharia-vested Palestinian Authority, will have joined the community of nations at odds with the Free World.

    This is what struck me at that time and ever since:

    We may be citizens of a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal, but our liberty has shrunk under measures we take to ward off Islamic terror attacks, and our dedication to equality looks tatty as we go about making the world safe for … sharia.

    “Making the world safe for sharia” is the perversion of the Wilsonian ideal that bedevils our time. It came about in air-conditioned tents and conference rooms where Americans worked with Iraqis and Afghans to write their new constitutions, both of which enshrine sharia as the highest law in those respective lands. I don’t think these Americans had (have) any idea of what this meant, not really. For these deeply irresponsible, see-no-Islam policy-makers, then, making the world safe for sharia was an unforseen and even still unseen by-product of nation-building in the Islamic world, as noted many times in this space. I wouldn’t be surprised if these same officials and consultants are still scratching their heads over why it is that the introduction of ballot boxes into these outposts of the umma didn’t automatically and instantly extend the Enlightenment for all — if they think about it at all.

    That was then.

    Something else is happening with the new war in Libya (can I be writing those words?). Just as time has marched on, so, too, have events. Barack Hussein Obama, without even perfunctory consultation with Congress, has committed US forces to military action against Libya at the behest of the UN and the Arab League (the latter has already changed its mind). But it is not sharia we are unwittingly making Libya safe for, as fatuous enablers of the democratic process in Islam; this time, we — US, British and French forces — are making the world safe for jihad.

    We are openly fighting on the side of Islamic jihadis: Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, off-brand jihadists, complete unknowns (and culturally inculcated Jew-haters).

  3. Fairly knowledge in Libya the Killer of WPC. Fletcher is Gaddafi henchman Matoug who has been also mixed up in killing of Libyan dissidents abroad. As a Libyan I am positive that we shall do the right thing and deliver both criminals to the proper authorities to face justice It is in the interest of all parties , the West, Libya and the victims’ families to watch closure on this matter at last.

  4. All media that propagates hate is neigtave and grossly myopic. All religions or believers of these religions should be respected. Their religions leaders should be respected instead of being deliberately insulted for whatever reasons. Those in all all religions who promote moderation and harmony should join together as forces of reason and toleration. They can be part of the solution. People such as KGS or what they continue to spread create terrorists like those Saudis who flew planes into buildings on 9/11 and killed all those on the ground irrespective of whether they were Christians, Muslims, Jews or of any other faith. They also create or radicalize weak minds into violence such as the recent Norway incident Anders Braevik or even the Unabomber, Timothy McVeigh etc. who professed to be Christians. Therefore, I believe KGS and what they represent are part of the problem.Lets us face it, despite people like KGS doing their best, it is impractical to expect that 14 million Jews will eradicate 2 billion Muslims or over 2 billions Christians will remove around 2 billion Muslims from the face of the earth. The need is not to spread more hate and create more terrorists. The need is to create harmony, tolerance and possibilities for co-existence. In this, the moderates are the solution and what KGS represents is part of the problem.It is irrelevant whether the terrorism is by a person, a group of people, a state or a nation. Terrorism is detestable. If a missile is fired from Gaza into Israel it is detestable and all should denounce it and do what is necessary to stop it. Similarly those who feel persecuted, and Jews would be the best people to know what is persecution due to the historical facts, should be at the forefront to deny persecution to all . The moderates can get together and try to shorten distances between faiths created by hardliners in each faith. That in my opinion is a desirable route to follow by all rather than insulting each others beliefs in their respective religions whether a person reach there by birth or by conversion. When insulted different people react differently. Hate grows. Horrific errors grow. Innocent people get killed. No one really wins. All loose.I know what I am saying sounds difficult in todays polarized world. We have to start somewhere so that our future generations may coexist peacefully. For this mature and sane minds need to prevail within their respective folds.
