Quicki- Report: Gadhafi's fugitive son caught


Feels like Mohamar had as many sons as there are second in command Al Quada.

TRIPOLI, Libya, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- One of the fugitive sons of deposed Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi was captured Saturday near the border with Niger, the Libyan military said.

Saif al-Islam Gadhafi was arrested in the southern border town of Obari in a desert oasis near the Niger border, Voice of America and CNN reported.

The International Criminal Court in The Hague has an outstanding warrant on Saif for alleged crimes against humanity under his late father's 42-year dictatorship.

Saif al-Islam is the second-oldest son born to Gadhafi's second wife. He was widely seen as the successor to his father, who was killed by transitional forces Oct. 20 as part of the pro-democracy conflict that began in February.

Lindsey Graham: GOP opposed Libya mission because Obama was president



No sooner had I finished posting GOPutzes do it again. They credit everyone except President Obama for Qaddafi’s death than I saw this:

Andrew Sullivan:

"To rid the world of Osama bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki and Moammar Qaddafi within six months: if Obama were a Republican, he'd be on Mount Rushmore by now."

And no sooner had I read that than reader majii linked us to this Lindsey Graham quote:

“I’m very disappointed in Congress... Congress took an irrational view of the War Powers Act. I guarantee you that a lot Republicans who wanted the War Power Act invoked would not have asked for it to be invoked if President Obama were not president. To me, national security should be as bipartisan as possible.”

And then he went on to say how he'd have done things differently.

God forbid any member of the GOP says anything positive about the president. That might appear supportive and make him look good or help his approval numbers, and that would never do.

Of course, none of this is surprising at all, considering what Mitch McConnell said:
