Maummar Gaddafi tied to Rev. Jeremiah Wright

You may be wondering why President Obama has been mum on the subject of Libya until tonight, even though for the last week Dictator Maummar Gaddafi has been massacring people on his streets.  One possible reason is that the White House does not know how to spell "Libya."  Another: President Obama's spiritual leader, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, has been tied to Gaddafi.

This is not to necessarily imply that President Obama didn't criticize Gaddafi because he favors his regime, but that the President had trepidation because he was aware of his pastor's ties to the iron-fisted ruler.

It all goes back to 1984, when Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and Rev. Wright decided to take a trip to Libya and see Gaddafi in Tripoli, the capital of Libya.  Was it to condemn Gaddafi at the height of his reign?  Was to to ask Gaddafi to work with the United States, as the two countries were in an extremely icy relationship?  No.

It was a social visit.
And even worse, at the time and since, the good reverend knew that this could have political consequences, especially during the Presidential campaign in 2008.  To quote Wright in 2008:
"When [Obama's] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli to visit [Gaddafi] with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell."
The ties between Farrakhan and Gaddafi are numerous, but surely President Obama has known about his reverend's indiscretion for years now.  Is this why he has kept quiet until today?  Maybe.

  2. As I recall, during the 2008 election, Gaddafl called on all Muslims to support Obama because he was one of them. Maybe Obama's reticence to name Gaddafi is because he does not want to bad mouth a political contributor.

  3. Sorry to disagree, but when I see Zerobama jump and yell for Mubarak to get the fugg out of Egypt within hours of protests starting (in which no one died), and yet he waits days to mention LIBYA and then barely expresses any horror at QADDAFI shooting people in the streets by the thousands, I conclude that Zerobama is in favor of Qaddafi, he supported his regime and hates to see him go, which is why he said sqat about Iran and Ahmadinejad - he backs him as well.

    Maybe all that time Barry Soetero spent in the madrassas in Indonesia warped his already deluded mind.

  4. The plot thickens. 2012 can't come around fast enough!
