Qaddafi’s Son Speaks Out: ‘We Thought [Obama] Was a Good Man and Friend of the Arab World’


Saif Qaddafi, the son of Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi, spoke with ABC’s This Week earlier today. “Yesterday, we were surprised that the Americans and the British and the French attacked Libya,” he said. “[The coalition forces] attacked five cities, terrorized people.”

Qaddafi noted that it was a “big surprise” that President Obama decided to move forward with military action. “We thought [Obama] was a good man and friend of the Arab world,” he said.

“Step aside, why?” Qaddafi asked.  “Again, there is a big misunderstanding. The whole country is united against the armed militia and the terrorists. Simply, the Americans and the other Western countries, you are supporting the terrorists and the armed militia. That’s it.”
