Libya’s Qadhafi Says Israel Will Kill Obama

The state department keep telling us that Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi has moderated and is becoming a reasonable leader, possibly even a Western ally.
Yesterday, speaking before thousands of cheering supporters at a rally marking 38 years since American troops left Libya, Qaddafi declared his support for U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama but warned him of “grave threats.”
He said Israel will try to assassinate the presumptive Democratic standard bearer, as it did John F. Kennedy. Qaddafi said the late president was “killed by Israeli agents… when he promised to look into Israel’s nuclear program.”
Qaddafi then said that “because [Obama] is black with an inferiority complex, this will make him behave worse than the whites.” The answer, according to the Libyan madman, is for Obama “to be proud of himself as a black and feel that all Africa is behind him.”
