Certainly it would be consistent with everything we do know about Barack Obama. In any case, it’s noteworthy in itself that the Obama Administration has given money to any entity connected with Gaddafi.
Carl in Jerusalem has the details:
There’s some dispute over its ultimate destination, but a Libyan ship left for this area from a Greek port on Saturday. (Israel Radio reported this morning that Israel’s foreign ministry says it’s headed for the Egyptian port of El Arish, but the ship’s captain says it’s heading for Gaza). The ship’s crew, which claims to be carrying ‘humanitarian aid,’ says it’s willing to have the ship boarded and inspected at sea, but they’re not willing to unload at the Israeli port of Ashdod, as Israel has demanded.
But here’s the key. The ship has been sent by the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation. And if you’ve been following the Illinois Senate race, you may already know that the Obama administration has contributed $400,000 to the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation and to Wa Attassimou, another ‘charity’ run by a Gadhaffi family member (Hat Tip: Murphywong). And just to top it all off, the Foundation is run by the same Gadhaffi son who brought the Pan Am bomber back to Tripoli.
