TRIPOLI (Reuters) – Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, keen to improve ties with the West, has invited President Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to visit his country, a visiting U.S. senator said on Saturday.
U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Richard Lugar, ending a two-day trip to Libya, told a news conference he had held talks with Gaddafi on normalizing relations after decades of estrangement, following Tripoli’s decision to abandon weapons of mass destruction.
The on-going return to normal diplomatic relations with Libya is a major victory for the Bush administration. The fact that it came about can be directly attributed to Bush’s foreign policies in the middle east. There’s a long way to go yet, for sure, but its a positive and heartening story none-the-less.
But do you think its going to get any media attention? It might get some (its largely been ignored since Gaddafi announced his desire to return to normal diplomatic ties over a year ago), but not the sort of in-depth, in-your-face coverage moonbat Cindy Sheehan and her crowd of smelly hippie left-overs get with their “Bush is the puppet of the Jews” protests down in Crawford. Which is something that speaks volumes about the state of media bias today.
