More great use of our tax payer money. Obama plans to give $400,000 to Gadhafi family run charities, divided between two foundations. $200,000 would goto the Gadhafi Development Foundation, which is run by Gadhafi's son, Saif, and the other $200,000 are to go to Wa Attassimou, an organization run by Muammar Gadhafi's daughter, Aisha.
Mark Kirk (one of the Cap and Trade 8 idiots) all of a sudden grows a pair and tells Obama to withdrawl this grant.

Unless you can find a better source confirming this.. I don't think this is much of a story.. or a thread.
If it turns out true... it's outrageous and crazy... but that's too big an if atm for me to give it much credence.
NEW YORK, Sept 24 (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department said it is rethinking a decision to give $2.5 million in aid to Libya, including to foundations run by the Libyan leader's sons, after lawmakers on Thursday asked it to cancel the plan.
In a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, two U.S. lawmakers said they were unwilling to give the aid because of the warm reception Tripoli recently gave a Libyan official convicted of involvement in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.
They also accused Libyan leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi of showing "flagrant disrespect" for the 270 victims of the bombing during his visit to New York this week to attend the U.N. General Assembly.
The Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at U.S. President George W. Bush was given a bravery award on Monday by a Libyan charity group chaired by leader Muammar Gaddafi's daughter.
The charity group Wa Attassimou also urged the Iraqi government to release television reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi after he was detained on Sunday for hurling footwear at Bush and calling the president a "dog" -- both severe insults in the Middle East.

First and foremost I wasn't aware it would be considered my responsibility to find a decent source for someone else's thread. Whether I questioned the quality of the OP's source or not. You seem to feel differently. That's your opinion and you're welcome to it. I on the other hand feel it was the OP's responsibility to have a better source to begin with. I guess we disagree. Oh my.
