In talks in London late Monday, the British foreign secretary, William Hague, met his French counterpart, Alain Juppé, who said last week that “one of the scenarios” to resolve the conflict in Libya “is that he stays in Libya on one condition, which I repeat: that he very clearly steps aside from Libyan political life.”
Previously, Britain had insisted that Colonel Qaddafi leave the country as part of a settlement. That could expose him to arrest under a warrant on war crimes charges issued by the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
But, adopting a newer formula used by the State Department in Washington, Mr. Hague said on Tuesday that “what happens to Qaddafi is ultimately a question for the Libyans.”
A MATTER FOR LIBYANS!?!? THIS GUY MURDERED HUNDREDS OF BRITS AND AMERICANS!?!?
THIS WILL NOT STAND!
NOW MATTER HOW WELL THE ECONOMY IS OR HOW MUCH MONEY HE RAISES, OBAMA WILL LOSE REELECTION IF QADDAFI IS STILL IN POWER.
