Obama ignorant of international politics: Gaddafi

June 12th, 2008 - 6:24 pm ICT by IANS  

Tripoli, June 12 (DPA) Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi slammed US Democratic presidential candidate Barak Obama for his support of Israel and described him as “ignorant of international politics,” media reports said Thursday. Remarks made by the “Kenyan-American Obama” about Jerusalem and his support for Israel reflect his ignorance of international politics and the logic of the Middle East conflict, Gaddafi was quoted as saying.

He made the remarks in an address to thousands of Libyans Wednesday on the 38th anniversary of the withdrawal of US troops from Libya.

The Libyan leader closed US bases in the country after he seized power in a September 1969 coup.

Obama may be driven by an “inferiority complex” stemming from the fact that he is black, Gaddafi said, adding that if Obama is elected he may behave “worse than whites.”
