Lawmakers Get Unexpected Thank You from Qaddafi

Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi wrote to members of Congress thanking them for criticizing President Obama last week over his involvement in the NATO-led military campaign in Libya, the New York Times reports.

"Qaddafi did not refer specifically to a resolution passed by the House that rebuked the administration for maintaining an American role in the campaign without the consent of Congress. But he expressed hope that the lawmakers would continue to press the administration."

One recipient was House Speaker John Boehner who quickly distanced himself from the Libyan leader: "If authentic, this incoherent letter only reinforces that Qaddafi must go. There's no disagreement about that."
