Spitting in the face of the American taxpayers: Obama gives $400,000 to Gaddafi’s “charity”

Sure, he's nuttier than a friggin' fruitcake, but now he's also the recipient of 400,000 of your tax dollars

If you made up this story and stuck it in a movie, no one would believe it. It’s incomprehensible. Just plain incomprehensible.

CBS2 Chicago reports:

The Obama Administration plans to give $400,000 in funding to a Libyan charity run by the Gadhafi family, and U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) wants the grant withdrawn.

The money would be divided between two foundations run by the family of Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi. A $200,000 share is set to go to the Gadhafi Development Foundation, which is run by Gadhafi’s son, Saif, and another $200,000 are to go to Wa Attassimou, an organization run by Muammar Gadhafi’s daughter, Aisha.

Kirk says the grants should be withdrawn in light of the recent return to Libya of Pan Am Flight 103 bomber Abdel Baset Megrahi. The terminally ill prisoner was released from in Scotland on compassionate grounds, and got a hero’s welcome from Muammar Gadhafi and other Libyans upon his return.

Saif Gadhafi was involved in negotiating for Megrahi’s release, and accompanied him back to Libya.

Give money to Mother Teresa. Give money to the SPCA. Give money to that damn Jerry Lewis Telethon. But who in their right mind would give money to a “charity” run by an insane terrorist dictator who runs a country that sits atop a giant pool of oil?

Barack Obama. That’s who.

Of course Obama would borrow money from China to give to a terrorist that lives in one of the richest countries. Tax payers will pay this back. I believe it is Obama’s way of apologizing for saying he did not know that the Pan Am bomber was being released from prison. This may not be that much money to the govt, but to the tax payers it is a lot of money. Why not give it to an American charity. Oh, I forgot, Obama does not like America. He just has to keep apologizing for this darn country.

It is difficult for me to write this without the use of profanity! That is how upsetting it is to me and should be to every American that Obama would gice a cent to anytning that has to do with the demented dictator, Gadaffi.

Among other things, this man is a terrorist. Actually, I think both of them are!

Wouldn’t this be classified under the patriot act of contributing to terrorism?
Sounds like treason to me.

JIm, I’m totally with you. I couldn’t comment on this when I read it earlier for much the same reason. It’s awful when your own president (not that I voted for him, but there you have it) does something that literally makes you see red.

barny, do you think it might be time to pull the same thing that everyone was doing to Bush for almost his entire presidency and start displaying “Impeach Obama” signs? Lol. I think it’s the least we could do.

Does this administration have any idea how long average, American citizens have to work to pay their taxes and now the government is throwing away their money on this, it’s outrageous! Please tell me it’s not going to happen.

I know this is shocking, but CBS Chicago deleted the link to that article.
So here is another:
