You can’t camp here, Gaddafi

Construction of the Libyan leader’s tent ordered to halt


Muammar Gaddafi, who is in New York to address a meeting of the UN general assembly, just can’t find a place to settle down. He tried to pitch his large Bedouin tent, which he often uses while traveling, in New Jersey and Central Park and was refused both times. Now, the town of Bedford, NY, located 45 miles north of Manhattan, has ordered construction of a tent there to halt because it’s being built in a no camping zone. “There is no such thing as diplomatic immunity when it comes to complying with local laws and ordinances,” Joel Sachs, an attorney for the town told the Guardian. “This is a private piece of property and they have to comply with the laws of this municipality.”

  1. How marvelously* wonderful; a traveling carnival! I hear the Strong Man is to die for.

    *may not be marvelous to those living in Libya or Bedford, NY

  2. IFirst Harper has the cojones to actually have us stand up for something and walk out of the UN when Iran's President speaks .. and now this .. what a truly remarkable day .. I may have to revise my opinion and resect meter for people usually the news is about letting this particular type of evil spread due to some sort espediency or bottom line. Wow who would have thought!

  3. Let him pitch his tent and than some one set fire to it.

  4. they don't call it united nothings for nothing… all sorts of the countries can get away with human rights abuses and they just see it as multiculturalism
