Pan Am Widow condemns Qaddaffi at the UN
As Moammar Khadafy was ranting in the U.N., a Pan Am widow was protesting his appearance in deeds and words. Writing in the NY Post , Helen Engelhardt Hawkins expressed her still fresh pain while providing this understanding of U.N. hypocrisy and world politics.
This megalomaniac is addressing the very body that condemned and sanctioned him for not handing over the two indicted Libyans to stand trial for murdering 259 people on the plane, as well as 11 people on the ground in Lockerbie, Scotland.
Khadafy has never acknowledged or accepted responsibility for this crime.
And now, watching him stand on the podium at the United Nations, it's obvious to me why he thinks he doesn't need to. Your crimes are apparently absolved when you show up in Turtle Bay.
And some still think the U.N. is effective.
