This paragraph, from the Times:
"Wearing a traditional copper-colored outfit and a pin in the shape of Africa on his chest, Colonel Qaddafi gestured and glowered, with occasional reference to scrawled written notes, and at one point grabbed an audio device to check how his words were being translated. Ali Abdussalam Treki, the Libyan diplomat who now holds the rotating presidency of the General Assembly, introduced him as the 'leader of the revolution, president of the African Union, King of Kings of Africa.'"
The troubling part: "...the Libyan diplomat who now holds the rotating presidency of the General Assembly." It's hard to believe, actually.
