Gaddafi's daughter taunts Obama and Clinton

The daughter of Colonel Gaddafi has taunted President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, saying the president has 'achieved nothing' while chastising Clinton for not leaving her husband after he had an affair.

In response to allied attacks on her native Libya, Aisha Gaddafi used personal jibes to try to rattle the American leadership.
While calling for open talks to begin to try to end the conflict in Libya, Ms Gaddafi said President Obama had 'achieved nothing so far'.
The glamorous Lawyer, once dubbed 'North Africa's Claudia Schiffer' because of her long blonde locks, then posed a personal question to Secretary of State Clinton about her husband Bill's affair with Monica Lewinsky when he was president.
'Why didn’t you leave the White House when you found out about the cheating of your husband?' she asked rhetorically, while laughing.
Speaking to the Western press for the first time in months, Ms Gaddafi, 36, gave an insight into the fatalistic outlook of the Libyan regime, describing how she talks to her children about death in order 'to make them ready'.
She said she likes to tell her three young children bedtime stories about the afterlife 'because in a time of war you never know when a rocket or a bomb might hit you, and that will be the end.'
The Libyan leader's daughter made the comments in an interview with the New York Times on Sunday, a few hours before NATO escalated its air strikes on Tripoli, again hitting the Libyan leader's compound.
Ms Gaddafi, who studied law in Paris and once worked on Saddam Hussein’s legal defense team, said rebels fighting for independence from her father's regime were 'terrorists' - but also indicated that some of their leaders, who used to be Gaddafi officials still 'keep in touch with us'. 'They (the rebels) say to us that they have their own families, daughters, sons, spouses, and they fear for them, and that is why they have taken those positions,' she said.
'There are many members of the council who have worked with my father for 42 years and been loyal to him. Do you think they would just go like that?' She accepted Gaddafi's forces may have shot unarmed demonstrators but played down its significance, saying it was 'limited in scope'.
While she called for peace talks, saying 'the world should come together at a round table,' Ms Gaddafi also remained defiant.
Dressed in jeans and Gucci shoes, she mocked the fact that earlier this year the UN stripped her of her title as a goodwill ambassador after previously 'begging' her to be a peace envoy.
She said the war in Libya had pulled her family together 'like one hand' and would remain in power because 'we have a great hope in God.'
She also insisted her father 'is as strong as the world knows him' and added that 'he is quite sure that the Libyan people are loyal to him.'
Without Colonel Gaddafi in charge of Libya, Ms Gaddafi predicted illegal immigrants from Africa would pour into the West and Islamic radicals would establish a base on the Mediterranean.
She blamed the West for interfering in Libya at a time, she claimed, when the Libyan government had been on the verge of unveiling a constitution as a step toward democratic reform.
Ms Gaddafi also used the ongoing violence in Iraq as a warning to America.
'The opposition in Iraq told the West that when you come to Iraq they will greet you with roses,' she said. 'Almost 10 years later they are receiving the Americans with bullets.'
'Believe me, the situation in Libya will be much worse,' she added.
