The Gaddafi Files: Congressman Dennis Kucinich Sought To Help Dictator’s Image; Ex-US Diplomat Was Secretly Advising Gaddafi

Eli Lake has a terrific report in the Washington Times concerning new captured documents from Libya. The documents reveal exactly who in the west was communicating with Col. Gaddafi’s regime  what they were saying.  Among the findings?  Congressman Dennis Kucinich was looking for dirt on the Libyan rebels, through an intermediary,  from one of  Col. Gaddafi’s son. From Lake:
Another document found by Al-Jazeera inside the personal office of Abdullah al-Senussi, Libya’s intelligence chief, was a memo addressed to Col. Gadhafi’s son, Saif al-Islam, describing a conversation between an intermediary for the son and Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, Ohio Democrat and outspoken critic of the military intervention in Libya since it was launched in March.
That document, according to Al-Jazeera, said Mr. Kucinich was asking for information aimed at discrediting the Libyan opposition, such as evidence of corruption and links to al Qaeda. The information requested by Mr. Kucinich, according to the report, was aimed at improving the Libyan regime’s image, defending Saif al-Islam from charges against him in the International Criminal Court, and building a case against NATO and the U.S. government in a court challenge to the war.
