The White House declined to comment on a letter that an Illinois Republican send to President Obama demanding that he cancel funding for two $200,000 State Department grants to groups belonging to Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi's children. Rep. Mark Kirk wrote the letter after the State Department notified the House Appropriations Committee on Sept. 15 of its intent to provide the foundation belonging to the Libyan dictators son, Saif, with a $200,000 and an additional $200,000 to Waettasmeno UNDP Foundation run by his daughter, Aisha. Last month, when Scotland freed Abel Baset al-Megrahi, the only man convicted in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, Gadhafi greeted him with a heros welcome, Kirk wrote in his Sept. 23 letter to President Obama. As you know, Megrahi was accompanied back to Libya by Gadhafi's son, Saif, who was involved with negotiations for Megrahis release. Just weeks after the Gadhafi family celebrated the return of a terrorist for the murders of 189 Americans, the U.S. taxpayer should not be asked to reward them with $400,000. For the sake of the victims families who have endured so much pain these last few weeks, I ask you to withdraw your Administrations request. The State Department told Newsmax the grants were part of a larger $2.5 million economic support program intended to promote democracy and womens economic opportunities in Libya, which Congress appropriated for fiscal year 2009. White House Mum on Gadhafi Grants Unbelievable.
