Gadhafi says US should seek peace with Bin Laden

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has an seemingly unthinkable suggestion for new US President Barack Obama: give Osama bin Laden a chance to make peace. Gadhafi, who is known for outspoken comments, told an audience of American students by video conference Wednesday that bin Laden has shown signs that he is open to dialogue. He recommended that Obama seek an opening with the terrorist leader who is considered enemy number one in the United States for ordering the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Gadhafi ended years of Libya's international isolation in 2003 when he renounced terrorism and gave up efforts to develop nuclear weapons. The same year, Libya accepted responsibility for the 1988 Pan Am airplane bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland that killed 270 people.
