Libya's Moammar Gaddafi said in an usual debate Friday it was time for his long-isolated nation to open up to the world and that one day it won't need him as leader. Still, he touted the ruling ideology he has entrenched here for three decades as superior to Western democracy. The debate itself was a sign of the gradual change in the oil-rich country: Two Western intellectuals held a rare back-and-forth with a leader long vilified in the West, who is still viewed as an eccentric autocrat even as Libya emerges from its pariah status.
