  1. Ironically, he probably doesn’t know how to spell it either. I think anyone who’s taken as much acid as Gahdafi probably spells his name differently each time he writes it.

    1. According to the AP’s Facebook article, Gahdafi himself spelled it that way in a letter he wrote to American school children back in 1989. (Who knew he could write?) That’s when AP adopted the spelling.

... and that's my two cents
