Chuck Schumer: “It’s clear that the Libyan government’s love affair with terrorism hasn’t ended yet.”
New York Senator Chuck Schumer appealed to the United Nations Saturday to condemn Libya’s joyful welcome home for the Lockerbie bomber.
“If Libya wants to be embraced by the international community, embracing convicted terrorists is not the way to do it,” Schumer said. “It’s clear that the Libyan government’s love affair with terrorism hasn’t ended yet.”
At a news conference, Schumer said he is asking U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice to introduce a resolution denouncing Libya’s over zealous heroes welcome and wants an apology.
Schumer said he wants this resolution passed before Libyan leader Moammar Ghadafi arrives in New York next month for a U.N. General Assembly meeting.
