The mystery appears to be solved. From the air and on the ground, New York media were in hot pursuit today of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's tent. He's in town for the United Nations General Assembly. But, where did he put up his tent? The answer may surprise you.
The tent is in Westchester County, New York just north of the city on property owned by the Trump Organization. Yes, as in Donald Trump. The organization said in statement: "We have business partners and associates all over the world. The property was leased on a short-term basis to Middle Eastern partners, who may or may not have a relationship to Mr. Gadhafi. We are looking into the matter."
A lot of people are not happy with Colonel Gadhafi's tent location. "There is no legal way to prevent this, as he is a head of state, despite the fact that he has a long history as a terrorist," County Executive Andy Spano said in a statement. "However, from my point of view, he is not welcome in Westchester."
There are reports his request to pitch his tent in Central Park was denied. And, last month you may recall there was speculation that Gadhafi would put up his tent in Englewood, New Jersey, on the lawn of a home owned by the Libyan government. The residents of the predominately Orthodox Jewish community didn't want a visit from a leader who has made anti-Zionist statements in the past. It's also where dozens of victims of the Pam Am 103 bombing lived. Two suspects charged in the attack were Libyan citizens. One was never convicted. The other was recently released heightening the bitterness toward Gadhafi.
Tonight we'll have the latest developments on the Gadhafi controversy. And, find out why Gadhafi likes to set up tents when he travels. He's done it in France, Italy, Russia and many other places.
Would you be upset if Gadhafi pitched his tent in your town? Sound off below.
