Libya's Gadhafi: U.N. Unfair in It's Leadership

Ad Feedback

Addressing the United Nations for the first time, Wednesday, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi accused the U.N. of being unfair in its leadership.

Gadhafi spoke for more than an hour and a half at the meeting in New York, accusing the U.N. of not being fair and favoring rich countries.

He was especially critical of the U.N. Security Council.

"Now the security council is a security of feudalism, political feudalism for those who have a permanent seat, protected by them and they are used against them, against us," Gadhafi said.  "It should not be called a security council it should be called the terror council."

Gadhafi's trip to the U.S. has caused a storm of controversy.

Despite protests before his arrival, the Libyan leader erected a tent in Bedford, N.J., about 40 miles from New York City.

The tent is pitched on an estate belonging to Donald Trump.

Workers were erecting the tent when they were told to stop construction because it violated zoning laws.

Now, residents of Bedford want the tent taken down.

Gadhafi often travels with a trademark bedouin tent.
