WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. is mocking Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi over his claim that anti-government protesters are misguided youths given drugs and money by a "small, sick group."

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley has a new Twitter posting that jabs Gadhafi's "hardly sober claim that protesters are on drugs."

Crowley says "the people of Libya are clear-eyed in their demand for change."

Gadhafi made the comment in a speech Tuesday on state TV when he declared himself "a warrior" and promised to fight on and die a "martyr."
