Former Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Penn., is in Libya to meet with its leader, Moammar Gadhafi, and will urge him to resign, the ex-congressman writes in a New York Times opinion piece.
In 2004 Weldon headed a congressional delegation that visited Libya to offer support for Gadhafi’s decision to renounce nuclear weapons.
“Seven years later I am back in Libya, this time on a much different mission, as the leader of a small private delegation, at the invitation of Colonel Gadhafi‘s chief of staff and with the knowledge of the Obama administration and members of Congress from both parties,” Weldon wrote in the Times.
“Our purpose is to meet with Colonel Gadhafi today [Wednesday] and persuade him to step aside.
"There is no question that America should play a critical role in helping the Libyans build a new government,” Weldon added.
