MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (TDB) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been giving the Chinese hell. House Minority Leader John Boehner has been making nice with Col. Moammar Kaddafi, the Libyan strongman. News of the Butler County Republican's soiree is here on JANA, the Libyan news service where Kaddafi is identifed as the "leader of the revolution." Boehner reportedly was interested in tapping the Libyan oilfields. Here's another story about the meeting from AFP, the French wire service. And here's Boehner's press release (h/t Weapons of Mass Discussion), which talks about enlisting Kaddafi in the War on Terror.
