McCain tweeted 'interesting' Gadhafi meeting in August

Some would use the word "interesting" to describe Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, who gave his first ever speech before the United Nations on Wednesday.

Last month, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) described a meeting with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi as an "interesting meeting with an interesting man." McCain met with the leader as part of a congressional delegation visiting the North African nation.

The 2008 presidential nominee later revealed that he warned Gadhafi against giving a hero's welcome to Lockerbie bomber Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi who helped kill 270 people in an attack of a Pan-American jet in 1988.

After being released from Scottish prison due to illness, Megrahi received a celebratory welcome in when he arrived back in Libya about a week after the meeting with Gadhafi.

Today, the controversial head-of-state had some choice words for veto holding members of the UN Security Council. Gadhafi accused the council members of violating the charter of the UN by wielding disproportionate power in the body.
