Gadhafi son got ‘standard’ VIP tour of AF Academy
DENVER — The Air Force Academy confirms that a son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi visited the school last month during a U.S. tour that included businesses and other schools.
Academy spokesman Lt. Col. John Bryan said today that Khamis Gadhafi got a “standard” VIP tour of the school on Feb. 7.
Bryan says that included academic, athletic and residential buildings and briefings from Brig. Gen. Dana Born, the dean of faculty, and Col. Tamra Rank, the vice superintendent.
Bryan says the academy conducts dozens of such tours every year and that Gadhafi wouldn’t have learned anything of benefit to the Libyan military.
The tour, first reported last week, was organized by an infrastructure company with business interests in Libya. It was cut short when the Libyan uprising erupted Feb. 15.
