TRIPOLI, Libya -- The Obama administration offered millions of dollars in new aid to Libya as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton encouraged the country's unsteady new leadership to commit to a democratic future free of retribution, and acknowledged in unusually blunt terms that the United States would like to see former dictator Moammar Gadhafi dead.
"We hope he can be captured or killed soon so that you don't have to fear him any longer," Clinton told students and others at a town hall-style gathering in the capital city.
Until now, the U.S. has generally avoided saying that Gadhafi should be killed.
U.S. officials usually say they want to see him brought to justice, something Clinton also said during her daylong visit.
"I am proud to stand here on the soil of a free Libya," Clinton said. "The United States was proud to stand for you in your fight for freedom and we will continue to stand with you as you continue this journey."

'We're on your side,' Clinton tells Libyans
TRIPOLI, Libya - In a historic visit punctuated by celebratory gunfire and cries of "God is great," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton toured the Libyan capital Tuesday to pledge continued U.S. support for a transitional government still struggling to consolidate control over the war-ravaged country.
“The fresh aid boosts Washington’s contribution since the uprising against Gadhafi began in February to roughly $135 million.”
No matter what your politics, no matter what you think about this issue.... this is N O T the language that should come out of the mouth of ANY American politician.....NOT in public!!! Evita is and always was a ham-fisted clod. THIS is NOT diplomacy.
I always thought that the House of Representatives was responsible for doling out the money.
I have seen Obama hand out Billions of dollars without it ever being discussed inthe House.
Obama is running this country and the Congress is just a wasted effort.
Tear down the capitol and turn it into Public Housing, we don’t need no stionking Congress, Obama is Der Fehrer.
Anyone seen the actual footage of Clintoon touring the Libyan capital? With Tripoli landmarks that could be clearly identified and time stamp of 2011/10/18?
The only thing I've seen are photos that could be staged in any base.
I suspect that she was not in Tripoli at all.
I like this photo the best:
Very true. This is the language of a mafia capo. What a disgrace she is.
