This guy's been in power for 42 years, and still we can't agree on his name?
So it's not just me. The Christian Science Monitor online (actually, CSM scrapped its print edition a few years ago, so that's redundant) just posted this:
Gaddafi? Kadafi? Qaddafi? What's the correct spelling?
You say, Gaddafi, we say Qaddafi. Other variations on the leader of Libya include "Gathafi," "Kadafi," and "Gadafy," creating an unholy mess for newspaper editors.
