GATHER FOR GADHAFI
The Livingston Group (TLG) in Washington is helping organize the 40th anniversary celebration of Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s 1969 coup takeover of Libya, while also working to reduce airport hassles of Libyan officials and citizens by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.
O’Dwyer’s Public Relations News (www.odwyerpr.com) calls attention to a 42-page document stamped “confidential,” crediting former House Speaker-designate Bob Livingston, Louisiana Republican, and his TLG team for working “around the clock” to ensure passage of a bill signed into law in August that approved settlement claims with family members of doomed Pan Am Flight 103, which Libyan agents packed with explosives and blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland.
“ ‘Recognition of 40th anniversary of the Revolution’ is among special projects that TLG plans to tackle,” O’Dwyer states. “It plans to show how life has improved under Gadhafi and identify U.S. companies eager to join the festivities.”
