Libya’s exiled opposition (there is no domestic opposition allowed) got its hands on the lobbying strategy of Col. Moammar Qadaffi’s Washington lobbying firm, the Livingston Group. As reported by O’Dwyer’s:
The Livingston Group wants to help Libya reduce airport hassles by U.S. Transportation Security Administration screeners, celebrate the 40th anniversary of Col. Gaddafi’s takeover, craft a corporate responsibility program, educate American military contractors about opportunities available, and develop history- and eco-tourism, according to a document obtained by a Libyan opposition group.
The 42-page document is marked “confidential” and called “2008-2009 Full Normalization Action Program: Moving the New Libya-U.S. Bilateral Relationship Forward.” It is posted in Arabic and English on the website of the National Conference of the Libyan Opposition.
