Is the US Desperate by Trying to Buy Libyans?

Envoys dangle financial offer to key Gadhafi aides

So this is how people join revolution! High ideals, seeing this differently now … No, wait, it’s just a bribe! And as bribes go in the ol’ good US of A, this one is legal, too.

“It’s an offer that diplomats hope Moammar Gadhafi’s family and top aides can’t refuse: If they publicly withdraw support for the Libyan dictator’s regime, the restrictions on their assets and travel plans could be made to vanish.”

The issue, of course, is whether they should trust such a promise. After all, Gadhafi also got a promise that he will be left alone after he gave up his nuclear program and chemical weapons .
