DENVER (AP) - The Air Force Academy confirms that a son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi visited the school last month during a U.S. tour that included businesses and other schools.
Academy spokesman Lt. Col. John Bryan said Wednesday that Khamis Gadhafi got a standard VIP tour of the school on Feb. 7 - eight days before the Libyan uprising began. Bryan says it included academic, athletic and residential buildings, and briefings from the dean of faculty and the vice superintendent.
Bryan says Gadhafi wouldn't have learned anything of benefit to the Libyan military. The U.S. tour, first reported last week, was organized by an infrastructure company with business interests in Libya. It was cut short when the Libyan uprising erupted.
