World Economic Forum Ditches Saif Gaddafi

Libya's Saif Gaddafi has been stripped of his "Young Global Leader" status by the Davos World Economic Forum.

According to WEF:

Young Global Leaders represent the future of leadership, coming from all regions of the world and representing business, government, civil society, arts & culture, academia and media, as well as social entrepreneurs.

Nominated under 40, these young leaders are proposed through a qualified nomination process and assessed according to rigorous selection criteria that creates a diverse and truly representative body, while accepting only the very best leaders who have already demonstrated their commitment to serving society at large.
Among the global plotters, and apologists for the plotters, who have not yet caused enough public embarrassment to be thrown under the WEF bus and, thus, remain members in good standing of WEF's "Young Global Leaders" are:

  1. WEF sounds like a wrestling reference, and for good reason.

  2. Thanks for the Monday morning laugh. Had you not posted the Davos link I would have thought this was some kind of Onion type joke. Just another reason to keep buying gold.

  3. As for Germany's career driven war minister

    Karl-Theodor Freiherr zu Guttenberg, Federal Minister of Defence of the Federal Republic of Germany, Federal Ministry of Defence of Germany


  4. Mohamer's offspring is only doing what comes naturally. Saif said he will incite a civil war and will fire the last bullet if necessary. This is the fruit of USA foreign policy at work. Keep the tyrant in power. As far as the WEF, they are complicit with this useless piece of humanity. No Tripoli forum this spring for these spineless future leaders.
