Muammar Qaddafi, the Libyian dictator who bombs his own people, recently did an interview with ABC’s Christine Amanpour. He seems to be in denial about where his leadership is going.

“Why would they overthrow me?” he explains to Amanpour. “My people love me. They would die for me.”

In his world, the protestors aren’t disgruntled citizens of Libya but terrorists. He even blamed al Qaeda for this.

Via Gawker: He said the people who have taken over Benghazi in eastern Libya are terrorists and al Qaeda operatives. He doesn’t believe people are demonstrating against him. He repeated the charge that those who are have been given hallucinogenic drugs — a claim he first made in his televised speech broadcast last week.

Well, alrighty.
