Secretary Clinton and the U.S. State Department are trying to find accommodations for Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi, who’ll be visiting New York for next month’s U.N. General Assembly meeting. He prefers to erect Bedouin-style air-conditioned tents, such as this tent he set up in Paris in 2007, but his request to camp in Central Park was rejected.

The finance chairman of Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign has been accused of fraud for allegedly lying to Citibank to secure a $74 million loan.
