not just the son of a murderous despot

saif qaddafi's recent speech got people looking at his doctoral dissertation: "The Role of Civil Society in the Democratization of Global Governance Institutions: From ‘Soft Power’ to Collective Decision-Making?." (pdf)

it turns out that the dissertation is not just ironic, it's also plagiarized. now he might lose his country and his phd, assuming he survives the coming weeks, that is.
