*Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan continued Thursday in his role as Moammar Gadhafi’s only outspoken friend in the United States.

But Farrakhan told a packed house at his Chicago headquarters that he considered Gadhafi a brother, and that if there was any “gangster” on the world stage, it was the United States.

“I don’t care what Gadhafi has done wrong. He’s not the mad dog of the Middle East,” Farrakhan thundered. “The mad dogs are growling and biting in Washington, D.C.”
