Saif Gaddafi takes down another

The head of the LSE has resigned.

The Guardian:
His resignation came as a US consultancy admitted mishandling a multimillion dollar contract with Libya to sanitise Gaddafi's reputation in the west. Monitor Group, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, organised for academics and policymakers from the US and UK to travel to Tripoli to meet the Libyan despot between 2006 and 2008, as part of a $3m (£1.8m) contract.

The Guardian does not make the connection that the Monitor Group is credited with gathering data for Saif Gaddafi's thesis.
