One source of resentment against Qaddafi’s rule has been the favored status of his sons. One of them, Al-Saadi, bought his way onto an Italian soccer team (above), though the team manager largely refused to play him. Another son, Saif, was awarded a PhD by the London School of Economics, to which he gave $2.5 million. According to a U.S. cable, brother Muatassim paid Mariah Carey $1 million to sing four songs at a Caribbean New Year's party on St. Barts.
