TRIPOLI, Libya, March 20 (UPI) -- Moammar Gadhafi's son said Sunday he is shocked that President Barack Obama, once seen as a "friend," is "terrorizing" Libya.

Saif al-Islam, interviewed on ABC's "This Week," said, "The Americans and the British and the French attacked Libya, attacked five cities, terrorized people."

Libya had believed Obama was "a good man and friend of Arab world," he added.

"Our people went to Benghazi to liberate Benghazi from the gangsters and the armed militia," Saif said. "So if you … want to help the Libyan people in Benghazi, so go to Benghazi and liberate Benghazi from the militia and the terrorists."

He called the conflict "a big misunderstanding. The whole country is united against the armed militia and the terrorists. … You are supporting the terrorists and the armed militia."

Saif closed with a warning to the Americans: "One day, you wake up and you will find out that you were supporting the wrong people. And you are making a big mistake with supporting those people. It's like the WMD in Iraq."
