What's a Terrorist Got to Do to Find a Place to Sleep?

Well, that didn't last long. We noted last night Libyan thug Moammar Khadafy had set up camp up in Bedford, NY, on Donald Trump's property.

Well, not so fast.
Unwelcome Libyan thug Moammar Khadafy briefly found a comfy spot to rest his foul head yesterday -- at Donald Trump's palatial estate in suburban Westchester.

But town officials in tony Bedford put the kibosh on the dictator's plans to use his Bedouin-style tent on the real-estate mogul's property, which Trump rents out for tens of thousands of dollars a month.

The wandering Khadafy -- who arrived in New York City yesterday to a zero's welcome -- was sent packing when a building inspector ordered his henchmen to stop erecting the white tent because they didn't have a work permit.

After initially denying that his property had been rented to Khadafy, Trump later backtracked and admitted it could have happened.

It's unclear if Khadafy -- an international pariah who has struggled to find lodgings for his visit to the United States -- will use the property's seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion, or if he's only comfortable in outhouses.

Regardless, residents of the ritzy town -- which counts Martha Stewart as a resident -- were reeling.

"The neighbors are appalled, absolutely," said a nearby resident.

State Sen. Vincent Leibell (R-Westchester) said, "Most people wish he'd go home and stay there."

After reports yesterday afternoon said the hated Khadafy was putting up a tent, Trump's spokeswoman, Rona Graff, told The Post, "There is no truth to the rumors. I'm not even going to engage in a dialogue on this."

But shortly afterward, Graff released the following statement: "We have business partners and associates all over the world. The property was leased on a short-term basis to Middle Eastern partners, who may or may not have a relationship to Mr. Khadafy. We are looking into the matter."
Nice weasel words there.

Trump should be embarrassed.
