According to documents discovered in the aftermath of Gadhafi's death and released by a group called WikiLeaks Libya, Randell K. Wood, a UMKC Law School graduate with offices in Kansas City and Springfield, Missouri, and his son, Noah, sent the U.S. Treasury Department a letter asking for permission to provide services for Gadhafi's government. Additionally, Wood signed a letter pitching the services of a group of businessmen and lawyers called the American Action Group, touting the ways they could help the Libyan government. The Wood Law Firm also sent a contract to Libya promising to bring the country in line with UN resolutions and to negotiate on behalf of the country with the United States and the UN. The contract sought a $10 million retainer for the group.
The letter from the American Action Group, which was sent on April 17, is awfully friendly toward Gadhafi, addressing him as "Your excellency," calling the signatories "Libyan sympathizers," and is signed "Your Obedient Servants." It appears that the Woods might already be regretting trying to make a money grab during the despot's last days in power. The Star says the father and son aren't returning calls.
The Star reports that the Treasury Department didn't grant the Woods permission to represent Libya. See the documents after the jump.
