Kadafi, Gaddafi, Gadhafi, or Qaddafi?

The top news story on Google news concerns the first name on the title of this post, Kadafi. Below this story are three related stories about Gaddafi, Gadhafi, and Qaddafi. Anyone who has had their spelling corrected, might wonder why, considering the total lack of consistency on the spelling of this name.

I hope someday soon we stop having news stories about Kadafi, since Gaddafi is an unpleasant individual and the people of Libya are better off without him. Even Gadhafi’s sons should not be in power. But those in favor of correct spelling will be happy when no one can point to a well known individual and say that there is no correct way to spell Qaddafi.
