A clarification with dual licensing


I was advised to contact debian legal on this matter. 
A libstrophe software [1] claims to have dual license, as read from LICENSE.txt [2]: 
libstrophe XMPP client library
Copyright (C) 2005-2009 Collecta, Inc.

This program is dual licensed under the MIT and GPLv3 licenses.
Please the files MIT-LICENSE.txt and GPL-LICENSE.txt for details.

The package also links to openssl, so from obvious reasons MIT would
be better for us. 

The question is, in this case, can I "choose" a license to be MIT or
the "and" word glues these two licenses together ?
