Muammar Gaddafi: Obsessed with Condoleezza Rice
Gaddafi Kept Book of Condi Rice Pics
After Libyan rebels stormed Muammar Gaddafi's Bab al-Azizia compound in Tripoli, they found some pretty strange stuff. For example, a book of Condoleezza Rice photos.
Muammar Gaddafi met Condoleezza Rice, then US Secretary of State, in 2008. It was the first time a US Secretary of State visited Libya in 50 years, and Gaddafi was quite taken with Rice.
Perhaps we should have seen this coming, now that we look back at Gaddafi's description of Condi Rice, whom he described as "[his] darling black African woman" :
"She beckons to the Arab foreign ministers, and they come to her, either in groups or individually. . . . Leezza, Leezza, Leezza. . . . I love her very much. I admire her, and I'm proud of her, because she's a black woman of African origin."
... And now we find a book of Condi Rice photos. Okay, creepy. Also, you just said, "Leezza" in Gaddafi's voice, and now you feel weird.
Meanwhile, in Aisha Gaddafi's house, rebels found a gold mermaid couch that tied the whole room together.
What isn't funny: also found were the bodies of 15 executed political activists.
