According to MSNBC, the ransacking of Moammar Gadhafi's compound has brought to light some rather bizarre things.
We're not talking just about the wardrobe a pimp from the 70s would've raised an eyebrow at or his daughter's golden mermaid couch. Oh no.
We're talking about a photo album which is filled to the rim with photos of Condoleezza Rice.
From the article:
The former U.S. Secretary of State paid a visit to Tripoli in 2008 during a brief interlude that saw Gadhafi begin to be welcomed back into the international fold. As Jason Ukman of the Washington Post wrote on Wednesday, "it was only three short years ago that Rice shared a late-night dinner with Gaddafi to break the Ramadan fast, three short years ago that the United States and Libya were celebrating what was to be a new chapter in their relations."
In a 2007 interview with al-Jazeera television, Gadhafi spoke of Rice in glowing terms. "I support my darling black African woman," he said. "I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders ... 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."
