Rebels Find Muammar Gaddafi's Photo Album Dedicated To Condoleeza Rice
While Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi may be a strict dictator, he does have a soft spot in his heart---for Condoleeza Rice at least.
As rebels took his compound under siege this week they made a bizarre discovery, a photo album dedicated entirely the former Secretary of State.
The Associated Press reports that his fascination with Rice should come as no surprise considering that he previously expressed his love in an interview with Al-Jazeera television in 2007.
Speaking publicly about Rice 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.'
His love for her heightened however when she visited Libya in 2008 and met Gadaffi for the first time in person.
The AP reports that he continued to address her as "Leeza" and lavished her with gifts including a diamond ring and a locket engraved with his likeness, a haul all together worth over $212,000.
Now with the Libya leader fleeing his compound, rebels are ransacking his palace and taking whatever they can find---his dedication to his beloved "Leeza" included.
Check out pictures of Gadaffi's photo album below.
Do you think the tyrant had a school boy crush on lil Leeza?
