Libya rebels discover Gaddafi’s Condoleezza Rice photo album

Libyan rebels looting Muammar Gaddafi’s compound in Tripoli have discovered an album filled with photos of former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Muammar Gaddafi has a well-known affection for Rice, and the strange photo album features page after page of pictures of her, many of them close-ups, reports MSNBC, which obtained photos of the album.

Rice visited Libya in 2008 during the brief period that saw Gaddafi’s international reputation rehabilitated, and Washington restore diplomatic relations with the former enemy state. During her stay in Tripoli, Rice shared a late-night dinner with Gaddafi to break the Ramadan fast, the Washington Post says.

“His [Gaddafi’s] face lit up when he saw Rice,” the Post wrote at the time.
