After capturing Muammar Qaddafi's compound in Tripoli, Libyan rebels found a cache of ... photos of former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Qaddafi has maintained a not-so-secret crush on Rice for years. As The Atlantic Wire's Uri Friedman notes, he presented her with an estimated $212,225.00 in gifts on Sept. 5, 2008 -- including a diamond ring in a wooden box, a locket with his photo in it, and a lute and accompanying DVD. Rice accepted the gifts because "non-acceptance would cause embarrassment to donor and U.S. Government," according to this State Department document.
MSNBC has another photo, taken from the photo service Abaca.
The thing about this is: Who doesn't have a crush on Condoleezza Rice? Ask Jack Donaghy. Ask former Denver Bronco Rick Upchurch, who was engaged to Rice at one point. Ask anybody.
