Smitten Gadhafi? Rebels find Condoleezza Rice scrapbook

(CNN) - We'd long heard that Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi admired former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Back in 2007, he called her "Leeza ... my darling black African woman" whom he loved "very much."

Just words? Perhaps. Or maybe, as a discovery this week suggests, he really was quite impressed.

    It was always known that Ghadaffi had a "crush" on Rice – this is nothing new.

    Qaddafi is dam smart Dog, when it comes to manipulating Americans. In Bill Clinton time, he offered $1 Billion for Black American Muslimo-Facist Leuis Farakha.

    Since that day, Farakha caused a lots of problems for American People. He even brought more Moneys from other Arab Countries through other people. Within few Years, Thousands of Mosques has been built in American Soil.

    Hmmm...the more Mosques they built, they will cause Cultural Phobias to others. This is another way of Terrorists, occupying American land by Mosques.

    Wake-up America! Instead of finger pointing after,....

    Well, I wonder why he admired her so much.....perhaps it's because she's fluent in Russian?

    "By the beard of Allah, this Cond-allah-izza is surely easy on the eyes. Ohh yes."

    That's probably why the Bush admin. was so easy on him. –Moammar and Condy had 'secret' negotiations.....

    He's a creep, but Ms. Rice is a lovely woman, I guess beneath his rough personna he's still a male. Poor Ms. Rice, I hope he isn't too infactuated. She deserves so much more.

    Oh please!!! Is kadaffi hallucinating again? He needs to wake up and give up the keys of lybia. Enough of dreams.

    Didn't Rice meet with Ghaddafi? I wonder if they had something going on.
