Qaddafi’s Condi Rice Crush: Real? Or From The Onion?

It’s time once again for everyone’s second favorite blog game: Is it real? Or is it from The Onion? (the favorite game, of course, is “Dear Penthouse? Or The NY Times?“)

today’s submission:

“When rebels stormed Muammar Qaddafi’s fortified compound this week, they found the Libyan dictator’s photo album of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland today described the discovery as “deeply bizarre and deeply creepy.”

In September 2008, when Qaddafi was seeking to improve relations with the U.S., he and Rice had an Iftar meal to mark the end of the daily fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Rice’s eight-hour stop in Tripoli made her the highest-level U.S. official to visit Libya in more than 50 years.

For the occasion, Qaddafi donned a white robe with a green and yellow sash patterned in outlines of the African continent. Rice was dressed in a sober pin-striped grey suit.”

“Qaddafi had been an ardent fan of Rice even before their face-to-face encounter. In a 2007 interview with al Jazeera he described her as his “darling black African woman.” He referred to her as Leezza and said “I love her very much.” “

The answer is here – yes, it’s real, and incomprehensibly bizarre.
