Luxury, horror lurk in Gadhafi family compound
29-Aug-2011 (11 comments)

Tripoli, Libya (CNN) -- Moammar Gadhafi told his people he lived modestly during his nearly 42-year rule over Libya, often sleeping in a Bedouin tent.

Even if that was true for the leader, it certainly wasn't for his sons.

At a seaside compound in western Tripoli, the Gadhafi boys enjoyed a decadent lifestyle that his people could only dream about, while perpetrating unspeakable horrors on the staff that served their every whim.

CNN visited the seaside homes Sunday.

The first house we entered was apparently the "party" beach condo with an oversized door that led into sleek, modern, black-and-white rooms. It had been ransacked by the rebels, but still it was spectacular, with panoramic ocean views and plenty of evidence of the hedonism for which Hannibal Gadhafi -- one of Moammar Gadhafi's sons -- is famous.

Come to think of it, Ahmadi does talk about Hugo Chavez a lot. I don't know how Ahmadi's wife looks. Maybe Hugo is more feminie looking and cuter than she is.

It's true! He did live in a bedouin tent most of the time.

He is very fond of camel milk. I know this for a fact.

From the pictures I see Ahmadi seems to have a crush on Hugo Chavez.

I like Faramarz's explanation and RB's guess would not surprise me.

More likely we'll find out Khamenei has a crush on Bill!

Kim Jong-il had the hots for Madeleine Albright, Gadhafi had it for Condi and it wouldn't surprise me if Ahmadi dreams about Hilary in her tight pants!

Fanon explained it this way. It is the lust for revenge when a black (colonized) male wants to sleep with a white woman!

we find out that Khamenei or antari has a crush on Hillary.


Moammar Had the Hots for Condi!

As my dear grandma used to say, "If everyone liked the same kind of woman, then who is going to marry all these other women!"

There was a rumor that while Condi was at University of Denver, she had an Iranian lover, but things didn't work out!

This was actually the funniest thing Rebels found in Ghadaffi's compound.

Gaddafi's 'Deeply Creepy' Condoleezza Photos



Rebels raiding Colonel Gaddafi's compound in Tripoli have made perhaps their most bizarre discovery yet – a photo album packed with pictures of Condoleezza Rice.


The unusual find has raised some eyebrows in Washington


Glossy images of America's former Secretary of State were discovered by looters after the besieged leader fled his lair.

Col Gaddafi has previously expressed strong feelings for Miss Rice – in a TV interview in 2007 he described her as his "darling black African woman".

"I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders," he told the Al Jazeera network.

Hope they catch Gaddafi and his henchmen and Sons Alive for a Nuremburg style Trial to have him respond for all these horrendous crimes.
