The capture of Tripoli led to several discoveries about Gaddafi. On 24 August 2011, after the capture of his stronghold of Bab al-Aziziya by loyalist forces, a photo album filled with pages of pictures of Condoleezza Rice was discovered inside the compound; the discovery was confirmed by an AP reporter, though it could not be confirmed that the album had actually belonged to Gaddafi. In a 2007 television interview, Gaddafi had previously praised Rice, saying “I support my darling black African woman. I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders… Leezza, Leezza, Leezza… I love her very much.” During Rice’s visit to Libya as Secretary of State, the wealthy Gaddafi showered her with gifts, including a diamond ring in a wood box, a locket with his photograph and a DVD with a musical instrument, with a total value of $212,225 (2008 value). During the visit, Gaddafi also showed the photo album to Rice, who described it then as “not standard diplomatic practice.”
From the looks of what is stated above about past events involving the last U.S. Executive Branchs’ cabinet members, what is known as Moore’s Law actually alsoÂ applies to world events as spoken about on the web at the rate that major change can take place.
I am watching the story unfold along with the rest of the world, and simultaneously fathoming the depth and scope of the web in the information age as it shows what seems to be individuals written into the webpages of history and edited as such at such a previously unimaginable rate.
