Muammar Qaddafi hearts Condi Rice. Big time.

Among the bizarre items rebels have found among the Libyan strongman’s Bab al-Aziziya compound is a photo album someone took the time to fill with photos of the former U.S. Secretary of State, msnbc.com reports.

Qaddafi’s crush on Rice isn’t exactly a secret. In a 2007 interview with al-Jazeera, Qaddafi gushed: "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. I admire her and I'm proud of her because she's a black woman of African origin."

As odd as the photo album may be, it’s far from the weirdest item found in Qaddafi’s compound. That honor goes to a golden mermaid sofa.

Here's a peak at the photo album. (You can view more photos over at msnbc.com.)
