Black flower in the White House

No, this is not a post about Michele Obama. It's about recently departed Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi's obsession with former US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.
“It was weird, but at least it wasn’t raunchy.”

— Condoleezza Rice on Moammar Gaddafi’s “eerie fascination with me” and the video tribute he made (a song called “Black Flower in the White House” played over Condi pics), writes the former secretary of state in her upcoming memoir, “No Higher Honor,” reports the New York Times.
Actually it almost did get raunchy.
When she visited Libya in 2008, an official on the trip told me, Gadhafi tried to seduce Ms. Rice with a specially made music video, before trying to drag her into his private quarters – apparently thinking the video had sufficiently impressed. State Department officials thought otherwise and grabbed her other hand – and (much to her relief) eventually won the ensuing tug-of-war. When Libyan fighters entered Gadhafi’s Tripoli compound last week they found an album full of pictures of Ms. Rice.
Sorry but Gadhafi had nothing on Yasser Arafat.
But it's been known for years that Arafat was gay due a book called "Red Horizons" by Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, the former head of Romanian intelligence under Nicolai Ceausescu.
He relates a conversation with Constantin Munteaunu, a general assigned to teach Arafat and the Palestinian Liberation Organization operations in deception and influence designed to fool the West into granting the organization recognition.

"I just called the microphone monitoring center to ask about the 'Fedayee,'" Arafat's code name, explained Munteaunu. "After the meeting with the Comrade, he went directly to the guest house and had dinner. At this very moment, the 'Fedayee' is in his bedroom making love to his bodyguard. The one I knew was his latest lover. He's playing tiger again. The officer monitoring his microphones connected me live with the bedroom, and the squawling almost broke my eardrums. Arafat was roaring like a tiger, and his lover yelping like a hyena."

Munteaunu continued: "I've never before seen so much cleverness, blood and filth all together in one man."

Munteaunu, wrote Pacepa, spent months pulling together secret reports from Egyptian, Jordanian and Syrian intelligence agencies as well as Romanian files.

"I used to think I knew just about everything there was to know about Rahman al-Qudwa," Arafat's real name, "about the construction engineer who made a fortune in Kuwait, about the passionate collector of racing cars, about Abu Amman," Arafat's nom de guerre, "and about my friend Yasser, with all his hysterics," explained Munteaunu, handing Pacepa his final report on the PLO leader. "But I've got to admit that I didn't really know anything about him."

Wrote Pacepa: "The report was indeed an incredible account of fanaticism, of devotion to his cause, of tangled oriental political maneuvers, of lies, of embezzled PLO funds deposited in Swiss banks, and of homosexual relationships, beginning with his teacher when he was a teen-ager and ending with his current bodyguards. After reading the report, I felt a compulsion to take a shower whenever I had been kissed by Arafat, or even just shaken his hand."
