In the wake of the unrest/civil war/revolution in Libya, a lot of media attention has been paid to the eccentricities of their four-decade long leader and tyrant, Moammar Gadhafi. He’s been garnering twitter hits for his wacky ways, his bizarre quotes, and of course, his inhumane ability to fire on his own citizens. Adding to the long list of Gadhafi’s strange proclivities is his choice of personal protection: an all-female, lipsticked legion of virgins who accompany the leader as his personal bodyguards.
