(Newser) – Late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi's diet of rape and torture is well-documented, but a new film delves deeper into his sexual predilections and habit of keeping dead enemies on ice—literally, the New York Post reports. Mad Dog: Inside the Secret World of Muammar Gaddafi, slated for Showtime this coming Friday, includes interviews with Gadhafi insiders who describe his revenge tactics. Henchman Frank Terpil, a renegade CIA agent, said he ran a Gadhafi "murder for hire" team with another ex-CIA man—and was paid $1 million to deliver a head "in a cooler to Libya so Gadhafi could actually look at the results of the work."

In fact, Gadhafi kept many victims in the freezer and would "visit their bodies frozen" over 25 years, says another source. The filmmakers also saw Ghadafi's secret sex chamber at Tripoli University, where he allegedly raped students after giving speeches on campus. The room still includes a Jacuzzi, bed, and an area with rubber masks, surgical instruments, and anesthesia, where Gadhafi's people checked women for STDs. The documentary will air days before the trial of Gadhafi's sons—one of whom, Saadi Gaddafi, made a statement on state TV the other day, the BBC reports. "I apologize ... for all the harm I've caused and for disturbing the security and stability of Libya," he said.

If there is one source of trusted information it is from a renegade CIA agent

Moammar Gadhafi was a real douchebag. I too would like to know more about the renegade CIA agents who were his paid henchmen.
