While the killing of Moammar Gadhafi today in Sirte begins a new chapter for the free Libyan people, it's also a particularly opportune time to look back at the tyrant's cruel and bizarre 42-year rule. Foreign Policy presents an exclusive collection of never-before-seen pictures and documents from Gadhafi's private homes and state intelligence ministries — collected and re-photographed by Human Rights Watch emergencies director Peter Bouckaert and freelance photojournalist Michael Brown. The pictures below represent just a fraction of the 1,000-plus photographs and documents — from meetings with heads of state to private snapshots with the family — that we'll be adding to our online archive.
