Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, has revealed details of the post-9/11 fallout within the White House, her clashes with vice president Dick Cheney, and her thoughts on former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

In her book, No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years In Washington, Rice tells how she repeatedly clashed with Cheney over what to do with what she referred to as captured terrorism suspects.

She calls Cheney's staff, "very much of one ultra-hawkish mind", as per excerpts from her book doing the rounds in media.

She also writes that Gaddafi wanted to meet her in his tent but she refused and in the end they met at his formal residence in Tripoli.
