Pakistani intel interrogator: Osama's wives gave little away

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)-- Even after his death, Osama bin Laden's three wives remained faithful to their terrorist spouse and gave little away when they were questioned after the al-Qaida head was killed in a US raid more than a year ago, according to a Pakistani intelligence agent who interrogated them.

UBL's wives were arrested by Pakistan's security forces after US special forces successfully raided their husband's safe house in Abbottabad.

According to the Pakistani Christian Post, the intel agent said he struggled to glean any worthwhile information from UBL's wives: Yemeni-born Amal al Sadeh, the youngest of the three, expressed outrage at being interrogated while UBLs other wives, all Saudi subjects, kept quiet behind their veils.

"The other wives didn't say much," said the agent, but "they were all nostalgic whenever they talked about him.

"I could sense Amal was always angry whenever I spoke with her. She objected to being questioned and rarely gave away anything."

Although defiant, sometimes the youngest of UBLs wives would let slip a snippet of intimate information.

"Amal once told me that she and bin Laden liked Che Guevara. She seemed like a rebel so I questioned her about Latin American leftists ..."

Ernesto "Che" Guevara was a Marxist who, like UBL, was killed in a gunfight with government troops; since his death in 1967, Che has become the cult icon of many young revolutionaries.

Amal, who was wounded in the raid, married UBL when she was 18 years old and he was in his 40s, according to a 2011 Reuters interview with her father.
