This is so sad to be forced into a marriage with such a monster, and then punished for the unmentionable things that he made them do.

He made them help him ruin lives. C'mon dude, everyone knows Bin Laden was psycho. He forced innocent people to do his dirty work, either by manipulation or by fear. In this case, it was fear. Sources say many of the marriages were forced too.

You've talked to soldiers who bumped into "bin Laden" and family?

Do you have a link to any NPR, BBC, or other news about bin Laden's marital issues and associated "unmentionables"?

I've spent the last few years on a deserted isle. Help me out here.

Did they ever release photographic or video evidence or recover a body? Can you provide a link, if so?

How about those Navy Seals. We're getting our money's worth there. They broke into Osama bin Laden's compound with 12-foot walls topped by barbed wire, and fired a warning shot into his head. Then Bin Laden was buried at sea because… deep down… he’s a nice person!!! Now they say now that Mullah Omar is living out of his car. You know things are not going well for the jihad when your Supreme Leader is living in his Toyota. They thought he was dead but found out he just purchased a new Toyota Home!!

"Information Operations" are a type of military operation. So are "psychological operations." To take the words of a Pentagon spokesperson as fact without substantiating evidence is to potentially become a casualty in information battle space.

Pretty much. It's not that hard to believe, they are a large family with dictatorship power in a small country...not hard to do as a military officer.

Nope
