WTF? Seriously, I Mean It, WTF? — Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of terror group al-Qaeda, was such a fan of singer Whitney Houston that he considered marriage and having her husband Bobby Brown killed. … Sudanese poet and novelist Kola Boof, who says she was kept against her will as Bin Laden's mistress for four months in 1996, makes the revelation in her new autobiography [Diary of a Lost Girl] … "He told me Whitney was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen. He said that he had a paramount desire for her and although he claimed music was evil, he spoke of someday spending vast amounts of money to go to America and try to arrange a meeting. … He said he wanted to give her a mansion he owned in a suburb of Khartoum. He would say how beautiful she is, what a nice smile she has, how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and by her husband – Bobby Brown, whom Osama talked about having killed, as if it were normal to have women's husbands killed… He explained to me that to possess Whitney, he would be willing to break his colour rule and make her one of his wives." Boof claims Bin Laden raped her and kept her prisoner in a hotel in Morocco. She has previously said she had to take her son out of a school in Los Angeles after rumours circulated that his father was the al-Qaeda mastermind. In her autobiography she reckons Bin Laden also had a taste for Western literature. "In his briefcase I would come across photographs of the Star magazine, as well as copies of Playboy," she wrote. He would also "ramble on" about his favourite TV shows "Miami Vice", "The Wonder Years" and "MacGyver", she claimed.

The woman sounds like a complete loon; but if it's true, how do we use that to our advantage? Collapse )
