Real wives of Abbottabad: OBL's older wives think the hot, young Yemeni one tipped off the US

Ok, the “hot” part gets a very elastic definition here. Something has to be behind all this raging bin Laden clan jealousy:

The three widows of Osama bin Laden are turning on each other in custody, with two older Saudi women blaming a much younger Yemeni wife for leading American intelligence to their hideout.

“It’s vicious,” said a Pakistani official briefed on the interrogation of the widows. “The older wives think the younger one tipped off the Americans or was tracked when she came to join him.” …

“It’s a well-known fact that when you have two older wives and then this young one comes along half their age, they don’t like it,” said one.

Spending several years on end holed up in Pakistan with a bunch of argumentative, sharia-fundy wives is no way to go through life, even for the world’s most hunted terrorist. That circumstance has given rise to a local joke.

“The joke in Pakistan is that Bin Laden called in his location to CIA because he was being driven mad cooped up for five years with so many wives and children,” said Rehman Malik, Pakistan’s interior minister.

It’s a pretty good joke, but the predicament would help explain the porn stash.
