9/24: Young bin Laden



Thanks |> /\ \/ @ for this image from the UK's Sun (think Daily News tabloid-style paper). Their caption:

THE smiling lad ringed in our picture looks like he doesn't have a care in the world as he poses with 22 of his brothers and sisters.

But the 14-year-old is Osama bin Laden - and within a few years the grinning schoolboy was on his way to becoming the world's most cold-hearted mass murderer. The bin Laden children lined up next to a pink Chrysler Imperial for this snapshot on a trip to Falun, Sweden, in 1971.

The holiday was paid for by their father Mohammed, a billionaire building tycoon. Osama inherited a fortune when his dad died soon afterwards - and used it to build a worldwide network of terror.

His family disowned him in 1994. He also lost Saudi citizenship that year. My guess is, they don't keep in touch.

And, uhm... Second post!

OK I can't stop looking at their noses. They all have the same nose except the mother and a few of the kids. This sorta reminds me of that Polygamy post.

Watch out with talk like that... next someone in texas will sugest we identify potential terrorists by this trait and arrest anyone matching the description!
