Osama Used Young Wife As Human Shield In Final Moments

Chivalry, like Osama bin Laden, is dead:


Osama bin Laden used one of his wives as a human shield during the firefight with U.S. forces at the compound in Pakistan where he was killed, the White House’s counterterrorism chief said Monday.

In a briefing with reporters Monday at the White House, Mr. Brennan said one of bin Laden’s wives was used as a human shield to protect the al Qaeda founder. Both were killed in a shootout, and bin Laden was later buried at sea.


“Here is bin Laden, who has been calling for these attacks, living in this million-dollar-plus compound, living in an area that is far removed from the front, hiding behind women who were put in front of him as a shield,” he told reporters. “I think it really just speaks to just how false his narrative has been over the years.”



Sick, selfish, misogynistic, and craven to the bitter end.  Given the opportunity to die a "glorious" martyr's death -- a fate to which he'd merrily condemned countless zealots through the years -- bin Laden was so terrified that he used his youngest wife to shield himself from our Seals' bullets.
