Finally: Bin Laden's matchmaker speaks

The cleric, Sheikh Rashad, told ABC News he helped arrange 54-year-old bin Laden’s marriage to Yemeni 29-year-old Amal Ahmed Abdul Fatah when the girl was just a teen. During the marriage, Rashad said Fatah never complained and never made the al Qaeda leader upset.

Manal Omar, author of “Barefoot in Baghdad” and expert on the role of women in Islam, said that Fatah, along with the other two older wives also discovered in bin Laden’s compound, would be called to do almost anything bin Laden wanted.

“Fulfilling the desires of the male leader or husband in the family is a very important duty for women,” Omar said.
