Report: CIA arranged bride for Awlaki in plot to kill him

In the case of the terrorist bride, the purported CIA double agent, Morten Storm, a Danish convert to Islam, provided the newspaper with “proposal” videos and e-mail texts he says al Awlaki exchanged with the woman, a 32-year old Croatian named Aminah who said she was an admirer of al Awlaki…

The report says the plot failed when the woman reached Yemen but was told by al Awlaki’s aides to abandon her suitcase which had been bugged with tracking devices by the CIA without her knowledge.

Storm told the newspaper, “both of them would be killed in an American drone strike” if the CIA plan had succeeded…

Storm says even though the CIA plot failed, the marriage was a success.

Following al Awlaki’s killing last year, Storm says the young woman wrote him to say she wanted to go on a suicide mission to avenge her husband’s death but that al Qaeda leaders had decided against it.
