‘White Widow’ wrote bin Laden poem


The British woman known as the “White Widow” and wanted for alleged terrorist offenses in Kenya wrote an ode to late al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden, proclaiming her love for him, a report said Tuesday. Samantha Lewthwaite’s clumsy poem, littered with spelling errors, was found by British police investigators after they examined a computer hard drive found at a house in the Kenyan town of Mombasa, Britain’s Sky News television said.

“Oh sheik osama my father, my brother / My love for you is like no other / Oh Sheik Osama now that you are gone / The muslims must wake up they must be strong,” it begins.
