CIA Bomber’s Family ‘Proud’ Of His Murders
January 7, 2010
Jordan (ChattahBox) – The wife of the suicide bomber who killed eight people in Afghanistan last week has spoken out about her pride in her husband’s actions.
Defne Bayrak, the wife of Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, the suicide bomber that killed seven CIA agents and a Jordanian security agent, said she and the family are supportive of his death.
”I am proud of him; my husband has carried out a great operation in such a war. May God accept his martyrdom,” she was quoted as saying.
”He had so much hatred for the United States that he could not have been an agent for the CIA. He might have used Americans and Jordan for his own interest, which he did.”
Balawi was well known for writing on Jihad and pro-extremist forums and message boards, which first caught the attention of authorities last year.
”They were about 20 men from the Jordanian intelligence, they raided our home late at night on Jan. 19,” Bayrak described of the night they arrested Balawi.
“They only searched our house randomly, they did not search it in detail. They took away my husband and seized his computer because my husband was writing on Jihad forums.”
She also described finding out about his attack, and the deaths of those he murdered.
”My first reaction was mixed, there was a different voice on the other end, he mentioned the attack and extended his condolences. One of my daughters was standing next to me and I had to pretend nothing important happened. He said he would send his last wish and a letter to me.”
