Bin Laden's widows expected to be charged in Pakistan

Three widows of Osama bin Laden are expected to be charged Monday with living illegally in Pakistan, an offense that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

The three women - identified by U.S. and Pakistani officials as Amal Ahmed Abdul Fateh, Khairiah Sabar and Siham Sabar - have been in Pakistani custody since U.S. Navy SEALs raided bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad and killed the al Qaeda leader in May 2011.

Pakistani authorities have started legal proceedings against the widows, alleging forgery and illegal entrance into Pakistan. The charges are expected to be filed Monday, said a source familiar with the widows' case.

The source said the Yemeni government has expressed readiness to let Fateh, bin Laden's youngest widow, return home. Saudi Arabia, where the other two women are from, has been more resistant.

    ...in fact, when the Apostle Paul was away on a missionary tour, he left young Timothy in charge. Timothy was no Paul, and so the old gossipy church ladies began standing up in church and speaking pure bs, and giving Timothy fits, possibly even trying to get in his pants. And so Paul ordered Timothy to stop drinking water, and drink nothing but wine until he got back to deal with the gossips. Paul returned and bannished women from being speakers in the church. Many are the men who take a swig of booze to ease the pain caused by his old ladies piehole.
