The previous thread on this topic was shut down before any serious discussion could take place.

Remember when Dick Cheney's daughter came out of the closet? Everyone was all "Hey, the right-wing bigot asshole, who's against equal rights for gays, has a gay daughter himself!!! How does he reconcile military policies, etc etc..."

So now we have Bin Laden's niece, all dolled up a la Western fashion. Remember, he's the one who wants to turn the clock back to the glorious period of 650AD. Does this indicate:

1 - His vision thing has no hope of success if his own family won't support it;or

2 - She's her own woman?Babble

Clearly she's a woman on her own and I would imagine, as a person with a conscience, she is doing everything in her power to distance herself from him. I mean, this family is huge. They all can't be held accountable for the actions of one guy.

This isn't news. I guess I'll move it to "culture" since it's kind of about celebrity pop culture.
