So who is this woman?

A fruitcake, apparently.

Ahh, female nudity, then.

Osama sings to Kola. Kola sings to Osama. Perhaps they will do other dangerous things together. They may eat lamb or stroke each other. They may chant of their difficulties and their happiness. They have love but they also have typewriters.

That is interesting.

Is it just me or does she look vaguely dragqueeny? sort of like RuPaul after a week camping in Death Valley?

I wanted to be the Binners love slave too, but even the voices thought it was a stupid idea.

I too am skeptical that so-called 'beer massages' on livestock should have any effect on meat's flavor. That said I can't argue with the well-marbled and tender final product.

You're thinking Kola Boof Jerky. A common mistake.

Peter Bergen and none of these know-it-all white men know a damned thing about where Osama was...if they did...the U.S. government would have been able to find Osama back in 1996.

you have to admit she has a point.

Kola Boof claims she was a successful actress in the Arabic-speaking world, an active member of the Sudanese People's Liberation Army and, most notably, Bin Laden's mistress.

I often run into people like this when I go out drinking.

Like the scientologist truckdriver.

Like the guy who was David Gilmour's personal chef.

Like, well . . . you get the picture.

"In late 1995, I was living with a roommate at the Essauira Sofitel Thalassa (it's on the corner of Ejema El Fna, I believe) in Marrakech."

O RLY? Funny, since the Sofitel Thalassa is actually IN Essaouira, two hours west of Marrakech - and wasn't even built until 2000. And the Djemma El Fna is not a traditional square, and therefore has no "corners."

If she was ever in Marrakech, it was on a street corner with the rest of the whores.

She stalked a friend of mine. She's fucken insane.

goodnewsfortheinsane, Your post really blew my mind. I read the links thoroughly. It's a compelling and fascinating story. I believe this woman is telling the truth about her experiences with Osama Bin Laden, with the press and about her life. Thanks for the excellent collection of links and YouTube videos.

Looking it up, there is a Sofitel Marrakech..."at the foot of the High Atlas mountains, close to the walls of the medina and Jama el Fna square." But it's not the Essauira Sofitel Thalassa.

youarenothere, are you joking or for real about that?

The Sofitel Marrakech was built in 2002, and it's a taxi ride away from the Djemma el Fna.

She's a liar.

She's a liar.

Yup, now I think you're right Liosliath. She lied about the Sofitel's location and date. Been thinking about Kola Boof since yesterday after reading this post and as time's gone by I've been increasingly troubled by the way she refers to herself in the third person, saying "Kola Boof says", instead of "I say". The only people I know who often do that are pathological narcissists, who are pathological liars. Their lying can be very convincing.

Yeah, other things she mentions about Marrakech ring false as well. Are there lots of Saudis in Morocco, sure. Do they utilize the services of local prostitutes, you bet. She could have met him, who knows - the best lies have a grain of truth, anyway.

Pity she doesn't have an "evidence" that could help someone build a case for the invasion of a country, she could get a cool job that way.

And now you've got me thinking of it too!

Now I'll have to stop at Vijay's Indian Buffet on the way home for a big plateful, on basmati rice with garlic naan on the side.

Oh, and a bottle of Kingfisher.

youarenothere -- Did she stalk your friend online, or in person? I know a guy who dated her. Says after he called it off, she waited outside his apartment and followed him to work.

Or maybe she's a football player? ;)
