"Osama has al-ways had a strong sex drive, which he's tried mightily to repress," revealed a high-level Saudi intelligence source. "When he took to the mountains without a woman in sight, surrounded by nothing but goats and barren wilderness, he obviously intended to abstain from sex -- as he ordered his fighters to do.
"But obviously, he lacked the willpower to remain completely celibate," said the Saudi official.
The captured Al Qaeda fighters told CIA debriefers that bin Laden showed a softer, gentler side when he was with Naomi.
"Once I saw him kiss her on the lips and call her by a pet name that means 'Angel Face,'" one prisoner reportedly said. "He would spend hours grooming her while humming old love songs."
But bin Laden's lovey-dovey attitude changed in a hurry when Naomi was caught "cheating" on him.
"When Osama learned of Naomi's betrayal, his heart hardened," the prisoner went on. "And after he had her shot, he showed no emotion when we had her for dinner."
Bin Laden's former followers told the CIA that while the leader's outlandish behavior was common knowledge, they were forbidden to speak of it.
They said one man mysteriously vanished from the camp after he joked about bin Laden "catching hoof-and-mouth disease" from his unusual consort. His body turned up days later, riddled with bullets.
The CIA source said bin Laden had every reason for enforcing a code of silence.
"He knew that if he were exposed, he'd lose all credibility among his fanatically devout Muslim followers," said the CIA source. "He could even be stoned to death for committing an act that, according to the strict laws of Islam, is an abomination."
