Globe (May 30, 2011) continues in the fine tabloid tradition of labeling every famous monster gay. I remember clearly that the 9/11 hijackers were said to have gone to a gay strip bar and to have been gay, now Osama bin Laden was gay. He just had the five wives to "hide his lust for men."
An aide to a congressman is anonymously quoted as saying of a meeting he had with bin Laden in the late '80s:
"He was introduced to me as 'Tim Osman,' which was the name the CIA had assigned him. He had short hair, was clean-shaven and dressed in khaki cargo pants and a Polo sweater. He was traveling on a Turkish passport. We met to discuss the selling of U.S. Stinger anti-aircraft missiles to Afghanistan. Afterward, I took him to a restaurant where we shared a booth. His leg rubbed against mine, but I figured it was because he was so tall. When it happened a few times, I began to get the feeling he was hitting on me. Then he wet his lips and batted his eyelashes—and there was no doubt what he was after."
The source goes on to say bin Laden asked where to find the Ripcord Club, "Houston's infamous leather boy disco."
