    Nine months after the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Pakistan is still holding the al-Qaeda founder's wives and children, McClatchy Newspapers reports.

    Bin Laden's youngest wife, Amal al-Sadah, still cannot walk from the gunshot wound to a knee suffered while apparently trying to shield her husband from Navy SEALs, said her brother, Zakaria Ahmad al-Sadah, who has appealed to Pakistan's chief justice for their release.

    He also told McClatchy his sister's five children were in poor mental health and had not been schooled since being taken into custody after the May 2 raid at bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad.

    As a "last resort," al-Sadah said, he asked Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry to let his sister and her children return to Yemen.

    They and two other wives and four other children -- al-Sadah identified them as bin Laden's grandchildren -- were being kept under de facto house arrest in a small Islamabad apartment guarded by Pakistani security forces, he said.

    It is required so that Pakistan can milk the Laden family as ransom to keep them safe and for upkeep.

    I am sure we all know how cash strapped Pakistan is!

    Pakistan is looking for prospective terrorists grooms to marry off his wife and order them to produce Laden 2.
