who can say for sure, really?

From the autobiography of Kola Boof:

Osama kept coming back to Whitney Houston. He asked if I knew her personally when I lived in America. I told him I didn't. He said that he had a paramount desire for Whitney Houston, and although he claimed music was evil, he spoke of someday spending vast amounts of money to go to America and try to arrange a meeting with the superstar. It didn't seem impossible to me. He said he wanted to give Whitney Houston a mansion that he owned in a suburb of Khartoum. He explained to me that to possess Whitney he would be willing to break his color rule and make her one of his wives. I tried to hide my outrage at his racist remarks, but it would come to pass that for the entire time that I would be trapped in his palm, Whitney Houston's was the one name that would be mentioned constantly. How beautiful she is, what a nice smile she has, how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and her husband--Bobby Brown, whom Osama talked about having killed, as if it were normal to have women's husbands killed. In his briefcase I would come across photographs of the star, as well as copies of Playboy, but nobody in the West believes me when I tell them this. It's like they have this totally bogus image of Osama bin Laden. Anyway, it would soon come to the point where I was sick of hearing Whitney Houston's name. [full excerpt from harpers.org]

The greatest love of all is inside of her.
In case you didn't click for the excerpt, I'll fill you in on the rest. Boof tells about all of the romantic letters that Osama wrote to Whitney and about how he knew that she shared his feelings when she turned one of his letters into the song, "You Give Good Love".
This could be an epidemic though because there are others who share his obsession with her.
Both Bushes loves her, Saddam loves her...back in the day Gorby had a thing for her too.
She's irresistable.

i have to say, kola boof seems like such an attention seeker that i am very very skeptical about this story .
