One of the few facts that had not been discussed in depth was the terrorist leader’s way of life, since few details have been revealed after his death, but among those that stand out are how he came to live in the safe house he built for himself and his family in the years after the attack and what he came to see as the correct way to deal with polygamy.

“I don’t understand why people take only one wife,” were Osama bin Laden’s words, in what was the closest he came to a lighthearted joke. “If you take four wives, you live like a boyfriend,” he declared at the time, what would remain for later and which would be preserved in the writings on the man.

It was after the September 11 attack that it killed 2,977, causing Osama’s family to flee in search of new shelters so that none were deliberately linked to the terrorist, so it was a while before they met again with Osama. the family patriarch, meanwhile, had his own plans.

According to information from the New York Post, the man founded al Qaeda to wage a holy war in the West, hiding in the Afghan mountains and in northern Pakistan to evade justice. But in 2004, when the United States got bogged down in nation-building efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq, bin Laden felt the heat of the persecution dissipate.

It didn’t take long for him to want his family together, so he ended up ordering his bodyguards, Ibrahim Saeed Ahmed and abd al-Hamid, to buy a piece of land, as well as hiring an architect and building a fortress large enough to house the woman. family he intended to reunite in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

The bodyguard of the terrorist, bought the real estate for $ 50,000 dollars in his own name and designed a house, according to the specifications of his boss. The three-story main house had four bedrooms on the first floor and four more on the second, each with its own bathroom. The upper floor contained a bedroom, bathroom, study, and terrace for bin Laden’s use.

In 2005, it was when the family members began to move into the new home that the family patriarch had built, although they had rules to follow, such as not going out without company and the only person who broke the agreement. It was his third wife, who had to leave home to give birth; but it was an oversight on the part of his bodyguard that led to that suspicious home.

According to information from New York Post, the property had many unusual features that made CIA analysts take notice. In the first place, it had no telephone lines or Internet service, despite the fact that whoever built it was surely rich enough to pay for those needs, so the agents did not take their eyes off, noting even the most unusual details to know who. it was the person who lived in that place.

According to the media, the final clue that managed to find Osama’s whereabouts were the clotheslines in the compound, which were shaken every day with women’s clothes, the shalwar kameez that Pakistani men wear, clothes and diapers to children, much more than the 11 members of the bodyguard’s families could use.

According to the laundry calculations that the agents made, they had to include an adult man, several adult women and at least nine children, a perfect fit for the polygamous patriarch they were looking for and who would soon confirm that it was the same subject they had been following for years, for what was never expected that nine years spent in hiding, Osama bin Laden would be discovered by the clothes of his family.

It was on December 14, 2010, when the CIA evidence was presented to then-President Barack Obama, since although they were not reliable evidence about Bin Laden, they were enough to have an idea about where the leader of Al Qaeda would be, and they would not waste the golden opportunity that was being presented to them to be able to obtain the head of the terrorist.

Obama was convinced of the evidence presented, it was for this reason that he ordered the United States Navy to begin planning the operation that would finally, on May 1, 2011, extinguish the master of terror at the age of 54, a decision which might never have been taken if Osama bin Laden had thought of giving his wives a clothes dryer.
