Three years later, Osama's mother married al-Attas, after he divorced his father.
Alia Ghanem, the mother of former al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, has opened up for the very first time about various aspects of her son's life from being a shy boy to becoming the global symbol of terrorism.
Ghanem added: "He was a very good child until he met some people, who pretty much brainwashed him in his early 20s". When I was hosted by the Correspondents' Association, of which nearly all of you are members of, you brought a comedian up to attack my appearance and called me a traitor to my own gender.
She disclosed that her son became radicalized during his stay at the King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, where he studied Economics. "At the start, we were very proud of him", he said.
Ghanem said, "He was academically capable". I don't always agree and am often upset with journalists but we are flashing warning lights now that we shouldn't be flashing. "I don't want to go through that again". In a new interview, she questioned why he wanted to "throw it all away".

Instead, Sanders spoke about her own experience of being politely asked to leave from a Virginia restaurant. "We knew all of us were going to face awful consequences".
She also said the Muslim Brotherhood organisation, which her son became involved with while studying, was like a "cult". The fact that bin Laden's beloved mother is an Alawite may help explain why bin Laden never advocated for or fought wars against the Shia, as have other Sunni jihadist groups, such as ISIS.
"We thought everyone was over this". Our family overseas all came back to Saudi.
"If Hamza was in front of me now, I would tell him, "God guide you".
"The Guardian quotes experts as saying that Bin Laden had "deliberately" decided that the majority of the 9/11 attacks that targeted the U.S. in 2001 - and consequently changed the whole world - to be Saudi citizens" as he was "convinced that [this was] going to turn the West against his. home country".
The terror mastermind was with his youngest wife, Amal bin Laden, and their children on the night his hideaway was raided by American SEALs. Think twice about what you are doing. "You are entering frightful parts of your soul.'" said Hassan in a visible gesture of not being aligned with the heir of OBL.
