Following are excerpts
from an interview with Dafna Bayraq, the wife of suicide bomber
Humam Al-Bluwi, who carried out the December 30, 2009 attack
on a CIA base in Khost, Afghanistan. Seven CIA officials and a Jordanian
intelligence officer were killed in the attack. The interview aired
on Al-Jazeera TV on January 13, 2010.

on every collaborator with America and Israel. They are all responsible
for this operation and for every operation carried out by the mujahideen.

our homes and our holy places on a daily basis, and tortures our people
I did not sense that
he was connected to the intelligence agencies, but I expect... He definitely
was connected to them, but this was a deception, because my husband
loved Jihad very much. For many years, ever since the Iraq war, he wanted
to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah. There is no way he could have been
an intelligence collaborator.
