Bin Laden and AQ Khan to join Arab language version of “The View”

Al Qaeda Terrorist leader and former nuclear weapons scientist AQ Khan, long sought by intelligence services in the United States for their role in large scale plots against Western targets, are set to co-chair a segment of an Arab language chat show called “Al Aya,” patterned after CBS’s “The View” on Al Jazeera television this month.  Bin Laden will be talking about how exercise has helped him deal with stress that goes along with many years of eluding capture by his pursuers, and Khan will discuss new herbs and chemical peels that women in his village are using for maintaining skin health. 

Bin Laden has been increasingly popular in recent years in the Muslim world after the success of his latest exercise video, “Sweating to the Oldies.”  He and Khan are expected to be part of a regular segment of “Al Aya” devoted to issues of health and faith.

Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf has tried reassure Western leaders that the pair have agreed to keep hate-filled inflammatory rhetoric to an absolute minimum.
