New York Times Revises Headline Declaring Bin Laden Was a ‘Devoted Family Man’

The New York Times was quick to change the headline of a book review that called Osama bin Laden a family man.

The title of the book review was changed to “A Fuller Picture of Osama Bin Laden’s Life.”

Robert O’Neill, the Navy SEAL who claims to be the sole person who killed bin Laden in the raid of his compound in Pakistan, responded to the headlines saying “Family man. He used his wife as a human shield. Lucky for me he was taller than her.”

Dan Crenshaw, another former Navy SEAL and Republican congressman from Texas had something similar to say as O‘Neill.

In the book review, it was mentioned that bin Laden was an Islamic fundamentalist by age 16, and a year later, married his 15 year old cousin. He had five wives, aged between 28 and 35 years old and 24 children at the time he died, according to the book reviewer.
