It seems some of our most beloved Middle-eastern dictators penned a few novels before their untimely demises. Momar Khaddafi had written a romance novel before his beating by his own people and his buddy Saddam Hussein before his capture had written four romance (!) novels and had finished another in his prison cell before his execution.
One of the books had been made into a twenty part television series for his captive audience in pre-Shock And Awe Iraq. Now we have learned that the latest poster boy, Osama bin Laden, not to be outdone by his counterparts, had also been burning the midnight cave oil to get his name in print and not just on video.
Let’s take a look at these potential bestsellers that are sure to take the Afghani reading public by storm as soon as such a thing as a book store is opened in Afghanistan:
