Just hours after she was arrested at a safe house in Amman Jordan, Sajida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi, the wife of now deceased Ali Hussein Ali al-Shamari, dramatically confessed to her part in the terrorists bombing that took place in Jordan last week. When arrested she still was wearing the bomb that had failed to go off when captured and the bomb had been disarmed for the live confession on TV.

"My husband wore an (explosives-packed) belt and put one on me. He taught me how to use it," said Sajida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi, 35, who appeared on television wearing a white head scarf, black gown and the disabled bomb belt tied around her waist.

Jordanian security forces on Sunday arrested the woman, whose husband is suspected of blowing up the Radisson SAS hotel, after being tipped off by an al-Qaida claim that a husband-and-wife team participated in Wednesday's attacks at three hotels that killed 57 other people.

Looking nervous and wringing her hands, al-Rishawi described the attack on the Radisson. The Grand Hyatt and Days Inn hotels also were bombed.

"My husband detonated (his bomb) and I tried to explode my belt but it wouldn't," she said. "People fled running and I left running with them."

You really have to give the Jordanian officials credit for figuring out who the bombers were that committed theses acts of terrorism so fast, yet I feel that this confession had to been forced out of her by Jordanian Officials.

What surprises me is the fact she still was wearing the bomb days later. My guess is Jordan officials made her put it on for effect.

Now the question is; does she get a fair trial or instant Death?

I bet this woman is going to be an intelligence goldmine. I think this could be a major development in the war, as it's turned local opinion harshly against the terrorists plus this woman who probably knows a hell of a lot about Zarqawi's group.

I think it would be wrong to jump to the conclusion she knows a lot about Zarqawi. You have to remember that normally females are considered 2nd class and they do only what they are told.

Does she know anything? Perhaps, but I would not be so sure at this time.

Well she was the sister of a Zarqawi former top lieutenant who was killed by U.S. forces and married to the other suicide bomber -- she wasn't just some woman off the street. I still think she knows a lot, she was probably traveling around with Zarqawi's gang and knows where they hide out and other important info.

I realize that and hope you are right.

What we do not know at this time is wither she played an active part in the organization and that can only be determined with more interrogation or should I say in this case more then likely torture.

Assuming they will use torture since their laws allow its use, I would not rely on it to be true at all times. Torture me and I will say anything you want
That will not however make what I say true.


Edit to add an example. During the war in 91 were the pilot confessed on Iraqi tv saying one thing while blinking out another message with his eye lids saying he was ordered to say this. Darn that was one smart pilot.

Well if she is known to be associated with Zarqawi then they just gave up their surprise attack by plastering her all over the news. Now Zarqawi knows that they have her in custody and will likely change his plans if there were any.

Does anyone have a video link to the confession? Isn't it great the way they got her to confess so quickly?

Her bomb didn't go off so she ran with everyone else?
What's going on there, huh? Was she afraid of getting
hurt? She was just ready to die for her 'cause'. More
likely she was afraid to see the death and destruction
that she and her husband were bringing down upon
innocent people. I hope the authorities make her look
upon the dead. I hope they make her meet the families
of those killed before she is put to death to meet Allah.

I remain a skeptic. I am not convinced that she is the "real thing" at all.

She's likely a plant, highly paid, to fess up to the world.

Its not a hard thing to do, imho.

Isn't the whole idea of these terrorist cells that they keep there numbers small and know very little about the other cells.

It would be fortunate if she knew a detailed breakdown of the structure of this group but I find that unlikely.

Hypothetically speaking, it could also have been strategically convenient for some other countires if Jordan was forced into action against this particular terrorist, that is if this was an strategic orchestrated event.

I cannot understand why a terrorist would shoot himself in the foot by doing this in his own country, all those that may have supported him....does not make sense.

Its sad really. Once upon a time men made war and the women stayed home to raise the children.

The good thing about it was this woman had a conscience in the end, she saw wedding children and happy people and she couldn't do it. Even despite her ways of total obedience to her husband..... Good on her for thinking for herself and not going through with it.

The only reason she is here now is because hers failed at which time her husband told her to leave.

"My husband detonated (his bomb) and I tried to explode my belt but it wouldn't," she said. "People fled running and I left running with them."

Perhaps and probably so, but consider this: while the US is contemplating restricting interrogation methods, allowing enemy combatant detainees to have legal recourse, while making absolutely sure that their rights have not been violated or they have not been treated inhumanely, Jordanian security is going about business as usual. Where are the Human Rights groups and activists at now? People scream and whine over alleged US torture this and that, reckon' they will be accusing ole' King Abdullah and Jordan of such?

Hardly....
Seems rules and standards are only for a certain select.

At any rate, your are correct: she will be an intelligence goldmine after the Jordanian security people get done talking with her.

Your free to believe whatever you like but Im just wondering is there any evidence to make you think that. Or is it just a feeling you have or something?

Or, how about this: her belt was never meant to explode. Now we think we have a goldmine of info. Maybe we do, but is it disinfo?

(thanks to ? for the original idea)

I think it's likely she was afraid to take the belt off herself for fear of it detonating. Yeah she was willing to die in the mission alongside her husband, but it's not so easy to do all by yourself for nothing. And if she wasn't able to detonate it correctly, she was probably not able to take it off correctly either.

That may well be true, however at the time she was on TV they had disarmed the bomb therefore there is only one possible explanation for having it on; Jordanian officials wanted to use it for an effect.
