Ankara: The wife of the suspected Jordanian double agent who killed seven CIA officers in Afghanistan says her husband considered the United States as an adversary.
Defne Bayrak, the Turkish wife of Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, told Turkish media today she was shocked at the news that her husband blew himself up at a base in Afghanistan on December 30, killing himself and the officers.
Bayrak, who lives in Istanbul, said al-Balawi had plans to become a specialist in surgery in Turkey.
Bayrak told private CNN-Turk television that while in Jordan her husband wrote articles for Jihad Web sites, in which the United States is considered an adversary.
Bayrak says she doubts that her husband worked as a double-agent for the CIA and Jordan's spy service.
