CIA bomber's widow: 'We were sharing our views with each other'

CNN's Nic Robertson sat down with Defne Bayrak  for an in-depth interview to talk to the widow about Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi - a Jordanian doctor identified as a suicide bomber in an attack that left seven CIA operatives dead in Afghanistan.

From her response to questions of how she met her husband to the reaction to the news of her husband's actions - Bayrak reveals what life has been like for her. Shortly after the attacks, she  said she was shocked by her husband's  actions but "proud" of what he did, stirring outrage in some.

What more does she have to say? Read and watch more from CNN's Nic Robertson's interview

    What this person committed is a mass murder. Its nothing to be proud of.The American media is doing a huge disservice to us ( the american people) by painting all muslims as radicals...there are over 7 million muslims in U.S. The majority are peace loving , law abiding citizens who are a positive influence in their communities. there is a small percentage who have hijacked Islam and are defaming it. Media unfortunately focuses on sensationalism and thus it paints all muslims with the term terrorist. That is unjust & unfair at all levels. If you all like to watch real news with journalism beyond excellence then watch link TV !!!

    This is incredible: "...she said she was shocked by her husband's actions but "proud" of what he did, stirring outrage in some." SOME? Only SOME people were outraged by her being proud of what her husband did? So much for the "tiny minority of extremists"! It looks like the minority are those who were outraged.
