American woman: I was married to al-Qaida

Dec. 23, 2004 at 3:10 PM

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- A Southern California woman says an al-Qaida operative married her to establish a terrorist sleeper cell from their Orange County apartment building.

"I was just a stepping stone to a green card. I married a terrorist. I married somebody who did not like America, who didn't like Americans," Saraah Olson told ABC News.

Olson claims her ex-husband, Hisham Diab, was involved in recruiting Adam Gadahn, a local teen, to become the fanatic who appeared in a video released in Pakistan in October, promising that the "streets of America will run red with blood."

ABC Correspondent Brian Ross's interview with Olson airs tonight at 10 p.m.
