Pornography found in bin Ladenâ€™s hideout
US Navy SEALS discovered an extensive collection of pornography
inside the secret hideout of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden during the
raid that killed the world's most wanted terrorist, according to a
report by the Reuters news agency.
Reuters said current and former US officials disclosed that the
pornography found in the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of
"modern, electronically recorded video."
The officials were not sure if bin Laden had personally obtained the
porn or whether he had viewed the videos.
The officials, who discussed the discovery with Reuters on condition
of anonymity, said they were not yet sure precisely where in the
compound the pornography was discovered or who had been viewing it.
Specifically, the officials said they did not know if bin Laden himself
had acquired or viewed the extensive collection.
Reports from Abbottabad have said that bin Laden's compound was cut
off from the Internet and other hard-wired communication networks. It is
unclear how compound residents would have acquired the pornography.
But a video released by the Obama administration confiscated from the
compound showed bin Laden watching pictures of himself on a TV screen,
indicating that the compound was equipped with video playback equipment
