Surprise,surprise : A fairly extensive collection of porn found at the Bin Ladin House.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A stash of pornography was found in the hideout of Osama bin Laden by the U.S. commandos who killed him, current and former U.S. officials said on Friday.
The pornography recovered in bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive, according to the officials, who discussed the discovery with Reuters on condition of anonymity.
The officials 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 materials.
Reports from Abbottabad have said that bin Laden's compound was cut off from the Internet or other hard-wired communications 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.
14. Like, maybe an Elvis concert video, or a women showing their faces?
I wonder by whose definition the findings, if there were any, were "porn." We Americans can't decide among ourselves what "porn" is, and to narrow it down even further, we progressives can't decide among ourselves what porn is. And then there is the political advantage of US forces having (alledgedly) found "porn" at ObL's compound. Color me skeptical, but it just seems awfully convenient.
15. sure. all evil villains use porn, we already know that.
