Porn found in Osama bin Laden compound
Huge smut cache stashed in bedroom
Osama bin Laden's compound may not have had phone or internet service, but it did have porn. Lots of it.
According to Reuters and ABC News, the massive smut stash was seized by the US commandos who stormed his Abbottabad, Pakistan, hideout and shot him in the face almost two weeks ago. It was found in a wooden box in bin Laden's bedroom and was referred to as “huge” and “extensive” by officials.
There's no direct evidence that the electronically recorded videos were viewed by the al Qaeda chief, but that's certainly not out of the realm of possibility. Other video recovered by Navy Seals showed bin Laden sitting on a floor watching himself on TV, so there's reason to believe he had the ability to view video.
The porn is part of what officials said is a trove of information taken during the 38-minute siege two weekends ago. Electronic and handwritten materials detailed al Qaeda terrorist plots, which are said to have included the assassination of US President Obama and strikes on water utilities and railroads. Intelligence officials have learned more about the radical Islamist group in the past 10 days than in the previous 10 years combined, ABC News said.
So was it...
Soft porn - women with their eyes visible
Hard porn- women with their faces visible
Extreme porn - women with their whole heads uncovered
Finding porn has been predicted
given the religious views of his followers this is probably one of the most damaging things to al Qaeda morale that they could find, guaranteed to turn the greatest number of his followers away from the cause.
This is why I take this announcement with a huge shovel full of salt. I am not saying that it was definitely not there but that if it wasn't then its existance is something that the USA analysts would/should invent to support their cause.
Nothing to do with religion
Muhammed Atta (the 9/11 pilot) was motivated by a US/Israeli bombing mission that killed civilians in Lebanon. The sooner we let go of the idea that we are being attacked for irrational religious reasons, and realize it's because we bomb and occupy middle eastern countries and kill countless of their civilians, the sooner we can resolve the "war on terrorism."
