CIA Bin Laden Files Reveal Collusion with Iran, Muslim Brotherhood Inspiration


The CIA has finally published much of the previously unreleased data taken from al-Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden’s computer during the 2011 raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Among the most interesting revelations are details of Iran’s collusion with al-Qaeda and bin Laden’s citation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a formative influence on his political thought.

Some of the revelations are darkly amusing, such as evidence that one of history’s greatest monsters might have been an avid video game player, anime fan, and consumer of online pornography in his hideout. He also seems to have been interested in viral YouTube videos and crackpot conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks. The CIA said some of this material was not previously released because it includes bootleg copies of copyrighted material.

A reasonable caveat to keep in mind is that all of this data was pulled from bin Laden’s networkso it was not necessarily his personal game collection or porn stash. That might throw some cold water on the dreams of gamers who hope they blew bin Laden away a few times in Counter-Strike matches.
