Porn Stash Found In Bin Laden Compound

Among the items recovered by SEAL Team Six from Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound was, apparently, an extensive collection of pornography:

(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.

Hilarious, absolutely hilarious

    I’m sure porn is kosher so long as the prophet has black tape over his eyes.

    This is not enough information to go on. I think we need detail that will flesh (heh) out his character. I mean, what kind of porn? Babysitter? MILF? Nuns? Was he a boob guy or an ass man?

    I think Republicans should demand the release of all this data. And pictures. If we don’t the terrorists win.

    I simply cannot BELIEVE that the PR clowns in the Obama Administration are leaking this type of intelligence just to keep spiking the football….

    Letting Muslims know that OBL was into porn is a good way to discredit him. “I simply cannot BELIEVE” that you don’t see the usefulness of this.

    jukeboxgrad,

    I won’t speak for Alex, but I’m pretty damned sure that was sarcasm.

  11. Southern Hoosier says:

    Muslims are big into children marriages. I wonder if it was kiddie porn? Maybe bin Laden was shopping for an even younger wife?

  12. jukeboxgrad says:

    mantis, I bet you’re right. Sorry, Alex, my mistake.

    I’m waiting for Comrade Obama to have a big White House dinner for the Seals and their families, with the press invited.

    The administration isn’t “spiking the football”. They are “dancing in the endzone”.

    we all know george bush is the real mastermind of 911 ask bill cooper oh i forgot they murdered him.this sounds like a lot of nonsense to take away from the fact there is no evidence that can ever prove we had him(i dont buy the sea burial nonsense he is buried in suadi arabia somewhere) this is all spoon fed propoganda from a corrupt gov that cannot be trusted . good day fellow americans

    Haven’t we learned anything, people?

    Never speak in the possessive when regarding such sensitive materials!

    It’s never “your porn” or “his porn” or “her porn.” It’s always “the porn.”

    Lies, all lies. Western propaganda. First they said bin Laden used his wife as a “human shield” and that turned out to be bullshit. Now they’re saying he had porn? No way. Even if there was porn at the compound, there’s no evidence that it was bin Laden’s. Of all the people living at the compound, bin Laden was the LEAST likely out of all of them to use porn. It doesn’t make any sense.

    America obviously wants radical Muslims to lose respect for bin Laden by portraying him as a lascivious hypocrite. And it’s an easy lie to make up; if someone demands to actually SEE the porn in question, you can just show them any old porn and say “There, that’s bin Laden’s porn!”. Such an easy and effective lie.
