Navy SEALs Confiscate Hard Drives and Thumb Drives From Osama Bin Laden’s Compound

Posted May 3, 2011

The Navy SEALs have confiscated computer drives and disks when they raided Osama bin Laden’s compound. A U.S. official called this data “the mother lode of intelligence.”

“They cleaned it out,? stated an official. ?Can you imagine what?s on Osama bin Laden?s hard drive?? The material is being looked through at a secret location in Afghanistan. Hundreds of people are going through the data right now.

?It?s going to be great even if only 10 percent of it is actionable,? stated another official. The Navy SEALs entered the compound where bin Laden was sleeping. The encounter had only lasted a few seconds. Osama bin Laden was killed with a shot to the face. The assassination was gruesome and officials are debating whether to release any of the photos.
