“Extensive” Porn Stash Found in Bin Laden’s Hideout

A stash of pornographic videos was found in the Abbottabad, Pakistan compound where Osama bin Laden was hiding out before he was assassinated by US Navy SEALS, Reuters reports. Unnamed US officials say the collection is “fairly extensive,” although they are not sure exactly where in the compound the stash was found or if it belonged to bin Laden himself.

If the X-rated material did indeed belong to bin Laden, or if he even viewed it, it would appear to belie the al-Qaeda leader’s professed Islamic piety. Possessing or viewing pornography in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan during the time when bin Laden wielded enormous power in that country was punishable by death.

It is unclear how the pornography got into the internet-free Abbottabad hideout, but a video of Osama bin Laden watching himself on television prove the compound at least had video playback capability.

When US forces raided the compound, they found digital thumb drives, which in addition to being used by couriers to relay jihad-related information might also have been put to more salacious uses.

Whatcha watchin', Osama?
