We Got Osama's Hard Drives

It's being called 'the motherlode of intelligence.' One of the benefits of finding Bin Laden and killing him is what he left behind - a treasure trove of information in the form of multiple sources. Computers, flash drives, etc. Officials are saying that even if a small amount of the information is actionable, it will be incredibly significant. In light of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas both condemning Bin Laden's killing, it will be interesting to see how much of the intelligence exposes the complicity of those two groups with Bin Laden's activities.

The assault force of Navy SEALs snatched a trove of computer drives and disks during their weekend raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound, yielding what a U.S. official called “the mother lode of intelligence.”

The special operations forces grabbed personal computers, thumb drives and electronic equipment during the lightning raid that killed bin Laden, officials told POLITICO.

“They cleaned it out,” one official said. “Can you imagine what’s on Osama bin Laden’s hard drive?”

U.S. officials are about to find out. The material is being examined at a secret location in Afghanistan.

“Hundreds of people are going through it now,” an official said, adding that intelligence operatives back in Washington are very excited to find out what they have.

“It’s going to be great even if only 10 percent of it is actionable,” the official said.
There could also be significant information on Bin Laden's relationship with the Pakistani government.
