Osama bin Laden had a lot of weird stuff on his computer when he was killed by US forces in 2011. The terrorist mastermind had NSFW anime, Hollywood movies, and even a 9-11 truther movie called Loose Change. And yes, that screenshot above from the video game X-Men vs Street Fighter is really from bin Laden’s computer.
Today the CIA released close to 470,000 files recovered from the compound in Pakistan where US forces killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011. The files include Bin Laden’s journal as well as audio and video files from devices seized throughout the Abbottabad compound. Much of the entertainment recovered doesn’t exactly square…
Today, the CIA released a trove of files obtained from Osama bin Laden’s compound when he was killed by US forces in 2011. We knew that bin Laden had some unexpected things on his computer, but we now have a better look at some of the files.
This is the once-classified model of Osama Bin Laden's compound—the one used to plan the Navy SEAL raid against the terrorist leader. From a distance, this model could be a piece you'd see in a museum, but in the details, you'll see the painstaking work that went into this tool which helped kill the devil lying inside.
Osama bin Laden may have been the evil mastermind behind the world's most successful terrorist group. But in his final days, he sounded more and more like your great aunt Henrietta: nagging his subordinates for not hating America enough - the terrorist equivalent of telling the kids to get off his lawn - and getting…
That smiling guy is Bill Warren, the Californian treasure hunter who claimed he was searching for Osama Bin Laden's dead body back in June 2011. He didn't find him then, but now he claims he has located the cadaver.
The biggest issue on tap for the 2012 presidential campaign season? Dealing with zombie terrorists. In the independent horror film Osombie, Osama Bin Laden will emerge from his water grave to convert Afghanistan — and eventually the world — to his zombie fundamentalism.
Osama Bin Laden may have gone out with a whimper but his secret lair in Abbottabad will soon be going out with a bang. A rocket-propelled bang, that is.
Months ago, I asked the Pentagon for its visual records of Osama bin Laden's sea burial under the Freedom of Information Act. Today, I received a thick packet of No— a complete denial that any records exist. Read it.
Or at least the trailer for it. Destined to play at a dollar theater doubleheader with Talibannosaurus Rex, Zombinladen: The Axis Of Evil Dead imagines the unfathomable world where Barack Obama has a French accent. Or something. I may have overlooked some key plot points.
Remember how Navy SEAL Team Six caught the entire raid on Bin Laden's compound on helmet cams? Yeah, well, that may not have happened. It's just one of multiple unexplained discrepancies from the raid.
The New Yorker has pieced together an amazing report about the Abbottabad raid aka Operation Kill bin Laden. Comprised from the personal accounts of the SEALs themselves, it has it all: Obama, Crankshaft, Pacer, DEVGRU, Cairo the Dog and more.
Yesterday the Associated Press published a lengthy profile of "John," the secretive CIA agent who led the effort to locate and kill Osama bin Laden. The CIA asked the AP not to report John's full name or certain biographical details that might identify him, and the AP complied. But internet spy-hunter and data…
Al-Shamuhk is the online forum where officially-sanctioned Al-Qaeda propaganda disseminates. It's the only internet communication channel they say you can trust. And this week, someone hacked the forum and took it off line.
As if war dogs and night vision contact lenses weren't enough, the killing of Osama bin Laden is going to be stylized in a wannabe Frank Miller-style art. It'll focus on SEAL Team 6 and take some liberties with fiction.
It's too late for Father's Day, but surely you can find a reason to give someone the Taliban chess set, from Canadian toy company Hedwig & Sergeant Major. Fight the "Good War" from the comfort of your own home!
But don't worry! They're just 1:144 scale toys. If this is the extent of Chinese reverse-engineering efforts, then the Pentagon can probably wipe the sweat off its trillion dollar brow. I'd still like one of these for my desk, though.
Well this is certainly bizarre. You might think author and former love of Osama bin Laden (!) Kola Boof might want to keep a low profile. Given, you know, the whole having sex with Bin Laden thing. Not quite!
