Could Osama bin Laden have been a secret porn freak — in addition to being one of the world’s most notorious terrorists?
Reuters is reporting that the U.S. Navy Seal raid on bin Laden’s compound not only produced a dead Osama, it also uncovered a cache of pornography. The article quotes officials as saying that the stash consisted of “modern, electronically recorded video” and “is fairly extensive.” The officials said they do not know whether bin Laden himself acquired or watched the porn, which may have been delivered by couriers. There also was no information about what kind of pornography was involved — which could be instructive. Was it Playboy-type T&A stuff or at the more violent, hard-core end of the pornography spectrum?
Interestingly, the American officials are quoted as saying that, in our investigations of other Islamic militants, it is not uncommon to find pornography. What does that tell you about our terrorist foes?
