Bin Laden Raid Yields Trove of Hardcore Porn

WASHINGTON -- (TYDN) The assault force of Navy SEALs snatched a trove of hardcore pornography stored in computer drives and disks during their weekend raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound, yielding what a U.S. official Wednesday called "the mother lode of all porn collections," TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

"Top-notch" porn found in bin Laden's hideout
White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said the U.S. commandos who stormed the northern Pakistan compound where bin Laden had been holed up took "whatever material we thought was appropriate and what was needed."

The special operations forces grabbed personal computers, CDs, DVDs, thumb drives and electronic equipment during the lightning raid that killed bin Laden, he said. A task force was being set up at the CIA to comb through the evidence seized in the raid, according to a senior intelligence official who briefed TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity.

"You can't imagine what's on Osama bin Laden's hard drives and a giant stack of DVDs a mile high," one official connected to the assassination told TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity. "One hundred of our best men are examining the material in Afghanistan right now, hoping to uncover intelligence."

At least six well-placed officials who have seen or been debriefed about the cache said it consisted of apparently never-seen-before, "top-notch stuff." They said President Barack Obama was mulling releasing the footage to the public in an effort to prevent a terrorist attack.

"We think we can distract our enemies for several months if this top-notch stuff goes viral on the Internet," an intelligence official, who spoke to TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic, said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "The terrorists will be so busy downloading porn, they'll forget about jihad. The president believes this is a logical and prudent step to mitigate any developing threats."

Another U.S. counterterrorism official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said the amount of stockpiled hardcore porn was larger than expected. The official theorized the cache was so large because bin Laden had no phone or Internet service.

Bin Laden is believed to be the mastermind of al-Qaida's Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, which killed nearly 3,000 people and triggered a war in Iraq and Afghanistan that U.S. and allied troops are still fighting.
