Auction Set for Bin Laden's Effects

by Thornhille Broom, TYDN Editor at Large
WASHINGTON -- (TYDN) The treasure trove of personal items and effects seized from Osama bin Laden as American forces assassinated the al-Qaeda chief last month are to be auctioned, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

Sought-after items going to the highest bidder next month include "top-notch" print and video porn with titles like Virgins Rock and Suicide Virgins seized from the terrorist's Pakistani hideout; bin Laden's personal manifesto Theory and Practice: Talibanism and Porn Collecting; tens of thousands of bomb-making ingredients and instructions; and a draft of his latest treatise, Why Talibanism Allows Me to Collect Porn But Says You Should Be Killed For Having Porn.

The auction, to be conducted July 1 by the CIA on eBay, is expected to fetch substantially more than the $232,000 paid during an online auction last week for Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski's writings and other personal material seized from his Montana cabin, analysts noted in exclusive interviews with TheYellowDailyNews.

These analysts, continuing with their exclusive interviews with TheYellowDailyNews, said a key reason why is that bin Laden is responsible for killing thousands. The Unabomber, who had led the authorities on the nation's longest, costliest manhunt before his brother tipped off the police in 1996, only killed three people.

"I mean, come on, which stuff would you rather show off to your friends, the Unabomber's manifesto or bin Laden's porn collection?" John McCickey, a consignment director at Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "Let's face it, if it weren't for bin Laden, Kaczynski's stuff would have sold for a lot, lot more."
