Porn found in Osama's compound

We don't know if the porno stash found in his house was his or not. He had two sons living with him, and there were two other families living there.

But this isn't the first time we've seen jihadis think "Porno is Great!"


A stash of pornography was found in the hideout of Osama bin Laden by the U.S. commandos who killed him, current and former U.S. officials said on Friday.The pornography recovered in bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive, according to the officials, who discussed the discovery with Reuters on condition of anonymity.

The officials said they were not yet sure precisely where in the compound the pornography was discovered or who had been viewing it. Specifically, the officials said they did not know if bin Laden himself had acquired or viewed the materials.

Reports from Abbottabad have said that bin Laden's compound was cut off from the Internet or other hard-wired communications networks. It is unclear how compound residents would have acquired the pornography.

But a video released by the Obama administration confiscated from the compound showed bin Laden watching pictures of himself on a TV screen, indicating that the compound was equipped with video playback equipment.

Allah at Hot Air makes an interesting point:

All of this is comedy gold, needless to say, but I don't get the people who think it's some sort of, er, master stroke of U.S. propaganda. Not a single one of Bin Laden's followers will believe the porn story, I'd bet, and there's really no way to prove we're telling the truth. It'll be dismissed as more of the kufr's lies aimed at humiliating the blessed sheikh Osama Bin Blahblah, etc. Which is fine by me - I don't care if they're angry. But the administration does care, or else they wouldn't be resisting demands to release the Bin Laden death photos. Gloating over Osama's death, we're told, will only increase the risk to our troops in the field, so let's not make it any harder for them by spiking the football. Well, we're spiking it here too via sexual embarrassment and unprovable allegations of grave religious sin, and given jihadis' insane psychological hang-ups about women and cleanliness, we're arguably spiking it in a way that's even more incendiary than showing them the kill shot. Again, that's A-OK by me, but I'm not sure how the White House reconciles these two positions.

In a related vein, President Obama has taken to "spiking the football" himself during his campaign speeches, getting applause when mentioning the death of bin Laden.

What was that about the American people shouldn't do a victory dance about Osama's death?
