One Thing Discovered Inside Osama bin Laden's Compound That the U.S. Gov't Won't Be Releasing

Despite releasing a massive trove of documents that were intercepted during the 2011 raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistani compound, there's at least one collection that the U.S. government won't be unveiling to the public: a fairly large library of pornography videos.

"We have no plans to release that at this point in time," Brian Hale, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, told the Telegraph this week. "Due to the nature of the content the decision was made not to release it."

The pornography was reportedly discovered on computers that were housed inside of bin Laden's compound, though it is unclear whether the videos belonged to the terror leader or to the 21 other individuals who were also reportedly staying there, the Telegraph reported.

Reports about pornography inside of bin Laden's lair first emerged back in 2011, with Reuters describing the stash at the time as "modern, electronically recorded video [that] is fairly extensive."

As TheBlaze previously reported, the items that were found in the compound and released to the public include letters to family members, messages to the American people, books, magazines — and a chilling Al Qaeda job application that asks whether applicants would be willing to conduct a suicide mission.

The application concludes with the following question: "Who should we contact in case you become a martyr?" Read more about the newly released documents here.

The U.S. government will release additional information and documentation from inside of the compound at a later time, the Telegraph reported.
