Skip to comments.CIA Looks for New Clues on Al Qaeda Trail, Reviews Evidence From Bin Laden Compound
Posted on 05/02/2011 2:08:01 PM PDT by PSYCHO-FREEP
Vehicles are parked inside the compound of a house where it is believed Usama bin Laden lived in Abbottabad, Pakistan, May 2. Usama bin Laden's body sank to the bottom of the Arabian Sea Monday morning after he was buried in accordance with Islamic practice.
But while his death marked the end of one counterterror mission -- a big one -- it could unlock new clues as intelligence analysts start to review the materials captured at bin Laden's Pakistan compound during the raid.
Along with bin Laden's body, electronics and hard drives were seized by U.S. forces following the firefight Sunday afternoon.
They have started to arrive at the CIA's Virginia headquarters, officials said. They described the cache as a "volume of materials" that will be "exploited and analyzed" at CIA headquarters.
It's unclear what kinds of information the files might contain. Intelligence officials spent years tracking the threads of information that eventually led them to the courier that led them to bin Laden's compound. But officials have said the successful mission Sunday is only one step in the ongoing fight against Al Qaeda and its affiliates.

This might sound like a crazy question but, at this point in time, do we really want to bury Al Qaeda? After all, it appears that with the growing revolutions in the Middle East/North Africa, Iran and Ahmed Ahadinejhad is the bigger threat in the region. Iran represents a Shia Muslim sect and Al Qaeda represents a Sunni Muslim sect. We might want to keep Al Qaeda intact until these revolutions are over with. I'd hate for us to wake up one day and find an Iranian led Shia Muslim Caliphate in the Middle East/North Africa and no indigenous Middle East force to resist that.
Wat's in Cambodia.
“This is all you get in Pakistan for $1 million? Worse than SF.”
Maybe they had bad credit and that was all they could afford?
“Bin Laden was found at luxury Pakistan compound”
“with his youngest wife in a million-dollar compound in a summer resort”
“Bin Laden’s luxury hideout raises questions”
An insult to Geronimo, who was a REAL warrior and did not hide behind his womenfolk.
If true, this is not a good thing (even if the result was good). Although, in a Democrat administration, what can one expect.
Hint: Al Qaeda is behind those revolutions.
I noticed that today on several channels. I think you’re right. Too easy to confuse “Obama” and “Osama”.
Hmmm, we know under UBL, that Al-Qaeda and Iran were not friends....now with him out of the way, could the two join forces?
Sheila Jackson Lee: Cambodia??? I thought this occurred in Pakistan? It must be near the border.
I’m sure that obl body was dropped into the sea with a black box attached in order to bring him back for future obama photo ops.
Hint: Al Qaeda is behind those revolutions.
I reading more that the Iranian influence in those revolutions is greater than Al Qaeda.
Fox has been calling him Usama since before 9/11. Don’t know why; maybe they just wanted to be different.
Usama bin Ladin is an alternate and correct spelling. Bin Ladin is on the construction company business documents.
Anyone who is anybody wants to live there...
They were not necessarily friends and they were not necessarily enemies. But they were/are Muslims, and Iran has been harboring a number of Bin Laden's operatives for years now.
This truly is a great moment, and a very patiently engineered military and propaganda victory for the USA as a nation. It is a vindication of its people, its military assets, its intelligence community, and even its leaders, past and present.
America's might, when its people are united in righteous determination, is an imposing, formidable, perilous thing. It is not to be trifled with or misunderestimated, even with mediocre leadership.
The worst American President on America's worst day is still infinitely preferable to these Euro-Marxists and Petty Tyrants who rule the rest of the world!
God Bless America: still the envy of the world! Live it, learn it, love it.
