Tapping away at his computer in the study of the suburban compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, that he called home for the last years of his life, Osama bin Laden wrote memos urging his followers to continue to try to attack the United States, suggesting, for instance, they mount assassination attempts against President Obama and Gen. David Petraeus.
While he urged his organization on to attack America, bin Laden was also keenly aware that al Qaeda was in deep trouble because of the campaign of CIA drone strikes in Pakistan and also because the brutal tactics of his followers had alienated many Muslims.
According to senior Obama administration officials who have reviewed the "treasure trove" of the thousands of documents that were picked up by the U.S. Navy SEALs from bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, the leaders of al Qaeda understood that the group they led was "beleaguered." CNN was given a briefing this week by senior administration officials who have been analyzing the documents.

In the treasure trove with his copy of “Debbie Does Dubai”...
For a guy with the kind of money he controlled he had a piss poor entertainment center.
He couldn’t exactly get comcast and Verizon. Besides, he probably got better news.
Im being serious. This election is a major stressor. Maybe I should take a break. I can’t begin to tell you my unhappiness of the state of affairs. Im starting to view prepper threads more often..
Now im even talking to myself. Im going batshit crazy. Liberals drive ne nuts... go Noles!!!
That proves he was losing it. Only a fool would kill his strongest supporter to send a political message.
LOL, my wife asks me all the time if I am talking to myself. I tell her, “Yes, I’m the only one making sense!”
This is such crap. Can Obama try harder to make himself look like the winner of this international grudge match? He is soooo tough against this bad guy Osama!
Are the American people so stupid to buy this fantasy? Osama was out of the game. He could barely figure out a way to get groceries, let alone mastermind a Presidential asassination.
This isn’t even good second rate Vince Flynn or Brad Thor—if these guys wrote junk like this, their editors would laugh them out of the office.
Obama probably plays 007 with his “body boy” when Michelle is out of town.
What about Andrew Breitbart?
Well, he did get the part about Biden right.
