The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) recently released a collection of files acquired from Osama bin Laden; from Tom and Jerry cartoons to crochet instructional videos to beheading films, his computer had a peculiar mix of everything.

For example, he had one video of the beheading of Jack Hensley, a 49-year-old American beheaded in Iraq in 2004. But then again, Laden even had Hollywood movies like Antz, Cars, Heroes of Tomorrow, Chicken Little and Resident Evil. While it is possible that kids were watching some of these movies in the compound, it is difficult not to imagine Bin Laden himself sitting alone and cracking up to scenes from Chicken Little.

And among the compilation of 40 odd videos, just as expected was a video we knew Bin Laden would naturally gravitate towards:

    Why is there no Arabic language video? He was Arab… no? If he is interested in Hollywood stuff, he should shown some interest in Arabic music/movies/tv dramas etc. as well. There are always questions when a new episode of OBL drama is released. Recommend

    A troubled man driven by hate and a warped ideology. The harm he caused still reverberates through countless young men in both Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    To be remembered forever in infamy!Recommend
