CIA releases trove of Bin Laden’s files

According to the Intelligence Authorization Act, which requires the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to conduct a review of the documents for release, the ODNI previously released documents from the collection in 2015, 2016 and 2017 after an interagency review spearheaded by the CIA.

The Central Intelligence Agency released 470,000 additional files seized in May 2011 when US Navy SEALs burst into the Abbottabad compound and shot dead Osama Bin Laden.

In addition to the more serious documentaries on himself, there were BBC and National Geographic videos including World's Worst Venom,Inside the Green Berets and Kung Fu Killer.

The documents give the fullest account yet of al-Qaeda's ambiguous relationship with Iran.

One of bin Laden's most notable YouTube items found was a viral video from 2007 featuring a barely four-year-old boy complaining to his father about his brother Charley who is no older than a few months.

The CIA on Wednesday released almost 470,000 additional files that were seized during a raid on Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan in 2011.

The CIA said the materials provide insights into the origins of the differences between Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, disagreements within Al Qaeda and its allies, and the problems Al Qaeda faced at the time of bin Laden's death.

The CIA also released bin Laden's 228-page personal journal, written by hand in Arabic.
