Washington (CNN) - President Obama says that evidence taken out of Osama Bin Laden’s compound “can give us leads to other terrorists". Articles such as computer documents and computer drives were seized from the compound, along with video tapes of the terrorist watching himself on television. Video of Bin Laden practicing speeches were also obtained.
Leads to other terrorists and high value targets is what President Obama is hoping this new found intelligence will lead him to. He believes this information can also be used to disrupt or even finish off Al Qaeda.
U.S. officials, who Saturday released five videos, emphasized the recordings and other materials seized at bin Laden's Pakistan compound show the terrorist still had a firm hand at the tiller, managing strategic and tactical control of his organization, even as he stayed out of sight in Abbottabad.Read More
