You Thought I Was Joking

When it was announced that the commandos who raided Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan took his computers and hard drives, I wrote:

(Reuters) – A stash of pornography was found in the hideout of Osama bin Laden by the U.S. commandos who killed him, current and former U.S. officials said on Friday.

The pornography recovered in bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive, according to the officials, who discussed the discovery with Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Somebody owes me five bucks.
