Osama Liked Porn?

Sam predicted it first, and Stacy beat me to the story today, but it looks like Sam was right. Reuters is reporting that Osama bin Laden’s confiscated stash included porn. No word on whether or not children were involved, or goats.

The pornography recovered in bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive….

Reports from Abbottabad have said that bin Laden’s compound was cut off from the Internet or other hard-wired communications networks. It is unclear how compound residents would have acquired the pornography.

But a video released by the Obama administration confiscated from the compound showed bin Laden watching pictures of himself on a TV screen, indicating that the compound was equipped with video playback equipment.

There’s a visual I don’t want in my head – Osama, porn, watching himself. Ick.

So much for the theory that Islamic fanatics hate us because of stuff like porn.
