Osama’s Porn Stash

Could Osama bin Laden have been a secret porn freak — in addition to being one of the world’s most notorious terrorists?

Reuters is reporting that the U.S. Navy Seal raid on bin Laden’s compound not only produced a dead Osama, it also uncovered a cache of pornography.  The article quotes officials as saying that the stash consisted of “modern, electronically recorded video” and “is fairly extensive.”  The officials said they do not know whether bin Laden himself acquired or watched the porn, which may have been delivered by couriers.  There also was no information about what kind of pornography was involved — which could be instructive.  Was it Playboy-type T&A stuff or at the more violent, hard-core end of the pornography spectrum?

Interestingly, the American officials are quoted as saying that, in our investigations of other Islamic militants, it is not uncommon to find pornography.  What does that tell you about our terrorist foes?

  1. Well, it tells us that they like porn. Just like many Americans. And to think Sting thought that the bond between us and our enemies was that we both loved our children. Really, its that we both love porn!!!

  2. Actually, Professor Current, I think it tells you more than that. I think it tells you that our Islamic foes are hypocrites. Osama bin Laden and his pals railed against the American culture and its seamy side, but when it came down to it they buy the porn and revel in the vulgar stuff just like Americans (and other westerners) do.
