Following Translation Of the Bin Laden Evidence, US Steps Up Tracking Of New Operatives

When Osama bin Laden was finally shot and killed by US Navy Seals, a treasure trove of evidence was removed from his compound as well. The CIA, the FBI and other high ranking government agencies have been feverishly poring over that evidence, which included five computers, twice as many hard drives and over one hundred thumb drives. The CIA led the team which has spent the past five weeks, working around the clock to decode, translate and analyze all of the information that has been obtained for insight into the terrorist leader’s mind and any plans that might have been discussed.

Included in the documents are a number of email communications between Bin Laden and a number of operatives of different ranks. The emails are described as telling- giving the US agencies a glimpse into the way that things were working, including who might possibly be waiting for a chance to step up to the leader role. All of the information contained in the documents is considered classified and is not allowed to be released to the general public.

FBI Director, Robert Mueller did report that al Quaida still has plans to attack US targets with a number of plans discussed but not solidified. Those plans, discussed in the email communications, included attacking smaller cities in the United States to circumvent the security found in the larger cities as well as attacking mass transit systems, US embassies located in foreign countries and oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. One of the communications reportedly explained that a tanker would have to be blown from the inside out to be effective.

Al Quaida had been carrying out small scale but violent attacks in other countries, including Denmark, something that Bin Laden had approved of but did not directly order. Denmark was targeted for a number of reasons, including disparaging remarks against Muhammad in Danish press.

The US briefed several ally countries, including Britain and Germany about the contents of the recovered evidence as well as the potential for renewed terrorist attacks. The information was also shared with the Pakistani government in an effort to mend fences with that country. Pakistan had been purposely kept out of the loop before the raid on the bin Laden compound to prevent the information from being leaked. Pakistan officially denies having any knowledge of where bin Laden was as well as denying that the country played a role in hiding him.

The report also revealed some of the conditions of the compound as well as the way that the people who lived there spent their days. There was only one guard who did grocery shopping and one high ranking sheik who came to teach the children who lived there. Food was scarce, furnishing was substandard at best. Air conditioning was only located in one room, Bin Laden’s room, shared with him and three of his wives. The compound’s building did not have a heat source.
