Bin Laden hideout had extensive porn stash, officials say
We already know that Osama bin Laden kept journals and watched television reports about himself while hiding in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan before he was killed in U.S. military operation May 1. It turns out he might have been building his porn collection, too.
U.S. officials say a "fairly extensive" stash of pornography was recovered from the former al Qaeda leader's compound, Reuters first reported Friday.
The pornography "consists of modern, electronically recorded video," Reuters reported, citing current and former officials.

But the officials said they did not know where in the compound the materials were found. They might not have belonged to -- or been viewed by -- bin Laden himself.
