I just came across this and found some very interesting things that made me think or at least wonder. I'm still going through a lot of it, but really thought some of you members would enjoy digging around in it yourself.

Snippet from article:

View the Media Release | Download a PDF Version On May 20, 2015, the ODNI released a sizeable tranche of documents recovered during the raid on the compound used to hide Usama bin Ladin. The release, which followed a rigorous interagency review, aligns with the President’s call for increased transparency–consistent with national security prerogatives–and the 2014 Intelligence Authorization Act, which required the ODNI to conduct a review of the documents for release. The release contains two sections. The first is a list of non-classified, English-language material found in and around the compound. The second is a selection of now-declassified documents.

What really got my mind going just to begin with, were the English books that were in the collection. Interesting that these are books he wanted to read or did read. I can't believe they were just on a shelf for show

Some of the books and these are just a handful:

Military Intelligence Blunders by John Hughes-Wilson
Project MKULTRA, the CIA’s program of research in behavioral modification.
Joint hearing before the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Committee on Human Resources, United States Senate, Ninety-fifth Congress, first session, August 3, 1977. United States. Congress. Senate. Select Committee on Intelligence.
Necessary Illusions: Thought Control in Democratic Societies by Noam Chomsky
New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 by David Ray Griffin
New Political Religions, or Analysis of Modern Terrorism by Barry Cooper
Obama’s Wars by Bob Woodward
Oxford History of Modern War by Charles Townsend
The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers by Paul Kennedy
Rogue State: A Guide to the World’s Only Superpower by William Blum
The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly Hall (1928)
Secrets of the Federal Reserve by Eustace Mullins
The Taking of America 1-2-3 by Richard Sprague


I wonder just how much a brain could learn from that reading, or what the person reading it may be wanting to learn and or discover.
I really found the fact he was interested in the MKULTRA just to name one.
As I said this is just a small handful. There really is quite a bit more. Hopefully some more members will dig around on this site as well to see what might come to light.

he had a lot of books, no doubt...he didn't read the one that explains how not to get shot in his head, apparently.

i suppose in retrospect that should have been the first book he read.

I expected to see 'the stranger' in his shelf.

Since it's on the list, anyone else here read The Secret Teachings on All Ages? I got just over halfway through it. It's pretty fascinating, but lacks sources for its claims. I stopped when it went in depth into calling forth demons...

I'm sure the Cia has a simular "bookshelf".

Also, probably bigger bookshelf then "Bin Ladin" had.

Interesting selection though.

Typical ATSer bookshelf fare to me.
No Peanuts cartoons or Garfield books?
Dr. Suess?
He was a monster!

Surprised he didn't have "Catcher in the Rye" for being such the conspiracy theorist.

May be a stupid question, but could Osama even read English? I don't believe I ever heard a recording of him speaking it, just the dubbed versions of him threatening the US.

CIA probably taught him how to read basic stuff for just in case he got stuck in traffic.

Next thing you know they will point bin laden as anti government conspiracy theorist

And group us into the whole thing.

I suspect a lot of CIA assets and patsies have a keen interest in MKUltra.

1987 Bill Ayers solicited Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour (a.k.a. Donald Warden) to raise money for Obama’s Harvard Law School education. al-Mansour is an orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, an outspoken enemy of Israel, and mentor to Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton and his cohort, Bobby Seale. At the time al-Mansour associate Percy Sutton was raising money for Obama’s education, al-Mansour was the top financial advisor to mega-billionaire Prince Alwaleed (Alwalid) bin Talal of the Saudi royal family. 1988-1991 Obama attended Harvard Law School.

Whether true or not, I don't know.

Here he is in Oxford:



I'm guessing he spoke English fine.

OK, but how does that relate to bin Laden? So a relative could speak English, that doesn't mean Osama was fluent enough to read.
That's the fishy thing here for me. None of his "death to America" videos that I recall were in English. If you could threaten a country in a language spoken by 90% of the inhabitants of that country, why wouldn't you?
