And here we go - showing off the grand prizes of "The war on Terrorism" !
The CIA’s museum in Langley, Virginia, recently acquired a new artifact: the AK-47 of Osama bin Laden, a weapon that was found beside the
former al-Qaeda leader’s dead body after he was killed by US Navy SEALs.
The museum contains gadgets, trophies, spyware and artifacts from the past 70 years, including pieces from World War II and the War on Terror. The
museum is closed to the public, but NBC News became the first media organization permitted to bring video cameras into the facility.
The Russian AK-47 with counterfeit Chinese markings was recovered from the Abbottabad compound where bin Laden was killed in a midnight raid, and
recently put on display at the museum, according to the exclusive NBC report.
Museum Curator Toni Hiley said the Chinese markings remain a mystery, but a Central Intelligence Agency analyst has concluded that the weapon
definitively belonged to bin Laden.
So, what do ATS think about this?
Next up at Sotheby's; Bin Ladens "Magic Carpet" - they say it flies (major pun intended!)
