Unless OBL was in to crocheting baskets and socks.

Socks are made from knitting, crocheting is used to make things like lace and doilies.

So maybe he was crocheting doilies ?

Nothing wrong with wanting to make a cave more home-y feeling... who are we to judge, eh ?

CIA releases new tranche of materials seized in 2011 Osama bin Laden raid

A computer recovered in the 2011 U.S. special forces operation that killed Osama bin Laden contained a video collection that included kids' cartoons, several Hollywood movies and three documentaries about himself.

The list of the videos was included in the release on Wednesday by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency of nearly 470,000 files found on the computer seized in the May 2, 2011, U.S. raid on the al Qaeda founder's hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

What was in Osama bin Laden’s computer, CIA reveals

So I have to say I would not want the contents of my computer put up for public display esp. the section of errrr "Art" photos. That being said, I did not found and lead a major terrorist organization either.

So what did we find?

Aside from the profiles / documentaries of himself and the obligatory beheading video......

The viral video "Charlie Bit My Finger"
Lots of pirated movies like Antz and Cars (he did have kids)
role-playing game Final Fantasy VII (Cough *what a geek* Cough)
Tom and Jerry cartoons ?????
Copy of Resident Evil: Who doesn't like Project Alice right?

Best of all: A 911 Truther video

Its quite interesting and while he is dead, there remains a level of fascination behind this man. It really does make things clearer for me, and perhaps confuses things. Typically these religious extremists are a do as I say not as I do group and Old Bin Laden was no different

I'd say Final Fantasy was likely used for communications to other cells. It has been widely know that cells use online gaming for comms.

Final Fantasy 7 isn't an online game, it's a playstation original game from 1997. The file on Bin Laden's computer though, wasn't even the game, it was the movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.

So nope with a big old side of nope.

Final Fantasy VII is a single player game from 1997. Original Playstation days.

There, now my nerdom is out there for everyone to see!

Ha...yes it is. I played it too. The one from the article was a newer version of it that was on his PC and if I'm not mistaken, did have the ability to connect and speak with other players online.

No such version of Final Fantasy 7 exists. Final Fantasy 11 and Final Fantasy 14 are online games, but the PC version of FF7 was virtually identical to the original playstation version and did not contain any multiplayer or online connectivity at all in any capacity. And again -- he had the film, not the game.

This is not a cut scene, this is a feature film released in 2005, then re-released in 2009.

The more time that goes by the more I think OBL was more like the Mandarin character on Iron Man 3

Like I'm gonna believe they gave us the true contents of his computer.

I can't even look at the list.

I would be interested to see the actual computers of the actual OBL, but, I have no reason to believe this is that.

Why wouldn't he have personal stuff on his computer? Or better yet why lie about it? If anything it humanizes him which is the opposite of what they want to be doing anyway.
