(Newser) – Among the trove of information pulled from the Abbottabad compound where Osama bin Laden was killed are home videos of the al-Qaeda honcho, reports the AP. The tapes, which show him strolling around the compound, are expected to be released today along with previously unreleased propaganda tapes. Sources tell the AP that the information recovered suggests that bin Laden took a much more active role in al-Qaeda operations over the last decade than previously thought.
