(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.

Hey guys...they won't let me put my advertisement on this site about the "New Osama Collection of Videos.... I wrote it in the style of SNL and when I tried to post it a warning come up that it is up for review. I've read some pretty offensive stuff about other religions and they weren't barred from posting them. and mine doesn't include any foul language. It's not like I'm showing a picture of Mohammad .....Allah forbid. It's a joke Newser...grow a pair
