CIA releases Osama Bin Laden's home movies

The CIA has released a trove of Osama Bin Laden's home movies, showing his children and grandchildren playing and having fun all while he's the world's most wanted man.

Seal Team Six seized the videos from Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad after they raided it and killed him in 2011.

The videos show an apparently normal and happy family, and they don't seem to be living in fear. All of the footage was taken from a computer recovered during the 2011 raid. The hard drive was full of kids' cartoons, big Hollywood movies, and three documentaries about himself.

Materials that haven't been released are being held back because they could harm national security, are blank, corrupted, are copyright protected, or are pornographic.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said:

"Today’s release of recovered Al Qaeda letters, videos, audio files and other materials provides the opportunity for the American people to gain further insights into the plans and workings of this terrorist organization. CIA will continue to seek opportunities to share information with the American people consistent with our obligation to protect national security."
