The CIA released nearly 470,000 files recovered from the Pakistani compound where U.S. forces killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011. Many of the files include Bin Laden’s journal as well as various audio and video files used to make messages.
A lot of the files included thoughts on the state of al-Qaeda at the time, but people have been uncovering some juicy tidbits. It’s a little surreal that a terrorist mastermind spent his time watching Antz, Chicken Little, and meme videos like ‘Charlie Bit My Finger.” His computer also had anime and hentai.
Bin Laden or someone at his compound had a thing for ’80s Japanese eroge and classic video game art.

Bin Laden or a confidant was also a frequent visitor of Msoms-anime, an Arabic forum for fan translations of pirated anime. A recovered computer had non-consecutive episodes of Detective Conan, which is a series about a young detective helping the police solve crimes.
There is nothing wrong with enjoying anime and eroge in your spare time, it’s just not a hobby people associate with a terrorist mastermind that avoided capture for a decade.
The real question we are now stuck wondering – who did Bin Laden think was the best girl in Detective Conan?
