Holy Hypocrite! Porn Found in Osama Bin Laden Compound


Opinion by Michael Flood McNulty

We're finding out more and more about the secret existence of one Osama Bin Laden. The latest revelation? The World's Most Wanted Man apparently liked pornography. U.S. officials have revealed the Navy SEALS, who carried out a daring mission in Pakistan that left Bin Laden dead, found a "fairly extensive" stash of current X-rated videos in the terrorist chief's compound.

What's next? Osama threw Super Bowl parties for neighbors in Abbottabad? Osama drove a Ford F-150? Now, there's nothing necessarily wrong with watching or possessing pornography -- just look at how many American males "collect" it -- but there is something extremely hypocritcal going on here: Bin Laden constantly railed against the excesses of the "decadent" West and the ills of American society.

Considering the man drank Coca-Cola, perhaps the most American drink of all, and watched good ol' porn, his moral indignation now seems more than a bit hollow. According to The Daily Mail, the unnamed officials said it's not known exactly where the porn was found in relation to where Bin Laden died -- and unless one of his wives admits it, we can't determine if Bin Laden himself watched the pornography -- but we can assume he may have sneaked a peek considering the material was found in his lair.
