As it turns out, Osama bin Laden wasn’t just a video maker. He had actually become quite enthralled with television, especially when it came to seeing his own face on the little screen.
The bin Laden we grew to know and loathe appeared in a series of videos that were released one after another, sort of his version of a terrorist reality show. Interestingly, though, he had not released a video since 2007.
But now, thanks to a portion of a cache of materials that were retrieved from the walled compound by the extraordinary Navy Seals unit that took bin Laden down, a selection of videos were recovered that included outtakes of Osama’s propaganda presentations.
