All righty then

Here's a weird one for you. The CIA has recently released thousands of pages of documents that detail all the files Osama Bin Laden had on his computer when was hiding out in his compound in Pakistan.

The terrorist had all kinds of bizarre files on the hard drive, including video games and Hollywood movies. This stands in stark contrast to his supposedly stark views on entertainment - not to mention the West in general.

But hey, what is that on his hard drive, among all the other nonsense? Why, it's one of the most famous YouTube videos of all time. Yes, Osama Bin Laden had 'Charlie Bit Me' on his computer.

Yeah, THIS video:

Ouch Charlie.

The CIA states that:

"With the release of these materials, the information remaining in the collection that has not been released publicly includes materials that are protected by copyright; sensitive such that their release would directly damage efforts to keep the nation secure; pornography; malware; and blank, corrupted, and duplicate files. The entire collection has been available to the US Intelligence Community and Department of Defense organisations for years. "

Sadly the CIA have not commented on 'Charlie Bit Me' directly, despite that clearly being the most important issue here,
