Officials: Information seized in bin Laden raid could be beneficial

WOODBURY - ? This afternoon, reports say President Obama and his team watched the raid on Osama bin Laden from hi-tech cameras attached to the Navy SEALs' helmets.

Up until now, Obama and his security team were among the few to see the inside of bin Laden?s compound in Pakistan. Today, pictures surfaced that showed the aftermath of the furious battle that the U.S. Navy SEALs engaged in, in order to kill the most wanted terrorist in the world. Officials say the al-Qaida terrorist leader that was the mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks lived and died in a fortified compound built in Pakistan in 2005. The compound was located on the outskirts of Abbottabad, about 60 miles from the capital of Islamabad. Inside the compound, amateur video reveals the scenes of everyday life, bottles on a shelf, slippers, a book case, a sink with dishes and food and evidence of a bloody attack. Officials say with the mission?s main objective accomplished, the Navy SEALs gathered any intelligence stored in bin Laden?s compound that would help dismantle his terrorist network. U.S. intelligence officials are now combing through the information seized in the raid with hope of finding information and leads on other al-Qaida leaders and possible attack plots.
