Kind of lost in the euphoria on the web yesterday over the fact that U.S. special forces had actually killed Osama Bin Laden was the news that they’d escaped the compound with something that could ultimately prove to be much more valuable than Bin Laden’s life: a bunch of hard drives and disks they ripped from computers inside the compound.
The assault force of Navy SEALs snatched a trove of computer drives and disks during their weekend raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound, yielding what a U.S. official called “the mother lode of intelligence.”
The special operations forces grabbed personal computers, thumb drives and electronic equipment during the lightning raid that killed bin Laden, officials told POLITICO.
“They cleaned it out,” one official said. “Can you imagine what’s on Osama bin Laden’s hard drive?”
Well, actually, I have taken the time to imagine what’s on Bin Laden’s hard drive, and I can totally imagine him being a total meme fiend! But the question is, which types of memes would a guy like Osama fancy? Won’t you take a minute to participate in our little poll to give us your opinion?
My vote went for Business Cat, because, after all, what’s not to love about Business Cat?!?!
