Someone asked the CIA for details on Osama bin Laden's porn stash

The Navy SEALs who raided Osama bin Laden's in 2011 found a treasure trove of information on the workings of al Qaeda leadership, but one "bro" is concerned with only one thing: the terror mastermind's porn stash.


"What I want to know is what he jerked it to," wrote David Covucci, at the college "bro" site, BroBible. "Because when he was killed, it was reported — probably as an attempt to disgrace him — that Bin Laden had a significant stash of pornographic material."

Indeed, Reuters reported bin Laden had "modern, electronically recorded video" that "is fairly extensive," according to U.S. officials. So Covucci did what any bro would do when searching for the truth. He filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the CIA:

And quite shockingly, the agency responded:

"With regard to the pornographic material Osama Bin Laden had in his possession at the time of his death, responsive records, should they exist, would be contained in the operational files. The CIA Information Act, 50 U.S.C 431, as amended, exempts CIA operational files from search, review, publication, and disclosure requirements of the FOIA. To the extent that this material exists, the CIA would be prohibited by 18 USC Section 1461 from mailing obscene matter."

Oh come on!
