"But bin Laden also wrote extensively — and at times endearingly — to aunts, wives, sons and daughters from whom he had been separated."

"'What is the latest funny news?' he wrote in one undated message to a daughter whom he asked to 'forgive me if I made you mad — and perhaps for having done so frequently.'"

Should we be shocked that evil men are human?

I quote: “No one is an unjust villain in his own mind. Even - perhaps even especially - those who are the worst of us. Some of the cruelest tyrants in history were motivated by noble ideals, or made choices that they would call 'hard but necessary steps' for the good of their nation. We're all the hero of our own story.”

Hitler was nice to dogs and little (German) girls. I saw a picture of him him feeding a squirrel, in leather shorts. (ugh-oh, shorts!)

If bin Laden was still the active leader of al Qaeda, why was he sitting huddled under an old army blanket watching kiddie porn on a 13" Sharp TV in a dingy frontier fort compound with flaking paint and stucco coming off the walls?

I had expected that if they found him, it would be in an upscale mansion in Karachi or Islamabad, but it does not look like the ISI thought that much of him.

So, I suspect these releases are just more squirrels and aluminum glitter.

I'm also impressed that he was quite fond of Leftist literature.
