US intelligence examining bin Laden’s PC, electronic equipmentMay 3rd, 2011 - 5:39 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 3 (ANI): The assault team involved in the killing of Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden has reportedly managed to grab personal computers, thumb drives and electronic equipment during their 40-minute operation, which is now being examined by American intelligence outfits.
According to CBS News, the intelligence community is exploring the information obtained during the raid in an attempt to learn al Qaeda intentions and the identity and whereabouts of key al Qaeda players.
The source said a top priority continues to be the dismantlement of al Qaeda’s core.
American officials are now turning their focus to the elimination of Ayman al-Zawahri, bin Laden’s second in command, and other senior operative planners who pose a threat to western interests. The source said there is a concern however that core al Qaeda members in Pakistan may be stepping up attack plans.
“They got bin Laden but not the keys to the kingdom,” the source said. (ANI)
