It's 'the mother lode of intelligence,' a US official said of the materials found with Osama bin Laden in Abbattabad, Pakistan. The Wall Street Journal called the cache of computers and documents 'the largest potential intelligence coup of the post-9/11 era.' Here's a look at what was discovered, where it is now, and what it might reveal.
In the wake of Osama bin Laden's killing, Pakistan is defending itself against accusations that it was complicit in hiding the Al Qaeda leader.
At a gathering of regional military planners on Friday, analysts discussed how security conditions have deteriorated since the beginning of the Libyan conflict, and how Al Qaeda's affiliate has used the conflict to accumulate arms.
Western leaders and Arab citizens alike said that Osama bin Laden's death is an important symbolic victory, but does not signal an end to the threat of terrorism in the West.
Reports that US support for Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh is waning raises the question of whether a new leader would continue helping the US fight the local Al Qaeda franchise.
