When U.S. Navy Seals left Osama bin Laden’s fortified compound in Abbottabad nearly two weeks ago they took with them a treasure trove of material. Since then U.S. officials have combed through numerous flash drives and discovered a stash of pornography. The pornography collection consists of “modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive.” According to Reuters, “officials said they were not yet sure precisely where in the compound the pornography was discovered or who had been viewing it. Specifically, the officials said they did not know if bin Laden himself had acquired or viewed the materials.” The compound was cut off from the Internet and it is unknown how or why the erotic material was acquired.

Green Card Lottery Winners Not So Lucky

A computer glitch has forced the U.S. State Department to cancel this year’s annual visa lottery and redraw it. An unidentified spokesperson for the State Department released a statement saying, “Regrettably, the results that were previously posted on this website are not valid, they were posted in error. They did not represent a fair, random selection of entrants as required by U.S. law. We sincerely regret any inconvenience or disappointment.” The error occurred when more than 90 percent of the selectees were drawn from those who registered in the first two days of the program. Each year the U.S. government invites people from countries with low immigration to participate in the annual lottery for a chance to win a green card. This year some 20 million people applied for 50,000 permanent residency visas. Some 22,000 people had already been notified that they were successful in this year’s lottery. Now they’ll have to hope their names are drawn again. The new results will be announced July 15. [AFP]
