The news comes after the CIA released 47,000 previously classified files seized during the 2011 raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in 2011.
The massive release includes pornography, movies, and even the terror leader’s personal journal.
It also includes thousands of other documents as well as al Qaeda’s potential promotional and planning materials.
The videos also included a compilation of funny cat videos and the viral hit Charlie Bit My Finger.
Bin Laden also had a copy of the animated kid’s movie Antz on his hard drive along with a series of memes, comedy Youtube videos and videos of cats, according to the documents seized when U.S. troops stormed a compound in Pakistan, murdering Bin Laden in cold blood before allegedly dumping his body in the ocean.
Bin Laden didn’t use an internet connection at the time of the raid so it is thought that a friend may have gifted the popular on a hard drive.
“Today’s release of recovered al-Qaeda letters, videos, audio files and other materials provides the opportunity for the American people to gain further insights into the plans and workings of this terrorist organization,” said CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
“CIA will continue to seek opportunities to share information with the American people consistent with our obligation to protect national security,” he added.
The move comes as part of the 2014 law which required officials to review documents seized in the raid before making declassified available to the public.
The latest release is the third of its kind since May 2015 in a series dubbed “Bin Laden’s bookshelf” by commentators.
The CIA did not release any files containing sensitive information or copyrighted material.
The archive also included the first-known adult images of Hamza bin Laden and documents about al Qaeda’s relationship with Iran.
The latest release comes just days after President Donald Trump’s administration decided to release files linked to the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Trump said the White House will release all files “other than the names and addresses of any mentioned person who is still living.”
