West Point to display Bin Laden trove
WASHINGTON - April 30, 2012 (WPVI) -- U.S. officials say the public will soon be able to read some of Osama bin Laden's last written or typed words on line.
White House counterterrorism chief John Brennan says some of the declassified documents will be posted online by the U.S. Army's Combating Terrorism Center at West Point military academy this week.
The documents were gathered by Navy SEALs from bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on May 2 last year.
The trove included correspondence between the terror leader and affiliates, and his own hand-written diary.
Brennan says America is safer with bin Laden gone, along with other key leaders killed after the raid.
He quoted bin Laden himself, who wrote that the group would not survive with its experienced chiefs being removed faster than he could replace them.
