Osama bin Laden 'may have sent coded messages hidden in PORN videos to secretly communicate with Al-Qaeda'

AL-QAEDA founder Osama bin Laden may have communicated with terrorists by encoding messages into porn videos, claims a new documentary.

The eyebrow raising claim is part of a fascinating new National Geographic special, titled Bin laden's Hard Drive, which analyses and reveals the digital materials recovered in his compound.

The 9/11 mastermind was killed in his terorrist compound. Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 2, 2011, by U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six in an overnight raid.

And when there, US commandos discovered a trove of smut lurking in his possession.

The revelation bin Laden was in possession of porno flicks was first reported by Reuters in 2011.

The 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.

Bin Laden didn’t have internet at his compound or a computer but he did have a number of TVs.

Materials carted away from the compound by US forces included digital thumb drives.

Officials believe these drives may have been a principal means by which couriers carried electronic messages to and from the al Qaeda leader.

While officials have declined to release the videos publicly, or describe what they contained, the collection was said to be "fairly extensive".

The documentary also reveals the terrorist leaders computers also contained hundreds of news reports and documentaries about himself.

They also found multiple takes of pre-recorded speeches in which he demanded perfection.

CNN security analyst Peter Bergen, who presents the forthcoming special, was the first western journalist to interview bin Laden on TV.

Bergen says: "Exploring these hard drives, it’s clear that digital information can say a lot. Osama bin Laden’s files left behind an imprint of a complex man, responsible for the murder of thousands of people.

"History will remember him for that but, in order to cut through the perception of this ascetic in a cave on a holy crusade, it’s important for us to see how he crafted the videos that went out to his followers.

"Understanding him is vital in order to combat other potential bin Ladens in the future."

The new doc comes as bin Laden's niece claimed Donald Trump is the only president who can prevent another 9/11 attack on America.

Noor Bin Ladin, who is an avid Trump supporter despite living in Switzerland – said she has backed the president since he announced his bid for the White House in 2015.

Bin Laden's Hard Drive will premeiere on National Geographic on Thursday, September 10.
