Just Before Leaving, Obama Hid The Bin Laden Documents

Something’s missing from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and it begs the question, what did the Obama Administration hide from the documents seized in the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in May 2011?

In the last 24 hours that Barack Obama was president, as The Weekly Standard reports, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) posted more of the documents captured in bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The ODNI stated that these 49 documents would be the last released; the statement was titled, "Closing the Book on Bin Laden: Intelligence Community Releases the Final Abbottabad Documents.”

Here’s where it gets suspicious: the ODNI website states that the ODNI released a total of 571 documents.

But as the Standard notes, “For years, the Obama administration told the American people that the haul from the bin Laden compound was massive and important. In an interview on Meet the Press just days after the raid, Barack Obama's national security adviser, Thomas Donilon, said, “First of all, as you know, the forces when they went in Sunday night obviously took out Osama bin Laden, but also gathered up all the material that they could for exploitation by intelligence services , first point. Second is the scale of what we've got here. This is the largest cache of intelligence derived from the scene of any single terrorist. It's about the size of a small college library.”

A senior military intelligence official who briefed reporters at the Pentagon on May 7, 2011, said: "As a result of the raid, we've acquired the single largest collection of senior terrorist materials ever."

The Standard adds, “Sources who have described the cache to THE WEEKLY STANDARD over the years have claimed that the number of captured documents, including even extraneous materials and duplicates, totals more than 1 million.”
