This is definitely promising. The CIA said Tuesday that it has been able to glean new leads every hour from the massive cache of intelligence snatched from Osama bin Laden’s compound during the raid that killed him. A U.S. official said the SEAL team spent “at least half” of the 40 minutes on the ground at bin Laden’s compound gathering intelligence, because the target was killed “relatively early” in the operation. A task force has been working around-the-clock analyzing the data—videos and more than 220 million pages of text—and has found leads on everything from other terrorist leaders to how bin Laden communicated with al Qaeda.
