Pentagon releases tapes of Bin Laden in his hideout

I admit to being totally fascinated the last few days by accounts of the espionage work (the nearby house used to stakeout the compound, the methods used to track down the courier, etc.) that ultimately brought down Osama Bin Laden at his hideout in Pakistan.

The Pentagon today released videos allegedly seized in that raid. Here’s a 51 second montage of various scenes, including Bin Laden watching coverage of himself on television, that’s posted right now on the Washington Post website:

The WashPo has posted framegrabs from those videos here.
