U.S. to release bin Laden files

A senior White House official said on Monday that the United States will release documents seized from the compound of al-Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, on the eve of the anniversary of his death, Xinhua reported.

John Brennan, President Barack Obama's homeland security and counterterrorism adviser, said some of the documents seized at bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, will be published online by West Point's Combating Terrorism Center this week. The documents were never made public before.

The Obama administration is trumping up the killing of bin Laden as the anniversary approaches, and it could be a campaign asset for the president who is seeking reelection.
