Politico is reporting that the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound over the weekend has resulted in the seizure of several computer hard drives and other data storage devices.

An official referred to the find as “the mother lode of intelligence,” adding, “It’s going to be great even if only 10 percent of it is actionable.”

The material from the data storage devices is apparently being scoured by a team numbering in the hundreds at an undisclosed location somewhere in Afghanistan, according to Politico.

The official posed the same question that’s likely on plenty of other people’s minds: “Can you imagine what’s on Osama bin Laden’s hard drive?”
