Home movies taken from Osama bin Laden's hideout show the terrorist leader watching news coverage of himself on television.
The videos were seized by Navy SEALs after bin Laden was killed
Monday. They were shown to reporters Saturday by intelligence
The five movies offer the first public glimpse at bin Laden's
life behind the walls of his compound in suburban Pakistan. The
government-selected clips also provide an opportunity for the U.S.
to paint bin Laden in an unflattering light to his supporters. They
video include outtakes of his propaganda films and, taken together,
portray him as someone obsessed with his own image and how he is
portrayed to the world.
