A son-in-law of Osama bin Laden who served as an Al-Qaeda's spokesman was arrested in Turkey and brought to New York, according to government sources.

After a joint operation by Jordanian authorities and the FBI, Suleiman Abu Ghaith was captured and is expected to be brought to trial in federal court.

Abu Ghaith is being held in a detention facility in the New York area.

Initial public confirmation of Abu Ghaith's capture came from Rep. Peter King (R-NY), a former chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security.

Close to 19 months after the Osama Bin Laden death photo that rocked the world, new details have emerged regarding this terrorist's burial at sea.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, The Associated Press obtained numerous emails yesterday that - though heavily blacked out - indicated no sailors watched the water-based ceremony from the USS Carl Vinson and Islamic procedures were followed throughout.

Bin Laden, of course, was gunned down on May 1, 2011, by a Navy SEAL team at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

In the best-selling book No Easy Day, a retired Navy SEAL writing under an assumed name details the raid that killed Osama bin Laden last year in Pakistan.

He says that training for the assault took place in North Carolina. With that information, whistleblower site Cryptome (dot) org thinks it found that site:

  • Bin Laden Training Ground
  • Bin Laden Compound

The alleged Bin Laden training ground (left), and his actual compound.

After putting in the coordinates in Google Maps for the Harvey Point Defense Testing facility, purportedly a CIA training ground, only a clearing in a field was seen.

On Bing Maps, however, Cryptome says it was a different story.

U.S. officials Thursday released a small sampling of the so-called Osama bin Laden documents, papers captured when U.S. special operations forces killed the al-Qaida leader last year at his hideout in Pakistan.

They provide a little insight into the mind of a terrorist determined to wreak more havoc across the world, while keenly aware of the media and the perpetual threat of being hunted down and killed himself.

Some excerpts and condensed themes from the doctuments appear below:

Got Him!

ATTACK AMERICA: Bin Laden wanted al-Qaida to focus on the U.S. and not waste time and resources attacking other enemies such as Britain or trying to overthrow governments in the Muslim world.

“Even though we have the chance to attack the British, we should not waste our effort to do so but concentrate on defeating America, which will lead to defeating the others, God willing,” reads one letter.

“We want to cut this tree at the root. The problem is that our strength is limited, so our best way to cut the tree is to concentrate on sawing the trunk of the tree.”

Filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal are under fire for their upcoming film about the capture of Osama bin Laden, according to reports.

The New York Times' Maureen Dowd wrote Sunday that the Obama administration is granting the filmmakers access for the president's electoral benefit.

Barack Obama at the Podium

"The movie is scheduled to open on October 12, 2012 - perfectly timed to give a home-stretch boost to a campaign that has grown tougher," Dowd wrote.

Regardless of its purpose, Obama can't help but get a boost from the film.

Bigelow and Boal, who collaborated on Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker, disputed the suggestion Wednesday in a joint statement issued to EW.

"Our upcoming film about the decade long pursuit of Bin Laden has been in the works for many years and integrates the collective efforts of three administrations, including those of Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama," they say.

Slain Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden had a hit list, according to reports, with taking down U.S. President on September 11 of this year his #1 target.

Bin Laden's list called for a "celebration" of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by shooting down Air Force One with President Obama on board.

The terrorist mastermind, who was killed by U.S. forces May 1, also wanted Gen. David Petraeus dead and to crash a plane into a major sports event.

Obama, Osama

A "treasure trove" of documents discovered in Bin Laden's hideout revealed the plans the Al Qaeda chief was crafting to assassinate Barack Obama.

To accomplish that horrific goal, Bin Laden discussed attacking the president's plane or helicopter with a missile or grenade, officials told ABC News.

These machinations were part of U.S. intelligence discoveries that included the murderer's huge porn stash at his Abbottabad, Pakistan, compound.

Hacking. It's not just for Blake Lively nude photos anymore!

British intelligence agency MI6 recently hacked an Al-Qaeda online magazine, replacing bomb-making instructions with a recipe for cupcakes.

Seriously, this happened.

Cupcake

The joint venture by MI6 and the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters had agents insert into the magazine an encrypted version of “The Best Cupcakes in America,” published by the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Originally, the magazine had instructions on how to make pipe bombs, as well as articles by Osama bin Laden and deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri.

According to reports, America was onto this too, but a similar Pentagon operation was blocked by the CIA, who believed that the magazine was more valuable in its previous state as a source of intelligence.

Thus, the attack was launched from Britain instead. Delish!

Just because he enjoyed murdering innocent people and favored taking the planet back to barbaric, 7th Century fundamentalist rule doesn't mean Osama Bin Laden didn't like some of the finer things about modern Western Civilization.

Dude had a huge porn stash up in his Pakistan hideout!

A stash of pornography was found among the trove of evidence seized from bin Laden's Abbottabad compound by U.S. Navy SEALs, ABC News reports.

No word if Osama preferred girl-on-girl or anything in particular.

This wasn't just a closet dabbler, either. The existence of the pornography stash has been described as "huge" by U.S. officials who reportedly discovered it.

The material was found in a box in bin Laden's bedroom and included "electronically recorded videos." Hey, beats the heck out of Osama's home movies.

The discovery of the pornographic videos is just the latest in a steady stream of intel gleaned from the SEALs during the mission that killed bin Laden.

From invaluable intelligence on al Qaeda operations to embarrassing personal revelations about the 9/11 mastermind, there's all kinds of crap in there.

Some classified, some just NC-17.

The late Osama bin Laden can be seen watching TV coverage of himself and rehearsing some of his diatribes in home videos released by the Pentagon.

The U.S. Defense Department released the candid tapes - seized in the raid in which bin Laden was killed - of the slain al Qaeda leader without audio.

One clip shows a gray-bearded bin Laden sitting in front of a small color TV, remote control in hand, intently watching newscasts about himself ...

Other clips show bin Laden rehearsing for a rant against the U.S.

While the government says it will not release an Osama bin Laden death photo, and for good reason, it's haunting to see the terrorist in this setting.

It also provides insight into life at his crappy Abbottabad compound. You'd think with his millions, and apparent adoration for himself, Osama could at least cough up a few hundred bucks for a plasma screen and surround sound.

Nice to see OBL took time to dye his beard before appearing on Al-Jazeera, too. Gotta look good on camera, right? Who knew he was so vain.

If you were thinking about venturing over to stay at Osama bin Laden's compound in Pakistan, you might want to heed some warnings from fellow travelers.

While Osama's hideout in Bilal Town, Abbottabad, Pakistan, has the look of a quaint, countryside B&B, never make travel plans based on photos alone.

An average of the 1,284 reviews on Google Maps rates it 3 out of 5 stars. Could be worse, but might not be worth it, given the airfare and other factors.

Osama Bin Laden Compound

Excerpted recent reviews offer feedback such as:

  • Lousy room service; ordered fresh Maine lobster but instead got seals from Afghanistan. Fail. - Tozefs
  • Great spot to get away from the hustle & bustle - no cable or internet! - Keith
  • This is _THE_ place to pick up hotties if you are out to party in Abbottabad. The drinks are stiff, and the DJs spin it hot all night. - K-to-the-V
  • So not worth the 200 Million rupees! Do not waste your money. - TS
  • When I set up the reservation, they promised me peace and quiet. I get there and there are reporters swarming all over the place, along with about a thousand cops. I just kept driving. - Ed
  • This delightful, modestly fortified B&B on the outskirts of Abbottabad features a convenient helicopter landing area - easy access for on-the-go tourists. High walls for squash/racquetball practice and reduced shrapnel damage. - Allen

Other drawbacks include lack of central A/C, tapped phones and the chance that a team of elite Navy Seals will infiltrate the premises and assassinate you.
