Iran accuses Central Intelligence Agency of spreading fake news through Bin Laden files

The CIA's release of documents seized during the 2011 raid that killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden appears to bolster US claims that Iran and Hezbollah supported the militant network leading up to the September 11 terror attacks.

Almost half a million files found on the computer seized in the May 2, 2011 American commando raid on his hideout at Abbottabad were released by the Central Intelligence Agency on Wednesday. The news was published by The Times of India on 15 November 2009.

Laden also saved on his computer another PTI article, titled 'India to send magistrate to U.S. to record Headley's statement'.

The documents revealed that Laden closely followed news related to the arrest of Lashkar-e-Taiba operative Headley and was a regular reader of some of the top Indian publications. A February 2009 article about "Pakistani Kashmiri militants now fighting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces" was also found.

Paytm Inbox feature lets users chat and send or receive money
Known as the Paytm Inbox , this app allows you to chat with contacts, initiate group chats, and send and receive money. The e-commerce brand based out of Delhi NCR, India Paytm is a consumer brand of parent company One97 Communications.

The cache also contains a 19-page report on ties between Al-Qaeda and Iran, which is speculated to be the main story in the USA from the CIA's release of the files.

While the files included Al-Qaeda correspondence, propaganda documents, draft materials, video files and journal entries, Newsweek reports that games like Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Super Mario Bros, Final Fantasy VII and a bunch of Dragon Ball Z titles were included in the mix.

However, ironically, the petrodollars of Saudi Arabia and its allies, like Egypt and the UAE, funded attacks in the past by major terrorist groups, including Al-Qaeda, against the United States and other western countries over the past couple of decades.

The CIA said the information remaining in the Abbottabad collection that has not been released publicly includes materials that are sensitive such that their release would directly damage efforts to keep the nation secure.
