In total, 39 English language books were listed on a broad range of subjects – from a Handbook of International Law to an encyclopedic work on mystical religions called The Secret Teachings of All Ages.

Bin Laden also had the work of 9/11 conspiracy theorists including the saved, single web page of an article titled, ‘Website Claims Steve Jackson Games Foretold 9/11’.

Many of the titles on bin Laden’s shelves related to America’s role as a military superpower in the modern world.

‘Unfinished Business, U.S. Overseas Military Presence in the 21st Century’ by Michael O’Hanlon was found at the property along with ‘Rogue State: A Guide to the World’s Only Superpower’ by William Blum; and New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 by David Ray Griffin.

He also had 75 publicly available U.S. government documents focusing on al Qaeda, the cost of Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Global War on Terror Operations since 9/11 and reports on nuclear energy in Syria and Iran.
