Osama bin Laden files contain an odd Jennifer Lopez audio clip
On Wednesday, the CIA released the fourth stage of reviewed documents from the May 2011 raid of Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. Different from other information, these 470,000 documents include his personal journal and computer files—including audio downloads.
One clip in particular, simply titled “JeniferLopez,” has us puzzled on his musical taste, as well as his general interests.
The two-second file plays: ” I want to welcome you to JenniferLopez.com,” spoken in J.Lo’s voice, which can be listened to here:
No other Lopez files appear to have been on his computer. The audio is grainy and reminiscent of celebrity websites from the late ’90s. It has an America Online-era, “you’ve got mail” ring to it. According to the Way Back Machine, Jennifer Lopez’s website was launched on Oct. 2, 1999.
It should be noted that others in his circle reportedly had access to bin Laden’s personal computer, so we can not conclusively say that bin Laden was a J. Lo superfan. But while we wait for more hidden gold to emerge from his files, this clip should keep us entertained in the mean time.
