WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials say the public will soon be able to read some of Osama bin Laden's last written or typed words - made available by the U.S. Army's Combating Terrorism Center at West Point military academy this week.
Navy SEALs gathered the documents when they raided bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on May 2 last year.
The trove included correspondence between the terror leader and his far flung affiliates, and a diary written in bin Laden's own hand.
Intelligence officials say the trove shows how the terror group works and evidence that bin Laden was helping plot attacks on American targets.
The officials spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to speak publicly. It was unclear Monday whether the documents would be available online or at a library.
