Osama Bin Laden’s porn collection will be kept secret by the CIA as the agency is prohibited from revealing “obscene matter.”

CIA director Mike Pompeo has revealed the pornography stash will remain a secret while other documents recovered during the raid that killed Bin Laden is being released to the public.

“There’s some pornography, there’s some copyrighted material. Everything other than those items will be released in the weeks ahead,” Pompeo explained to Fox News on Monday.

During the deadly raid in 2011, US Navy SEALs recovered documents from the compound of Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The documents included family letters, notes on Al-Qaeda operations and documents on Islamic history.

Pompeo said the documents would have “lots of hands touching them and making good judgments about how to make sure that we don’t have a 9/11, that we don’t have this kind of risk again.”

The website BroBible requested the porn collection be released in 2015 under a Freedom of Information Act request stating I’m a man. I can handle knowing what kind of porn Osama Bin Laden watched. Ain’t gonna make me like him more, ain’t gonna make me hate him less.”

The request was denied, however, as the CIA stated the agency could not mail “obscene matter.”

Pompeo issued a warning to Al-Qaeda leadership during his appearance on Fox News.

“If I were them, I’d count my days,” he said. “The enemy gets a choice about whether this is over, and today, they have not concluded that they’re defeated.”

Pompeo said the leadership of Al-Qaeda was much weaker than it was in 2001 but groups like ISIS and Ansar al Sharia continue to pose a threat.

“The capacity to do a complex attack in the U.S. is diminished,” he explained. “[But] the threat here in the U.S. of these localized actors… working alongside ISIS figures remains.”
