The U.S. government on Wednesday released dozens of documents recovered from the special operations raid that killed Osama bin Laden four years ago. The now declassified documents shed new light on the mindset of Al-Qaeda’s founder, his debates over tactics, his anxiety over Western spying and his fixation with the group’s media image. Among other things, they include correspondences from bin Laden, think tank reports, software and technical manuals for computer programs, and Arabic-language letters to bin Laden’s apparent associates, along with 39 English-language books in which the terror leader apparently took interest. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence called the material “Bin Laden’s Bookshelf”.

As the Memorial Day weekend approaches, the White House, FBI Director James Comey and others are concerned about a potential terrorist attack on U.S. soil. The government has increased security at military bases and airports and has notified local law enforcement to be on alert at shopping malls and other places where the public congregates. The holiday weekend opens up many potential “soft” targets with Memorial Day gatherings. Brad will discuss the seriousness of this threat and what should you do if you are going to the Mall or a Memorial Day celebration.

President Obama will speed up the training and equipping of Sunni tribal fighters in an effort to erase gains made by ISIS. The decision comes in the wake of the stinging fall of the Iraqi city of Ramadi to the terror group, and came as the president convened more than two dozen members of his National Security Council to discuss the situation. Meanwhile, on the home front, presidential hopeful Rand Paul, as of this writing, is in the middle of filibustering the renewal of the Patriot Act, which provides the authorities for the NSA’s controversial bulk collection of American phone records. Those provisions are set to expire on June 1st. There was no word his campaign on how long the filibuster will last.

During a trip to Camden, NJ, on Monday to announce new steps to improve effective policing, the President made a surprise announcement of new restrictions to the flow of some types of military equipment from the armed forces to police. Tracked armored vehicles, bayonets and grenade launchers are among the equipment that the federal government will no longer transfer to local law enforcement. Other equipment like tactical vehicles and riot gear will only be transferred if police provide assurances that it will be used responsibly. The White House had suggested last year that the program to provide military-style equipment would not change.
