How Bin Laden Used Technology To Evade Capture

How did the most-wanted Al-Qaeda leader escape for over nine years? It may not be as complicated as one might think. United States officials gathered almost one hundred USB memory drives from Osama Bin Laden’s hideout on the day of the capture. Bin Laden would use a thumb drive whenever he needed to exchange an e-mail with the outside world.

He would write the e-mail message on his computer, unhooked to any internet connection, transfer the e-mail to a USB drive, and send the USB drive along with the courier to a distant Internet Cafe to be sent or distributed.

Samsung Receives Bomb Scare After Bin Laden’s Death

Shortly after the main news stations had reported on the death of Bin Laden, Samsung Electronics received a bomb threat. The threat was made to the main branch of Samsung in Seoul, Korea. Interestingly enough, the Canadian division of Samsung also received a similar threat. The threat to Samsung in Korea also threatened other targets around Seoul. The targets listed in the the threat were embassies of Turkey, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Oman, Bahrain, Jordan, Syria and Egypt. All the embassies immediately raised security according to reports.
