WASHINGTON (AP) - Navy SEALs who killed the world's most-wanted terrorist seized a trove of al-Qaida documents during the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound.
The CIA is already poring over confiscated hard drives, DVDs and other documents.
The agency is looking for inside information on al-Qaida, including clues that might lead to his presumed successor, Egyptian Ayman al-Zawahri.
Al-Qaida under al-Zawahri would likely be further radicalized, unleashing a new wave of attacks to avenge bin Laden's killing by U.S. troops in Pakistan.
Al-Zawahri's extremist views and his readiness to use deadly violence are beyond doubt.
