There are many questions about Osama bin Laden that people might want to have answered, and his adult movie preferences appear to be one of them. However, the CIA would not reveal this particular detail to anyone, no matter how hard they might try.

According to previous reports, Bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad contained a “fairly extensive” stash of porn, and one man took it upon him self to publicly enquire about its contents.

David Covvuci filed a FOIA request on behalf of BroBible, The Washington Post reports, asking for specific details about Bin Laden’s porn cravings.

“I’m a man,” he wrote in late May. “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.”

“I’m just interested is all. I’ve filed a FOIA request for this information and I will keep you posted when I hear back from the CIA.”

Unsurprisingly, the CIA had to respond, as Covvuci asked the question under the Freedom on Information Act, a bill enacted in 1966 that lets any U.S. citizen ask the government for official information. But the agency found a loophole to avoid actually having to provide an actual answer.

“With regard to the pornographic material Osama Bin Laden had in his possession at the time of his death, responsive records, should they exist, would be contained in the operational files. The CIA Information Act, 50 U.S.C 431, as amended, exempts CIA operational files from search, review, publication, and disclosure requirements of the FOIA. To the extent that this material exists, the CIA would be prohibited by 18 USC Section 1461 from mailing obscene matter,” the agency wrote.

So there you have it, Bin Laden’s adult movie collection will remain a closely guarded secret for the time being.
