On the one-year anniversary of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden being killed by SEAL Team Six members, new details are coming forward about the information found on computers and hard drives recovered from the Pakistan compound, including plans to assassinate President Barrak Obama and American military commander David Petraeus.

NBC News is reporting after being briefed on the materials recovered during the raid last year against Bin Laden’s suspected hideout by counter terrorism officials, that SEAL team members recovered 5 computers, 10 hard drives and more than 100 other storage devices such as DVD’s and thumb drives containing 10,000 to 15,000 documents and between 15,000 and 25,000 video’s.

Officials say most of the files were duplicates, but revealed that Bin Laden had plans to kill the President and wanted to mount another 9/11 type attack on the U.S.

Counter terrorism official, Michael Leiter explains after having to go into hiding and having limited resources these plans were more of a “wish list” than anything by Bin Laden.

The documents were said to contain no actual mapped out plans on how to carry out the attacks, but rather were orders to subordinates to carry them out. He had also ordered that bombing’s take place of Western mass transit outlets and tankers carrying goods.

An NBC produced documentary on the Bin Laden compound raid and information recovered is set to air on the Discovery Channel on Tuesday at 10pm EST. and will be called “Inside bin Laden’s Lair.”
