The United States Central Intelligence Agency released a cache of files found on Osama Bin Laden's personal computer taken from the deadly 2011 raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Among the 321 gigabytes of files found on his computer, of which many were related to his operations for Al Qaeda, were copyrighted materials the CIA could not republish. These included several animated movies, TV shows, as well as a copy of Final Fantasy VII.
The CIA withheld several files containing copyrighted data (among files that were either related to national security, or deemed offensive). However, among the films, TV shows, and video games found on Bin Laden's computer, was a copy of the Square-Enix JRPG Final Fantasy VII. It is one of the many copyrighted entertainment files found on Bin Laden's computer alongside such films as Antz, Cars, The Three Musketeers, and Resident Evil.
This isn't the first time the government revealed that Bin Laden was in some ways a gamer either.
The U.S. Government previously declassified several documents from the 2011 raid back in 2015. Those documents revealed that residents within the safe houses were playing video games like Delta Force: Xtreme 2.
However, there's a far cry between Delta Force: Xtreme 2, a first-person shooter from NovaLogic, to Square-Enix's Final Fantasy VII.
