Osama Bin Laden Kept 'Natural Viagra' and other Bin Laden News

Osama Bin Laden kept "natural Viagra" next to his bed, along with blood pressure and ulcer medications. Did he fall victim to one of those emails? Or was he just buying packets of "Horny Goat Weed" from the Abbotabad gas station?

Well, neither, apparently: The 'natural viagra' was, in fact avena syrup, which is used, according to MSNBC, either as "an artificial sweetener... for a sour stomach," or as a, you know, sex drug. (MSNBC has more about Bin Laden's medicine cabine, if you are fascinated by terrorist cough syrups.)

More Bin Laden news:

  • President Obama says he believes that Bin Laden had "some sort of support network" in Pakistan, though he doesn't know who, specifically, was part of that network, nor if the government or military were involved.
  • Intelligence officials said there was a "50-50 chance" that Bin Laden was in the Abbotabad compound when Obama ordered the raid last week. So think about it this way: The guy who made the "Obama Got Osama" t-shirts could very well have just been some chump, instead of totally rich.
  • According to an NBC poll, 64 percent of the American public supported Obama's decision not to release the photos of Bin Laden's body.
  • Unsurprisingly, the AP has filed a Freedom of Information Act request for photographs and video taken during the raid.
