On Wednesday, the CIA released a trove of documents recovered from the 2011 raid on Osama Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, including the former Al Qaeda leader's personal journal.

The CIA said it released the documents in "an effort to further enhance public understanding" of Al Qaeda, but the agency cautioned that they may contain disturbing, copy written, or adult content, and there "is no absolute guarantee that all malware has been removed."

Included in the CIA release are scans of Bin Laden's personal journal, videos, audio files, his correspondence, and hundreds of other documents almost exclusively in Arabic, which have been revealed an attempt to "provide material relevant to understanding the plans and workings of terrorist organizations."

The documents released on Wednesday represent just the latest portion released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Find the past documents here.

Bin Laden and Al Qaeda's other senior leadership orchestrated the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack that was the deadliest ever perpetrated on US soil.

In 2011, the US Navy's SEAL Team 6 raided his compound in darkness and killed Bin Laden on the scene.
