Bin Laden data seized will increase US terror watch lists

May 4, 2011 18:43

WASHINGTON - The treasure trove of information seized from al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden's compound will likely lead to adding more names to US terrorism watch lists, US Attorney General Eric Holder said on Wednesday.

"My guess is that we probably will," Holder told the Senate Judiciary Committee in response to a question about whether the information taken during the operation in Pakistan would mean more names would be put on watch lists and the no-fly list.

Holder told the committee that interagency teams from the CIA, Justice Department and other intelligence agencies are reviewing the material to glean any new information and make decisions about what to do with it.
