In fear of the laptop battery running down, US Forces immediately brought in two computer forensic agents took photographs of the contents on the laptop’s display and later performed a complete analysis of its contents.
“We figure he was making an attempt to use his computer when we raided the basement.”, replied John Cooper, one of the forensic analysis, “This could explain why he hesitated and later surrendered without a fight.” Initial screenshots of the data were leaked to the media shortly thereafter, and have been made available on the Internet. The photos appear on the right.
While the forensic analysts were very certain that the entire laptop’s contents could be retrieved, at least one was notably distressed about the information being leaked. “We’re not sure what this means yet. There’s still a lot of data to look at. Our biggest concern is that this may affect computer security in some way.”
