(National Journal/Atlantic Wire/AOL News) ~ Ever since the word got out of a supposedly large stash of porn magazines and video was found in Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistani compound, the adult industry trade publication XBIZ has been trying to find out exactly what movies were in the collection.

A lawsuit, filed under the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch demands that President Obama release photos of Bin Laden has gained an unlikely ally from the porn business. XBIZ’s Rhett Pardon wondered, “will we ever find out the studios, video titles, directors or genres of the films Bid Laden’s alleged to have possessed? The answer is maybe.” The “maybe” depends on how successful Judicial Watch’s lawsuit which, according to the National Journal, requests “all photographs and/or video” seized from Bin Laden’s compound during the covert raid. “If the FOIA lawsuit is granted, nearly all information relative to Bid Laden’s porn stash, as well as all other details of his compound and belongings, could be released,” Pardon said.

Judicial Watch has filed two FOIA requests to the Department of Defense, according to the Atlantic Wire. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton believes Obama’s desire to not “spike the football” is not a strong reason to withhold basic information gathered on this historic mission. Scott Hodes, a former Justice Department lawyer in the office of information and privacy, believe Judicial Watch’s suit runs the risk of being swiftly dismissed.

There’s also the possibility that Bin Laden was watching the performance of porn stars, which has drawn the interest of actresses like Amber Peach. “I have no interest in, say, seeing Bin Laden’s death photo, but I have a morbid curiosity in knowing what films he was watching,” Peach said, “I’d like to know if he watched older or newer films, and even if I was in any of the films.” Peach wouldn’t speculate on what genres the terrorist leader watched, but isn’t surprised that he watched porn. “It’s typical that hardcore religious leaders are often watching in porn in private,” she said. Actress Joanna Angel, owner of Burning Angel Productions which specializes in alt-porn featuring punkish women with tattoos, is also curious although she doubts Bin Laden was a fan of her work. “I have a feeling he wasn’t watching my films,” she said. “Although I’d be oddly flattered if he was. You see, I own my own company, and it’s small. So to know I could reach someone without an internet connection in Pakistan would mean I was really good at marketing.”
