No Bins for Bin Laden

Among the deluge of info about the assassination of Osama Bin Laden was this factoid: One of the reasons intelligence agents initially became suspicious of the compound where Bin Laden was holed up was that no trash ever left its walls (presumably to prevent any identifying material from slipping out). Indeed, an illustration of the compound identifies the area where trash was burned on site.

But don't take my word for it. Stephen Colbert's got it covered.
