BROOKLYN - Declassified documents seized last year from Osama bin Laden's compound have now been published online.

Thousands of documents, audio recordings and videos were seized by the military when the terrorist leader was killed last May. Some of the material will remain confidential for security reasons, but 17 items have been published online by West Point.

West Point officials deemed it an appropriate time to publish them, due to "renewed interest" on the first anniversary of bin Laden's death.
