    In this Sept. 11, 2008 photo provided by the Department of Defense and Retired Marine Col. John Folsom, Smoke the Donkey takes part in a Freedom Walk event at Camp Taqaddum, Iraq. It took 37 days and a group of determined animal-lovers, but the donkey from Iraq is now a U.S. resident. Smoke The Donkey, who became the friend and mascot of a group of U.S. Marines living in Iraq?s Anbar Province nearly three years ago, arrived in New York this week aboard a cargo jet from Turkey. After being quarantined for two days he was released Saturday and began road trip to Omaha, Nebraska, where he is destined to become a therapy animal. (AP Photo/Department of Defense)

    FILE - In this undated image taken from video released by the U.S. Department of Defense May 7, 2011, a man identified by the U.S. government as Osama bin Laden watches television. The latest intelligence from the wealth of material found at bin Laden's last hideout paints a complicated picture of the fugitive, surrounded by the din of his multiple families within walls that were both his sanctuary and prison. And he was more involved in trying to plan al-Qaida's post-911 operations than they had thought possible for a man in perpetual hiding. (AP Photo/Department of Defense, File)
