The thing to do is to take the computer itself. Mostly laptops nowadays. If the US says what they have taken - Pakis will know what might have been there and will start covering tracks
PC Hard drive - 30 secs. You dont even need a screw driver. There is a single screw you turn with your hand sticking out prominently in the back of the along the case, slide the cover of the case out, reach in , disconnect the power cord, disconnect the SATA cord (these are snap in cords, just snap out), the hard disk slides out into your hand (it is not fixed to the computer case with screws, just held in rails and slides out).
That is how I do it in my computer at home. It is a standard ATX case.
Lap top - 10 seconds. Flip it over, take a Philips screwdriver , unscrew the retaining screw and slide the hard drive out. You dont need to open the case at all!. Similar to removing battery in a laptop (diff is usually with a hard drive, there is a screw to remove, with battery , it just slides out).
There were visuals on TV with a PC with hard disk taken out, all documents, DVDs, CD etc definitely carted out and the CIA going over everything with a fine tooth comb.
They will know every thing to a fine detail such as who, where, when and how in every place in every country that had a contact however fleeting and remote with the Al-keeda and affiliates. Now with the Pakis being so incestous with Al-keeda, they will know exactly what did whom and when with the Al-keeda and how the Pakis double crossed and played well, Paki in each turn.
The Pakis are truly shafted here. No escape. Kiyani will be quaking, so will Musharraf. It was under their watch as ISI chief and Pres that most of that double dealing and Pakiness happened and the records from Bin Laden's lair will give fine grained details. There is going to be hell to pay for that soon. Expect massive GUBOing from now. Musharraf is a goner.Expect him to be extradited back to Pakiland and Dus Percenti urged to start proceedings against him as chief conspirator in Bhutto Motorham's case and a quick trial and execution.
Kiyani as long as he leads Gubo sessions will be allowed to linger around and then sent to the grinder.
