WashPo Says Bin Laden Docs Will Soon be Public

David Ignatius states in Washington Post piece called "The bin Laden plot to kill President Obama" that he was "given an exclusive look" at some of the "documents taken from bin Laden's compound by U.S. forces on May 2, the night he was killed" by "a senior administration official."

Ignatius then goes on to state that the documents "have been declassified and will be available soon to the public in their original Arabic texts and translations."  Unclear if this is referring only to the specific documents relevant to a supposed plot against the President that are the subject of his article or the larger collection of seized bin Laden documents, but this is significant news either way.
