The U.S. government has released a list of documents recovered during the 2011 raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, which includes works by Noam Chomsky and Bob Woodward.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a list of non-classified, English-language material found in and around the compound on Wednesday, along with a second selection of now-declassified documents.

The release of the documents came after a review mandated by the 2014 Intelligence Authorization Act, Reuters reported Wednesday.

The treasure trove of material released by ODNI, titled “Bin Laden’s Bookshelf,” includes more than 400 books, magazines, letters and other news articles.

Some of the books found in the terror mastermind’s compound include:

• “Obama’s Wars,” by Bob Woodward

• “Hegemony or Survival: America’s Quest for Global Dominance,” by Noam Chomsky

• “New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11,” by David Ray Griffin

• “Bloodlines of the Illuminati,” by Fritz Springmeier

• “The U.S. and Vietnam 1787-1941,” by Robert Hopkins Miller

“It is in the interest of the American public for citizens, academics, journalists and historians to have the opportunity to read and understand bin Laden’s documents,” U.S. House of Representatives intelligence committee Chairman Devin Nunes said in a statement, Reuters reported.

More than 3,000 people died on Sept. 11, 2001, after a series of attacks on the U.S. orchestrated by bin Laden.
