The world now has access to what happened the day that Osama bin Laden was killed, including his last words.

Thursday, the Army's Combating Terrorism Center released documents seized last year in the raid on bin Laden's compound.

According to the White House, over 6,000 documents were seized from bin Laden's compound. They reveal how defeated bin Laden and al Qaeda felt in the days leading up to his death.

The documents are made up of bin Laden's diary and contacts with other known terrorists. In them, bin Laden admits that he has suffered "disaster after disaster," and that he knows a large portion of Muslims around the world no longer trust al Qaeda.

Bin Laden even reveals that he considered changing the name of the terrorist group.

The Obama administration has come under fire from Republicans, who say the president is using his decision to order the raid that killed bin Laden as an argument for his own re-election.

The documents were made available to the public beginning at 7 a.m. MST. Click here to go that website.
