U.S. analyzing more al Qaeda videos

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush told congressional leaders Tuesday additional videotapes were among material gathered from al Qaeda installations in Afghanistan.

The tapes were being viewed and analyzed by U.S. investigative and intelligence agencies, he said.

"We don't know what they are, just that some have been gathered," a senior administration official told CNN.

Another official said, "As we go through these places, known al Qaeda and Taliban facilities, we are scooping up everything that looks like it might be helpful and then people will review it and see if it is in fact helpful."

Two participants in the meeting said there was no indication the tapes were viewed to be as significant as the recently released videotape that showed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden having a dinner conversation about the September 11 attacks.

"That remains to be seen -- it was just a passing reference to one of the many things going on, and it was mentioned that more videotapes have been found and were going to be analyzed," one participant said.

The participants said Bush also told congressional leaders the United States does not know for certain where bin Laden is.
