Looks like someone was preparing to get his flee on before his wig was split:

Osama bin Laden had 500 Euros in cash and two telephone numbers sewn into his clothing when he was killed, CBS News has confirmed. The news was first reported by Politico Wednesday. It was unclear whether the money was denominated in Euros or another currency, but the revelation seems to indicate that the al Qaeda leader was prepared to flee in the event of a raid like the U.S. military strike in which he was killed on Sunday.

The details come from officials who attended a classified intelligence briefing on Capitol Hill.

“CIA Director Leon Panetta told lawmakers about the items found in bin Laden’s clothing in response to a question about why he wasn’t guarded by more security personnel at his relatively luxurious home in a military town north of Islamabad,” Politico reported. “The answer, according to one source who attended the briefing: Bin Laden believed ‘his network was strong enough he’d get a heads-up’ before any U.S. strike against him.”
