"Would you like to see Osama bin Laden's house?"
It's not an offer many reporters would turn down. So on a recent trip to Afghanistan, ABC News got a look at the compound where the terror leader lived more than a decade ago when al Qaeda was establishing itself in the country.
The offer to visit came from Dr. Dave Warner, who is part of what he calls "the nerd surge" in Afghanistan -- volunteers traveling on their own dime to provide medical help, education and basic services for ordinary Afghans.
One of Warner's projects is a Jalalabad school that serves more than 3,800 Afghan children and happens to be less than half a mile from bin Laden's former compound.
