Stratfor Email Leak: Osama bin Laden Not Buried at Sea?
Osama bin Laden's Body Flown to Maryland, According to Leaked Stratfor Email
According to the Stratfor emails leaked by WikiLeaks, Osama bin Laden's body may not have been buried at sea after all. This would be yet another aspect of the Osama bin Laden operation that turned out not to match the official version.
Fred Burton Stratfor's VP of intelligence, wrote to a colleague at 5.51am on May 2: “Body bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane. Than [sic] onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda.” In a separate email, Burton wrote, "Reportedly, we took the body with us. Thank goodness."
Burton didn't think the secrecy surrounding the treatment of Osama bin Laden's body was wise, writing, "The US Govt needs to make body pics available like the [Mexican cartels] do, with OBL's pants pulled down, to shout down the lunatics like Alex Jones and Glenn Beck".
A comparison was made to how Nazi war criminal Adolph Eichmann was handled after World War II: he was seen alive before and during his trial, so his cremation left no room for doubt.
Eichmann was seen alive for many months on trial before being sentenced
to death and executed. No one wanted a monument to him so they cremated
him. But i dont know anyone who claimed he wasnt [Eichmann]. No comparison
with suddenly burying him at sea without any chance to view him which i
Stratfor is a security consultancy company with close ties to the US government. The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology closed down shortly after bin Laden's death. Conspiracy theorists are going to have a field day with this.
Anonymous, which has long supported Julian Assange, was allegedly behind the Stratfor hack which resulted in these leaked emails: over five million emails, along with all sorts of other sensitive and compromising data was exposed in the hack.
Stratfor is covering its collective ass by claiming that the emails "may have been forged or altered", though WikiLeaks has no history of such activity. Indeed, the accuracy of the WikiLeaks dumps is what makes the group so widely hated by world governments, particularly that of the US.
