It is being reported that the body of Bin Laden was not buried at sea. Thanks to the release of emails by Wikileaks from the hacked Statfor are suggesting just that.
At the time of him being killed, it was said that there were photos of a dead Bin Laden but that they wouldn’t be released. We asked why? And yes, we are still asking why.
But with the information that is being released from Wikileaks, there is some confusion. Some of the “exchanges” don’t add up.
The story via Telegraph:
Fred Burton, vice president for intelligence at Stratfor, wrote to a colleague at 5.51am on May 2, the day the al-Qaeda leader was killed, saying: “Body bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane. Than [sic] onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda.”
An earlier email from Burton to colleagues stated: “Reportedly, we took the body with us. Thank goodness.”
However, in his last communication on the subject with George Friedman, Stratfor’s chief executive, at 3.10pm, Mr Burton wrote: “: “Down and dirty done, He already sleeps with the fish…”
The email was among a trove of five million messages hacked from the firm’s servers by the Anonymous group and placed on the Internet by WikiLeaks.
