Drudge headline- where did it go?
03-06-12 | Me

Posted on 03/06/2012 7:39:13 AM PST by Kevin in California

Just about an hour and a half ago, there was a headline on Drudge regarding a Wikileak leak that Bin Laden wasn't not buried at sea.

Now, there is nothing on Drudge anymore.

Guess ole Matt must have gotten a call from "O" and the fellas telling him to take it down or else...hmmmm

The headline actually linked to an article at Stratfor. I don’t know what the Wikileak connection was.

It appears Stratfor has also yanked the article. Stratfor was very specific with where the body ultimately ended up, but it’s now all disappeared.

I think trolls are out there today posting false stories. Earlier a thread was pulled about supposed sexual harassment cases against obama. I don’t trust the left at all. The media could use this against conservatives.

Sorry.

I have not been to the Drudge web site since the day he posted a dozen or more hit pieces about Newt.

I am not much of a Newt fan but I realized he was in the tank for Romney and would even emulate the leftist press to advance his personal politics.

From business Insider

LEAKED STRATFOR EMAILS: Analysts Didn't Believe Bin Laden Was Buried At Sea

.. Directors of the private U.S. security firm Stratfor did not believe that Osama bin Laden was buried at sea, according to Stratfor emails leaked by WikiLeaks.

At 5:26 a.m. on May 2, the morning after Barack Obama announced the successful raid on bin Laden's Abbottabad compound, Stratfor CEO George Friedman sent an email with the subject "[alpha] OBL" that said:

Reportedly, we took the body with us. Thank goodness...

...Fred Burton, Stratfor's vice president for intelligence, followed that up at 5:51 a.m. with an email titled "[alpha] Body bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane" that said:

Than [sic] onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda.

At 1:36 p.m. Burton replied to a thread named "Re: OBL's corpse" with the message:

Body is Dover bound, should be here by now.

Drudge linked 2 articles:

http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/foreign-policy/11092-leaked-emails-suggest-bin-laden-not-buried-at-sea

Even when he replaces a major headline with a new one, he will lower the earlier headline into one of his three columns of headlines.

In this case, he just wiped it off of his site.

One would think that this story would really stir up the raghead rage. If handling a koran inappropriately is such a big deal, wouldn't it be a bigger deal if some holy warrior's carcass was handled inappropriately?

Someone should send a link to this story, to every middle east news outlet.

In my opinion that article put Bethesda in danger from a nutbag suicide bomber. I am glad its ‘down’. I have a family member working at the NSA...though not that close to Bethesda...don’t like him near danger.

I has read the link while it was up. I am guessing they took it down because the link only went to a Stratfor guy's email *speculating* that he didn't think Bin Laden would have been buried at sea. There was nothing actually saying that there was proof otherwise. I agree that it seemed (and seems) unlikely that they would have buried him at sea but me saying so is about the same as the Stratfor guy saying so. Seemed like kind of a weak "leak" for Drudge which was likely why he didn't keep it long. Or I could be wrong.

The article is supposition.

I have the best evidence possible that Obama was buried at sea.

it’s a non-story.

If you read it, it says a operative was SPECULATING.

So now reporting a rumor is news?

Drudge has fallen on hard times since Breitbart left.

the story needs to be kept alive...it was up maybe 45 minutes?

And, how many of our troops will be killed this time? When dealing with Koranimals, a Wikileak about burning Korans resulted in some of our best being killed by Afghani troops. How many do you think we can kill with this headline? After all, if it even is true - it's a story. Are our troops that expendable?

Bottom line, OBL is dead, whether he's at the bottom of the sea, or being pickled in a jar - I don't care. However, our enemy is simply looking for excuses to kill our troops - why give them that excuse; unless and until our CINC has the guts to conduct a 'war', where the very idea of killing one of our troops will fill our enemy with terror over the repercussions; we must tread softly.

Would OBL or Ubl be more valuable dead or alive? If the mission to bring him back alive started to go wrong, a quick bullet to the head could fix it.

With no body, why are we to believe that he is even dead?

I have my doubts. I think he will end up being dead, but how long AFTER the raid would that be? Years? Maybe.
