Skip to comments.Bin Laden sea burial cast into doubt

Osama Bin Laden's body wasn't buried at sea, but was instead flown back to the US, leaked emails suggest.
Military think-tank Stratfor was hacked late last year in an attack attributed to Anonymous splinter group LulzSec - and for which alleged hackers including 'Sabu', aka Hector Xavier Monsegur, have just been arrested.
Two weeks ago, Wikileaks started publishing several million emails harvested during the attack. And, now, some of the latest look set to excite the conspiracy theorists.
The official White House story is that Bin Laden's body was buried at sea on May 2 last year, around 12 hours after his death - in keeping with Muslim tradition, which demands a swift burial.
But the newly-released emails suggest that, at the very least, this wasn't the plan at the time.
In one, sent to a colleague at 5.51am on the day Bin Laden was killed, Stratfor VP for intelligence wrote: "Body bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane. Than onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda."
At 1.36pm, he wrote again, saying: "Body is Dover bound, should be here by now."
However, if the emails are to be believed, there appears to have been a change of plan. Just a couple of hours later, Burton wrote: "Down and dirty done. He already sleeps with the fish."
Of course, another possibility is that Stratfor - which claims to have the ear of the US government - was left out of the loop on this occasion.
Stratfor has consistently refused to confirm or denty the authenticity of the emails, saying some 'may' have been forged or altered.
He’s partying with Elvis and Jimmy Hoffa.
Where’s the Death Certificate?
For all we know with this administration, OBL coould be co-President.
“We don’t want to show OBL’s body because that will make the Islamo-Nazis really really really really really really mad at us as compared to how they are just really really really really really mad at us right now. Plus appeasing the Islamo-Nazis is more important than bringing closure to the 911 families.”
Hey, that’s pretty much the excuse we got isn’t it?
I believe he’s been dead for years.
I believe he’s been dead for years.
The bas**rd is dead, what else matters?
I thought pitcures were taken of Bin Laden’s dead body by Navy SEALs
There was also video taken by the SEALs raid and WH watched the raid live.
You are correct
You're right, move on, it's not like Watergate or anything.
I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Bath House Barry had him living under a witness protection program and running a Dairy Queen somewhere.
If it was true, then it would mean that the Stratfor folks had access to highly classified information and were distributing it, which breaks all kinds of security protocols. I don’t believe it to be true though.
Cool! Is that a MOAB?
I forgot the name of the new model so I searched the one I remembered. That’s the Big Blue 82. It was also called the Daisy Cutter, used to clear LZs ......and just about everything else within one mile.
Osama, Obama, is there a difference? Both want to destroy America. Slight difference, I suppose. Obama uses the stroke of his pen, as a weapon of mass destruction.
With Obama’s Birth Certificate.
The only difference between Obama and Osama is a little b.s.
‘cast into doubt’.
You mean someone believed he was ‘buried at sea’?
My preference would’ve been that they pass the body on to Brick Top via Bullet Tooth Tony.
Probably stuffed and standing on opposite side of wooden Indian at a cigar store in Walla Walla, WA.................
> I believe hes been dead for years.
No kidding. My personal belief is that he became worm food at Tora Bora years ago.
Bad assed for sure. In Nam we used LZ’s that had been cleared years before by Daisy Cutters. I never saw one used.
