Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was not buried at sea as claimed. Rather, his body was flown to Dover, Delaware on a CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) plane and then to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda, Maryland. This information is according to Stratfor, a US-based intelligence firm also known as the 'Shadow CIA'. There is little reason to doubt the information. It was discovered initially by WikiLeaks in the emails they've leaked and now obtained and released by hacker group, Anonymous.
In late February, WikiLeaks started to release emails that it had obtained from Stratfor. Anonymous obtained around 5 million emails and found the information about Bin Laden. The emails are dated between July 2004 and late December 2011. In the emails, the writer, vice-president for intelligence, Fred Burton 'believes' than Bin Laden's body was flown to Delaware and then Maryland. So, where is the body now?
RT reports that this leak is as high-profile as the State department cables. Stratfor gathers confidential information from paid insiders, including senior state officials, and provides it to large corporations and US governmental agencies. RT wrote, "The company's spy network scoured for info on things ranging from health condition of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez to the laundering of drug profits by Mexican cartels, to the loss of faith in the Obama administration by US business elites." It seems the firm has some pretty serious connections and ability.
In one email, Burton says, "The US Govt needs to make body pics available like the MX's do, with OBL's pants pulled down, to shout down the lunatics like Alex Jones and Glenn Beck." The comment, at least in regards to Glenn Beck, is interesting in hindsight because Beck simply doubted Bin Laden's body was buried at sea, and it seems he was correct.
The Obama administration will have to deny the Osama Bin Laden story right away. However, with the accuracy of the information previously provided by WikiLeaks, the denial won't hold water. Hopefully, the story won't just fade away like Fast and Furious and other cases.
