Body bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane. Than (sic) onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda.”

Email leaked from Stratfor vice president for intelligence, Fred Burton

Emails leaked from the US-based global security think tank, Stratfor, obtained by hacker group Anonymous suggest that Osama Bin Laden was not buried at sea but instead flown to US for cremation.


The whistleblower website Wikileaks has released the email belonging to Stratfor vice president for intelligence Fred Burton, in which he says “Reportedly, we took the body with us. Thank goodness.”

“Body bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane. Than (sic) onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda,” a subsequent email on the same day stated.

Burton goes on saying that “If body dumped at sea, which I doubt, the touch is very Adolph Eichman like. The Tribe did the same thing with the Nazi's ashes. We would want to photograph, DNA, fingerprint, etc.”

However, in his last communication on the subject with George Friedman, Stratfor’s chief executive, Burton said “Down and dirty done, He already sleeps with the fish…”

The email is among a trove of five million messages hacked from the firm. Stratfor subscribers include major corporations, military officials and international government agencies. The US weekly business magazine Barron's has likened Stratfor to a "shadow CIA".

US President Barack Obama claimed that Osama bin Laden was killed by US forces on May 1 in a hiding compound in Pakistan.

A US official later announced that bin Laden's body was abruptly buried at sea, falsely boasting that his hasty burial was in accordance with the Islamic law, requiring burial within 24 hours of death.

However, burial at sea is not an Islamic practice and Islam does not have a timeframe for burial.

US officials also claimed their decision for a sea burial was made because no country would accept bin Laden's remains, without elaborating on which countries were actually contacted on the matter.
