Bin Laden's body taken to secret CIA hideout: Statfor

Dunedin Guardian press release : Bin Laden's body taken to secret CIA hideout, intelligence officer claims.

A series of secret emails sent by a high-ranking intelligence officer, working for American based intelligence company Stratfor, give rise to growing speculation the US military did not dispose of Osama Bin Laden’s body at sea.

The US military claimed that after they shot Bin Laden in his house in the Abbottabad city of Pakistan , the US Navy dumped his body at sea.

The intelligence emails have been published by Wikileaks, after hacker group Anonymous broke into Stratfor’s email system and provided them with over 5 million top secret emails detailing the inner workings of the intelligence company, from top-to-bottom, including personal bank statements, and corporate structure.

In one email, Senior Stratfor Intelligence officer, Fred Burton, writes he “doubts the body was dumped at sea” and goes on to say Bin Laden’s body “is a crime scene and I don’t see the FBI nor DOJ letting that
happen”.

In another email, Burton writes Bin Laden’s “body bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane” and “than onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda.”

Another email claims “reportedly, we took the body with us. Thank goodness.”

Fred Burton is Stratfor’s vice president for intelligence, and is considered “one of the world’s foremost experts on security, terrorists and terrorist organizations.”

Before joining Stratfor, Burton was a special agent with the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service.

In one email from May 2001, Burton writes “While STRATFOR believes bin Laden had become tactically irrelevant since 9/11, he remained symbolically important and a focal point for the U.S.
intelligence effort.”
