Stratfor Emails: Bin Laden Brought to US Before Sea Burial
[Author's note: In many of his emails, Stratfor's Fred Burton comes across as an arrogant sociopath with a fondness for bragging. Take this for what it's worth.]
In several of the latest emails to emerge from Wikileaks' Global Intelligence Files release, Stratfor CEO George Friedman and Vice President of Intelligence Fred Burton speculate on the fate of Osama bin Laden's corpse, with Burton suggesting that a sea burial wasn't likely ["I don't see the FBI nor DOJ letting that happen"] and then later confidently stating that the body was being transferred to Dover, Delaware and then on to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda, Maryland.

In another email 10 hours later, Burton indicates that the body was in fact buried at sea:
Down & dirty done, He already sleeps with the fish....
** Fred's Note: Although I don't really give a rats ass, it seems to me
that by dropping the corpse in the ocean, the body will come back to haunt
us....gotta be violating some sort of obscure heathen religious rule that
will inflame islam? I was sleeping thru that class at Langley.
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
Did Fred Burton really know as much as he seemed to want his co-workers to believe?
