Bin Laden ‘cre­mated in the US’

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

LEAKED CIA emails re­veal Osama bin Laden’s body was se­cretly shipped to the USA af­ter his death.

US of­fi­cials had claimed the al Qaeda leader had been buried at sea fol­low­ing the Navy Seals raid at his se­cret com­pound in Pak­istan.

But in emails ob­tained by the hack­ing group Anony­mous from pri­vate in­tel­li­gence agency Stratfor, re­veals doubts about the US Gov­ern­ment’s story.

Ac­cord­ing to the emails the Saudi nutjob was trans­ported back to Amer­ica and cre­mated.

Stratfor’s vice-pres­i­dent for in­tel­li­gence, Fred Bur­ton, says the body was “bound for Dover, Delaware on a CIA plane” and “on­ward to the Armed Forces In­sti­tute of Pathol­ogy in Bethesda, Mary­land’.”

The US Au­thor­i­ties say the sea burial was in keep­ing with Mus­lim tra­di­tion.

But cre­ma­tion is for­bid­den in Is­lam and the news is bound to pro­voke outrage amongst fun­da­men­tal­ist al Qaeda sup­port­ers.

Walt a pair!
