Wikileaks Releases STRATFOR Document Claiming Bin Laden Was Brought Back to the USA

This was picked up this morning by Kevin Gosztola at firedoglake, from today's Wikileaks release of stolen STRATFOR emails:
9:04 AM EST The emails show Fred Burton was given updates after Osama bin Laden was killed until his body allegedly arrived in Dover, Delaware.
Vice President of Intelligence Fred Burton wrote in an email, “Body is Dover bound, should be here by now.” This came after he wrote in another email:
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.
His body is a crime scene and I don’t see the FBI nor DOJ letting that happen.
On May 5, 2011, he reported the body is “airborne to CONUS.” CONUS is a Defense Department term for the contiguous United States. He even shared the exact location where the body was going saying that same day it was going “onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda.” Bethesda is in Maryland just outside of Washington, DC.
Though it was not really secret information, Burton’s source in the FBI told him there was a likelihood of “retaliation attacks in CONUS.”
Also, Burton shared this perspective on why photos needed to be made public:
Although I don’t really give a rats ass, it seems to methat 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 Beck.
 9:37 AM EST Here is some context for the emails containing details on Bin Laden’s body allegedly being transported to Maryland. First off, someone was giving Burton this information. Details on where his body was going and what was really happening with his body was probably classified.

Burton’s information on the body being moved to Delaware and then on to Bethesda, Maryland,  if true, would mean the Pentagon lied about Bin Laden being buried at sea.

This is the story the Pentagon told the press:

A senior U.S. defense official said the religious rites aboard the ship lasted about 50 minutes. He said bin Laden’s body was washed, wrapped in a white sheet and then placed in a weighted bag. A military officer read “religious remarks,” which were translated into Arabic by a native speaker. “After the words were complete, the body was placed on a prepared flat board, tipped up, whereupon the deceased’s body eased into the sea,” the official told reporters. He spoke on the condition of anonymity, in accordance with Pentagon procedures.

It would seem the CIA moved the body. And, it was taken for forensic testing or perhaps an autopsy.

The whole idea of a sea burial was to avoid any outrage from Americans or people in other countries, who might not want him buried in their soil. But, what if a Dover mortuary that had been disposing of US troops‘ remains for years handled his body? What if he ended up in a Virginia landfill?
