In May of last year, the US killing of Osama bin Laden was immediately followed by debate over the disposal of his corpse.Osama Bin Laden The Obama Administration insisted bin Laden was put in a bag and hurled into the sea, which they insisted was “in keeping with Islamic practices,” while some were calling for his body to be kept around so it could be overtly desecrated.

WikiLeaks’ release of Stratfor emails, however, shows that the company’s Vice President Fred Burton did not believe that was the case, and told members of the company’s mailing list that bin Laden’s corpse was “Dover bound,” referring to the Dover Air Force Base which is also the site to which US soldiers slain overseas are brought.

Another email from Burton said bin Laden’s body was “bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane” and “onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda.” Technically this would have meant the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, since the AFIP operations were folded into Walter Reed as part of a consolidation plan.
