Amidst the emails revealed in the recent Wikileaks crop is a gem from Stratfor’s VP for intelligence, Fred Burton. He calls for the Obama administration to release photos of Bin Laden's corpse to silence “lunatics like Alex Jones and Glenn Beck.”
Prison Planet, one of the Internet homes of controversial radio host Alex Jones, has revealed that one of the emails from Stratfor's Fred Burton urges the U.S. government to release photos of Bin Laden's corpse.
In an effort to quell the inevitable conspiracy theories Burton wrote "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.” He added “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.”
RT reported that the contents of another of Burton's emails described Bin Laden's body as "a crime scene and I don’t see the FBI nor DOJ letting that happen.” As Digital Journal reported earlier emails referred to the al-Qaeda leader's body as “bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane.” A later email said the body was “onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda [Maryland]” as Burton expressed his doubts that the body had been buried at sea at all, rather as the "lunatics" would suspect.
Burton went on to compare the Bin Laden corpse scenario to the handling of the body of Adolf Eichman, architect of the Nazi holocaust, writing "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."
Not only do the emails bring the official account of Bin Laden's burial at sea into question but they raise issues regarding the united front the government presents in the official line they adopt in regard to Islam. Prison Planet discloses the close ties enjoyed by Burton with the U.S. government "having worked as a special agent with the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service."
