Osama bin Laden photos ordered destroyed despite public records request – Washington Times

USS Carl Vincent - bin LadenThe Osama Bin Laden “capture” was always in the card deck. And the burial at sea was a game bonus. It wasn’t meant to hide the truth, it was meant to provoke indignation and further conspiratorial fodder. They knew no one would buy the ‘burial at sea’ in the first place. The “supposed” mastermind of the greatest crime or act of war since Pearl Harbor and enemy #1 on the FBI/CIA most wanted list?  And we’re gonna sail the boat back into Norfolk without a body?! HELLOOOO!

Osama bin Laden photos ordered destroyed despite public records request – Washington Times

WASHINGTON — A newly-released email shows that 11 days after the killing of terror leader Osama bin Laden in 2011, the U.S. military’s top special operations officer ordered subordinates to destroy any photographs of the al-Qaida founder’s corpse or turn them over to the CIA.

The email was obtained under a freedom of information request by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch. The document, released Monday by the group, shows that Adm. William McRaven, who heads the U.S. Special Operations Command, told military officers on May 13, 2011 that photos of bin Laden’s remains should have been sent to the CIA or already destroyed. Bin Laden was killed by a special operations team in Pakistan on May 2, 2011.

McRaven’s order to purge the bin Laden material came 10 days after The Associated Press asked for the photos and other documents under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act. Typically, when a freedom of information request is filed to a government agency, the agency is obliged to preserve the material sought — even if the agency later denies the request.
