WikiLeaks publishes emails throwing official account of former Al-Qaeda leader's burial into doubt
Bin Laden: did he actually die at sea?
The body of Osama Bin Laden was NOT buried at sea, according to sensational new leaked emails.
The former Al-Qaeda leader was said by US officials to have been buried at an undisclosed location in the Arabian sea.
But according to leaked emails published by WikiLeaks his corpse was actually flown to a morgue in the US.
Bin Laden was killed by Navy SEALS in a raid on his Pakistan hideaway in May last year.
Official reports said his corpse was flown to the USS Carl Vinson within hours, wrapped in a sheet and "eased" into the water, in accordance with Muslim tradition.
But internal emails from intelligence service Stratfor suggest a very different picture.
On the day of Bin Laden's killing, Stratfor vice president for intelligence Fred Burton apparently wrote: "Body bound for Dover, DE on CIA plane. Than (sic) onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda."
A later email from Burton read: "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 not DOJ letting that happen."
Eichman was one of the Nazi masterminds of the Holocaust. He was captured, tried in Israel and then executed in 1962. His body was cremated and the ashes scattered at sea.

Bin Laden lived with his family in his £600,000 fortress for six years without the Pakistani government knowing.
The raid at the three-story building took just 40 minutes, during which time five people were killed.
