WASHINGTON (AP) — 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.
guys no one takes us conspiracy guys seriously. they wouldn't go through the trouble to convince us. If they were trying to fake it they would have photos of a really good prop. If the crew from the walking dead can make it im pretty sure a low budget account like the us fricken government could afford better. They didn't release photos because why the hell would they release photos of a bloody corpse. They dont normally do that in the news. I
The email could just have been a cover story.
The email gives the illusion that photos actually existed.
Good way to cover up the possibility that no photos existed if the attack was staged.
