Revealed: Military emails show that NO U.S. sailors witnessed Osama bin Laden’s secret burial at sea –Defense Department says it cannot find any images or videos of bin Laden’s aboard USS Carl Vinson –Pentagon failed to produce autopsy report, death certificate or results of DNA tests –The CIA, which ran the bin Laden raid, and has special legal authority to keep information from ever being made public. 21 Nov 2012 Internal emails among U.S. military officers indicate that no American sailors watched Osama bin Laden’s burial at sea from the USS Carl Vinson, and traditional Islamic procedures were followed during the secret ceremony. The emails, obtained by The Associated Press through the Freedom of Information Act, are heavily blacked out, but are the first public disclosure of government information about the al-Qaida leader’s death. The emails were released Wednesday by the Defense Department. Although the Obama administration has pledged to be the most transparent in American history, it is keeping a tight hold on materials related to the ‘bin Laden’ raid. In a response to separate requests from the AP for information about the mission, the Defense Department said in March that it could not locate any photographs or video taken during the raid or showing bin Laden’s body. It also said it could not find any images of bin Laden’s body on the Vinson. The Pentagon also said it could not find any death certificate, autopsy report or results of DNA identification tests for bin Laden, or any pre-raid materials discussing how the government planned to dispose of bin Laden’s body if he were killed.
