.... especially related to the hasty disposal of bin Laden's body, claimed by the Pentagon to have been buried at sea within 24 hours (after DNA identity confirmation) "in accordance with Islamic tradition".
But according to Hersh's sources, there was no burial at sea given "there wouldn't have been much left of bin Laden to put into the sea in any case" as the al-Qaeda leader had been "torn apart with rifle fire". Instead, pieces of the corpse were "tossed out over the Hindu Kush mountains" by Navy SEALs during the chopper flight out of Pakistan, according to Hersh's sources. It was but one detail contradicting a broader Washington narrative meant to in part conceal the shocking fact that close American ally Pakistan had for years been hiding Osama bin Laden "in plain sight" — with knowledge at the highest levels of Islamabad intelligence officials — even as US special forces combed the mountains of Afghanistan in a futile manhunt .
And now here we are, days after another epic raid on another world's #1 terror leader's compound, with the exact same hasty "burial at sea" story from the Pentagon.
