Obama Still Hiding Information About bin Laden Burial
President Barack Obama’s administration gave up 31 pages of “heavily redacted emails” related to the military’s burial of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden over the past week or so, but continues refusing to release more information about the operation and subsequent burial.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch said Monday that the Obama administration has post-mortem photographs and videos of bin Laden that it refuses to release for national security reasons. The administration is also citing national security purposes for its refusal to publicly provide details about what “prepared religious remarks” the U.S. military read at the ceremony.
The information the administration did release — emails made public through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) fights from Judicial Watch and the Associated Press — describe the bin Laden internment at sea.
