After the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011, his body was handled onboard the USS Carl Vinson in accordance with Muslim procedures, placed in a weighted bag, and submerged; only a fraction of the ship’s leadership was aware of the burial.
The Associated Press used FOIA to obtain the partially-redacted email.
