MORE photos of Osama bin Laden’s body uncovered after Freedom of Information request – but Justice Department still won’t release them

Additional images of Osama bin Laden taken shortly after his death in a daring Navy SEAL raid have been found by the CIA – but all of the photos will remain unseen by the public.

The discovery was announced on Friday in a letter from the Justice Department.

The new pictures would add to about 52 grusesome shots of the terror leader’s body after he was killed in May 2011 by members of SEAL Team Six as they raided his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Those photos were requested in a Freedom of Information filing by Michael Bekesha of Judicial Watch after the federal government ruled they must be kept classified for national security purposes.

In a letter to Mr Bekesha obtained by The Huffington Post, the Justice Department said that ‘the CIA recently located seven additional images of Osama Bin Laden’s body from the May 1, 2011 operation that resulted in his death.’ Read more.
