ShareThisBin Laden raid files reportedly purged from Pentagon computers, sent to CIA 08 Jul 2013 The nation’s top special operations commander ordered military files about the Navy SEAL raid on ‘Usama bin Laden’s’ hideout to be purged from Defense Department computers and sent to the CIA, where they could be more easily shielded from ever being made public. The secret move, described briefly in a draft report by the Pentagon’s inspector general, set off no alarms within the Obama administration even though it appears to have sidestepped federal rules and perhaps also the Freedom of Information Act. An acknowledgement by Adm. William McRaven of his actions was quietly removed from the final version of an inspector general’s report published weeks ago. The CIA, noting that the ‘bin Laden’ mission was overseen by then-CIA Director Leon Panetta before he became defense secretary, said that the SEALs were effectively assigned to work temporarily for the CIA, which has presidential authority to conduct covert operations.
