Igniting extensive controversy already, investigative reporter Seymour Hersh’s article disputing the official account of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound might land in the dockets of federal and military appeals courts, Courthouse News has learned.
In a phone interview, a New York attorney for a now-deceased embassy bombing suspect revealed that his client disputed the authenticity of bin Laden messages that Hersh’s report alleges to be “fabrications,” in a motion currently under seal in a federal court.
A Pakistani Brooklynite who was recently convicted of supporting al-Qaida also fought the admission of the bin Laden evidence before an FBI agent used it against him at trial, his appellate counsel added.
The lawyer for WikiLeaks source Chelsea Manning also commented that her team is considering what significance the report holds for her client’s appeal.
