* President Obama was well aware, in August 2008, that the FBI had failed to solve the anthrax case; did he change his mind less than a month later, when the FBI announced that Dr. Bruce Ivins was the sole perpetrator?

President Obama (on July 16, 2008, during the presidential campaign), mentioned that the FBI had still failed to solve the 2001 anthrax attacks.
the mention begins about 9 min 20 seconds into the speech
LMW COMMENT … It would be fascinating to know if President Obama’s views changed with the FBI announcement less than one month later, in August 2008, that Dr. Bruce Ivins was the sole perpetrator of the anthrax attacks, or if he shares the skepticism which has been robustly expressed on this blog and elsewhere. The FBI had stubbornly refused to brief the U.S. Senate when Obama was a Senator. Since becoming President, has he asked the FBI for the whole story, and if so, what have they told him?
