WHO had the power to divert the FBI from the truth?
CASE CLOSED offers a fictional scenario that answers those questions
the CASE CLOSED blog keeps questioning the FBI’s anthrax case
Adam Behsudi wrote several stories about the anthrax case in today’s (7-26-09) FrederickNewsPost.com. The story excerpted below, headlined Anthrax Case: Amerithrax debate lives online, shows the important role our CASE CLOSED blog is continuing to play in raising relevant questions about the FBI’s anthrax investigation …
- For the past year, government officials have remained quiet on the case accusing Fort Detrick scientist Bruce Ivins of the deadly anthrax letter attacks.
- Not so on the Internet, where a handful of people have turned Amerithrax into an ongoing discussion.
- … bloggers have been filing Freedom of Information Act requests and working sources just as any experienced reporter would.
- “I think it’s kept it alive. Its provided a place for reporters and others to go from time to time and look for facts and opinions,” said Lew Weinstein, who wrote a fictional novel based on the Amerithrax case titled “CASE CLOSED.”
- Weinstein said the facts, or what he perceives as a lack thereof, infuriated him to the point of writing CASE
CLOSED. He maintains a blog with the same name, trying to debunk the FBI case against Ivins.
- Weinstein, who splits his time between Key West, Fla., and Collioure, France, was once a congressional candidate, has degrees from Princeton and the Harvard Business School and retired in 2005 as the CEO of a biomedical research organization.
- “I am amazed at the level of scientific discourse that’s taking place on my blog,” said Weinstein, who called from a trip he was taking with his wife to Lithuania. “This is not simply a crime story. There’s more to it than that,” he said.
- Ed Lake has been studying the case since 2001. Eight years ago he started a website to compile facts, documents and his own analysis. Unlike Weinstein, Lake has found the FBI case against Ivins solid.
- Despite opposing viewpoints, Lake and Weinstein share an interest in the Amerithrax case that goes beyond the curiosity of most people.
