is a novel which answers the question
… Why did the FBI fail to solve the 2001 anthrax case?
Here’s the fictional Lieutenant General Clifford Drysdale, Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), organizing a new look at the FBI’s anthrax investigation …
“Those FBI bastards hounded a Defense Department employee until he committed suicide, if it was suicide. After seven years the FBI hasn’t come close to making a case that could convict the lowest grade criminal, let alone an internationally respected scientist. And they think they can say ‘case closed’ and sweep their incompetent investigation under the rug? I’ve already spoken to Secretary Morgan,” General Drysdale continued. “The Secretary agrees that the Defense Department is taking an unwarranted hit from the FBI, and we don’t know why. At my request, the Secretary has authorized us to find out what really happened. You’re the team I’ve selected. You’re authorized to go where you need to go, ask what you need to know. You’ll have whatever resources are necessary.
floor plan of suite at GMU’s Discovery Hall in 2001
with Ali Al-Timimi and leading anthrax scientists
From DXer …
- Here is the floor plan at George Mason University’s Discovery Hall in 2001 occupied by Ali Al-Timimi and leading anthrax scientists as part of the DARPA-funded Center for Biodefense.
- Dr. Alibek was the leading anthrax scientist and co-founded the Center with the former deputy USAMRIID Commander Charles Bailey. They were Battelle consultants. Dr. Bailey was the lead DIA person on biothreat assessment.
- DXer suggests that it shows that the man coordinating with 911 imam Anwar Aulaqi and Bin Laden’s sheik Al-Hawali (who was subject of the 1996 Declaration of War) was within 15 feet or so of the leading anthrax scientist and the former deputy USAMRIID Commander. Published articles indicate that Dr. Bailey came to be a prolific Ames researcher.
- Ali Al-Timimi was in a program sponsored by the American Type Culture Collection where the FBI’s lead Amerithrax scientist was a collections scientist at the ATCC Bacteriology Division.
- Did Ali Al-Timimi, convicted of sedition and sentenced to life plus 70 years, infiltrate US biodefense?
