CASE CLOSED … what really happened in the 2001 anthrax attacks?

* What’s wrong with this equation: no witnesses + no physical evidence + no conclusive science = we’re convinced it was Dr. Ivins

What’s wrong with this equation:

no witnesses + no physical evidence + no conclusive science

= we’re convinced it was Dr. Ivins

Last night’s presentation from Nova Science Now on PBS contained a segment about how researchers determined the source of the anthrax used in the 2001 anthrax attacks.

Here are two quotes from that show …

Dr. Fraser-Liggett

Dr. Fraser-Liggett

  • Thomas Dellafera, U.S. Postal Inspector … “Every member of the task force is convinced it was Dr. Ivins.”
  • Dr. Claire Fraser-Liggett, University of Maryland Medical School … “I don’t think the science will ever be able to say who the perpetrator was. The best the science can do is to lead investigators to a potential source.”

Let’s follow the logic …

  • There seems to be no doubt that the FBI has no witnesses and no physical evidence to link Dr. Ivins to the anthrax attacks.
  • Dr. Fraser-Liggett says the science cannot pin the crime on Dr. Ivins.
  • The anthrax from flask RMR-1029 was distributed widely, to perhaps 100 to 300 different researchers.
  • The FBI has never explained how all of the other labs which had RMR-1029 were excluded as suspects, nor how they are sure none of these many anthrax sources were ever lost or stolen.

With no witnesses, no physical evidence, and no science, how in the world can the FBI be convinced that Dr. Ivins was the sole perpetrator?

It makes no sense. I wrote CASE CLOSED to try to explain the inexplicable.

    Guess who this article was about:

    CBS) Publicly, not much at all has happened in the FBI’s anthrax investigation since the search last winter of a small pond in upper Maryland. Divers went to the bottom but came up empty handed. Privately, however, agents say it would only have been icing on the cake because they believe they already have their man, even if they never get his indictment, reports CBS News Correspondent Jim Stewart.

    Hmmmm…… “they believe they already have their man”.

    How can anything be believed that comes out the mouths of these guys?

    Of course the words of Thomas Dellafera, U.S. Postal Inspector about Ivins are identical to the comments made about Hatfill – the guy the government paid $5.8M a few weeks before Ivins’ convenient death.
