* USAMRIID RMR records – Dr. Bruce Ivins’ flask 1029 – two documents don’t match

WHO had the power to divert the FBI from the truth?
CASE CLOSED offers a fictional scenario that answers those questions
USAMRIID RMR records – Dr. Bruce Ivins’ flask 1029
two documents don’t match
I have now received new documents, from DXer, in addition to the previously redacted copy of the RMR-1029 records that I posted here (* Dr. Bruce Ivins RMR-1029 inventory records, from 1997 to 2003, pursuant to a FOIA request) on June 26.
One of the new documents is an unredacted copy of the above, showing names and locations of where aliquots of RMR-1029 were shipped to.
The other document is the ORIGINAL working document of 1997 when there was still 1000ml in the flask and no aliquots had yet been removed.
Curiously this ORIGINAL document is DIFFERENT than the other document. It gives a different location. The new RMR-1029 document has been altered. But by whom?
The New York Times partially reported some of these details previously:
“Laboratory records obtained by The New York Times show that the anthrax supply labeled RMR-1029, which the F.B.I. linked to the attacks, was stored in 1997 not in Dr. Ivins’s laboratory, in Building 1425, but in the adjacent Building 1412. Former colleagues said that its storage in both buildings at different times from 1997 to 2001 might mean that the bureau’s estimate of 100 people with physical access to it was two or three times too low.” NYT.
But this new document fills in new details. Apparently the document has been altered with white-out. If Bruce Ivins did this why would he not just score out the old location and hand-write in the new location? Why would he seek to obscure the original location?
The location of the flask was vital to the FBI’s case against Ivins. The FBI claim the flask was in cold room B3 during the time of the attacks. But was it?
