… FBI offers little that is new

… the evidence is circumstantial and unconvincing


Megan Eckstein writes in the Frederick News-Post (2-23-10) … Read the entire article at …


The FBI’s case against Dr. Ivins is bogus: no evidence, no witnesses, an impossible timeline. The real question is why the FBI persists in sticking to such a pathetic story. What are they hiding?

    The DOJ Summary states:

    First, the specific language of the anthrax letters tracked the rambling e-mail of more than two pages that Dr. Ivins sent to Former Colleague #1 [Mara] on September 26, 2001, as

    9/26/01 e-mail:
    “I just heard tonight that the Bin Laden terrorists for sure have anthrax and sarin gas.”

    The Summary argues that it was before the letters were sent and so he could not possibly have been parroting the letters.

    That’s right. He wasn’t parroting the letters. He was just reporting on national news he heard that day — just like he says on the face of the email that DOJ has failed to produce.

    Washington Times’ national security columnist had just reported on Bin Laden terrorists’ and anthrax and sarin gas.

    “Intelligence officials say classified analysis of the types of chemicals and toxins sought by al Qaeda indicate the group probably is trying to produce the nerve agent. Sarin, or biological weapons made up of anthrax spores. Sarin can be produced from the components used to make fertilizer and kills by disrupting the central nervous system. Anthrax is a highly lethal biological weapon that causes death after spores are ingested.”

    The AUSA in charge of Amerithrax was lambasted for deliberately mischaracterizing the evidence in a decision dismissing the indictments against the Blackwater defendants.

    The DOJ took no steps to disclose the September 26, 2001 media report even after it was pointed out in August 2008 by blogger EmptyWheel and others.
