U.S. House Seeks Further Review Of Anthrax Attacks

Congressmen Bartlett & Holt

Congressman Holt … “The FBI botched this case from the very beginning, and now they have arbitrarily closed the investigation because they are sure they have their man – just as they were sure they had their first man, who they had to pay $6 million for false arrest,” Holt said. “Yet, there are too many questions that the victims’ families, law enforcement, and the general public deserve answered. This amendment would helpanswer one of those questions. Given that samples of the strain of anthrax that was used in the attacks may have been supplied to foreign laboratories, it is important to examine whether or not evidence of a potential foreign connection to the attacks was overlooked, ignored, or simply not passed along to the FBI.

Congressman Bartlett …  “His colleagues say that he would not have done it,” said Bartlett, who complained that Fort Detrick officials have refused to let him speak with scientists who work there.

AP reports …

  • The House of Representatives is seeking further review of the 2001 anthrax mailings that killed five people.
  • House members approved an amendment to an intelligence authorization bill Thursday that would require the government to look for credible evidence of foreign involvement in the attacks that killed five people and sickened 17 others.
  • The action comes six days after the FBI closed its investigation by concluding Army scientist Bruce Ivins was the sole perpetrator of the attacks.
  • The amendment was offered by New Jersey Democrat Rush Holt, from whose state the letters were mailed, and Maryland Republican Roscoe Bartlett. Maryland is home to Fort Detrick, the Army installation where Ivins worked before he killed himself in 2008.
  • Both congressmen have expressed doubts about the FBI’s conclusions.

    Doesn’t Amerithrax just represent an unsuccessful attempt to expose Zawahiri’s parallel cell based in the US?

    The Washington Post credits me with first identifying the infiltrating scientist who had procured equipment for Ayman.

    But since December 2001, there’s always been Ayman’s multi-pronged cell structure to address.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    February 25, 2010

    Contact: Zach Goldberg
    202-225-5801 (office)

    HOUSE VOTES TO ADVANCE INDEPENDENT ANTHRAX INVESTIGATION
    Holt Includes Anthrax Investigation in Intelligence Bill,
    In Addition to Videorecording, Gulf War Syndrome Provisions

    (Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Representative Rush Holt (NJ-12) – Chair of the Select Intelligence Oversight Panel and a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence –today succeeded in including language in the 2010 Intelligence Authorization Bill that would require the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community to examine the possibility of a foreign connection to the 2001 anthrax attacks. The report would be unclassified with a classified annex and would go to the intelligence, foreign affairs, judiciary, and homeland security committees of the House and Senate. The House is expected to pass the Intelligence Authorization Bill tonight.

    “The FBI botched this case from the very beginning, and now they have arbitrarily closed the investigation because they are sure they have their man – just as they were sure they had their first man, who they had to pay $6 million for false arrest,” Holt said. “Yet, there are too many questions that the victims’ families, law enforcement, and the general public deserve answered. This amendment would help answer one of those questions. Given that samples of the strain of anthrax that was used in the attacks may have been supplied to foreign laboratories, it is important to examine whether or not evidence of a potential foreign connection to the attacks was overlooked, ignored, or simply not passed along to the FBI.

    Last week, the FBI announced it formally closed its investigation of the 2001 anthrax letter attacks, commonly known as the “Amerithrax” investigation. The attacks evidently originated from a postal box in Holt’s Central New Jersey congressional district, killing five, and disrupting the lives and livelihoods of many of his constituents. The attacks greatly contributed to the national fear of terrorism and affected the response of our nation to these attacks. Holt has consistently raised questions about the federal investigation into the attacks.

    “To date, there has been no independent, comprehensive examination of the FBI’s conduct in this investigation,” Holt added. “This provision would help us begin an independent examination of our government’s response to these attacks by having the Intelligence Community IG determine whether there was a foreign connection to these attacks.”
