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

* fom DXer … Did Dr. Bruce Ivins attend his regular Red Cross meeting on one of the days the FBI says he was mailing anthrax letters in Princeton?

The New York Times says the FBI’s anthrax case has “too many loose ends.” Find out where some of those looses ends might have originated in my novel CASE CLOSED. Sure it’s fiction, but many readers, including a highly respected member of the U.S. Intelligence Community, think my premise is actually “quite plausible.”

    In another very long email to Mara Linscott dated Saturday, September 22, 2001 — this one again about what was bothering their mutual friend, Pat Fellows — Ivins says:

    “Today I took an introductory course on Disaster Response at the Frederick County Red Cross chapter in Walkersville.”

      In yet another very long email on Saturday, September 22, 2001 to Mara about Pat, Ivins then turns to describe his Red Cross training.

      “Today I took an introductory course on Disaster Response at the Frederick County Red Cross chapter in Walkersville. It was fascinating. I’m really interested in it, and it’s something I think I could get into full time, with real passion, after I retire. There are lots of different jobs to do in in a disaster response, some on the front lines, and some in the background. There are people needed for computer data entries, providing meals and setting up shelter, damage assessment, providing medial aid, training people in what to do in case of disasters, coordinating responses, etc. The next meeting is in the middle of October, and I’m already looking forward to it.”

    On December 13, 2002, Dr. Ivins got a group email to Red Cross volunteers for the “Cleanup Crew” for end of FBI canteening operation.

    “I have called many of you for assistance with various tasks we have needed to attend to. I now need to line up some volunteers for the final cleanup of the FBI operation. This will involve unloading the RV and the Suburban, re-stocking the mass care kits, cleaning up the vehicles, etc. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. The cleanup may occur on Sunday evening or Monday evening — we won’t now until we get the word from the FBI.”

    Comment:

    The FBI is fortunate it has volunteers working to clean up its mess.

    Bruce did attend a 4 hour training session on September 22. See 9/5/2007 302 interview excerpted above. A computer record uploaded October 1, 2001 confirms that. Beyond that, Judy Peterson or some volunteer may remember the circumstances or record of the very first contact with Dr. Ivins.

    Time: Become a Red Cross disaster volunteer. The chapter is conducting a Chapter Orientation and an “Introduction to Disaster Services” class on Saturday, September 22, 8:30-12:30. The class will be held in the chapter house at 2 E. Frederick Street, Walkersville.

  4. Monday Sep 17 2001 Ivins left work at 7:13 pm. He could then have joined the Red Cross meeting a little late.
