The FBI’s case against Dr. Ivins is bogus: no evidence, no witnesses, an impossible timeline, science that proves innocence instead of guilt. So what really happened? And why? The “fictional” scenario in my novel CASE CLOSED has been judged by many readers, including a highly respected official in the U.S. Intelligence Community, as “quite plausible.”
The FBI claims that Dr. Ivins was the sole perpetrator of the 2001 anthrax attacks, and thus that he personally mailed the letters which were postmarked in Princeton with a date of September 18, 2001.
But, from DXer’s recent comments, based on documents recently released, it appears that …
- Ivins was on a roadtrip with co-workers to Covance on September 18, 2001. Notebook 4240 entries concern immunization of rabbits at Covance for antiserum
And, from other records DXer has obtained, it seems Ivins could not have been in Princeton the prior evening if he was …
- at a Red Cross meeting in Frederick on the night of September 17, 2001
These are easily verified matters. There are witnesses who can say where Ivins was, or that he was not where the records say he was. Yet the FBI has presented nothing publicly to either prove, or more likely disprove, their continued unsupported allegations that Ivins did it all alone.
How can anyone have confidence in the FBI in the face of these disclosures, which, by the way, the FBI kept hidden for years, even after they announced in August 2008 that the case would soon be closed?
My conclusion … the FBI’s pathetic case against Dr. Ivins is a fraud, and either …
- The FBI has failed to solve the case, or
- The FBI has solved the case, it isn’t Ivins, and they are protecting the identity of the real perpetrators
It is up to Congressman Holt’s proposed investigative commission, which President Obama must not be allowed to derail, to get at the truth in this matter. Whoever killed five people is still out there.
