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

* UPI Outside View (from a colleague at USAMRIID) … was Bruce Ivins the sole perpetrator of the anthrax mailings as the FBI claims or did his suicide result from the pressure of the investigation and the possible revelation of damaging personal information as occurred in the Hatfill case?

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.”

Dr. Bruce Ivins

Lawrence Sellin writes for UPI Outside View (4/22/10) …

  • I knew Bruce Ivins, although not well.
    • During my time at Fort Detrick I worked with botulinum toxin, while Ivins worked with anthrax. So, our paths didn’t cross in the laboratories.
    • As others have described him, I found Ivins eccentric, geeky and a bit socially inept.He didn’t strike me as being dangerous and I was, therefore, both surprised and shocked that the FBI concluded that he was the anthrax mailer.
    • It has been reported that Ivins underwent a similar degree of harassment and subjected to an equivalent amount of leaking of confidential information as Hatfill.
    • The FBI allegedly told Ivins’ children that he was a murderer, showed them photos of the victims and offered his son cash and a sports car if he turned against his father.
  • the FBI case against Ivins may not be rock solid as they seem to indicate.
    • Jeff Adamovicz, chief of bacteriology at Fort Detrick and Ivins’ supervisor stated that more than two samples taken from laboratories and tested by the FBI, Fort Detrick being one of them, possessed the anthrax strain linked to the mailings. What about the other samples?
    • Is it reasonable to presume that in the days and weeks after 9/11 that Ivins had the time and expertise to carry out the attacks alone and without any witnesses?
    • Furthermore, a number of anthrax experts claim that at the time Fort Detrick didn’t have the equipment necessary to produce anthrax of the type found in the anthrax letters.
  • Was Bruce Ivins the sole perpetrator of the anthrax mailings as the FBI claims or did his suicide result from the pressure of the investigation and the possible revelation of damaging personal information as occurred in the Hatfill case?
  • Did Ivins, like Hatfill before him, simply fit the profile?
  • In the opinion of many, the Amerithrax investigation still appears far from conclusive.

    In his second interview, he says he can put names to the interviews. He knows who the judases were — he says they were under similar pressure and diverting blame to everyone. He believes that the person(s) who did this are still out there and could do it again.

    He says he picked up 50% of Dr. Ivins’ salary out of his projects.

    He says numerous interviews are missing from what the DOJ has disclosed — those from late 2001 through 2003 – over a year’s worth. He says this was the period where they were focused on the silicon content the experiments with introducing silicone and what happened to those samples. Lew previously featured a graphic on this issue picturing an open manila folder and asking where the missing folders are. With this confirmation by Dr. Heine, it might be worth reemphasizing.

    He says reading the Ivins’ interviews “broke my heart.” He says things that Dr. Ivins did in the privacy of his own home “I didn’t need to know.”
