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

Archive for June, 2010

* New release of Bruce Ivins emails from September 2004 – May 2005

Posted by Lew Weinstein on June 22, 2010

.

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.”

After no response to my June 4 email, I sent another email this morning (June 22) …

JOHN Can you advise when the next batch of Ivins emails will be released, and what period they will cover? Thanks. LEW

JOHN’S RESPONSE  …

Batch 59-62 have been processed for release/posting to the website. They should be available shortly for viewing. September 2004 – May 2005.  498 pages.

I sent the following email to USAMRIID on June 4

JOHN

  • Documents are dribbled out (where are 2005-2008 emails?), attachments are not released with the appropriate emails, and far too much information is blacked out of what is released.
  • What justification does USAMRIID offer for its apparent continued violation of the FOIA law?
  • You have always been polite and responsive to my emails, but I am still left wondering why you and others should not be held responsible and perhaps even prosecuted for what appears to be willful dereliction of duty.
  • I’ll be happy to post your response and let your side of this story be known.

NOTE: spoliation of evidence is the intentional or negligent withholding, hiding, alteration or destruction of evidence relevant to a legal proceeding. It is a criminal act in the United States under Federal and most State law.

* organizing the CASE CLOSED blog

Posted by Lew Weinstein on June 21, 2010

The following comment was posted this morning …

I’ve been reading for weeks and WEEKS and I just keep going round and round never quite know where the beginning , middle or the end of all the documents are. I wonder if your site has the ability to get the info in to a message board format…where folks could follow topics easier. It would must less confusing. I am soooo interested in the subject *esp after reading Lew’s book* and want desperately to get a basic timeline of the events that occurred after the anthrax letters started …

My response …

I have the same problem you have expressed.

There have been 440 posts to this blog since it began, leading to over 5400 comments. There are several very different lines of inquiry (the scientific evidence, the FBI’s withholding of evidence, failure of USAMRIID to follow the FOIA, the so far closed nature of the NAS review, different theories of who actually prepared and mailed the anthrax, etc., etc.), most of which which hardly intersect at all.

The only theme which fits most of the blog content is that the FBI has surely not proven its case against Dr. Ivins, at least in the documents so far released.

I have made this blog available to all who wish to post comments (excepting only personal insults) but I do not have the time to organize the comments, much as I might like that to be done.

Most of my writing time these days is devoted to my 4th novel, THE POPE’S CONSPIRACY, a sequel to THE HERETIC, which was my first.

* DXer says … Amerithrax can be understood as a case study as to whether the FBI DC Field Office is “master of its domain” … do you think the FBI has demonstrated mastery in the anthrax investigation? … or did they, like Kramer, simply take the easy way out?
