UPDATE … the NAS report on the FBI’s anthrax science

will NOT be issued on 10/24 !!!

******

10/26 … LMW to NAS … I’ve been told that the FBI/NAS contract has been extended. Is this true? Until when? At whose initiative? For what reason? When do you now anticipate the report will be released?

10/21 #3 … email FROM LMW TO Steven Kendall … STEVE … Thanks for responding. But why is the report not ready on October 24 as scheduled (ie, 18 months)? Don’t you think you owe us some explanation for your failure to meet your target? … LEW

10/21 #2 … FROM Steven Kendall, NAS Senior Program Associate … We anticipate that the report will be issued by the end of the year.

10/21 #1 … email sent FROM LMW to NAS … Will the NAS issue its report on October 24? If not, when?

  • the official title of the NAS study is … Review of the Scientific Approaches used during the FBI’s Investigation of the 2001 Bacillus Anthracis Mailings
  • The project began April 24, 2009 and has a duration of 18 months
  • The report is thus due on October 24, 2010
  • no announcement has been made that the report will or will not be issued on schedule
  • The last meeting of the NAS Committee was June 2, 2010,
  • It was a closed meeting, after which no announcement was made.
  • by the terms of the NAS contract with the FBI, which is paying for the review and has established the rules, the NAS is not permitted to draw any conclusions regarding the guilt or innocence of Dr. Bruce Ivins or any other person(s).

The FBI’s case against Dr. Ivins is clearly 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 perhaps more plausible than the FBI’s unproven assertions.
