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

* DXer asks … is Abderraouf ben Habib Jdey the anthrax mailer?

LMW COMMENT …

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 doesn’t the FBI offer America a credible story?

I can imagine only 3 possible “actual” scenarios …

  1. The FBI has more evidence against Dr. Ivins but is, for some undisclosed reason, withholding that evidence … POSSIBLE BUT NOT SO LIKELY
  2. The FBI, despite the most expensive and extensive investigation in its history, has not solved the case and has no idea who prepared and mailed the anthrax letters that killed 5 Americans in 2001 … EVEN LESS LIKELY
  3. The FBI knows who did it (not Dr. Ivins) but is covering up the actual perpetrators, for undisclosed reasons … THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO

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 regarding Dr. Ivins.

    Special Prosecutor Mueller has named Aaron Zebley to help him in his current assignment to investigate possible obstruction of justice by the President of the United States. Attorney Zebley, a former FBI Agent, “was designated as the case agent in the terrorism case involving Zacarias Moussaoui, according to a bio on the website of the University of Virginia Law School.”

    From January 1998 to April 2005, he was a Special Agent with the FBI in the New York City Field Office, and was assigned to counterterrorism investigations. He then testified at Moussaoui’s trial in 2006.

    Personally, I think Adnan El-Shukrijumah was the Fall 2001 anthrax mailer, not Jdey, as my friend Ken theorizes. But even the FBI agrees that Jdey was part of the 911 operation and then was pulled back, though not for cold feet. His superiors had some other mission in mind perhaps.

    [One detainee has said that he heard that Jdey was the shoe bomber that brought down the plane out of New York to Dominican Republic in Fall 2001. NYC Field Office head Kallstrom (a well-funded Trump supporter), however, was quite convinced that the tail of the plane just fell off, coincidentally where AQ shoe bombers typically sat.]

    When Special Prosecutor Aaron Zebley testified in 2006 that the FBI could have stopped 911 if Moussaoui had confessed in early August 2001, didn’t he know that 911 operative Jdey had been detained? And then released? My intelligence source says he did.

    Senator Leahy has said that when the FBI screws up, they just mark it classified and it doesn’t come to light. (That, by the way, then permits this myth-telling so important to career advancement).

    Was the dropped ball relating to Jdey’s release an untold story that should now be told?

    Might it bear on the Al Qaeda anthrax threat as Ken Dillon suggests?

    Shouldn’t protecting the country from a mass attack trump CYA considerations among career-minded FBI officials so often frustrated by difficult mysteries posed by determined terrorists?

    This week the FBI has doubled the reward for some woman living openly in Cuba to $2 million. The thought is that by drawing attention to the issue it will increase the likelihood of her being brought to justice.

    The same is true in regard to Jdey, isn’t it? Isn’t the law enforcement mission FURTHERED, rather than impeded, by providing the background relating to the importance that he be located?

    The suit brought in federal district court against the FBI seeks disclosure of such information.

    “The trip to Maine beggars explanation; Atta nearly wrecked the whole plot by going. The best explanation law enforcement has been able to devise for the trip was that Atta somehow thought it would lessen his exposure to airport security. In fact, he doubled his exposure because he had to go through a separate security check upon arrival and transfer at Logan.”

    When Ken Dillon first pointed out Jdey to me, I said something like “wow” — he was part of the “planes operation” until being pulled back in August, he was connected to Hambali and KSM… he was connected to everyone that mattered.

    His whereabouts went missing at the time of the mailings.

    And then 10 years later we learn he was detained at the same time as Moussaoui (with biology textbooks) but then released….

    But nothing to see here folks. Dr. Majidi says everyone else could be excluded and Dr. Ivins must be the guy. By process of elimination.

    He was eliminated all right.

    Judging by this translation of a 1999 letter, Jdey was a committed operative willing to sacrifice his life for the cause. He quotes the Blind Sheik and emphasizes the importance to him that the Blind Sheik be released. The Blind Sheik’s detention was noted by Attorney Montasser Al-Zayat as related to the reason Dr. Ayman would be using anthrax. He said Dr. Ayman was motivated by the detention of senior EIJ leaders, to include the Blind Sheik (the Blind Sheik was their spiritual guide at the same time he was the spiritual guide for the Egyptian Islamic Group). One cannot possibly weight the competing hypotheses relating to Amerithrax without understanding Al Qaeda’s plan to use anthrax in connection with the detention of the senior EIJ people. Lead investigator Lambert was correct that compartmentalizing the investigation would prevent investigators from connecting the dots.

    In the name of Allah the Merciful the Compassionate
    Thursday, 1st of Ramadan 1420H., corresponding to December, 8th 1999
    Praise to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds
    Peace, mercy and blessing of Allah be upon you

    My dear brothers, I wanted through this to leave you a few words, may Allah help us benefit from them, asking Allah to use them as a continuous charity.

    Allah the Almighty says in His Holy Book, “And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?- Men, Women, and children, whose cry is: “our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise us from thee one who will protect; and raise for us from thee one who will help”.

    From the beginning of Mohammed’s message, peace and blessing be upon him until now, the Muslim nation has always been an aspiration desired among the Jews, the Crusaders, and their allies. They meet in their laboratories (United Nations and black house of America (White House) and others), to cook their poisonous plans. They present these plans on a golden plate, claiming they are the necessary solutions to our crises and problems. Their allies received them and applied them on our nations. Some verses from the Koran were cited in support. Praise to Allah, who showed us the right way and blessed us with Islam.

    It is Islam which opened my eyes and heart for the springs of knowledge. “You all received eyesight from God, he who decides to use it benefits and he who decides not to does not benefit”. I realized this after all of these years looking for the truth. After reviewing the materialistic infidel Western intellect, and Arab secular experiments and other ideologies and ideas, I realized that Islam is the right ideology for mankind. I traveled a long way to reach this conclusion. I would like to write it for you but I have difficulty in expressing myself, and don’t want to take too much of your time.

    You know that the Muslim nation is going through a hard period of its history. The nation lost it status and role in world society, and became an easy target for Jews, Christians and their allies. They occupied our land, took our wealth, destroyed our homes and colonized our Holy sites. They corrupted our ethics, even our women and children.

    I swear my brothers; the Jews thought of everything. Imagine my brothers, they even destroyed our local agriculture and offered their agricultural crop, which damaged and destroyed our fertile land. Our blessed Prophet told us about our shameful present status in this Hadeeth, “Nations will attack you from all directions like a meal eaten from all sides; not because you will be few then, on the contrary, you will be too many. But you will be as the stream scum, no courage in your hearts. You will love life more than you love death”. Yes, we loved our life to the extent that we forgot the hereafter.

    Praise to Allah who showed me the way to the right path and guided my heart to Jihad. My brothers, every time we pronounce the word Jihad, the enemies become frightened. They love life and safeguard it like we safeguard life after death. So let us raise the horror in their hearts; perhaps God will halt their force and cure our hearts.

    My brothers, every time I wake up in the morning and remember the disasters of our nation, I feel very anxious and bitter. I want the earth to open and swallow me. Without patience and prayers, something would have happened to me. When the merchants of illusions met to plan new plots for you after they failed in their previous experiments, they tried socialism, nationalism, liberalism and others. But you know the results, one disaster after another. They created economic crises, escalating debts, social and moral crises, underdevelopment, poverty, literacy, etc. All of these plans are prepared by the Jews and Christians, and were handed to our oppressor leaders. They presented them to us under false pretenses to prolong the nation’s destruction and death. [a verse from the quraan] That’s why I pledged to Allah not to abandon the cause of Jihad, and to sacrifice myself for the Almighty “Allah”.

    I remind you, my brothers, with the advice of our father ‘Omar ‘Abd Al-Rahman (may Allah release him from his capture), about the Americans and their allies. “Sever the bond of their assault, tear them to pieces, destroy their economy, burn their companies, destroy their interests, sink their ships, shoot down their airplanes, kill them on the ground, on the sea and in the air (kill them wherever you find them, take them, encircle them and ambush them anywhere you can). Fight those infidels (let them find harshness in you), (fight them, and Allah will punish them with your hands, disgrace them, help you to be victorious over them, heal the breasts of the believers and still the indignation of their hearts, for Allah will turn (in mercy)”.

    Forgive me, my brothers, if I made a mistake on your behalf; I advise you with God-devoutness and reliance on him. Do not stay with your hands tied, call for Jihad and prepare for Al-Jana (heaven), as wide as the heavens and earth Allah prepared for the believers. Forgive me my poor style of writing, I wanted to write more but I do not want to take much of your time. I remind you that our nation is occupied and violated. They corrupted our lives now and in the hereafter. All of this is a result of what we committed ourselves to by turning our backs to Jihad. Stand up, dear brother, don’t be afraid of their missiles and soldiers; they are cowards. If you ignore this matter, Allah will bring other nations different from us. Come on brothers, do what you can, even if throwing rocks. Do not be afraid, victory is near, Allah willing. Pray for us, may Allah accept us and forgive our sins.
    Our final prayer is Praise be to Allah, the cherisher and sustainer of the worlds.

    Your brother, ‘Abd Al-Raouf Al-Tunusi

    The NAS quotes the Amerithrax Summary, reminding one that (as Old Atlantic has emphasized) the FBI premised their analysis on a faulty and insupportable assumption that the processor is the same as the mailer. Garbage in, garbage out .. 10 years later.

    “These findings meant that the anthrax mailer must have possessed significant technical skill” (USDOJ, 2010, p. 14).

    The NAS disagreed with the FBI’s conclusion finding there was no scientific basis for it.

    Does the Rewards for Justice have any application to these mailings — such as the incendiary envelope addressed to Napolitano, head of Homeland Security? I personally think of them as a trifle that is best ignored (and no hoax letters should ever be reported).

    But it would be a wonderful irony given the message in the letters if a reward led the perpetrator’s arrest and conviction.
