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

* Simulations (using NIST EDX software) of the weight percentages of the element silicon in the Daschle and New York Post anthrax powders

  • These simulations were performed using NIST’s EDX quantitative analysis software and data from the AFIP lab report.
  • The weight percentage of silicon in the Daschle powder is calculated to be 2.25%. This is slightly higher than the 1.45% released by the FBI.
  • But much more significant than that is the New York Post powder. It is calculated to contain 32.75% silicon. The FBI claim there “was insufficient sample” to determine the quantity of silicon in this powder. This is demonstrably untrue.
  • The reason the FBI do not want people to know the weight percentage of silicon in the New York Post powder can be explained as follows.
    • If they admit 30% content they are then admitting deliberate addition of a silicon chemical for all the attack powders.
    • This does not fit with their prosecution narrative against Dr Ivins.
