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

* DXer on … Dr. Bruce Ivins’ alibi … and the withholding of information required by law to be disclosed … LMW: why are DOJ/FBI withholding these facts? … Congressman Holt: “the FBI has consistently botched and bungled this investigation from the beginning”

mailboxes in Princeton ... a long way from Frederick ... especially if you're still in Frederick when the letters were mailed

DXer comments …

  • To simplify the matter — so that we can get all get on the same page — consider this.
  • AUSA Rachel Lieber and Kenneth Kohl have not disclosed to you the time of an email they rely upon that Bruce Ivins wrote to Mara Linscott on September 17, 2001.
  • Nor have they disclosed the times and content of other emails he wrote the day they allege he traveled to Princeton to mail the letters sometime after 7 p.m. in the evening.
  • The investigators and prosecutors would not disclose the alleged “window of mailing” to Dr. Ivins or his attorney until after his suicide.  It was left open to include a several day period … until after Dr. Ivins’ death.
  • If they had disclosed that the mailing occurred after 7 p.m., the issue of Dr. Ivins’ alibi could have been fairly considered based on the documentary evidence.

The DOJ and FBI should disclose a redacted copy of those emails

— showing the time they were sent —

without further delay.

The law (FOIA) requires it.

LMW COMMENT …

Why don’t our Justice Department and the FBI feel obligated to follow the law? I call that covering up the truth. Congressman Holt called it a  “botched and bungled investigation.”  See …

* Congressman Holt’s letter to FBI Director Mueller: ” … it now appears that the FBI—which has consistently botched and bungled this case from the beginning—may be seeking to try to steer or otherwise pressure the NAS panel to reach a conclusion desired by the Bureau. I ask that you meet with me this week to explain the FBI’s troubling conduct in this matter …”

    AUSA Rachel Lieber and Kenneth Kohl have not disclosed to you the time of an email they rely upon that Bruce Ivins wrote to Mara Linscott on September 17, 2001. (USAMRIID denies AUSA Lieber’s claim in her investigative summary that it was written on his work computer).

    Nor have they disclosed the times and content of other emails he wrote the day they allege he traveled to Princeton to mail the letters sometime after 7 p.m. in the evening.

    The investigators and prosecutors would not disclose the alleged “window of mailing” to Dr. Ivins or his attorney until after his suicide. It was left open to include a several day period … until after Dr. Ivins’ death.

    If they had disclosed that the mailing occurred after 7 p.m., the issue of Dr. Ivins’ alibi could have been fairly considered based on the documentary evidence.

    The DOJ and FBI should disclose a copy of those emails — showing the time they were sent — without further delay.

    The law (FOIA) requires it. It has been nearly a year since the blog’s graphic artist submitted a FOIA for the request.

    Professional researchers and journalists will appreciate that the emails that Dr. Ivins sent to Mara on September 17, 2001 are subject to production under FOIA — and indeed were extensively relied upon by the DOJ in outlining its theory. Hundreds of emails were produced but not these. He or she would join others in requesting that they be produced so that the timeline on that day are established, to the extent possible, through documentary evidence. (Production of the emails with headers would even show the computer on which they were sent). Contrary to anyone’s understanding of my earlier post, I make no assumption as to what the documents, once produced, will show — to include the time they were sent.

    On this point, in considering the issue of alibi, one would want to obtain and read any and all the 302s relating to interviews of the children and Diane. As a historical counterexample, see the 302s relating to the interviews of David Kaczynski.

      And how late into the early morning hours of September 18th would have made it impossible for Ivins to SUBSEQUENTLY drive up to the Princeton, NJ mailbox
      AND RETURN early enough to show up for work on September 18th?

        His wife and children confirm he never travelled overnight. They have always consistently maintained his innocence. See, e.g., Diane’s private note to Bruce when he went to sleep. Anyone who has lived in a small house with 3 adults knows that one cannot be gone all night, enter/ exit a car, and not be noticed. Dr. Ivins’ mention of “nocturnal wanderings” in the evening is entirely different. It is a simple matter to come and go (especially walking) in the evening. The 302s of interviews of Diane and the children have been withheld in order to maintain the narrative. He arrived at 7 a.m. the next day.

        That, and the mailing of the AMI letter(s) predated 9/11.
