    “SRI, former head of USAMRIID” was Dr. Dave Franz.

    SRI was the subcontractor (for the BL-3 Ames work) for the DARPA-funded Center for Biodefense at GMU.

    Dr. Ivins’ Former Colleague #2 Patricia Fellows — and on who the FBI relies heavily in spinning its Ivins Theory — went to head the BL-3 lab there.

    Dr. Ali Al-Timimi (who defense counsel Turley characterizes in filed court filing as the “other anthrax weapons suspect”) shared a suite with the leading bioweaponeer/ Ames researchers at Center for Biodefense. Those researchers filed a patent application for concentrating anthrax using silica in the culture medium.

    Both of those patent applicants, famed Russian bioweaponeer Dr. Alibek and Dr. Bailey, who had been acting Commander at USAMRIID and was the top biothreat assessment person, had been Battelle consultants in 1999. In 1999, Dr. Al-Timimi held a security clearance for classified work for the Navy. He had served as the assistant for the White House Chief of Staff, Andrew Card who took an extremely hands-on approach to issues such as NSA wiretapping of Al-Timimi and others.

    Dr. Burans was head of the Naval biodefense effort. He was the one in charge with testing anthrax grown in different culture medium.

    The Amerithrax investigation was rife with conflict of interest notwithstanding the good faith of the individuals involved.

    The Government Accountability Office will not have done its job if, like the NAS, it punts on the profound conflict of interest issues raised.

    To take a single example: It was the FBI’s anthrax expert who made a dried aerosol powder out of Flask 1029 for DARPA. It was his assistant’s samples of keen interest.

      Dr. Burans is the individual listed as “US Navy Medical Research Detachment, Lima Peru”

      Every participant at the key planning session was from an organization who provably had been directly the victim of the infiltration of US (and UK) biodefense by Ayman Zawahiri. Even Porton and Dugway.

      Ayman Zawahiri is a master strategist. The country underestimates him at its great peril. Ayman viewed it as required by the koran to use the weapon of his enemy. It will take scientists like Dave F. and John E. to rise above a normal CYA reaction to meet the threat by rolling up their sleeves and getting to the probative details. Meaningless, self-serving PR releases such as from the genomics people this week are part of the problem, not the solution. Only 700 had been deemed to have had access to Ames in the first place (see graphic). So how it is suddenly a big revelation that it had been narrowed to “up to 377.” While it narrows genetics to Flask 1029, under the view of those researchers (but not the NAS), the question then presented is who was supplied Ames from that Flask and had access to that anthrax in unlocked refrigerators.
