LMW COMMENT …

When the FBI keeps vital information secret, it behooves us to know why they have done so. In particular, what connection is there between the withholding of this information and the FBI continuing to assert their unproven conclusion that “Dr. Ivins was the only person responsible for these attacks.”

* why did the FBI keep evidence of John Ezzell’s dried powder from the NAS?

Posted by Lew Weinstein on March 21, 2011

******

Throughout the investigation the FBI kept secret that the FBI’s anthrax expert at USAMRIID, John Ezzell, had made a dried powder out of RMR 1029 (which was the flask used for all wet aerosol challenges with Ames at USAMRIID from 1997 until 2002).  In the 9600 pages provided to the NAS, the FBI withheld all documents relating to this from the NAS.  Did the FBI scientists do this for national security reasons — or to cover their ass?
