* FBI Response to Report by “Independent” Expert Behavioral Analysis Panel on 2001 Anthrax Letters … how disingenuous is it of the FBI to call this panel “independent” when Dr. Saathoff, the chairman of the panel is an FBI consultant?

FBI Director Mueller & FBI Consultant Saathoff … INDEPENDENT ???


FBI Response to Report by Independent Expert Behavioral Analysis Panel on 2001 Anthrax Letters …

  • “The FBI appreciates the efforts, time, and expertise of the panel and its highly respected chair and members.
  • The panel’s analysis, findings, and recommendations provide important insight that will further contribute to the public’s understanding of the investigation into the deadly anthrax mailings.
  • The report also provides valuable perspectives that may be useful in preventing future attacks—in addition to what the government has already learned in the course of the investigation.”

The FBI’s publicly presented case against Dr. Ivins offers no forensic evidence, no witnesses, an impossible timeline, science that proves innocence instead of guilt, and now unsubstantiated psychobabble.

How disingenuous is it for the FBI to call the recent report by the Expert Behavioral Analysis Panel “independent.”

see prior post …

* Dr. Greg Saathoff, presenting today on Amerithrax, is an FBI consultant

So what really happened?

And why doesn’t the FBI offer America a credible story?

As regular readers of this blog well know, 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.
