******

Mr. Schactman conducted several dozen interviews and reviewed 3500 pages. Noah says he’s not sure whether they got the wrong/right guy. He says that even lead agents admit the case is kind of shaky.

Excerpts from the interview …

  • “This is not the kind of case I could ever see being won in court.”
  • The authorities never figured out …
    • what his motive would be,
    • or how he would have brewed this up,
    • or when he would have brewed this up.
  • Many scientists “were deeply, deeply critical” at how the investigation turned out and how their work was used.
  • Noah explains that there were lots of clones of RMR-1029 around.
  • He notes that Ivins spent years under FBI scrutiny without a lawyer.
  • He says that they had known for a long time he was a suicide risk.
  • Almost to a man, his co-workers don’t believe he did it — not attitude, not means, not equipment.

* The GAO should obtain colored copies of the April 2002 sample submission (that Ivins says was submitted by his assistant) to see the color ink that was used.

Hijackers_Timeline_OCR.pdf

  • The FBI has recently posted a trove of documents (298 pages) related to 9/11 including a detailed chronology of the hijackers movements.  The documents also include details about their trips to Vegas and Spain that have not previously been released.
  • Simply called “Hijackers Timeline,” the chronology is super detailed and begins with the hijackers individual births and includes every action that the FBI can find a record for, such as individual ATM withdrawals, all reservations they made, DMV records, training flights, gym memberships and the final events leading to the 9/11 flights.
  • The printed document is dated November 14, 2003, but appears to have been compiled in mid-October 2001 (the most recent date mentioned in it is October 22, 2001), when the FBI was just starting to understand the backgrounds of the hijackers, and it contains almost no information from the CIA, NSA, or other agencies.
