    What research was discontinued on October 3, 2001?

    See the WFO memo summarizing the lab notebooks.

    Dr. Ivins explained to the FBI that he knew nothing about it.

      Two Chiefs of Bacteriology, who I have found to be reliable in everything they’ve ever told me going on 3 years, confirm to me that it wasn’t Bacteriology.

        It was done by Aerobiology. In Building 1412. Some did not want it to come out because they feared that USAMRIID would go “down the tubes.” According to one interviewee, one person thought himself above the investigation. It only went on for a short period — what with 9/11, what-have-you, people might misunderstand the dual use implications. Besides, although virulent dried agents were needed to test the level of concentration that would breakthrough the rPa vaccine, if Aerobiology (which could handle live agents) were going to be limited in the end to surrogates (like BG) then what was the point. The interviewee is not certain whether a sample was submitted in response to the subpoena.

        Was it Southern Research Institute that was being considered to contract it out? (I don’t know) See redacted space and consider what phrase fits. There are as many as 6 302s now released on this. Aerobiology got their virulent Ames from Bruce Ivins.

        As always, the document itself and not my characterization should be the guide to understanding. Additional memos will be uploaded (hopefully tonight). For example, the memo above has a total of 5 pages (and not merely the 2 uploaded as I post this comment).

        I recommend that lots more 302s be uploaded so that we can all get on the same page.
