    Laurie Garrett says of Iraq:

    “Virtually every phrase in the 2002 NIE would turn out to be a lie based on a single dubious source, or a highly biased interpretation of a set of loosely connected facts.”

    Where is he now? His laboratory technique was reported to be poor by one person who knew him. Then in prison he was out of the field for 7 years.

    We have heard from Dr. Ayman’s sister Omnaya, the oncologist, when she recently eloquently criticized the United States for not bring Bin Laden to trial.

    But reporters should intervew Heba Zawahiri in the microbiology department.

    Specifically, they should ask her if she taught Tarek Hamouda, supplied virulent Ames by Bruce Ivins, and what his views on Dr. Ayman’s work were.

    Tarek’s wife was on the faculty of the dental school. They lived in Cairo for a decade after graduated from Cairo Medical where Dr. Ayman recruited.

    Better yet, reporters should ask Tarek himself. Certainly, James Baker who arranged the supply of virulent Ames from Bruce Ivins is not reticent about giving his views.

    Dr. Zawahiri comes from a very distinguished and accomplished background, His mother married professor of pharmacology Dr. Rabei al-Zawahiri who comes from a family of doctors, pharmacists, chemists, judges, diplomats, and MPs. Her husband’s uncle, Sheik Mohamed al-Ahmadi al-Zawahiri, was a renowned pharmacologist and was Grand Imam of al-Azhar from 1929 till 1935. Azzam belonged to a wealthy family of scholars and diplomats. Her father, Abdul-Wahab Azzam was president of Cairo University and King Saud University in Riyadh as well as ambassador to Pakistan, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia. Her uncle, Dr. Abdul-Rahman Azzam, was the Arab League’s first Secretary General.

    The couple had five children, Ayman and his twin sister Omneya being the eldest. They both graduated from the Faculty of Medicine. The other girl, Heba, is a doctor, and the two other sons are both engineers. Ayman al-Zawahiri was the leader of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad which he officially merged with al-Qaeda in 1998, becoming the group’s second-in-command and always described as its brains and strategic commander.

    NBC: Who is Ayman al-Zawahiri? – World news – Terrorism –

    Mar 25, 2004 … Ayman al-Zawahiri is Osama bin Laden’s No. … Family: A twin, his sister, Omnaya Hiba, is an oncologist and professor. Of his two brothers, ……/who-ayman-al-zawahiri/

    “Ayman grew up in green, leafy Maadi with his twin sister Omneya, his sister Heba (who went on to become a physician) and his brothers Mohammed and Hussein, who trained as architects. This image of a young Ayman the boy who loved his mother’s amazing cooking and devoured both cartoons and Disney movies is the one seared in his uncle’s selective memory. To Mahfouz Azzam, Ayman will always be the well-bred, decent, loving young man.”

    Dr. Bruce Ivins was ordered by a superior to provide virulent Ames to Tarek, a non-citizen, a scientist who has never denied that he is a former Zawahiri associate (and I contacted him directly to inquire on such matters).

    Dr. Ivins had no notice that the scientist was not a citizen until after he had arrived.

    Who approved the supply of virulent Ames without requiring the usual vetting? He was a managerial employee of USAMRIID acting in the usual course of his duties, wasn’t he?

    Wasn’t that negligent on its face to have Bruce Ivins being required to provide virulent Ames to a non-citizen and approval done after the scientists’ arrival?

    Doesn’t the documentary evidence showing that the key 16 pages on the subject was not obtained by the FBI until February 2005 suggest that Amerithrax is the biggest FBI/CIA intelligence failure in the history of the United States?
