    The DOJ successfully fought back the attempted deposition of their expert — which the DOJ says in its “Response In Opposition” worked on Amerithrax dating to 2005. (but see declarations cited in support which date his work on Amerithrax to 2007).

    Thus, Rachel can keep her case closed and her conclusions untested — untested, that is, by anyone who cannot read.

    the material on the CASE CLOSED blog about Judith McLean (see prior posts linked below) is relevant to an evaluation of the validity of David Willman’s conclusions in his recently published “The Mirage Man” … because Willman himself, in his publicity blurb (see below), shows just how much he relied on the psychic who says … she was granted her abilities by an extraterrestrial being … got sick in 2001 from doing astral recovery work at Ground Zero and in Afghanistan after 9/11 … and was pursued by nasty Taliban entities

    David Willman relies extensively upon Dr. Ivins’ first therapist, Judith M. McLean, who writes of how she acquired her psychic abilities in her book available for sale on Amazon.com — from a being from another planet

    Dr. Gregory Saathoff apparently did not use any of the $38,000 in taxpayer funded expenses to buy the $10 book by Dr. Ivins counselor. Dr. Ivins’ counselor in that book described at length her experiences in 2000 and 2001 and explained that she had been granted her psychic abilities by an alien from a planet . She explained that she was fearful that the spirits that attached to her clients might attach themselves to her. (She worked as an exorcist but sometimes would need the help of her team of “ghost busters.” (She hadn’t received her license until 1999 and then quit a couple years later due to exhaustion from astral travelling).

    https://caseclosedbylewweinstein.wordpress.com/2011/03/22/saathoffs-opinion-as-governments-expert-witness-in-aafia-siddiquis-prosecution/

    The government also relied on Dr. Saathoff for assessing the psychiatric fitness of Aafia Siddiqui.

    Aafia says that she worked on developing anthrax as a weapon for 6 months while at the Karachi Institute of Technology.

    Did she have access to virulent Ames at that institute?

    With Aafia, did Dr. Saathoff do due diligence in separating fact from fiction similar to what he did with Dr. Ivins’ counselor?

    Is the problem really that the government has confidential information? Or is the greater problem that by withholding their documents, their errors in analysis and investigation can’t be pointed out?

    And are we instead then left with the spin of postal inspectors at press conferences and through journalists by David Willman. He incredibly talks about not seeing any credible evidence of infiltration by Dr. Ayman Zawahiri when he hasn’t seen any of the 302s or documents – only documents relating to an Ivins Theory were produced.

    It apparently took Agent Dellefera and his colleagues years before they bothered to get the 16 pages of research by the former Zawahiri associate working alongside Bruce Ivins the week he was experimenting with increasing the lethal factor (LF). By that time, the man who would head of Pakistan and Afghanistan, while head of a DC venture firm Perseus, had invested tens of millions in the scientists’ small Ann Arbor-based company.

    Amerithrax represents the Brothers Bulger redux — and is once again led by Bob Mueller who Mr. Willlman and the investigators tell us was singularly keeping things focused on Dr. Hatfill.

    And if Director Mueller thinks that history is not going to end up getting Amerithrax right, he forgets that Dr. Ayman is expecting to write the history,

    Everyone really wants to get ahead of the curve on the history to be written. They want to be the Tom Foley or Bob Fitzpatrick of Amerithrax. But they really don’t want to continue dragging their feet and playing-hide-the-ball.

    What fool wants to be on the wrong side of a threatened Pearl Harbor?

    Dr. Ivins’ counselor quit the field and left the state the year after 2001 because she was too exhausted from all her astral travelling work in Afghanistan and World Trade Center — it was very tiring being pursued by all those nasty Taliban entities trying to murder her.

    Who drafted the EBAP report?

    None of these panel members contacted the United States District Court Judge Lamberth to withdraw any of it.. And so they are all equally responsible for the content. But who actually was pulling the oar and would have been expected to do basic due diligence of the readily available written material.

    Whitey Bulger Case Shows Law Enforcement Dark Side

    5:00 am July 11, 2011, by Bob Barr

    Football coaching icon Vince Lombardi is credited with observing that in sports, “winning is the only thing.” In our legal system, on the other hand, winning is not everything – seeing that justice is done, is. Yet, as the still-unfolding “Whitey” Bulger case reveals, too often law enforcement and prosecutors adopt a winning-at-all-costs mentality; sometimes with tragic consequences for innocent people.

    James “Whitey” Bulger is the Boston-raised gangster connected with the infamous “Winter Hill Gang,” and who had been on the lam for 16 years before being arrested recently in California. Bulger played both sides – serving also as an FBI informant, even as he bought off law enforcement to avoid prosecution for his myriad crimes, including 19 murders.

    Ordinarily, the capture of a Top Ten suspect like Bulger would be cause for celebration. However, few if any current or former FBI agents connected with the investigation have been seen hoisting a celebratory glass of the bubbly. As one observer explained to the Boston Globe, “It was a big problem when they didn’t have Whitey. It’s a bigger problem now that they do.”

    During his time as an informant, Bulger had used his FBI handlers to weed out his rivals; allowing him to expand an already profitable enterprise. In turn, his handlers looked the other way as he committed violent crimes and peddled illicit drugs.

    Undoubtedly, reports that Bulger already is talking is not welcome news to persons connected with his old Winter Hill Gang. And the fear in the FBI is that Bulger’s arrest could replay the embarrassment and shame that fell on the bureau a decade ago.

    The sordid mess reads like a Hollywood script; and in fact provided the basis for the 2006 Oscar-winning film, The Departed. For victims of the Bulger-FBI cabal, however, the results were all-too real.

    In fact, evidence that four men convicted of murder in Boston three decades earlier were in fact innocent, prompted a 2000 investigation by the House of Representatives. The inquiry was led by then-chairman of the Government Reform and Oversight Committee, Dan Burton (R-IN); I was vice-chairman of the committee.

    The committee’s investigation delved into how the FBI could allow men it knew to be innocent, could spend 30 years in jail. During the hearings, a former FBI agent, H. Paul Rico, who knew the men were innocent but did not intervene because of his connections to those responsible, was offered the opportunity to apologize for his role in sending the innocent men to prison. Rico declined, and callously replied, “What do you want, tears?”

    Rico subsequently was indicted for his part in the 1981 murder of Roger Wheeler, allegedly carried out at the direction of Bulger and other gang members in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Local investigators complained the FBI tried to prevent them from solving the crime because it was protecting the mobsters responsible.

    Rico would die before ever standing trial; but in 2007 a federal judge ordered the government to pay more than $100 million in damages to the wrongly-convicted men, two of whom died while incarcerated.

    John Connolly, another former FBI agent connected to the Winter Hill Gang, was convicted in 2002 for racketeering. Just six years later, Connolly was convicted of second-degree murder for his part in tipping off Bulger to a witness in the case being built against him. Bulger and his associates had the witness killed.

    The FBI’s blind zeal to catch bad guys in this instance has been a stain on an excellent law enforcement agency; and ruined the lives of several innocent people in the process. Bulger’s capture hopefully will result in his finally answering for his many crimes. It also should serve as a reminder to all law enforcement officers and prosecutors, that “winning” at all costs is a hollow victory, indeed.

    Given the key witness relied upon by Dr. Saathoff and FBI Quantico colleagues, would it be so surprising to learn that Dr. Ayman and Anwar regularly used Skype to have a giggle about the FBI’s Amerithrax investigation?

    To err is human. But here Dr. Saathoff, the EBAP panel, FBI Quantico investigators, DOJ prosecutors, David Willman and FBI Director Mueller never corrected their mistake. And they are actively trying to keep it from coming to light.
