    Mr. Stephen Little’s experience was similar:

    Q “You mentioned having gone on TDY’s with Dr. Ivins and then seeing him daily at work and seeing him on very, very rare social occasions outside of work. Did you ever notice or observe Dr. Ivins having any problem with alcohol consumption?

    A No.”

    Mr. Little explained that Dr. Ivins did not order wine when out with a group with others.

  2. DXer said

    This deposition — and not merely this brief excerpt — is available to any requester under FOIA directed to USAMRIID.

  3. DXer said

    Dr. Vahid Majidi knows Dr. Ivins better than Dr. Byrne. … and he relies upon on the account of the woman who has written a book that explains that in 2001 she taking instructions from an alien at night.

  4. DXer said

    Putting aside legal issues relating to a claim, for example, involving the reliance on the first counselor, it is useful to link the documentary evidence so that it can be distinguished from the summary of the mere prosecutorial assertions such as in David Willman’s book.

    For example, in stead of a code, you see that all those letters were not in fact double-lined. Instead of no explanation for being in the lab, you see the lab notebook pages withheld until May 11, 2011 showing what he was doing on each of those days in the lab. Instead of Bruce being delusional, it was his counselor who was delusional. Dr. Saathoff met with the Quantico people and Amerithrax investigators on July 17, 2007 planning their strategy against Ivins. About 4 years today. They met at U of Va. Soon 3 years will have passed since his death.

    .
    Kirkus’ Review summarize: “Much of the narrative reads like a brief for the prosecution, but in the process of trying to get to the bottom of the anthrax attacks, Willman makes clear that many involved in the investigation acted incompetently, maliciously or irresponsibly, including cocksure but ignorant members of the national media and FBI officials, who seem to have settled on the guilt of another obscure scientist, thus doing harm to the investigation by limiting its purview.”
    .
    An Ivins Theory is merely Hatfill Theory Redux. The “Hatfill Theory” was part of the same unstoppable train wreck as the “Ivins Theory.” There was a change of cars (investigators), but it was the same flawed train of reasoning and the investigators never overcame the earlier truncated emphasis of the investigation.

    Isn’t it too much at stake to be content with the latest investigators’ position that they do not know the what, how or why of the anthrax mailings?

    http://www.globalsecuritynewswire.org/gsn/nw_20110518_3088.php

    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 …

    In addition to helping the FBI with Amerithrax, the psychic relied upon by David Willman helped with 911 by her astral travelling and retrieval of etheric body parts at Ground Zero … She reports she was granted her psychic abilities by a being claiming to be an extraterrestrial …

    To request an autographed copy of the book and urge that Mr. Willman use his experience as an investigative journalist to investigate the issues he has not yet addressed, you can go to hear him speak.

    Who knows? After further investigation, and studying the newly produced document about what Dr. Ivins was really doing on the nights that the DOJ speculated, without basis, that he was making a dried powdered anthrax, he might change his mind.

    Some issues and documents that Mr. Willman hopefully will someday address are below. The country will benefit from his insights on the issues given the wide reading he has done on the subject of Amerithrax generally and access to the investigators and prosecutors accusing Dr. Ivins.

    Have Mr. Willman and the investigators serving as his sources learned from history regarding the Hatfill Theory — or merely recounted it?

    The FBI’s key genetics experts debunk the FBI’s argument that the genetics points to Ivins in particular.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the documentary evidence of Agent Lambert’s concern … that the compartmentalization of the investigative squads ordered by Director Mueller would prevent investigators from connecting the dots.

    Dr. Greg Saathoff, whose report Mr. Willman relies on heavily, is a longtime partner of FBI Quantico and instead spins his report as independent.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the documentary evidence produced in May 2011 that now shows what Dr. Ivins was doing in the B3 and instead bought into the FBI’s mistaken narrative that Ivins had no reason to be in the B3 on those nights.

    .
    Instead, Mr. Willman reiterates the FBI’s false claim that the time in the B3 was unexplained. This, without anything more, demolishes the FBI’s and Mr. Willman’s “Ivins Theory” … on the facts rather the bullshit theory he was “creepy.”
    How could the longtime FBI Quantico psychiatrists or the author not have requested from the FBI the record showing what Dr. Ivins was actually doing on the nights that the investigators, without basis, speculated he was making a powdered anthrax?
    .
    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere notes or even mentions that anthrax in the New York Post letter was 10% silica or silicates. Mr. Willman thoughtfully addresses the general question of the Silicon Signature as part of an Appendix that is important not to overlook. It appears after the Epilogue.

    The Technical Review Panel Summary notes that the NY Post sample had apparently been treated with hydrophilic silica. The term “weaponization” is used as a straw man to avoid the potential key probativeness of the silicon signature.

    .
    To credit that the silicon signature did not relate to “weaponization” – as many of us do — does not avoid the fact that it is potentially highly probative, and without more tends to be exculpatory of Dr. Ivins. For example, if it relates to “microencapsulation” using hydrophilic silica, that might be a huge lead.
    .
    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere notes that experts Weber and Velsko, key experts on the nonmicrobiological signature signature, think that further study is warranted to determine the source of the Silicon Signature.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere mentions the 302 interview statement that checking the health of the animals typically would take 2 hours and was a one person job.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the sworn deposition testimony in the Stevens v. United States case casting doubt on the FBI’s Ivins Theory. Does he even quote the former chiefs of bacteriology who all agree — to a man — that he has been wrongfully accused?

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses why US Attorney Taylor in explaining Ivins’ overtime in Fall 2001, including November and December, did not realize that the 2-person rule that in 2002 precluded such overtime. In his FOIA to the Army, he did not seek access records from the earlier or later period.

    Source: “An eye on safety” by Alison Walker … http://www.fredericknewspost.com/sections/special_sections/detrick/day3.htm
    “Better enforcement … In 2002, USAMRIID officials mandated a two-person rule, which creates peer pressure to follow safety protocol by requiring material be handled by two people of equal experience, training and qualification. USAMRIID is phasing out the rule due to space and staff limitations, replacing the physical presence of another person with video surveillance.”

    As an example, he nowhere addresses that Dr. Ivins had no access to the filters and thus there would have been traces in the filters if the anthrax had been made in that B3.

    David Willman in Mirage Man interviewed Dr. Ivins’ brother Charles, who told me about the two undercover FBI agents who had befriended him and Bruce on the cruise. Here is an email Dr. Ivins wrote to one of the agents.

    According to this email, Dr. Ivins was not in fact taking the sleeping aid ambien in Fall 2001.

    David Willman in Mirage Man no where addresses the weaponized anthrax that Dr. Ivins says he had heard had been shipped to Ft. Detrick and then went missing.

    https://caseclosedbylewweinstein.wordpress.com/2010/09/27/will-it-take-congressional-subpena-power-to-fill-in-the-blanks-in-the-email-asking-about-weaponized-anthrax-that-came-to-detrick-and-then-was-shipped-out-and-some-was-missing/

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses that USAMRIID’s John Ezzell, the FBI’s anthrax expert, prior to 9/11, made a dried aerosol using Ames supplied by Bruce Ivins and sent to Johns-Hopkins Applied Physics. He never addresses whether those spores show a silicon signature.

    Where does Mr. Willman address Ivins’ email of 6-28-05 that discusses powder deemed closest to attack anthrax … in which Ivins says, “but I told ??? we didn’t make spore powder”

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the email in which Dr. Ivins discusses missing Ames anthrax.

    Was it the FBI’s anthrax expert who made a dried aerosol out of Flask 1029 who told Dr. Ivins not to get his “panties in a bind over this”?

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that the FBI removed the original of Lab Notebook 4010 (and other notebooks that were subpoenaed) without leaving a copy. Why won’t the FBI produce the relevant pages from the lab notebooks it took?


    .
    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere explains that Daniel Seikaly pled the Fifth Amendment in connection with the leaks relating to Hatfill or notes that his daughter represented “anthrax weapons suspect” Ali Timimi pro bono.

    .
    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses why the US Attorney and AP created the impression that the Federal Eagle stamp was uniquely sold in Ivins’ post office (near USAMRIID) when it in fact was sold throughout Maryland and Virginia. This misstatement by the US Attorney (picked up by AP) was as great as any misstep in connection with a “Hatfill Theory”.

    .
    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses why the FBI failed to disclose that the photocopier mentioned in the Amerithrax Summary could be excluded as the source of the Amerithrax letters. That is the sort of evidence that makes for a strong scientific case — or demolishes one. He instead relies on the much less significant issue of “tracks” and the investigators relied upon apparently do not realize that copies made in September and October 2001 could have been compared, even if the machines were not checked until February 2002.


    .
    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses why the FBI let USAMRIID General John Parker’s false claim that USAMRIID did not make dried powder stand — when the FBI and the scientists overseeing the investigation knew its own expert had made dried powdered aerosol using Ames.


    .
    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the identity of the colleague with whom Dr. Heine says he did research regarding antifoam in creating aerosols or Dr. Heine’s report that the FBI falsely told Dr. Ivins that Dr. Heine had accused him of the anthrax mailings. This is a huge issue because the investigators then used Dr. Ivins’ rage as proof of his guilt — rather than evidence of his innocence.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses why the FBI never disclosed the email withheld for 2 years that shows Dr. Ivins knew that 5 ml of virulent Ames had been taken from Building 1412.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the email asking about weaponized anthrax that came to Detrick and then was shipped out and some was missing.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere, given that the FBI estimates that up to 377 had access required elimination (allowing for some duplication who had access in both 1425 and 1412), why US Taylor falsely claimed that only 100 needed to be eliminated — only those with access at Building 1425.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the reason the location of the flasks (initially there were two flasks) was carefully whited out so as to change its location from Building 1412 to Building 1425.

    https://caseclosedbylewweinstein.wordpress.com/2009/07/25/usamriid-rmr-records-flask-1029/

    https://caseclosedbylewweinstein.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/87_aaa_missing-ames_1.jp

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses what happened to the other slant sent from Texas, or interviews the original researcher who obtained the slants from Texas who then went to work for the CIA.


    David Willman nowhere addresses Dr. Ivins’ concern expressed to a superior that he was missing samples — only to be told to shut up. He never identifies the superior telling Ivins that everything was under control.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses where the research on the corona plasma discharge and sonicator on Ames spores supplied by Bruce Ivins was conducted for DARPA. He nowhere addresses where else the DARPA aerosol studies using dried powder were done. Given the performance of the dried aerosol, the technical question of whether the floatability is due to use of a CPD or sonicator should be addressed by the scientific experts.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that the only expert interviewed by the FBI about the code in the letters for which documents were produced disagreed with the FBI’s theory of code in the letters and that all the letters needed for the FBI’s interpretation of the code were NOT in fact double-lined.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses why the FBI was asking everyone whether they had seen olive oil in one of the aerosol rooms.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses whether olive oil was what the bloodhounds smelled at Denny’s when the FBI assumed they were tracking Steve Hatfill who had visited the day before.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the 16 pages which were not obtained by the FBI until February 2005.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the spraydrying documents on Al-Hawsawi’s laptop.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses Rauf Ahmad’s notes and handwritten letter (he was one of the scientists working for Ayman Zawahiri).


    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the typed correspondence from a later visit by Rauf Ahmad indicating that he had successfully achieved the targets.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses Ali Mohammed, the head of intelligence for Egyptian Islamic Jihad who had a document on his computer seized by the FBI that outlined principles of cell security that would be followed, trained Dahab, a Cairo medical drop-out, to make deadly letters.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the Egyptian visitor in the B3 who was the lifelong friend of a former Egyptian Islamic Jihad member, a schoolmate, recruited by Ayman Zawahiri.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that Dr. Bruce Ivins hosted one Egyptian visitor in the B3 who was the lifelong friend of a former Egyptian Islamic Jihad member, a schoolmate, recruited by Ayman Zawahiri and that the FBI not obtain the relevant documents until February 2005.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that this document seized in Afghanistan pointed to infiltration of US biodefense. To what was the author referring?

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses this Zawahiri correspondence with infiltrating scientist that was part of parallel compartmentalized cell operation. Who else did Ayman attempt to recruit (besides the schoolmate and close friend of Bruce Ivins’ co-worker)?

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the documents dating from April 1999 showing that Ayman Zawahiri’s plan was to recruit a specialist. Who else did Ayman Zawahiri succeed in recruiting?

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that the lifelong friends of Dr. Tarek Hamouda, supplied virulent Ames by Bruce Ivins, actively denounce their former medical school associate Ayman Zawahiri as a fanatic – one serving as President of CAIR-St. Louis and the other as author of INSIDE JIHAD. After the FBI first obtained in 2005 the documents relating to Dr. Hamouda’s work with Dr. Ivins, did they contact Dr. Hamid who reports he was recruited into the Egyptian Islamic Group by Ayman Zawahiri while in medical school? Did they contact his brother who publicly announced that he could not identify a sleeper cell if he did not know about it?

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses why the FBI failed to disclose that Jdey was detained and released as the same time as Moussaoui.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that Ayman Zawahiri had an extensive recruiting network for his anthrax planning and the announcement of his plans in March 1999, including the blind sheik’s son who spoke alongside Ali Al-Timimi and was on Al Qaeda’s 3-member WMD society. Did the blind sheik’s son recruit Ali Al-Timimi?

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that Ayman Zawahiri used “school” to refer to the Egyptian Islamic Jihad.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the documentary evidence showing that Ayman Zawahiri used “school” as code and not Bruce Ivins.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that while the US government focuses on Anwar Al-Aulaqi, the media continues to overlook Aulaqi’s connection to fellow Falls Church imam, a scientist sharing the suite with the leading bioweapons Ames anthrax researchers with whom defense counsel says Aulaqi was coordinating.

    David Willman in Mirage Man nowhere addresses the fact that Ali Al-Timimi had unfettered access to the largest microbiological repository in the world where the bacteriology collection scientist was the future head of the Amerithrax science investigation who would guide the NAS review and the production of documents from the FBI to NAS.

    Given the questions not addressed, isn’t there a very real chance that an Ivins Theory is just a Hatfill Theory redux — and had the same effect of narrowing the investigative focus? I mean, did Agent Lawrence Alexander – with 6 years on the safe streets task force — who was an important architect of an Ivins Theory — have any counterintelligence or intelligence analysis background whatsoever?

    Well, this just dovetails with the view that some of us have long held: Ivins’ deterioration had to do with the hounding of him by the investigators, not to any “consciousness of guilt” which would have kicked in in late 2001,.

    I think it’s Mrs Ivins who has the basis for a wrongful death suit again the investigating entities. And perhaps that will be the last litigation surrounding the Amerithrax Case.
