    I have a pending June 9, 2011 pending FOIA request in to USAMRIID for all documents from September -October 2001, including hard copy. The most fruitful way of reconstructing the timeline is from documents created on Dr. Ivins’ hard drive. Emails, such as this email from when the DOJ speculates, without basis, he was mailing the letters, are just one way of creating a timeline. Even a date-ordered list of documents from Ms. Friend’s computer would be illuminating as to what Dr. Ivins was doing. Time has not been well-spent in bearing down in recreating the timeline for September 2001- October 2001. Other endeavors, over the range of issues, pale in importance.

    Hi, again,
    I just heard some more news this morning concerning anthrax in Florida. If B. anthracis was found
    in a building or on/in other individuals in a building, is it possible that someone brought into work an
    article of clothing (sweater, vest, suit, socks, etc.) made out of infected sheep wool or alpaca/llama
    hair? This might have special likelihood if someone had bought or received as a gift some imported
    article(s) of clothing. One of the women that works in my lab said she heard on the radio that the
    individual who contracted anthrax had been around sheep recently. If this is true, then this could also
    be a possibility. Finally, what about the possibility that someone inadvertently brought back some B.
    anthracis recently while out of the country?
    We’re quite busy here still with our work both on AVA as well as on a possible new vaccine.
    Have a good fall!
    – Bruce
