* DXer: DOJ has failed to comply with FOIA in connection with Amerithrax … LMW: the key question is WHY ???

Mueller & Holder ... these are the people relentlessly leading the struggle to keep the truth from the American people ... WHY?

DXer (in a prior comment) says …

DOJ has failed to comply with FOIA in connection with Amerithrax.

As soon as the inventory of documents produced by USAMRIID to FBI is produced next week, media requestors should seek those documents simultaneously from USAMRIID and DOJ and FBI.

For some of the key documents (e.g., lab notebooks from September/October 2001), copies were not made and FBI took the only copy.

It is important that researchers put aside their preconceptions and work to reconstruct a timeline, based on documentary evidence, of what Dr. Ivins did in September and October. For example, if there is a record of what time he viewed a document sitting at a computer on a key date, that is the sort of thing that could be hugely relevant.

For example, the DOJ has failed to produce the September 17, 2001 email from Bruce Ivins to Mara Linscott so that the public can see what time it was sent (that would show that at the particular time in question he was at the computer from which it was sent and not Princeton).

Similarly, the DOJ is withholding the family 302s (compare the UNABOM case in which they were produced). Those 302s also serve to alibi Dr. Ivins for the night of September 17.

As another example, the DOJ is withholding its server archive that it obtained from USAMRIID that contains extensive documents not yet produced.

LMW COMMENT …

Reporters should jump all over this issue. First, to get the documents. Then to find out why they have been so relentlessly withheld.

It is this purposely misleading behavior by FBI Director Mueller and Attorney General Holder and their subordinates which infuriates me. That fury caused me to write my novel CASE CLOSED, which posits an alternative (fictional) scenario for what really happened in the anthrax attack and in the pathetic FBI investigation which followed.
