    Oh, and in considering the context of Ivins’ September 26, 2001 email mentioned on the fictionalized National Geographic tv show, let’s not overlooked the email that the FBI never produced but I obtained after persisting in requests to other sources. This September 26, 2001 explains why he was working late — and that was one of the three reasons the profiler focused suspicion on him.

    She apparently overlooked the email and sought only evidence that supported her theory. It’s a cognitive bias that creeps in when analysts and investigators are siloed.

    Rachel Lieber argues that Dr. Ivins’ time in the lab in late September 2001 was unexplained. In particular, she references his return to the lab on September — which although she does not tell you is when 52 rabbits arrived from Covance. She had not produced the email showing what the documents show he was doing. He was cleaning up the lab as directed by Pat Worsham.

    On Wednesday ( September 26, 2001) at 10 PM he explained in the email withheld by DOJ that on Tuesday evening (September 25, 2001) he had removed the ceiling lights to clean them.

    Now compare the Amerithrax Investigative Summary and you’ll see that is when she argues he was making a dried powdered anthrax.

    To the contrary, they were cleaning up the lab in preparation for the arrival of the 52 rabbits which were to be challenged subcutaneously.
