CASE CLOSED … what really happened in the 2001 anthrax attacks?

* Dr. Ivins preferred a parenteral (subcutaneous) challenge because you could fit 60 rabbits in one room whereas an aerosol challenge would require 4 rooms (1 for animals, 2 hood lines, and 1 spore and bacterial plating)

    AUSA Lieber’s use of statistics was highly misleading.

    First, she did not understand that the two person rule implemented in beginning of 2002 prevented the long hours in Sept, Oct, Nov and December 2001 continuing.

    Second, she did not understand that the statistics done only for 1425 would not capture the fact that similar long hours had been experienced in 1412 in aerosol experiments — but Dr. Ivins came to prefer to do subcutaneous challenges in 1425 because it involved fewer personnel.
