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

* The FBI has failed to produce the emails from Bruce Ivins to Mara Linscott (e.g., dated 9/15/2001 and 9/26/2001) that have times that would confirm her statement that he would go to the B3 to use the internet; she would know – he was emailing her.

    As Dr. Andrews has explained, and as indicated by the record evidence, Dr. Ivins viewed his office and hot suite as a “safe place”. He would go to the suite to take showers.

    Dr. Andrews’ civil deposition is the fullest, most reliable description of his account.

      Forensics on the email sent Mara Linscott on 9/26/2001 would have shown the computer from which it was sent.

      A laptop with internet service (that went missing) was first installed in the B3 earlier that summer.

    The Plaintiff has agreed, formally, to shred Mara’s and Pat’s depositions. Thus, the suppression of information resulting from AUSA Rachel Lieber’s withholding of the lab notebooks and related documents is complete.

    The USG, for its part, agrees to destroy documents also. The attorneys of record assume responsibility for the destruction of those records.

    On the separate issue of the psychiatric file, the government already spun that file and there was a press conference. As his central witness,Dr. Saathoff and Dr. Schouten relied on the first counselor, Judith McLean, who has written a 2009 book explaining that she got her instructions during the period from an alien who implanted a device in her butt. The counselor explained that nasty astral entities would chase her each night and she would need emergency exorcisms to get rid of the nasty spirit that attached themselves from her clients. By destroying the records, you will not see how she annotated the notes of the psychiatrists. The USG based its opinion on her notes and by destroying the original records, you will never see that in the source material. Instead, you’ll just hear the version that Dr. Saathoff was marketing in interviews and press conferences — and yet he is the one who, along with AUSA Lieber, doesn’t want you to think that Dr. Ivins was driven to suicide by the aggressive investigative tactics used against him. The private psychiatrists who consulted for the government have been selling their lengthy report — and yet they did not spend $10 of the $38,000 in expenses in taxpayer funds to buy a copy of the counselor’s book before their press conference last year. GAO: How can it square for the psychiatrists to be selling for profit (a hefty one at that) when the report was funded by taxpayer money?

    If and when Dr. Ayman launches a mass anthrax attack against targets in New York City and District of Columbia, the Congressional Staff members not taking action may kick themselves, asking: “Damn, I wish we questioned the justification for sealing those depositions under F.R.Civ.P. 26(c).”

    But so long as you don’t have loved ones in DC and New York, it doesn’t matter as much. So go ahead, power up those shredders.
