    Ms. Fried says she would make Ames in B2 and then the researchers would bring it into B3. (In its liquid form, it was B2 pathogen before 911.)

    Kurt Eichenwald in 500 Days says his book is based on 600 hours of interviews — and none of the participants will be named.

    His sourcing for each couple of pages is to several documents which often do not in fact support the proposition.

    In the case of Amerithrax/Ivins, most often he is just citing the prosecutor’s sharply disputed assertions.

    See, for example, his treatment of the issue of submission of samples at page 232-33.

    It is not a balanced treatment of Fall 2001 anthrax mailings and is not based on the relevant documentary evidence. It is merely a summary of the prosecutor’s assertions — but of course if he interviewed them, you won’t know that. Mr. Willman’s book, in contrast, was admirable as to the copious and precise footnoting of authority. He might merely be relying on an investigator’s say-so but at least he named the person.

    It was his assistant, the aerosol expert, who judging from this inventory log, made the sample that showed the silicon signature from aerosol leftovers.
