    If GAO’s computer forensics experts are given access to the raw material of Dr. Ivins’ computer, they can recreate what he was doing for the time he spent on computers.

    For example, on September 25, 2001, I believe he was working on a file titled “Rhesus60log.B90-06” He was making notes about a 1990 experiment he had done (based on a notebook he was reviewing).

    http://mrmc.amedd.army.mil/content/foia_reading_room/Lab%20Notebooks/Notes%20and%20Sample%20Anaylsis%20from%20Notebook%203268.pdf

    Then, when faced with US Attorney Taylor’s claim he had no reason to be in the lab, the GAO can understand that the claim is contradicted not only by the records relating to the experiment involving killing the 52 rabbits, but is contradicted by the computer forensics.

    That science relating to computer forensics would far, far more probative than the multimillion dollar effort relating to genetics that only served to cut the field from 700-1000 to 200-300 with access to Building 1412 and Building 1425 (just counting USAMRIID).

    In the ricin case, if the FBI had narrowed the field to a few hundred people — and then the Elvis impersonator had committed suicide from the stress — the prosecutors and investigators might well have closed the invetigation a couple years later rather than have their conclusions scrutinized.

    The Memphis ricin case did not involve a serious threat. The Al Qaeda anthrax threat is real and unresolved.

    Notice how there was no evidence provided of the times that Dr. Ivins was known to have been surfing on his home or work computer.

    What did Dr. Ivins’ browser history show?

    What sites was he looking at one what particular times?

    What does the search history show?

    GAO should interview the person who did the computer forensics on his computer records from 2001 — why did we hear only on that subject from Summer 2008?
