* DXer once again demolishes the FBI’s investigative conclusions … there is no case against Ivins … why is the GAO report not finished?

I did not post in this thread until after I had corresponded with Dr. Vahid Majidi. He confirmed in writing that his speculation about what Dr. Ivins was doing in the lab was based on his (mistaken) supposition that the experiment with the 52 rabbits was done “at some other facility.”
The proof that Amerithrax was screwed up is established by two simple factually verifiable issues.
First, Vahid Majidi did not understand that the two person rule was not implemented at USAMRIID until January 2002. Thus his analysis in closing the Amerithrax investigation was inexcusable crock. He relied on his experience at Los Alamos rather than bothering to inform himself about the timing of a 2-person rule at USAMRIID, which was first implemented in January 2002.
Second, if as a reporter you were to ask him, you will find that Dr. Majidi cannot provide or cite any document indicating that the 52 rabbits experiment was done any place other than in Bruce Ivins’ B3 suite. There are thousands of pages uploaded and yet he cannot cite a single contemporaneous document in support.
Those two things alone demolish the FBI’s Amerithrax theory. There was no reason to convene the NAS review or even GAO review. All that was needed was for AUSA Lieber or FBI Official Majidi to be pressed for the documents on the 52 rabbits. Reporters haven’t done that and it is time that they do.
AUSA Lieber told me — in a written email — that I would never be getting any documents under FOIA on the subject.
Amerithrax represents the greatest failure in counterintelligence analysis in the history of the United States.
Failure is not an option.
