    “Our hopes for a unique genetic response in the attack Ames now rested solely with the work Pat Worsham continued on our behalf.” (Scott Decker, Recounting the Anthrax Attacks p. 118, 2017)

    Now given that Pat Worsham thinks that Bruce Ivins is innocent — and she has both scientific grounds and personal observations — I wonder if the former agent Decker realizes that any trial he imagines would have occurred would have had the equivalent of Abby’s NCIS testifying against the prosecutor’s conclusion. For example, one night that Decker imagines Ivins had no reason to be in the lab was a night when emails eventually produced showed that he had been directed by Worsham to clean up the lab. She even knew about unauthorized access to the suite where the Ames was stored.

    DOJ Civil today produced Jeffrey Adamovicz’s civil deposition. In addition, there were some exhibits I had specified.

    One is an email Gerry Andrews about the unauthorized entry by someone on June 15, 2001. Dr. Andrews states of the signage:

    “This should have been an obvious warning to him that he needed to check with somebody in Bact. Div. PRIOR to entry into the animal room, which he did not do.”

    Since evidently a certain someone doesn’t quite get the significance of this, I’ll draw it out:
    The Amerithrax Investigative Summary states as part of the case against Ivins:

    Others with access to RMR-1029 have been ruled out
    But ‘others with access to RMR-1029’ refers only those with authorized/ documented access. Those whose access was unauthorized/undocumented (ie let in by someone else for reasons innocent or nefarious etc.) wouldn’t be on anyone’s list. And if you weren’t on the list, you couldn’t be ‘ruled out’.

    Plus, as noted by yours truly more than once, this doesn’t work unless you assume that Amerithrax was a one-person operation. The ‘alibis’ don’t work eliminatively if the alibi-ist has an accomplice ready , willing, and able to drive to Princeton………
