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

* Congressman Rush Holt has raised questions about the FBI investigation of the anthrax attacks for years … He has asked the GAO to investigate … but no answers are forthcoming … is the GAO now part of the coverup?

For years, Congressman Rush Holt has raised questions about the FBI investigation of the anthrax attacks. He has called for Congressional reviews. He has asked the GAO to investigate.

But nothing has happened. No reports have issued. 

The FBI’s Ivins case has been thoroughly demolished on this blog and elsewhere.

DXer’s recent comment (3/2/14): I’m going to be bummed if a GAO report issues without all this great stuff and powerful testimony uploaded. We’ve seen Adamovicz, Little, Andrews, Worsham, Byrne and others demolish the FBI’s “Ivins Theory.”

Does anyone still care about what seems to be an enormous coverup of the truth regarding the 2001 anthrax attacks?

The only thing we know with almost total certainty is that it wasn’t Dr. Bruce Ivins.

Here are links to just a few of the many posts on this blog regarding Congressman Holt’s lonely efforts to get the truth …

* Congressman Holt’s letter to FBI Director Mueller: ” … it now appears that the FBI—which has consistently botched and bungled this case from the beginning—may be seeking to try to steer or otherwise pressure the NAS panel to reach a conclusion desired by the Bureau. I ask that you meet with me this week to explain the FBI’s troubling conduct in this matter …”

* the GAO review of the FBI’s anthrax investigation has begun … a report is expected to be issued by September 30, 2011 … *** UPDATE: a series of fascinating comments to this post suggest many pertinent questions that GAO might want to consider .

* Congressman Rush Holt: The FBI repeatedly bungled the anthrax investigation … I have introduced legislation that would create a special committee to investigate the anthrax attacks

* long-delayed GAO report, evaluating the FBI’s investigation of the 2001 anthrax attacks, expected in September 2013, may be issued “some time next year”

    Please stop annoying or being unfair to GAO. (And don’t get mad at me when I defend GAO because that really pisses me off).

    Instead, continue your great efforts in helping to obtain documentary evidence or information that is useful to GAO.

    A confession from Yazid Sufaat he was using Ames strain of anthrax would be nice.

    Or the uploading of the USAMRIID civil depositions (that are not subject to a protective order or FOIA exemption) to the USAMRIID Electronic Reading Room would be nice.

    GAO within its procedural rules has the authority to upload interview of the investigators, prosecutors and scientists. GAO thus could play an invaluable role in getting everyone on the same page.

    But people tend to align their beliefs based on whether they like you — under psych 101 cognitive dissonance theory.

    And so it is important to always presume another person’s good faith — absent any information to the contrary.

    It is terribly difficult for GAO to proceed with the upcoming trials of KSM, Al-Hawsawi, Bin al-shibh, Sufaat, etc because they don’t know what will come out about Al Qaeda’s anthrax program — and because FBI has long withheld documents from them. (They don’t kick ass and take names like you do).

    GAO should focus on the test results that the FBI never even shared with the NAS — from 2002 and 2003. Al Qaeda was using virulent Ames and Yazid Sufaat doesn’t deny it.
