Posted by DXer on March 2, 2014


Dr. Ivins’ assistant, Kristie Friend, worked for Dr. Ivins’ beginning in June 1999.  She worked along with Terry Abshire in Dr. Ezzell’s lab in testing and collecting samples in connection with the Fall 2001 anthrax letters.   Her full civil deposition is downloadable at this URL.  It was provided yesterday by DOJ Civil FOIA.

    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.”

    I’ve next asked for the civil depositions of Dr. Susan Welkos and Dr. Arthur Friedlander, both highly skilled scientists experienced with anthrax.

    For a preview:

    I am hoping someone will ask for the DARPA one by Mr. Lynn. (DOJ this time sent me Kristie Friend’s depo on a CD when I expressed a preference for an electronic copy; this avoided my occasional misadventures with my scanner’s feeder tray.)

    If you want to see the remaining depositions sooner rather than later, you could could ask for both the former DARPA-head Lynn (I don’t have his first name handy) and Alnora Robinson and Robert J. Hawley.

    You simply email a plain english request for a copy of the named deposition in Maureen Stevens v. United States.

    You put FOIA Request on your subject line.

    I believe Alnora testified on security checks re foreign nationals visiting the lab and working in the B3 and Robert J. Hawley testified as an expert on the distribution of Ames.

    Sending the request to the Attn. Attorney-in-Charge James Kovakas may help expedite things given he likely has the files in his office or on his computer and knows the pattern of requests.

    Typically, only a home address will be redacted.

      For a preview of Dr. Friedlander’s deposition, yet to be uploaded:

      Dr. Friedlander at page 42 of his civil deposition to be uploaded summarizes:

      “I don’t know who sent the letters.”
