* GAO expects to issue its report on the FBI anthrax investigation in the “later part of the summer or early fall”
Posted by Lew Weinstein on August 18, 2014
When does summer end? Most people would say in another two weeks or so. When will GAO issue its report? … Summer has already become “maybe early fall.” … Will that soon become “late fall or winter?” … Which will eventually become “never?” I would love to be surprised.
By the way, my view has not changed. The FBI’s case against Dr. Ivins is clearly bogus: no evidence, no witnesses, an impossible timeline. The real questions are why the FBI persists in sticking to such a pathetic story and why it is taking GAO so long to issue its report?
DXer’s recent comment deserves more prominent placement … “The most pertinent science offered up so far tends to be exculpatory of Dr. Bruce Ivins and directly contradicts the prosecutor’s meme of Flask 1029 as the ‘murder weapon.’ But, hey, why let peer-reviewed science interfere with a prejudicial slogan in spinning the dead suspect’s guilt?”
some time before the summer …
