The GAO report has confirmed what the NAS said two years ago, which is that the FBI’s allegation that Dr. Bruce Ivins was the sole perpetrator of the 2001 anthrax attacks – or even involved in any way – is not supported by the scientific evidence the FBI has presented.
Unfortunately, the GAO report did not address all of the many open questions regarding other alleged evidence which this blog and others have raised, and thus has left unanswered the reasons for the FBI’s inexplicable insistence on Ivins as the perpetrator when they have not presented even a semblance of a credible case.
What is the FBI covering up? Why?
These are not trivial questions. The answers are important to our national security and to our confidence in the FBI.
I think there are three possible explanations …
- The FBI has more evidence against Ivins which it has not made public.
- The FBI has not solved the case and doesn’t know who the attackers were.
- The FBI knows who committed the attacks but doesn’t want us to know.
Of these, it seems to me the third explanation is by far the most likely and the most terrifying.
Beyond that, with the GAO report issued, it seems that no one else really cares about the multitude of questions raised on this blog, which means we will never know the truth.
My novel CASE CLOSED was written several years ago as a fictional account exploring the FBI’s pathetic case and the reasons they might have had for presenting it. It was never presented as fact, but as time has gone by, it seems to me to be much closer to what the truth might be than anything the FBI has ever presented.
