    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department and FBI formally acknowledged Saturday that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants.

    The testimonies occurred over more than a two-decade period before 2000.

    Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair-comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Innocence Project.

    In connection with Amerithrax, I think there are many traditional forensic tests that are not exempt from production and would be produced.

    I suggested to Dr. Majidi that it would be in the FBI’s interest to make a supplemental FOIA production on such things as the

    ink,
    paper composition,
    photocopy toner,
    fiber,
    handwriting, (limited to Ivins, and the late Atta and Shukrijumah)
    CIA finding of Ames in Kandahar that the FBI didn’t credit,
    bloodhound alert (negative as to Ivins),
    Ivins’ polygraphs,
    meglumine and diazotroate etc.

    But he didn’t respond.

    Even as to handwriting, people like Atta and Shukrijumah are dead and the case is closed. So a privacy exemption and law enforcement exemption should not apply.
