* Was Flask 1030 (Notebook 3655) the source of the Fall 2001 anthrax mailings rather than Flask 1029 (Notebook 4010)?

* In response to Dillon’s FOIA request for information relating to Ivins’ activities in Sep.-Oct. 2001, the FBI falsely claimed that it had uploaded the information (such as Notebook 4282) to the FBI’s “Vault”

The FBI has never had a credible case against Ivins, and it seems they are using every means they can to keep the truth hidden.

* In a secret report, Battelle determined that the sample provided by the FBI in October 2001 resembled the subtilis var. niger (“Bg”) surrogate made by Dugway

* Did the Battelle High Energy Temperature Incendiary Project involve Dugway-Made Anthrax From Ivins Flask 1030, Acetone Drying, And Subtilis Contamination?

* DXer has sent his tip to “Information Resources Center Hotline” set up as part of DOD Laboratory Review

Posted by DXer on October 10, 2015

Information Resources  Center Hotline/

Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear Information Resource Center

Dear Sir or Madam:

The DOD Laboratory Review website  [ http://www.defense.gov/News/Special-Reports/DoD-Laboratory-Review  ] states:“In support of the coordination and rapid response to the DoD’s comprehensive review of this matter, a 24-hour a day, seven days a week hotline has been established. Public inquiries and questions regarding the DoD’s review of laboratory procedures can be directed to the Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear Information Resource Center.”

I am writing to set forth my concerns about the irradiation of 340 ml. of virulent, Dugway-made b. anthracis Ames that has been overlooked in the DOD Laboratory Review.  The irradiation was scheduled to be done at USAMRIID.

Dugway shipped of 160 ml. b. anthracis Ames and 180 ml. b. anthracis Ames for irradiation on June 27, 2001.  (The total was 340 ml.)

Documentary source:
 Dugway shipped 175 ml Ames spores for irradiation on August 30, 2000 and 340 ml Ames spores for irradiation on Jun 27, 2001

Based on a 2004 FBI report,  I believe that irradiation was unsuccessful.  Documentary source:
* In 2004, the FBI was told that Ivins handled irradiation of Dugway spores, which then were kept in the cold room near the loading dock even though irradiation was not always successful

The “Dugway Ames” (from Flask 1029) was alleged by the DOJ to be the origin of the “murder weapon” in the Fall 2001 anthrax mailings that killed five people.

Was the 340 ml. of Ames anthrax sent on June 27, 2001 from Dugway to USAMRIID for irradiation the anthrax that reportedly went missing?  Posted by Lew Weinstein on October 6, 2015

Was the 340 ml. of genetically matching virulent Ames shipped from Dugway to USAMRIID in June 2001 tested for the genetically distinctive subtilis contaminant — Or did it go missing?

 Ivins calculated that it would take 300 ml of Dugway spores to make the mailed anthrax – he said that amount of spores would be noticed if it went missing.

Specifically, I am concerned that Dr. Christian Hassell and Dr. Vahid Majidi, who guided the FBI Amerithrax investigation, have now guided the DOD review and that analysis did not extend to the pre-911 shipment of the 340 ml. of Ames to USAMRIID that I suggest was genetically matching the anthrax used to murder five people and terrorize a nation.  (Flask 1030 had 3 morphs and then went through additional passaging at Dugway).An attorney, I am concerned that the Army and FBI have wrongfully failed to produce Notebook 3655 pursuant to my FOIA requests.  I expect to bring litigation over the wrongful withholding.  Both the DOD (to include JAG) and the FBI, I submit, are playing “hide-the-ball.”I ask that the shipment be addressed by the DOD.  If there is to be transparency and accountability, Bruce Ivins’ Notebook 3655 (relating to Ivins’ Flask 1030) and Notebook 4010 (relating to Ivins’ Flask 1029) should be uploaded to the excellent USMRMC Electronic Website along with the numerous other Bruce Ivins’ notebooks.

If they are not produced, i expect it to be shown that DOD — acting through former Amerithrax officials Dr. Christian Hassell and Dr. Vahid Majidi — will have turned the claim of transparency and accountability into a mere public relations slogan.

Documentary source:
Who told Ivins on December 17, 2006 not to tell anyone about missing samples — that the FBI situation was under control — and that “justification” for missing samples could be provided if necessary?

Christian Hassell never provided NAS the Notebook 3655, which related to Flask 1030 — the seed stock sent to Dugway to make both Flask 1029 and the 340 ml. Ames then sent to USAMRIID in June 2001
