* FBI stonewalling seems to be working

Posted by DXer on June 4, 2009


Here’s an update on my efforts to learn whether Congress has succeeded in extracting answers to its questions regarding the FBI  investigation of the 2001 anthrax attacks …


Senator Grassley … I have been calling and emailing to this office for almost a month now, without receiving the courtesy of a return call. I have been told that Brian Downey (at the Senate Finance Committee) is the person to talk to, and yesterday I left yet another message for him. I don’t know why the Finance Committee has oversight responsibility in this matter, but that’s what I’ve been told.

Congressman Conyers … This was the best response I got. I was referred to a specific person at the House Judiciary Committee, and I left a message for a Renata Strauss.

Congressman Nadler … I spoke to Max who took my questions and said he would try to find someone who could answer, but even he seemed doubtful.

Congressman Holt … I was referred to a Patrick Eddington and left a voice message for him. I am specifically looking for information about the progress of the Anthrax Attacks Investigation Act of 2009, legislation introduced in March 2009 by Congressman Holt and others that would establish a Congressional commission to investigate the 2001 anthrax attacks and the federal government’s response and investigation of the attacks. 

It seems to me that the questions I’m asking are rather easy to answer …

  • Did the FBI answer specific questions put forward by the legislators?  … yes or no
  • If so, can you share their answers? … yes or no
  • If not, what are you doing about this apparent refusal of a Federal agency to respond to Congressional oversight? ... something or nothing

It may be too soon to draw conclusions, and I will continue making a pest of myself in these various Congressional offices, but so far would it not be fair to say that the FBI stonewalling seems to be working? FBI Director Meuller just seems to ignore questions, and he seems to be getting away with it.

I’ll try again tomorrow. Any suggestions?
