CASE CLOSED … what really happened in the 2001 anthrax attacks?

Posts Tagged ‘FOIA by USAMRIID’

* What is our government hiding? Who is doing the hiding? Why? These are crucial questions affecting our national security, not only with respect to the 2001 anthrax attacks, but also today.

DXer commented on * Dugway anthrax – Will it take Congressional subpoena power to fill in the blanks in the email asking about weaponized anthrax that came to Detrick via FedEx and then was shipped out and some was missing?

After producing the email attachments that have already been collected but have not yet been uploaded (to include documents such as Amerithrax Inventory 1-13), will USAMRMC be producing the documents relating to shipments of anthrax spores between USAMRIID and Dugway?

Consider the first quarter of 2003, for example. I am advised that spores from Dugway to USAMRIID were shipped on 15 JAN 03. Then spores were shipped from USAMRIID to Dugway on 4 MAR 03. And then spores were shipped from Dugway to USAMRIID on 11 MAR 03.

Is USAMRIID going to only produce the documents relating to shipments after 9/11? Did someone at USAMRIID or USMRMC destroy the documents of such shipments predating the murder of the five people, including the elderly Ottilie Lundgren? Or do the documents still exist and USMRMC/CDC/Army still insist on concealing them — all the while the Secretary of the Army is flying the banner of transparency and accountability.

Obama Admin Censoring on the Rise

Though the Obama administration has promised since its first day in power to increase government transparency, it has failed to do so, according to a new analysis by the Associated Press. It reveals that last year, the Obama administration censored more government files and outright denied access to them under the Freedom of Information Act more often than ever. Last year, the government denied access on national-security grounds 8,496 times, a 57 percent increase from the previous year and more than double Obama’s first year in office. Last year the government censored or denied access to documents in 244,675 cases, or 36 percent of all requests.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) said, “I’m concerned the growing trend toward relying upon FOIA exemptions to withhold large swaths of government information is hindering the public’s right to know. If you screw up in government, just mark it top secret.”

* Although the corrections to the Stephen Little transcript are not actually work-product or attorney-client — they are corrections to the transcript (in the nature of addendum) — USAMRIID is free to redact the changes made that it doesn’t want anyone to see
