* Ivins/Amerithrax-Notebook 4282 FOIA follow-up by DXer

Re Ivins/Amerithrax-Notebook 4282

Sandra and Joseph,

Did Medcom inquire of DOJ about Notebook 4282?  If Medcom inquired of DOJ, did Medcom get a reply?

The notebook has an entry on the date of the first mailing of anthrax in 2001 that murdered 5 people.  I am informed and believe that it also has entries on 9/14/2001 and 9/15/2001, the date that the FBI theorized Ivins prepared the anthrax.

The FBI claims Ivins had no legitimate reason to be in the lab.  In contrast, I think the notebook will evidence a virulence study that shows Ivins was responsible for the nighttime and weekend animal checks.  (According to lab tech Mara Linscott, such checks were a one-person job and took a couple hours, such as what was observed).

I have suggested instead that an Al Qaeda operative Adnan El-Shukrijumah from Florida was responsible — was the mailer.  He was an associate of Mohamed Atta who met with Atta in a Sarasota residence.  Adnan told his mother on or about September 11, 2001 that he was coming back into the country.  Adnan was staying with Al Qaeda’s #3 KSM.  KSM was getting briefed by Al Qaeda’s lab director Yazid Sufaat, who I have interviewed.  Sufaat does not deny responsibility for the anthrax mailings and instead pled the Fifth.

The Army and FBI has not treated the issue with the expedition warranted under the FOIPA statute.

Sometimes, as in the case of the Florida Pulse shooter, the FBI closes a case upon lack of evidence when actually the problem is that the evidence was available but not efficiently obtained.

* As we wait while USAMRIID obtains 9,000+ pages relating to Ivins/ Laboratory Material from DOJ, the category of “Email Attachments” at USAMRIID’s FOIA website will be one likely to have documents added. History will owe USAMRIID FOIA personnel a profound thanks for helping the public get on the same page.
