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

Posts Tagged ‘Tarek Hamouda’

* DXer … documents that must be produced … questions that must be asked … meanwhile, on the CASE CLOSED blog, 178,000 clicks and 12,000 comments have produced not a single shred of credible evidence that Dr. Bruce Ivins made the attack anthrax or mailed the letters

not a single shred of credible evidence


extracts from a recent DXer comment …

  • Bruce Ivins supplied a Cairo Medical graduate, whose friends were personally recruited by Dr. Ayman, virulent Ames.
    • Dr. Ivins was directed to do so even though the researcher was not a US citizen.  Bruce did not know the researcher was a non-citizen until after the visiting scientist arrived at USAMRIID  for the visit in Spring 1998.   See generally  INSIDE JIHAD, by “Tawfiq” Hamid about Dr. Ayman’s recruitment at Cairo Medical.
    • Dr.  Tarek Hamouda was funded by DARPA.
    • The researchers who shared a suite with Ali Al-Timimi also were funded by DARPA.
    • Those researchers co-invented the microencapsulation patent used to concentrate anthrax with silicon dioxide.
    • Ali Al-Timimi was coordinating with fellow Falls Church imam, Anwar Awlaki.
  • The FBI’s anthrax expert, John Ezzell, spoke at DARPA about his dried aerosol project at USAMRIID.  Over the course of 5 years of trial and error, according to author DW, he experimented with making a dried powder.

The FBI never disclosed this — not to the public

and apparently not to the NAS.

  • We all just want the right answer.  That requires a Congressional Commission or a reopened Amerithrax investigation.
  • Agent Lawerence Alexander was not provided  the 16 pages of the research by the former Zawahiri associate
    alongside Bruce Ivins and Patricia Fellows in the B3  until well after he had started googling about sororities and developed the early forms of his “Ivins Theory.”
    • His theory, though speculative and complex, can be presumed to be in good faith.  But at the end of the day he needs to factor in what he now knows about the reliability of the first counselor as a witness.

Agent Lawrence Alexander and Postal Inspector Dellefera

have to themselves urge the Director that Amerithrax be reopened.

  • The small company of the former Zawahiri associate received millions from the venture fund headed by the man who then was put in charge of Pakistan and Afghanistan (the powerful #3 at Department of State).
  • That combined with the fact that Ali Al-Timimi had once been the assistant by the former White Chief of Staff (in another life at the Department of Transportation) may have made the correct solution of Amerithrax politically awkward.
  • Our United States Department of Justice closed its case based on someone who was having visions, hearing voices  and a series of mistaken claims and premises outlined at an August 8, 2008 conference.
  • our major media has not yet interviewed Tarek Hamouda, the former Zawahiri associate, to ask how well he knew Dr. Ayman Zawahiri and his sister, the microbiology professor.
  • No one has interviewed the subtilis expert who lived 20 miles from the Princeton mailbox who was in regular phone contact with the WTC 1993 plotters to ask how well he knew Ramzi Yousef, KSM’s nephew.
  • Dr. Hamouda, the former Zawahiri associate, thanked Patricia Fellows for providing technical assistance.
    • She is the one who spun Dr. Ivins as having no reason to be in the lab in early October.  See her 302.
    • For 2 1/2 years, the DOJ did not mention that Dr. Ivins was helping with the animal studies on not only the 5 nights in September that the DOJ was speculating that he was making a dried powder.
    • And even to this day they never have disclosed that the same animal work continued in October.

This withholding of documents is outrageous.

  • It is critical that the GAO probe who is responsible for the withholding of documents and force the disclosure of all documents relating to Amerithrax not exempt from FOIA.



  • This CASE CLOSED blog has now received almost 178,000 clicks and just short of 12,000 comments.
  • It is an open blog. Anyone can contribute.
  • And yet, to the best of my recollection …

not a single person has presented

a single bit of documentation

in support of the FBI’s assertion that Dr. Ivins

made the attack anthrax and mailed the letters.

  • If you’re out there, and you have evidence that supports the FBI’s case, let’s see it.
  • Meanwhile, the mountain of grudgingly released documents continues to demolish the FBI’s assertions.

* from DXer … the lifelong friends of Dr. Tarek Hamouda, supplied virulent Ames by Bruce Ivins, actively denounce their former medical school associate Ayman Zawahiri as a fanatic – one serving as President of CAIR-St. Louis and the other as author of INSIDE JIHAD.

The FBI’s case against Dr. Ivins is bogus: no evidence, no witnesses, an impossible timeline, science that proves innocence instead of guilt. So what really happened? And why? The “fictional” scenario in my novel CASE CLOSED has been judged by many readers, including a highly respected official in the U.S. Intelligence Community, as “quite plausible.”

* from DXer … documents related to interactions between Dr. Bruce Ivins and University of Michigan researchers

Posted by DXer on March 1, 2010


The New York Times says the FBI’s anthrax case has “too many loose ends.” Find out where some of those looses ends might have originated in my novel CASE CLOSED. Sure it’s fiction, but many readers, including a highly respected member of the U.S. Intelligence Community, think my premise is actually “quite plausible.”

from DXer …

documents related to interactions

between Dr. Bruce Ivins

and University of Michigan researchers


… see documents below …

from DXer …

  • Records recently provided by the US DOJ suggest that Dr. Ivins did not know that one of the two researchers coming was not a US-citizen.
    • Tarek Hamouda, the head of a DARPA project, was from Cairo, Egypt and had a green card.
    • Permission was granted after his arrival to work with Bruce Ivins in the B3 laboratory.
  • The researcher, Tarek Hamouda, and his co-inventor,  James Baker, were working on a decontamination agent that later was tested at the US Capitol clean-up and pitched to postal workers as a hand cream.
    • Lab tech Michael Hayes accompanied Dr. Hamouda to do the work with Dr. Ivins in May 1998.
    • The Ann Arbor researchers thanked Bruce Ivins for supplying them the Ames and also thanked Patricia Fellows, Mara Linscott, and Arthur Friedlander for technical assistance.
  • DXer has reported that a lifelong childhood of Dr. Hamouda, “Tawfiq” Hamid, has published on his experience of being recruited into the Egyptian Islamic Jihad by Ayman Zawahiri in a room set aside for that purpose at the Cairo Medical School.
    • Dr. Hamid consults with the Intelligence Community.
    • The recruitment occurred while he and Dr. Hamouda were both attending Medical school.  Dr. Hamouda graduated in December 1982 and then got his PhD from Cairo Medical in 1994.  By 1997 he was in Ann Arbor  and head of the DARPA project.
  • Before 911, Dr. Hamid called his friend Dr. Hamouda to ask about patents and Dr. Hamouda reportedly said it was all in the marketing.
  • DXer reports that Dr. Hamid told him that Dr. Hamouda would visit Cairo from Khartoum and they would go to the comic store together with Dr. Hamid’s brother, a St. Louis MD.
  • DXer asks:
    • Why wasn’t Dr. Ivins told that he was being asked to supply virulent Ames to a non-citizen?
    • Why are the nearly 20 pages concerning that research not provided until 2005?
    • Why is it Dr. Ivins’ fault that a non-citizen was sprung on him without notice?
