The Smoking Guns of the 2001 Anthrax Attacks

Must-Read:  “The 2001 Anthrax Deception”

Professor Graeme MacQueen has written a must-read book on the anthrax attacks on America: The 2001 Anthrax Deception.

Even those of us who have paid close attention to – and written broadly on – the 2001 anthrax attacks will learn stunning new information.

For example, we learned the following eye-opening facts from the book:

  • There was a set of 3 letters sent around the same time as the initial anthrax mailings, which attempted to frame the Russians for the anthrax attacks, and which warned of further attacks.  These letters could not have been sent by Dr. Bruce Ivins (the scientist the FBI blamed for the attacks), nor could they have been “copycat” letters
  • Less than 3 months before the anthrax attack, the government carried out a simulated exercise called “Dark Winter”, where: a lethal germ had been aerosolized then released; anonymous letters threatened anthrax attacks; Iraq and Al Qaeda are blamed for the attacks; and preparations are made for the drastic reduction of civil liberties in the United States, including martial law
  • The National Academy of Sciences found that the anthrax mailed to Congressmen and the media could have come from a different source altogether than the flask maintained by Ivins
  • The Department of Justice argued in a lawsuit that the anthrax used in the attacks was of a completely different nature (dried, aerosolized, and specially treated to act as a lethal weapon) than maintained by Dr. Ivins (a standard liquid solution):
  • PBS’ Frontline, ProPublica and McClatchy newspaper all found that Dr. Ivins was doing valid and important work during the timeframes when the FBI claims that he “went missing”
  • There is reason to suspect that the same people who carried out 9/11 also carried out the anthrax attacks

We’re not the only people who have already spent countless hours researching the anthrax attacks who MacQueen’s work enlightening. For example, Meryl Nass, M.D. – consultant on the prevention and mitigation of bioterrorism for the Director of National Intelligence and the World Bank, and an expert on anthrax vaccines – writes:

Finally, a book has come out that explodes the FBI’s anthrax letters case. Not only is there no evidence linking Army scientist Bruce Ivins to the crime–it turns out his famous flask of anthrax was never proven to be related to the attack spores! MacQueen peeks behind the curtain, showing that nothing about the anthrax letters case is as it seems.

And Dr. Francis A. Boyle – author of the U.S. domestic implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention, and a Professor of International Law at the University of Illinois, Champaign – notes:

Professor MacQueen provides yet another piece of the puzzle connecting the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 to the immediately following anthrax attacks of October 2001 that were indisputably conducted by Agents of the United States government.

We agree with Denis J. Halliday – UN Assistant Secretary-General from 1994-98 – who says:

This deeply troubling book should be read by all thinking Americans.

    Thank You WB …

  • The unresolved story of ABC News’ false Saddam-anthrax reports

    In October 2001, ABC News broadcast highly inflammatory and false reports linking Saddam to the anthrax attacks. Who was behind those claims, and why has ABC not retracted its stories?

    Vital unresolved anthrax questions and ABC News

    A top U.S. government scientist, suspected of the anthrax attacks, commits suicide. ABC News knows who is responsible for false reports blaming those attacks on Iraq, but refuses to say.

  • Party Like 1999

    The Anthrax atacks were needed to justify interception of all mails that reached Congress. Pure and simple.
    It’s now obvious that the Anthrax letters were a pretext allow the “legal” interception of communications to members of Congress. Mail that may have provided information that could not be intercepted or monitored in a e-mail for phone call…. For example, photos or evidence that showed the 9-11 attacks were not as protrayed.
    Not that any members of Congress would be interested in the truth about something so mundane as covert agencies of the federal government attacking their own country… Anyway.
    From the looks of things, Congress loves being frightened and herded into doing what it’s told to do. Just as long as their masters send the helicopters in time to whisk them away to their assigned bunker whilst we all fry in atomic fire.

      Do you know that there is current studies of using nuclear weapons on a “manageable” scale. As the neocons are pushing us to intimidate Russia. The only way these crazies can think this way is if they have a way to survive the destruction of America.

    For what it’s worth, I was at a biological-chemical warfare conference in June 2001 (“Detection of illicit substances, Chemical and Biological”), where about 50% of the participants were directly military, and many of the others under military contract. The theme of the conference was how to build detection systems for these toxins (e.g. a sensor system you could put in a subway station to detect for nerve gas attacks- technically more of a challenge than most people realize).

    One common thread that came up repeatedly over the course of the conference was “what do we do if there is a Uni-Powderer?” This was the term for an anonymous person who started sending anthrax via the post office. So this threat/issue was clearly on people’s minds before the October attacks began.

    And because of my participation in that (rather small) conference, I know I ended up on the FBI list of people that were investigated for their role in the Anthrax Attacks. Wheee!

      Coming events seem to cast their shadows quite a bit if there is a projector running.

    Whatever happened to the “and domestic” part of “protect us from enemies foreign and domestic”?

      The same thing that happened to “that I will support and defend the Constitution “.

    How many Amerikans would I need to quiz before finding even one who knows, or, sadly, cares about this.

      If they were incurious during the actual anthrax attacks, then they are hopeless now.

    So? Has ebola been intentionally released from “research facilities” like Plum Island was?

  • trig400

    Dr Philip Zack was on video entering the lab, but since he’s one of the chosen, all investigations have ben suppressed.
    Muslims aren’t our problem, Zionists are, because in the words of Netanyahu shortly after 911, “911 was good for Israel”..

    Was Mr. Ivins also murdered? Or tortured to the point where he committed suicide? Now that we know that torture is okay in government hands, now that we know a lot since those days, I am concerned at the circumstances surrounding Ivins’s death. There is of course no statute of limitations on murder, but as we know executive privilege allows quite a bit of it. “9/11 changed everything.”
