The anthrax attacks of 2001 and nerve agent scare of 2006 help to clarify and explain what is happening to our country.

The anthrax attacks -- which were sent along with notes purportedly written by Islamic terrorists -- used a weaponized anthrax strain from the top U.S. bioweapons facility, the Fort Detrick military base. Indeed, top bioweapons experts have stated that the anthrax attack may have been a CIA test "gone wrong"; and see this article by a former NSA and naval intelligence officer.

Interestingly, White House staff began taking the anti-anthrax medicine before the Anthrax attacks occurred.

Moreover, the only congress people mailed anthrax-containing letters were key Democrats, and the attacks occurred one week before passage of the freedom-curtailing Patriot Act, which seems to have scared them and the rest of congress into passing that act without even reading it (this is not a partisan issue, since this author believes that party affiliation is not a reliable indicator of loyalty to the Constitution; rather, the senators targeted just happened to pose a threat in 2001 to passage of the Patriot Act).

History appears to be repeating itself this week. Only hours after sensors in a U.S. Senate office building detected a nerve agent, key Senators suddenly reversed direction and announced a capitulation to the White House's demands on the renewal and expansion of the Patriot Act.

The anthrax attacks and nerve agent "scare" help to illustrate that America's enemies are inside the gates, and that they are more than willing to use scare tactics and even false flag terror methods to achieve their objectives.

While 9/11 was mainly aimed at the American people, the anthrax attacks and nerve gas scare were apparently aimed at Congress. Specifically, the bioterror scares appear to have been launched in order to instill sufficient fear and disruption among the few remaining legislators who still honor the Constitution that they would be willing to let the Patriot Act be passed and then reenacted without real analysis or debate.

Without 9/11, the American public would not have given in to the Bush administration's imperial agenda. Without the bioterror scares, Congress would not have let the Constitution be demolished so quickly. A few legislators would probably have successfully stood against the Patriot Act, or at least demanded that that law be read and analyzed before it was adopted.

Indeed, America is not alone in playing this game. Draconian "anti-terror" legislation recently passed in England right after a bioterror scare.

Excellent article! Yes,

Excellent article! Yes, letÂ’s not forget those mysterious Anthrax letters.

The whiff of an Anthrax letter + the threat of more letters, understandably scared the hell out of the remaining few Democrats who were resisting the “Patriot” Act. As soon as scientists traced the Anthrax strain as being produced by a Fed lab, even these meager investigations were halted.

9/11 Murders.......Anthrax.......WMD lies.......Iraq War = HIGH TREASON inside UNITED STATES of AMERICA!

Bob Stevens, a photo editor

Bob Stevens, a photo editor working for a Florida newspaper, was the first American to die in the 911 anthrax attacks. Bob's mistake was to publish an unflattering photograph of a drunken Jenna Bush, daughter of the President. Some sort of Xmas present to Bush from Osama apparently.

The fakeness of the Osama confession video was ignored by the US public because they simply could not handle it psychologically.

The anthrax attacks fall into the same category. The idea that Osama would attack Bush critics in Congress and elsewhere was so confronting that people just chose to pretend it never happened - a good example of emotions driving the public rather than brains.

Above all else, we've got to feel good about ourselves, right? And we can't feel good about ourselves if we have to admit that our elected leaders are murderers. Therefore, dismiss all the evidence.

Great post, Damien! Yet

Great post, Damien! Yet another piece of the endless trail of evidece pointing to the White House.

Seems photo editior Bob Stevens was a real thorn in the sides of the Bushies. Not only the twins, but Gov. Jeb too.

Bob Stevens was an ordinary, obscure guy. Except he embarrassed the Bushies a number of times. Gee, what a damn coincidence that Stevens is targeted by an anthrax letter and dies. Unbelievably bad luck. Sure.

Even an idiot like W could connect these dots!

i think the anthrax story

i think the anthrax story needs to feature more in 9/11 related movies/books.
