Insights Into the Question of Whether the Anthrax was Weaponized

Remember how the FBI was instructed to blame the Anthrax attacks on Al Qaeda by White House officials in 2001?

Well, according to Washington Post reporter and Assistant Managing Editor for Investigations at The Washington Post Marilyn Thompson, the US government ordered Fort Detrick's USAMRIID bioweapons facility to "tone down" its description of the Daschle anthrax as "weaponized."

Moreover, scientists originally found that an electrical charge and high-tech silicon-coating were added to the killer anthrax to make it more lethal. As pointed out by anthrax expert Dr. Meryl Nass:

"If a charge were added to the spores, the charge would be expected to dissipate over days or weeks; thus the characteristics of the anthrax could have changed when inspected later. Furthermore, Dr. John Ezzell initially evaluated this anthrax in a high containment lab at USAMRIID. It was later processed before sharing with some other labs, to reduce its lethality. This processing likely changed other characteristics as well."

Therefore, there were not only political reasons for backing away from the finding of weaponization, but there may also have been physical reasons that the weaponization might have been less apparent to scientists who subsequently studied it.

Thank you

for keeping on top of this issue and providing so many citations. This is the smoking gun that proves government complicity in the events of 9-11. Since it has been definitively traced to the U.S. government, it nullifies claims that the government would never do such a thing, one of the stumbling blocks for the acceptance of 9-11 truth.

Interestingly, a reporter from AP who wrote on the anthrax issue was interviewed on C-Span, and she tried to make light of the weaponization issue, saying that any old anthrax stuck in an envelop would do. Anthrax is anthrax, she said. My ears definitely peaked up when I heard this.

Alex Jones talks with Francis A. Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law and bioweapons advisor for the Bush Senior administration about his belief the anthrax attacks were orchestrated to frighten Senators into supporting the USA Patriot Act.

Military Industrial Complex-our heros!

from 1998.....
"The sale of the Michigan Biologic Products Institute, the last state-owned vaccine laboratory in the United States, gives Admiral Crowe's newly formed company, the BioPort Corporation, an inside track on at least $60 million in Pentagon contracts for anthrax vaccine to protect the nation's 2.4 million members of the armed forces and reservists against an anthrax attack. "

"Admiral Crowe, who was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1985 to 1989, when he retired after 47 years in the military, said in a recent interview that he was aware of the risk of favoritism and the perception of it but that he believed a move to strengthen defenses against an anthrax attack was more important."
