The 2001 Anthrax Deception: A New Book from Graeme MacQueen

Professor Graeme MacQueen has written a new book on the 2001 anthrax letter attacks. These attacks were widely blamed on extremist Muslims and their backers and used to support the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. They were also used to justify and hasten the passage of the USA PATRIOT Act, which was being presented to Congress just as the first anthrax victim grew ill.

MacQueen has begun doing interviews about the book, which has received much advanced praise.

"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." – Francis A. Boyle, author of the U.S.domestic implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention.

The website for the book can be found at this link.

Thanks for the Update

Thanks for the update, Kevin. I notice if you pre-order this, now, there is a discount and, also, shipping is free if you happen to need anything else and your order is $35.00. Personally, I have a few things on my Amazon "wish list," so this will work out great for me and I won't have to buy any vitamins or fish-oil like I usually have to do to round out my order.

Congratulations Graeme!

"This deeply troubling book should be read by all thinking Americans.”
Denis J. Halliday, UN Assistant Secretary-General 1994-98

I look forward to reading this. Looks like a great pair w/ Another Nineteen

Kudos to Halliday

I remember Dennis Halliday passionately speaking out against the Iraq War in the lead-up to the invasion (as he previously had against the sanctions regime under Clinton). But like practically every spokesperson in the ostensible 'antiwar' movement, he did not evince the slightest doubt about the 9/11 official story, strictly adhering to the 'blowback' storyline. So kudos to Halliday for keeping an open mind--as indicated by his endorsement of Graeme's book--in an area that is still taboo for the bulk of 'antiwar' activists.

Great choice

Gladly anticipating reading the book and listening to interviews. Much Thanks to Graeme MacQueen.

Great choice for subject matter. Even the mainstream media, as well as some in Congress, seriously question the official "anthrax" story.

Independent high-level biochemists consistently deny Ivins could have committed this crime alone, and generally they deny he could have done it, period.

Right from Wiki itself

"In my opinion, there are maybe four or five people in the whole country who might be able to make this stuff, and I'm one of them," said Richard O. Spertzel, former deputy commander of USAMRIID.[60] "And even with a good lab and staff to help run it, it might take me a year to come up with a product as good."[60] The spores in the Daschle letter were 1.5 to 3 micrometres across, many times smaller than the finest known grade of anthrax produced by either the U.S. or Soviet bioweapons programs.[60] An electron microscope, which costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, would be needed to verify that the target spore size had been consistently achieved.[60] The presence of the anti-clumping additive silicon in the anthrax samples also suggests a high degree of sophistication as specialists working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory were unable to duplicate this property despite 56 attempts.
From the same Wiki page:

Dr. Henry S. Heine, a microbiologist who was Ivins' fellow researcher at the Army Medical Research Institute, told a National Academy of Sciences panel on April 22, 2010 that he considered it impossible that Ivins could have produced the anthrax used in the attacks without detection.

Asked by reporters after his testimony whether he believed there was any chance that Ivins had carried out the attacks, Heine replied, “Absolutely not.” At the Army’s biodefense lab, he said, “among the senior scientists, no one believes it.”

The anthrax letter attacks occurred from September through November of 2001, killing five and wounding many. The attacks were widely held to be the work of Muslims and were used to support the invasion of Afghanistan and, later, the invasion of Iraq. They were used explicitly and repeatedly to justify the passing of the Patriot Act. They were also meant to support withdrawal from the Antiballistic Missile Treaty, a withdrawal eagerly sought by the neoconservatives associated with the Project for a New American Century who wished to pursue their global agenda without obstruction from small states with WMD. In the early days of the attacks there were several perpetrator hypotheses in play. One that gained prominence was the Double Perpetrator hypothesis according to which Iraq had supplied the sophisticated anthrax spores while al-Qaeda had supplied the foot soldiers responsible for preparing and sending the letters. This hypothesis was eagerly reported by the mainstream media. It came to grief quickly when scientists discovered that the anthrax spores had a domestic source and appeared to come from the heart of the US military and intelligence communities. The FBI rapidly began a search for "the anthrax killer," promoting the idea that there was a lone wolf perpetrator within the military community--a renegade, an unbalanced person whose behavior revealed nothing of significance about structures and institutions of the deep state. In 2008 the Bureau named Dr. Bruce Ivins of the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases as the "anthrax killer." Ivins had conveniently died a week before being named and could not fight back in court. Ivins remains the FBI's choice to this day: the case was closed in 2010. This book support with a great deal of evidence the following four assertions: (a) the anthrax letter attacks were carried out by a group of perpetrators, not by a “lone wolf;” (b) the group that perpetrated this crime was composed, in whole or in part, of deep insiders within the U.S. state apparatus; (c) these insiders were connected to the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks; (d) the anthrax attacks were meant to play an important role in the strategy of redefinition through which the Cold War was replaced by a new global conflict framework, the Global War on Terror.

All Anthrax, All the Time .... then "oops"

Probably the most telling and bizarre aspects of the 2001 anthrax attacks was the way it was handled by the US mainstream corporate media. As soon as the attack sequence was underway, the media had already named and blamed the perpetrators: al Qaeda, with no hard evidence or verifiable links. All they had was a couple of dog-eared pieces of paper, with the words:

"You cannot stop us. We have this anthrax. You die now. Are you afraid? Death to America. Death to Israel. Allah is great".

This looked as if it was scrawled left-handed by a right-handed person (or vice versa), and specifically in upper case, perhaps to both deceive handwriting experts, and to make it appear that the writer was foreign - by the use of the simplest sentences ie subject-verb-object, as well as short phrases.

Over the next two or three weeks following the initial anthrax mailing, the media was ablaze with the story - one commentator even wryly observed it was "All Anthrax, All the Time", paraphrasing the famous CNN Headline News slogan. An endless stream of government and administration officials, especially featuring the neoconservatives within the Bush Administration, got a blank check to spout their interpretation of the attack, dropping the "Osama bin Laden" and "al Qaeda" tags with every opportunity. Then, it was discovered that the high grade anthrax spores had a domestic origin: the Ft. Detrick bio-weapons facility. A big OOOPS!!!: if this was al Qaeda, then how did they gain access to one of the nation's most well guarded weapons facilities on a military base? Obviously they didn't... so the story suddenly stopped, literally on a dime, like a Formula One race car running into a cliff at 180mph. The media's coverage went from All Anthrax All the Time, to a roaring silence.

This was clearly a case of the media lining up behind the Bush Administration, to further terrorize the American people. already shocked and awed by what had happened only a few weeks before - this was the right hook K.O. punch to finish the job on an already psychologically battered public. if a terrorist entity that wants to target America actually exists - then their best friend was (and remains) the US corporate media.

From another thread

And then when the story resurfaced, the coverage was about trying to paint Steven Hatfill as the fall guy. Until he successfully fought back and defended himself. Another 'Oops!' Then it disappeared again until they'd worked out the frame-up of Ivins.

Comments about Robbie Martin's documentary from earlier this year are also relevant to this thread:

Prof. Graeme McQueen’s new book: “Anthrax part of neocon 9/11 false flag op”

Flashback to 2008 : Anthrax Not The Work Of One Lone Scientist

...skip to 1: 47 for press conference where question of "what direct evidence do you have that proves Ivins is the mailer" is asked.


Surprising to hear Gerald Posner, of all people--with his condescending treatment of 'conspiracy theorists' in other contexts--speaking of the possibility that Ivins could have been 'a cutout or a patsy,' and frankly disbelieving that it was the work of one person alone.
