F.B.I. Asks Panel to Delay Report on Anthrax Inquiry

F.B.I. Asks Panel to Delay Report on Anthrax Inquiry
By SCOTT SHANE

WASHINGTON — The Federal Bureau of Investigation has requested a last-minute delay in the release of a report on the bureau’s anthrax investigation by the National Academy of Sciences, prompting a congressman to say that the bureau “may be seeking to try to steer or otherwise pressure” the academy’s scientific panel “to reach a conclusion desired by the bureau.”

Representative Rush D. Holt, a Democrat of New Jersey and a physicist who has often been critical of the investigation, made the remarks in a letter Thursday to the F.B.I.’s director, Robert S. Mueller III, saying that he found the bureau’s request for a delay “disturbing.” The F.B.I. has told the committee that it wants to turn over an additional 500 pages of investigative documents not provided previously despite the committee’s request for all relevant material when it began the review in April 2009.

GRIM REAPER is a Trojan Horse for 911truth

Dear Friends:

Like Annie Savoy, we all share something in common - a self-awareness of deception, of knowing our fellow countrymen remain deceived. Many of us still feel the angst, anger, and frustration that comes with knowing the guilty remain unpunished and that the masses and media refuse to see what lies hidden in plain sight. We toss rocks at ponds, never registering a splash.

Panel to review FBI work in anthrax case

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Congressional investigators plan to examine how the FBI determined that one scientist was responsible for the deadly 2001 anthrax attacks, a lawmaker said.

The Government Accountability Office will look into how reliable and accurate the FBI's scientific and technical methods were when it concluded Dr. Bruce Ivins was responsible for the anthrax-laced letters sent in 2001.

The letters killed five people, sickened 17 others, jolted a nation reeling from the September 11 attacks and resulted in one of the FBI's largest investigations ever, with more than 1,000 people facing scrutiny.

By 2007 investigators determined that a single-spore batch of anthrax created and maintained by Ivins at his laboratory in Maryland was the parent material for the spores in the letters.

TRUTH GATHERING Manifesto & News Update

An Update from the Truth Gathering, Aug 14-16, Catskill Mountains,
http://www.sanderhicks.com/truthgathering.html

Hi Folks! I wanted to enjoy this visionary statement from Maryland lawyer and Anthrax-Truth investigator, Barry Kissin.

He inspired me to add an entire extra day (Monday, Aug 16) to the Truth Gathering, so that we make the time to strategize about solutions, political moves, and strategy, as a movement, and as the "Truth Party."

On a lighter note, I have been dualistically emphasizing the serious AND the fun about the Truth Gathering.

And on the topic of fun, I have brewed a very special "Truth Party Foundation American Pale Ale" with caramel malts, ginger, Pilsen Light malt extract, chinook and amarillo hops. We will debut this ale at the Saturday 1 PM (Aug 14) BBQ that kicks off the Truth Gathering. [and IF you don't drink, I respect you, I will make you feel included by brewing you a special iced tea!]

We have SOME housing available, see the website: http://www.sanderhicks.com/TGhousingspecial.html

The Boiling Frogs Presents Professor Francis Boyle: Podcast Show #28

Key Expert Calls FBI's Theory About Anthrax "Impossible"

Key Expert Calls FBI's Theory About Accused Anthrax Terrorist 'Impossible'

A microbiologist who supervised the work of accused anthrax killer Bruce E. Ivins explained to a National Academy of Sciences panel Thursday why the arithmetic of growing anthrax didn't add up to Ivins' mailing deadly spores in fall 2001.

"Impossible," said Dr. Henry S. Heine of a scenario in which Ivins, another civilian microbiologist working for the Army, allegedly prepared the anthrax spores at an Army lab at Fort Detrick. Heine told the 16-member panel that Ivins would have had to grow as many as 10 trillion spores, an astronomical amount that couldn't have gone unnoticed by his colleagues.

Congressman Rush Holt Urges Independent Anthrax Investigation

U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (NJ-12) succeeded in including language in the 2010 Intelligence Authorization Bill that would require the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community to examine the possibility of a foreign connection to the 2001 anthrax attacks. The amendment was added less than a week after the FBI arbitrarily closed its investigation.

I do not endorse the TSG view of Ivins' they seem to want to make him a subject of humorous/lascivious/voyeuristic contempt. But it's a fairly high-profile site and therefore somewhat worth noting.

A key British official reminds us of the forgotten anthrax attack
BY GLENN GREENWALD
Britain is currently engulfed by a probing, controversial investigation into how their Government came to support the invasion of Iraq, replete with evidence that much of what was said at the time by both British and American officials was knowingly false, particularly regarding the unequivocal intention of the Bush administration to attack Iraq for months when they were pretending otherwise. Yesterday, the British Ambassador to the U.S. in 2002 and 2003, Sir Christopher Meyer (who favored the war), testified before the investigative tribunal and said this:

Meyer said attitudes towards Iraq were influenced to an extent not appreciated by him at the time by the anthrax scare in the US soon after 9/11. US senators and others were sent anthrax spores in the post, a crime that led to the death of five people, prompting policymakers to claim links to Saddam Hussein. . . .

Perino: ‘We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term.’

Perino: ‘We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term.’
Last night on Fox News, host Sean Hannity whined — as he usually does — about how the Obama administration doesn’t use the term “war on terror” (which is actually a good thing). Former Bush administration spokesperson and current Fox analyst Dana Perino joined in, complaining that no one is calling the massacre at Ft. Hood a terrorist attack. She then made this astonishing statement:

PERINO: And we had a terrorist attack on our country. And we should call it what it is. Because we need to face up to it so that we can prevent it from happening again.

HANNITY: I agree with you. And why won’t they say what you just so simply said?

PERINO: They want to do all of their investigations. I don’t know. All of the thinking that goes into it. But we did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term. I hope they’re not looking at this politically. I do think we ought it to the American people to call it what it is.

Re: Dr. David Kelly - "I think it is highly likely he was assassinated"

13 doctors demand inquest into Dr David Kelly's death

By Glen Owen and Miles Goslett (Daily Mail) - Last updated at 1:19 AM on 13th July 2009

The death of Government scientist David Kelly returned to haunt Labour today as a group of doctors announced that they were mounting a legal challenge to overturn the finding of suicide.

Dr Kelly's body was found six years ago this week in woods close to his Oxfordshire home, shortly after he was exposed as the source of a BBC news report questioning the grounds for war in Iraq.

Unusually, no coroner's inquest was held into his death.

The only official verdict has come from the Hutton Inquiry, commissioned by Tony Blair, which concluded that Dr Kelly, 59, died from loss of blood after cutting his wrist with a blunt gardening knife.

Critics regarded the report as a 'whitewash', and Mr Blair remains acutely sensitive to the accusation that he has 'blood on his hands' over the scientist's death.

Big media and the lies they tell

Unspun Newz explores the dangers posed by corporate controlled media deception and propaganda. This report focuses on major cases of media deception such as, the now famous, Monsanto rBGH growth hormone case where FOX News actually fought for and won the right to lie on the news. The report also details ABCs false reports about anthrax and how ABCs Brian Ross tried to link the anthrax attacks in 2001 to Iraq. The report further explores the corporate media blackout on the recently released scientific evidence proving that high tech explosives were used to demolish the world trade center on 9/11. Unspun highlights how media lies impact public health and how they were used to mislead the people into supporting war and how those deceptions have affected us and our troops.
