Make you wonder……
Even after 10 years, no conclusions or arrests on the anthrax attack. Of course, it came from a government lab but under who’s direction or orders? Was it a rogue element or was somebody under top level command?
A National Research Council committee on Tuesday questioned the scientific approaches and conclusions in the FBI‘s investigation of the 2001 anthrax mailings, saying that while the bureau’s scientific data provided leads to the deadly chemical’s origin, it could not rule out other possible sources.
The committee‘s lengthy report said it was “not possible to reach a definitive conclusion about the origins of the anthrax in letters mailed to New York City and Washington, D.C.,” which the FBI said led directly to Bruce Ivins. The 52-year-old federal researcher committed suicide in 2008 when the bureau began to focus on him as the suspect in the attacks, which left five people dead.
The FBI had identified Ivins, a vaccine researcher at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in Frederick, Md., as the killer, based on a match investigators made of the spores in his lab to ones discovered in the envelopes.
