Anthrax - Where the Fuck did that come from? Source of US attacks still uncertain

International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence Issue 1 March 2007 , pages 79 - 105 (ISSN: 1521-0561 (electronic) 0885-0607 (paper)

Curious report about Antrax at News Details Monday May 28th 2007

"....the very fact that the late 2001 anthrax letters attack on the United States has still not been solved is no less meaningful and important than that unprecedented act of bioterrorism itself....In contrast to the wealth of empirical data collected and published with respect to the specific anthrax Ames strain of the 2001 letter attack, the resultant medical cases, and the dispersal of the SSP, a relative paucity of information has been brought out regarding the structure and composition of the SSP itself. That still poses an enigmatic, extremely complex intelligence issue that needs to be elucidated, for numerous reasons. "

"Matsumoto (Matsumoto, Gary - "Anthrax Powder: State of the Art?," Science, Vol. 302, 27 November 2003, pp. 1492-1497. ) accentuates "a technique used to anchor silica nanoparticles to the surface of spores , a silica dust called Aerosil and an Aerosil variant called Cab-O-Sil," which was tested by U.S. Army laboratories. He points out, as well, that "Iraq's chemical and biological warfare labs imported tons of both Cab-O-Sil and Aerosil ," and notes, referring to the benign anthrax-simulant germ Bacillus (Bacills) globigii (BG), that "the Danish company Chris-Hansen sprayed-dried the spores (along with an unidentified "additive") about 100 times more concentrated then the U.S. Army's old BG powder mixed silica into the powder - that silica being a product sold commercially under the name Sipernat D13 made by Germany's Degussa AG, the same company that makes Aerosil." Such technical footprints may latently bear invaluable intelligence."

"At any rate, all this is but the tip of the iceberg. Facing an increasing Iranian and Islamist technical intelligence assault, non-Islamic countries must establish effective methods to protect information and materials that are classified, concern - directly or indirectly - militarily critical technologies, are subject to export controls, or are proprietary assets that are the intellectual property of a specific firm or individual."

What about Dr. Francis Boyle?

'The terrorists who perpetrated the 2001 anthrax attack on Congress likely were US government scientists at the army's Ft. Detrick, MD., bioterrorism lab having access to "moonsuits" that enabled them to safely process and manufacture super-weapons-grade anthrax, an eminent authority on the subject says.

Although only a "handful" of scientists had the ability to perpetrate the crime, the culprit among them may never be identified as the FBI ordered the destruction of the anthrax culture collection at Ames, IA., from which the Ft. Detrick lab got its pathogens, the authority said.

This action makes it impossible "to pin-point precisely where, when, and from whom these bio-agents had originated," said Dr. Francis A. Boyle of the University of Illinois at Champaign.

Boyle, who drafted the US Biological Weapons Convention of 1989 enacted by Congress, said destruction of the Ames anthrax "appears to be a cover-up orchestrated by the FBI."

If impartial scientists could have performed genetic reconstruction of the anthrax found in letters mailed to Senators Daschle (D-S.D.) and Patrick Leahy, (D -Vt.), "the trail of genetic evidence would have led directly back to a secret but officially-sponsored US government biowarfare program that was illegal and criminal" in violation of biological weapons conventions and US laws, Boyle said.

"I believe the FBI knows exactly who was behind these terrorist anthrax attacks upon the United States Congress in the Fall of 2001, and that the culprits were US government-related scientists involved in a criminal US government biowarfare program," Boyle said.

The anthrax attacks killed five people, including two postal workers, injured 17 others, and shut down the operations of the US Congress.
In addition to then destroying the anthrax, the FBI "retained every independent life-scientist it could locate as part of its fictitious investigation, and then swore them all to secrecy so that they cannot publicly comment on the investigation or give their expert opinion," Boyle said.
..."Could the real culprits behind the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001, and the immediately following terrorist anthrax attacks upon Congress ultimately prove to be the same people?"

Because of its "bogus investigation," Boyle said, "the greatest political crime in the history of the United States of America since its founding on 4 July, 1776 - the anthrax attacks on Congress, which served not only to deliver a terrorist threat on its members, but actually to close it down for a period - may remain officially unresolved forever."

"Could it truly be coincidental," he continued, "that two of the primary intended victims of the terrorist anthrax attacks - Senators Daschle and Leahy - were holding up the speedy passage of the pre-planned USA Patriot Act ... an act which provided the federal government with unprecedented powers in relation to US citizens and institutions?"
