Anthrax Attacks - Solved?
From the beginning the anthrax attacks shortly after 9/11 seemed a false flag operation to whip up hysteria against Muslim terrorists and Iraq in particular.
Today's dramatic developments of a U.S. conservative scientist who helped in the investigation committing suicide as he was about to be charged in the case finally might turn some attention to this issue. It has been obvious to me for many years that US labs were responsible for the strain of anthrax involved, a conclusion easily reached by anyone who has closely followed the story.
Of course, Glenn Greenwald is absolutely correct - ABC News falsely blamed Iraq for years and either made stuff up to support that accusation or relied on people who made stuff up.
Bruce E. Ivins and Steven Hatfil had many supporters in the conservative media intent on proving that the anthrax attacks were from foreign terrorists and not American scientists involved in anthrax and anthrax vacine research.
