FBI Closes Anthrax Investigation

Their final report can be seen here. It's an interesting read. Some of it seems like bullshit, like the DNA code he supposedly put in the letter writing. The letters in the notes, which are supposed to stand for DNA bases, just are not bolded in the notes the way the FBI claims. Also, people who work in research labs-- especially biolabs-- often work odd hours. There is nothing particularly suspicious about that.

But no doubt, Ivins was a disturbed guy, with some odd behaviors. Certainly, the FBI hounding him didn't help. I actually suspect that he was involved in the anthrax attacks at some level-- he had grown the type of anthrax used and did act suspiciously, if we are to believe the FBI. But the simple truth is that there is no direct evidence connecting him to the attacks, and even worse, he simply could not have produced the final weaponized product-- the silicon percentage was too high.

Other problems with Ivins as the Lone Sporeman, are collected here.

You are absolutely correct. The FBI case against Dr. Ivins is bogus. The real question is why they persist in such an unconvincing story. You can follow a discussion of the anthrax case and the FBI's pathetic investigation at ...www.caseclosedbylewweinstein.wordpress.com
