Anthrax Attacks On U.S. Congress Were Inside Job

The perpetrator of the 2001 anthrax attack on Congress likely was a government scientist employed at the Army's Ft. Detrick, Md., bioterrorism lab having access to a "moonsuit" that made it possible to safely process and manufacture super-weapons-grade anthrax, a bioterrorism authority says.


Although only a "handful" of scientists had the ability to perpetrate the crime, the culprit, or culprits, 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 made 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. It was Boyle who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention.


Boyle says destruction of the Ames anthrax "appears to be a cover-up orchestrated by the FBI."


Calls for comment to two FBI press offices in Washington, D.C., on this charge were not returned. Members of the Senate have been pressing the FBI for additional information on its investigation, thought to be ongoing.


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 U.S. government biowarfare program that was illegal and criminal" in violation of biological weapons conventions and U.S. 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 U.S. government-related scientists involved in a criminal U.S. government biowarfare program," Boyle said.


The anthrax attacks killed five people, including two postal workers, injured 17 others, and temporarily shut down the operations of the U.S. Congress, Supreme Court, and other Federal entities.


Boyle, a leading American authority on international law, said after the attacks he contacted senior FBI official Marion "Spike" Bowman, who handles counter-terrorism issues, and provided him with the names of the scientists working with anthrax. Boyle told Bowman the Ft. Detrick scientists were not to be trusted.


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.


Boyle pointed out that Bowman is the same FBI agent "who played a pivotal role in suppressing evidence which in turn prevented the issuance of a search warrant for the computer of Zacarias Moussaoui, the alleged 20th al-Qaeda hijacker on 11 September 2001, which might otherwise have led to foreknowledge and therefore prevention of those terrorist attacks in the first place."


A self-confessed al-Qaeda operative, Moussaoui was detained on immigration three weeks before 9/11 when a Minnesota flight school reported he was acting suspiciously.


Boyle asked if Bowman received an FBI award in Dec., 2002, for "exceptional performance" because of his capacity "to forestall investigations, because of where they may lead?" He goes on to inquire, "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 says, "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 U.S. citizens and institutions?"


Leahy is incoming Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and may have a personal interest in holding hearings to learn who tried to kill him. An anthrax-laced letter to Leahy turned up in a search of Capitol Hill mail in the week of October 15, 2003. The letters sent to Leahy and Daschle were both postmarked from a Trenton, N.J.-area post office.


During its probe of the anthrax attack, the Justice Department identified Dr. Steven J. Hatfill, a biological defense scientist and one-time government employee, as "a person of interest." Dr. Hatfill, a medical doctor, took a post in 1997 at Ft. Detrick but left to work the next year for a private firm that helps the government create defenses against germ weapons. Dr. Hatfill has repeatedly denied any role in the anthrax attacks and said he knows nothing about anthrax production, The New York Times reported.


Boyle's views are contained in his book "Biowarfare and Terrorism", published by Clarity Press, Inc., of Atlanta, Ga. His previously published titles include, "Foundations of World Order," "The Criminality of Nuclear Deterrence," and "Destroying World Order." Dr. Boyle holds a Doctor of Law Magna Cum Laude and a Ph.D. in political science, both from Harvard.


In a forward to the book, Dr. Jonathan King, Professor of Molecular Biology at M.I.T. and a founder of the Council for Responsible Genetics, said the government's "growing bioterror programs (described by Professor Boyle) represent a significant emerging danger to our own population."


A harsh critic of Pentagon biowarfare activities, Boyle points out in inflation-adjusted dollars the U.S. spends more on them today than it did on the Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb in World War II. He has accused the Bush administration of diverting the bio-tech industry "towards biowarfare purposes" and of making corrupting payoffs to Academia to turn university scientists to the pursuit of biowarfare work.


The FBI did not return phone calls requesting comment on this article.

One of Several

The Anthrax attacks was the lessor of the "inside jobs" committed by this crime syndicate we call our government. #1 - 9/11: anyone that hasn't seen the truth of this yet is in as much denial as the thugs in the White House.#2 - stolen elections. #3 - Oklahoma City: never reported that there were two more bombs founds inside the building on the MSM. It was reported repeatedly by the OK local news though. #4 - the first attack on the WTC. Total set-up by the FBLie#5 - bush 41's killing of JFKthere are so many more but these are the top 5

Anthrax; the bridge to 9/11

Judicial Watch, hardly a leftist organization, requested information from the White House in either 2001 or early 2002, about why members of the W.H. staff began taking Cipro on the evening of 9/11. Damn good question, since the first case of anthrax did not show up for a week after 9/11, in Boca Raton, Florida (Jebistan). Nevertheless, last I checked, Judicial Watch was being just flat-out ignored.Points to ponder: Why when he menations 9/11 every other breath, does Bush never mention the attempted assassination of two senate leaders, a very serious, maybe the ultimate, offense in a Democracy, I would think? Bush has never mentioned it, as I recall.I do seem to remember a lame attempt, by someone, to connect the anthrax to Saddam, but that strategy burned up quick, when those of us who remember, suggested that the Reagan administration had given Saddam biolgical and chemical agents, probably anthrax.Nevertheless, the attack had a very identifiable effect: It locked members of Congress out of their offices, scared the living crap out of mmany of them and, thus, gave us the Patriot Act, from which all other domestic evil has flowed.Let us, please, demand answers about the anthrax assassination attempt!

Anthrax Attacks

From the very beginning I believed the attacks were an inside job. The FBI should have been able to track down the perpetrators long ago. They seemingly do not care that they are viewed as ineffective and incompetent in their failure to do so. That would imply they are protecting someone/some group much more powerful than the FBI. I am not a fan of conspiracy theories in general. Although, I do believe there was always more to the Kennedy assassinations than were told to the public. However, after 6 years of being lied to and enduring repeated deceptions, manipulations and spins; and watching as one corrupt politician after another goes down, I would put no act of lunacy past this government. If it came out that Bush himself ordered the Anthrax Attacks, I would not be shocked. Cheney would be more likely, since nothing evil is beyond that man. Truth and decency, honor and justice have no meaning whatsoever for this administration and its Congressional supporters. Acts of infamy are second nature to them: destroying a country, torture, demolition of Habeus Corpus: you name it, they have done it. The Anthrax Attacks may be the least of their sins, when and if we survive the next two years.
