The anthrax attacks started on 9/18/01. The lethal anthrax spores -- which were sent along with notes purportedly written by Islamic terrorists -- used a weaponized anthrax strain from the top U.S. bioweapons facility, the Fort Detrick military base
. Indeed, top bioweapons experts have stated that the anthrax attack may have been a CIA test "gone wrong"
; and see this article by a former NSA and naval intelligence officer
White House staff began taking the anti-anthrax medicine before the Anthrax attacks occurred.
Moreover, the only congress people mailed anthrax-containing letters were key Democrats, and the attacks occurred one week before passage of the freedom-curtailing Patriot Act,
which seems to have scared them and the rest of congress into passing that act without even reading it (this is not a partisan issue, since this author believes that party affiliation is not a reliable indicator of loyalty to the Constitution; rather, the senators targeted just happened to pose a threat in 2001 to passage of the Patriot Act). The bioterror scare appears to have instilled sufficient fear and disruption among legislators that they would be willing to let the Patriot Act be passed without real analysis or debate.
Think this is all far-fetched to be true? Well, the bioweapons expert who actually drafted the current bioweapons law (the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989) has said that he is convinced the October 2001 anthrax attacks that killed five people were perpetrated and covered up by criminal elements of the U.S. government. The motive: to foment a police state by killing off and intimidating opposition to post-9/11 legislation such as the USA PATRIOT Act and the later Military Commissions Act
Indeed, "The FBI has completely shut Congress out of its now five-year investigation into anthrax attacks on Capitol Hill and around the nation". In other words, Congress -- which legally has every right to know what really happened, and which was the main victim of the attack -- is being kept in the dark.
And the authorities have mysteriously failed to investigate the main suspect in the anthrax attacks.
Given the above-described facts, it appears that the truth of the Anthrax attack, just like the September 11th attack, has been covered up and needs further investigation.
