Anthrax, Congress and the Patriot Act
While 9/11 was mainly aimed at the American people, the anthrax attacks were apparently aimed at Congress. Specifically, the bioterror scare appears to have been launched in order to instill sufficient fear and disruption among the few remaining legislators who still honor the Constitution 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. (While many in Congress may be complicit in alot of dastardly deeds, you don't want the victims of a false flag attack to know who really attacked them).
And the authorities have mysteriously failed to investigate the main suspect in the anthrax attacks, yet another indication that the attacks were a false flag misdirection.
Without 9/11, the American public would not have given in to the Bush administration's imperial agenda. Without the anthrax attack, Congress would not have let the Constitution be demolished so quickly. A few legislators would probably have successfully stood against the Patriot Act, or at least demanded that that law be read and analyzed before it was adopted.
While not nearly as many people were killed by the Anthrax attack as by 9/11, the anthrax attack was also an important false flag operation - one aimed directly at Congress.
