Even though Bush Doctrine supporters and the usual neo-con loving media mouthpieces continue to insist that George and Dick have kept America safe, conveniently, AFTER 9-11.....reality demonstrates such fabrication as just another lie from the most untruthful groups ever to occupy the White House and place a telepromter reader in a teevee anchor chair.
Weeks after the Towers fell, the U.S. was attacked again. And just like when 19 hijackers successfully penetrated our defenses, someone also penetrated our security system twice more on September 18, 2001 and again on October 9, 2001.....mailing anthrax filled letters out, curiously, to primarily high profile Democratic figures and media locations.
The same strong protectors of America that were controlling America's security levers before 9-11....were the same strong protectors controlling America's security when more Americans died weeks later from biological warfare.
Also eerily similar is the fact that, now in 2008, Bin Laden still hasn't been brought to "justice", and the anthrax culprit(s) haven't been either. Not only did the Bush/Cheney protectors of America fail to stop those TWO terrorist attacks from happening in the first place.....they haven't caught the culprits who orchesrated the attacks, either. Bush/Cheney have failed on both ends of the events.
The anthrax investigation is still ongoing. I know, I was surprised as well. Though kept relatively quiet all these years, I strongly believe that where the anthrax came from originally should be broadcast and repeated far and wide. The reason? I am of the opinion that our government leaders can't be trusted. It's just the way I approach national and international events.
March 28, 2008 from FOX News...
The FBI has narrowed its focus to "about four" suspects in the 6 1/2-year investigation of the deadly anthrax attacks of 2001, and at least three of those suspects are linked to the Army’s bioweapons research facility at Fort Detrick in Maryland, FOX News has learned.
Among the pool of suspects are three scientists — a former deputy commander, a leading anthrax scientist and a microbiologist — linked to the research facility, known as USAMRIID.
The FBI has collected writing samples from the three scientists in an effort to match them to the writer of anthrax-laced letters that were mailed to two U.S. senators and at least two news outlets in the fall of 2001, a law enforcement source confirmed.
"Fort Detrick is run by the United States Army. It's the most secure biological warfare research center in the United States," a bioterrorism expert told FOX News.Link
Americans should be aware that the anthrax sent out in letters only weeks after the Twin Towers fell came from an United States Army bioweapons research facility. Let me repeat that,....the anthrax sent out in the mail, which resulted in numerous deaths, which was sent to Tom Daschle and Pat Leahy's offices, originated from an U.S. Army bioweapons research facility right here in the good ole' U.S.A.
Because we know that the anthrax was "home grown", and because we know the home grown anthrax came from a military location.....it leads me to suggest a couple of possibilities.
#1-The anthrax was sent out by a disgruntled person who had access to this stuff. Some random nut, maybe like the Unabomber. This was the line pushed by the media initially, perhaps prompted by Bush officials using Steven Hatfill as their whipping boy. Draining swamps and scouring Hatfill's life and movements, going down into all the nooks and crannies of hypothetical nonsense and in so doing creating a national impression that Hatfill was, indeed, the disgruntled whacko who did the evil deed. Even though he wasn't.
I suppose it is still possible that yet another potential disgruntled or disturbed individual who just happened to have access to highly securitized weapons grade anthrax powder on a military establishment will be outed as the villain. I'm admitting that is still a possibility, however remote.
#2-The anthrax was sent out, selectively, on the order of higher ups in our government. One motivation may have been to help promote the idea that Saddam should be attacked. We now know, many years later, that Rumsfeld, Bush and Cheney wanted to hit Iraq immediately after 9-11. Saddam's Iraq was, at the very least, known for using biological warfare against Iran. Saddam also had a history of possessing anthrax and other dangerous substances. Saddam would be an easy fit into an already conceived narrative.
A second motivation could have been to scare Congressional Democrats into granting Bush/Cheney the widest of police state militaristic powers to do whatever they wanted. Such granting of powers is found in the Patriot Act.
Tom Carey was inspector in charge of the FBI Amerithrax investigation from October 2001 to April 2002.
On an Iraqi connection,
"What I would say is the information that came out there that led weapons inspectors and others to suspect the Iraq connection was wrong information. Now it doesn’t say we still wouldn’t look for any potential connection to Iraq, or rather any other States sponsored terrorist, but what they specifically referred to didn’t exist, and it was misinformation." Link
On the possibility there was advance knowledge.....
...the Bush administration has failed to provide a complete and accurate response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request concerning the decision to place White House staff on a regimen of the powerful antibiotic, Cipro, the same day as the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. By contrast, U.S. Postal Service workers from Washington, DC’s Brentwood Postal Facility – Judicial Watch clients – were denied antibiotic treatment, even after it became apparent that the Brentwood facility had been contaminated.

Sandwiched in between the introduction of the Patriot Act in Congress and the final vote to pass the Patriot Act....came the second round of anthrax letters. That round specifically targeted two Democratic Party leaders who had been voicing their displeasure with provisions in the bill.
Conclusion for now: In hindsight and after having had scare tactics used on us for so many years now.....I don't think it is too big of a stretch to understand the anthrax attacks as the final motivating factor provoking even staunch civil liberties Democrats into voting for the totally anti and un American.....Patriot Act.
This would mean, naturally, and I've believed this for a long time now, that the Bush/Cheney regime had successfully engineered, and continues to this day to carry out, an overthrow of the United States of America.
To me, it is impossible...incredible....to suggest all of this is just coincidence.
