“This is rumor control! Here are the facts…”
It is not surprising that the government’s official story about the second worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil should have nearly as many holes in it and unanswered questions, as it’s prequel; 9/11. And it is ALL based on one court document witness statement, that originated… with the FBI.
But as hastily as the “official spokespersons” and the MSM are rushing to hang this heinous crime around the neck of Dr. Bruce Ivins, people like Glenn Greenwald, Rachel Maddow, and Atrios are trying to kick open the shutters to shed a little light on the matter. Let’s see if we can help them out, shall we?

After yesterday’s fiasco, late last night, I checked the New York Times site again, and they had just put up another articleabout Dr. Ivins. This is an outstanding article that I highly recommend (just don’t leave the site before you finish reading it or they will force you to register with the NYT to look at it again). This is an even-handed piece that explores some serious questions about the government case against Ivins. But I will get back to this one later.
Then, this morning, I checked to see it, and another article was up on the front page dealing with Dr. Ivins and anthrax; this one, isn’t even close to being neutral journalism.
The article is called “Anthrax Suspect’s Death Is Dark End for a Family Man” and it is by SARAH ABRUZZESE (sic) and Eric Lipton. Let me give you an idea of what not being close to neutral journalism means.
The short article starts off by saying that Dr. Ivins arrived at “a group counseling session” last month (July). “A” session, meaning one. (So right off the bat, the article is insinuating he is in need of physiological help.) In the same paragraph they say, quoting NO SOURCE FOR THIS STATEMENT, that Dr. Ivins stated “...he had bought a bulletproof vest and a gun as he contemplated killing his co-workers at the nearby Army research laboratory.” This is “hearsay” testimony with absolutely ZERO reference as to it’s origin. That’s pretty amazing that the New York Times editorial staff let this through.
So right away, in this article, we have a picture of a psychotic Dr. Ivins wielding a weapon and wearing a vest, hunting down his office mates, cubicle by cubicle; all based on… nothing. Absolutely, nothing. And this is on the front page of the New York Times website.
But it goes on from there, and gets even worse. These are the next passages in NYT story:
“He was going to go out in a blaze of glory, that he was going to take everybody out with him,”said a social worker in a transcript of a hearing at which she sought a restraining order against Dr. Ivins after his threats.
The ranting represented the final stages of psychological declineby Dr. Ivins that ended when he took his life this week, as it became clear that he was a suspect in the 2001 anthrax attacks.”
It would seem to be all there. All we need to know about this guy; when the pressures on, he becomes a mass murderer. See that? How neatly it all wraps up. But the only problem is, that this guy worked for 18 years with one of the highest security clearances in the department of defense. How did all those educated and degreed psychologists and psychiatrists miss this criminal intent, that a “social worker” picked up on in ONE group session? How come this guy only went off ONCE and attacked the nation with anthrax? Don’t mass murders and serial killers continue their acts like Theodore John Kaczynski?
But, for now, let’s let that pass and focus on the diligent researchers, Abruzzese and Lipton’s, finally revealed source: Ms. Jean Duley and her hand-written restraining order complaint, filed LATE LAST WEEK, a day or so before Dr. Ivin’s apparent suicide.
Ms. Jean Duley was/is(?) a social worker for a company in Maryland that Dr. Ivins attended at least ONE group session with. Now, every single comment in the news headlines about Dr. Ivins being a psychopath or wanting to kill people, every single one of them, comes from what they call “court documents” from Maryland. And they ALL refer to the ONE handwritten document filed by Ms. Jean Duley, two days before Dr. Ivins reported suicide.
This is the entire case for Dr. Ivins being a homicidal maniac. AND SHE ADMITS IN THE DOCUMENT THAT THE FBI HAS ALREADY BEEN IN CONTACT WITH HER! Meaning, the FBI, the same agency that screwed up the Hatfill case so bad the government had to pay him 5.8 million tax-payer dollars less than a MONTH before all of this took place, that SAME FBI spoke to Ms. Jean Duley… and then she goes into court in the morning and files this report THAT IS THE ONLY THING THAT ANYONE CAN USE TO INCRIMINATE DR. IVINS!
Don’t believe me? To conspiratorial? Read it for yourself in the actual documents she filed two days before his “suicide”. On the second page, is the mention that she has been in contact with the FBI.
So, less than a month after Hatfill was exonerated by the government and the settlement of 5.8 million bucks was announced, the FBI effectively wraps up the 6 year Anthrax Investigation, in less than a month.
Aside from the fact that Dr. Ivins had no reason to send anthrax to the people that recieved it (how does one “test his vaccine” if he hadn’t given them the vaccine?
Aside from the fact that everyone of his co-workers that has spoken out at this time about him says this makes no sense, that he wasn’t the kind of man to do it.
Aside from the fact that as many have pointed out by now, including the NYT, that Dr. Ivins was into vaccine research and couldn’t have produced the weapons grade anthrax if he wanted to.
Aside from the fact that he was a Red Cross volunteer who played piano in his church choir.
Aside from the fact that he was still employed at the research facility where “court documents” suggest he was going to kill everyone.
Aside from the fact that he won the highest civilian award that the department of defense gives out for his research and commitment to an anthrax vaccine that protects our soldier’s to this day.
Aside from the fact that this “homicidal maniac” never once used the weapons grade anthrax (that he had no access to) again after the USA Patriot Act was signed into law.
Aside from ALL of that, the New York Times runs with this story, based entirely on “court documents” from one source; Ms. Jean Duley who admittedly had already been in contact with the FBI.
But, the New York Times fails to mention that fact in their article.
This is rumor control! Those are the facts…
