> FBI Implicated in Anthrax Mailings Cover-up:
> Mueller Reports No Intention to Investigate Chief Suspect 
> Sandpoint, ID —FBI officials may be implicated in a conspiracy
> to impede justice in the anthrax mailings case, if not
> treasonous dereliction of duty, according to a growing number
> of scientists and consumer advocates. After officials cited the
> likeliest origin of the powdered anthrax was the U.S. Army’s
> Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah, or its Ohio-based supplier and
> CIA-contractor, Battelle Memorial Instititue (BMI), FBI
> Director Robert Mueller announced the bureau has no intention
> of investigating anyone with, or formerly with, their chief
> suspect—BMI.
> Just weeks ago, major progress in the FBI’s investigation
> seemed forthcoming. The New York Times and Washington Post
> revealed that BMI, Dugway’s anthrax facility supplier and chief
> administrator had contracted with the CIA (in project “Clear
> Vision”) to produce, albeit illegally, the 1 trillion spore-per-
> gram strain of anthrax under investigation. BMI, while heading
> the U.S. military’s “Joint Vaccine Acquisitions Program” worth
> more than $1 billion in vaccine contracts, commissioned
> America’s top anthrax expert, William C. Patrick, III, to
> deliver a report on the powdered anthrax’s prospects for being
> spread through the mail.
> Thus, by mid-December, the public, including health scientists
> urged to help federal officials identify suspects, realized
> that someone with high level security clearance, a “black-op
> budget,” access to the BMI/Dugway anthrax labs, and vaccine
> sales incentive, most likely took BMI’s powdered anthrax, and
> prepared it for mailing from Trenton, NJ; St. Petersburg, FL;
> Atlanta, GA; and Malaysia.
> For the first time since the 1975 Frank Church congressional
> investigation of the CIA for illegally stockpiling anthrax and
> other biological weapons, the public learned that the CIA had
> been violating the international Geneva Accord moratorium on
> biological weapons development—a revelation somewhat
> embarrassing to American diplomats engaged in the global “War
> on Terrorism.”
> The day before Christmas, an Op Ed piece in the Wall Street
> Journal additionally implicated BMI, and potentially the FBI,
> along with rogue elements within the CIA, in an international
> conspiracy to commit and cover-up the anthrax mailings crime. 
> BMI and Bioport, a Michigan-based offshoot of Britain’s leading
> biological weapons organization at Porton Down, were previously
> reported to be collaborating on the manufacture and supply of
> America’s only anthrax vaccine. Dr. Robert C. Myers, Chief
> Operating Officer of BioPort, told a Senate Appropriations
> Committee in 1996 that he “was part of a team of organizations,
> led by Battelle Memorial Institute . . . ” The Journal writer
> Edward Jay Epstein cited the testimony of U.S. Army bioweapons
> official David Franz concerning America’s reliance on British
> intelligence provided by Porton Down officials regarding the
> development and use of the powdered Ames strain of anthrax.
> Thus, the FBI’s disregard of foreign suspects, especially
> Porton Down, with direct links to Bioport and BMI’s anthrax
> vaccine, vaccine contracts, and BMI’s and Dugway’s anthrax
> experiments, was criticized by Epstein as it was days earlier
> in the Washington Post.
> More evidence of the FBI’s intentional ineptitude came from the
> Columbus Dispatch. Though the Washington Post reported that the
> FBI was allegedly pursuing the possibility that financial gain
> was the motive behind the anthrax mailings, and that “two
> laboratories” were especially implicated, that is, BMI and
> Dugway, a contradictory announcement was relayed the same day
> (Dec. 21, 2001) by Ohio Senator Mike DeWine. Based on an ABC
> News report concerning a BMI employee who had been under FBI
> investigation for an anthrax threat, FBI Director Robert
> Mueller had, according to The Dispatch, assured Senator DeWine
> that the bureau was not investigating, nor intending to
> investigate, anyone with, or formerly with, BMI.
> Currently then, the FBI has no intention of investigating its
> chief suspect, despite the grave likelihood that the remaining
> mystery will continue to exact massive economic and socio-
> political tolls.
> These proceedings have bewildered and even outraged many
> scientists and public health professionals from whom the FBI
> requested assistance.
>  “If Senator DeWine’s statements accurately reflect director
> Mueller’s intention to disregard all of the most damning
> evidence concerning Battelle and allied vaccine makers,” said
> Dr. Leonard Horowitz, “then the American people should demand a
> new FBI director, and Congress should demand the General
> Accounting Office investigate the bureau’s misconduct.”
> Dr. Horowitz, among a handful of infectious disease authorities
> who openly criticized the CIA’s illegal biological weapons
> program involving anthrax in his national bestselling book,
> Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola—Nature, Accident or
> Intentional?, was the first to develop the theory that BMI and
> the CIA may be acting on behalf of British profiteers in what
> he says amounts to “military-industrial sabotage approaching
> American economic genocide.” His lengthy report on the case,
> initially submitted to the FBI, is available from his
> publisher’s website at
> ml. 
> In defending the FBI’s position, the Washington Post reported
> that the bureau only learned of a BMI-administered
> CIA “defensive” biowarfare contract involving the Ames-strain
> of anthrax in recent weeks. “The CIA program was [allegedly]
> designed to develop defenses to a vaccine-resistant strain of
> anthrax reportedly created by the former Soviet Union,”
> officials defended. CIA spokespersons expressed certainty
> that “the anthrax used in the mailings did not come from their
> work.”
> Taking the agency on its word, the powdered anthrax may not
> have “come from their work,” but their contractor’s work, that
> is, BMI.
> Critics claim this CIA defense is deceptive for at least two
> other reasons: 1) the Soviet Union’s most potent anthrax was
> only half as concentrated as this new CIA/Battelle creation;
> and 2) it is an American/British—Ames, Iowa—strain prototype,
> not a Soviet creation, and not resembling anything available to
> Iraq or other countries favored by terrorists. This spoils the
> excuse the powdered anthrax was produced for any form
> of “defense,” including vaccines.
> “Vaccines are developed to help guard against pre-existing
> threats,” said Ingri Cassel, director of the national
> Vaccination Liberation association—a consumer education and
> advocacy group. “This anthrax powder was illegally prepared,
> apparently for offensive military uses, sabotage, and even
> terrorism. You simply don’t develop a new hyper-weaponized
> strain of anthrax powder for military defense, which implies
> preventive vaccinations against old Soviet threats, and then
> commission the top U.S. anthrax expert [William C. Patrick,
> III] to report on this new weapon’s capability and lethality
> from mailed delivery, unless that’s how you foresee it being
> used,” Ms. Cassel reasoned.
> Many people are pondering the suspicious “Machiavellian-like”
> targeting of the mass media and congressional Democrats
> (liberals) befitting the phrase “the ends justifies the means.”
> Multi-million dollar vaccine contracts, fast-tracked drug
> approvals, and frenzied consumer and legislative demand for
> costly, risky, and largely ineffective vaccines, antibiotics,
> and other high-priced preventives are the most obvious results
> of the anthrax mailings. 
> Referring to the unprecedented silica-based, electro-statically
> charged, dry powdered form of hyper-concentrated anthrax sent
> through the mail to members of the media and Senators Daschle
> and Leahy, Dr. Horowitz concluded, “It was the only form of
> anthrax that could be effectively spread, as it was, through
> the U.S. mail with such far reaching effects. Therefore, the
> primary suspects have been identified, their dubious histories
> are well known, and their motives are clear. Any further effort
> to impede this investigation places FBI director Mueller in the
> position of an ‘enemy national,’ or a traitor to the American
> people he is sworn to protect.”
