If you're interested in the anthrax story like I am, then you'll want to hop on over to Glenn Greenwald on Sunday, August 3rd and Monday August 4th, for lots of dirt coming out about the misreporting by the MSM on Bruce Ivins. Ivins may be the anthrax killer, but with all the conflicting information out there, and most of it you've heard on the news, there are way too many unanswered questions and implausible witnesses. When you start to connect the dots, the "official" story becomes quite ridiculous. As usual.
You may or may not recall that ABC News in 2001 released a false story that linked Iraq to the anthrax attacks. They said that the anthrax had bentonite which came from Iraq. This gave way to millions of Americans who supported the invasion of Iraq. How very convenient. ABC and Brian Ross still refuse to divulge their source... it was an untrue source and shouldn't qualify for journalistic privilege and secrecy (so many say). More and more journalists are calling on ABC to spill the beans as to where they got the false information. Interestingly, the NY Daily News yesterday broke a story that The FBI was told to blame Anthrax scare on al Qaida by White House officials, particularly Dick Cheney.
You've probably read that Ivins was an unstable psychotic, when in fact those doing the accusations are quite unstable themselves, and seemingly more psychotic than Bruce Ivins. Greenwald has the real poop on this very unreliable source.
You probably read that Ivins was obsessed with a sorority near the mailbox used to mail the anthrax letters, when in fact the sorority had no actual sorority house. You may have read that the DOJ was about to file criminal charges against Ivins when he killed himself, when in fact there were still several weeks of testimony to be heard by the grand jury before any indictment came in. Interestingly Ivins had full security clearance at Ft Detrick right up until July 10th of this year. Not what you'd expect if the FBI was convinced you were the anthrax killer.
And this is only the tip of the iceberg. There are still so many unanswered questions about why the anthrax killers targeted journalists and Democrats. Kind of starts to make sense in retrospect. What a great way to push through the Patriot Act by attacking Democrats or what a great way to get the media to fall into line, by attacking journalists. Why on earth would a scientist have such initiative to do so much harm on his own based on what we know now about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq being planned before the attacks of 9/11. I still don't by the story that a scientist would kill himself with Tylenol.
There are very evil and greedy people out there trying to push their agendas through at any cost. The MSM cannot be trusted as usual. Remember we're living in opposite-land.
