The Anthrax Hoaxposted by The Vidiot @ 2:59 PM Permalink I'll sum things up so you don't have to.
OK, so, when the Anthrax thing first happened, the war hawks were quick to blame it on Iraq as yet another fabricated cause to bomb that country. Then, the FBI started to chase this Hatfill guy around until they were blue in the face. They couldn't pin it on him, try as the might. In fact, he ended up suing them and winning $5.2 million against the FBI. So, then, the FBI started doing heavy pressure investigations of Ft. Detrick anthrax researchers and I guess they settled on the Ivins guy, maybe because he was "weak", who knows.
But the story gets weirder. The woman who filed the restraining order on him has her own history of issues that compromises her. And while some in the media continue to frame Ivins, others are saying, hey, wait a minute and co-workers and friends say he's not the one. His suicide is quite convenient, no?
There is a prime suspect, by the way, just not one the FBI is willing to pursue.
Read Justin Raimondo's article on it. It's way more detailed than mine, but this is it in a nutshell.
I guess my whole thing is, it's been seven freakin' years and they can't seem to find the guy who did it? But heaven forbid some senior citizen should crack a joke about assassinating George Bush and his house will be swarming with S.W.A.T. teams within minutes. Go figure.
