Exonerated anthrax suspect: FBI harassed me
msnbc ^ | April 16, 2010 | Mike Celizic

The man falsely accused by the FBI of sending letters laced with deadly anthrax spores has received a big settlement from the government, but never an apology for destroying his life.

What’s more, Dr. Steven J. Hatfill told TODAY’s Matt Lauer during his first interview since the September 2001 attacks, neither the Justice Department nor the FBI has been held accountable for breaking the law and lying in their pursuit of him.

“I love my country,” Hatfill, 56, told Lauer. But, he added, “I learned a couple things. The government can do to you whatever they want. They can break the laws, federal laws, as they see fit … You can’t turn laws on and off as you deem fit. And the Privacy Act laws were put in place specifically to stop what happened to me. Whether we’re at war or have been attacked, the foundation of society is that you hold to the laws in place. I used to be somebody that trusted the government. Now I really don't trust anything.”

Thanks for the ping.

The Matt Lauer interview and the MSNBC article were both CRAP.

Lauer probably interviewed Hatfill for a couple hours in order to get the few minutes they showed on TV. They deliberately avoided mentioning how Dr. Hatfill became a suspect in the first place.

Hatfill wasn't a suspect because the FBI made him a suspect. Hatfill became a suspect because conspiracy theorists and the media - including The New York Times - campaigned for EIGHT MONTHS to make Hatfill a suspect. They even accused the FBI of covering up for Dr. Hatfill because the FBI WASN'T publicly investigating him!

The article in The Atlantic magazine is infinitely better, although the author of that article also got a few things wrong.

PROFILE: BARBARA HATCH ROSENBERG:
Unconventional Detective Bears Down on a Killer

Jennifer Couzin

Barbara Hatch Rosenberg has become one of the most visible critics of the FBI’s investigation into the anthrax mailings last fall that killed five people and sickened at least 17 others. She also has become the leading nongovernment authority on who might have committed the crimes. Both admirers and detractors agree that she has pushed the FBI forward.

A good article. Too bad it isn't on-line on Science magazine's web site except to subscribers. Their link is HERE

The article is very admiring of Barbara Hatch Rosenberg and the way she pointed the finger at Hatfill and argued that he was the killer until the FBI started to publicly investigate him.

FreeRepublic once had a thread about the article, but it was pulled.
