PostalMag is coming out with a 6th year anniversary special today on the anthrax attacks and if the feature suggests AQ is responsible, you can be sure Ed won’t include it in his many hundreds of articles.

If their article is about the anthrax attacks of 2001, which you say it is, I would DEFINITELY put it on my site. That is what MY site is about. Why wouldn't I put it on my site?

If it were just another article about al Qaeda or about al Qaeda's search for Weapons of Mass Destruction, then I would NOT put it on my site, because my site is not about al Qaeda. YOUR site is about al Qaeda.

Why is this so difficult for you to understand? Is it your mission in life to make EVERY web site about al Qaeda? Why do you have this pathological need to put things on MY web site?

The Washington Post has said that the FBI Amerithrax Task Force has posited that, when a Gitmo detainee (which turns out to be the Kabul military commander) told them that there was a storage of anthrax in Kabul, that it was made in the US and transported there. (Which is consistent with the travel of many operatives there during this timeframe).

For Ed not to include the story about what the USG has charged the Gitmo detainee with (possession of anthrax) renders readers unable to “connect the dots” — and understand the Washington Post’s summary of the Amerithrax matter. For starters, a reader misses the identity and position of the person the Amerithrax Task Force was getting its information from. A reader also miss the allegation that the detainee has been charged with possession of weaponized anthrax.

Clearly, this military commander captured upon the Fall of Kabul, who agreed to turn over the weapons etc. and who stood accused of having possessed anthrax, is alleged to have been in the thick of things. Yet, Ed omits all these articles while including dozens of articles about anthrax from African drums, shield laws, biological weapons convention etc. — creating a vacuum of relevant information that then lets people with a radical political analysis — like the one law professor on terror watch lists — to create conspiracy theories that anthrax was used to permit increased spending.

Ed, as best as I can tell, even failed to link Mueller’s video when he said to think 9/11, think Oklahoma City — even though he is the single most authoritative speaker on the subject.

If in the summer of 2001, someone discussing the threat failed to include possibly relevant information and make it available to those who wanted to analyze the threat, I would hope that someone would say: hey, wait a minute, didn’t you see that memo about the flight school students? Hey, wait a minute, didn’t you know that Ibn Khattab worked with Bin Laden and so if Moussaoui is linked to Ibn Khattab, access to his computer is warranted under FISA under any interpretation? Hey, wait a minute, this guy in the phone book was at the January 2000 meeting in Kuala Lumpur with the other Al Qaeda operatives etc.

Here the articles he refuses to post:

September 10, 2007 — SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -
Sometimes the allegations alarmed even the panels of military officers charged with determining whether a detainee should be freed.
Rahmatullah Sangaryar stood accused of “planning biological and poison attacks on United States and coalition forces in Kandahar, Afghanistan,” and of possessing anthrax powder and a liquid poison.
The Afghan detainee said he was captured only with muddy clothes, possessed no anthrax and never planned such an attack. The officer in charge of the panel seemed to grope for a response.
“Do you know of anyone who would accuse you of such an act? This is so serious,” the unidentified officer exclaimed. “I am trying to understand why it is here in front of me, this allegation against you.”
The military has released a greater number of detainees from Guantanamo Bay than the roughly 340 men who are there today.
As of Sept. 6, the United States had transferred or released about 435 prisoners from Guantanamo to more than two dozen nations since the detention center opened in January 2002.
But the Administrative Review Board panels determined last year that 83 percent of the detainees whose cases they’d deliberated were too dangerous to be sent away.

Afghan agents say they arrested Muhammad Hanif in the eastern province of Nangarhar near the border with Pakistan on Monday.

Two others travelling with him were also apprehended.

Nangarhar Governor Gul Aghar Sherzai said he had been picked up in a house which also contained what he described as packets of anthrax powder.

He did not say if the powder found was the deadly anthrax bacteria, or how much of it there was. Local intelligence officials and police would not confirm any discovery of anthrax.

And no, he won’t post the article from Postal Mag.
