But in an e-mail obtained by FOX News, scientists at Fort Detrick openly discussed how the anthrax powder they were asked to analyze after the attacks was nearly identical to that made by one of their colleagues."the stuff made by [name redacted]"
"Then he said he had to look at a lot of samples that the FBI had prepared ... to duplicate the letter material," the e-mail reads. "Then the bombshell. He said that the best duplication of the material was the stuff made by [name redacted]. He said that it was almost exactly the same his knees got shaky and he sputtered, 'But I told the General we didn't make spore powder!'"
Reading Fox today, it doesn't sound like "Ivins" is the redacted name.
That’s also my reading. I think Ivins may the redacted name of the person who examined samples for the FBI - but the guy who actually made the most similar powder is definitely another person.
