WASHINGTON More than eight years after anthrax-laced letters killed five people and terrorized the country, the F.B.I. on Friday closed its investigation, adding eerie new details to its case that the 2001 attacks were carried out by Bruce E. Ivins, an Army biodefense expert who killed himself in 2008.
A 92-page report, which concludes what by many measures is the largest investigation in F.B.I. history, laid out the evidence against Dr. Ivins, including his equivocal answers when asked by a friend in a recorded conversation about whether he was the anthrax mailer.
If I found out I was involved in some way... Dr. Ivins said, not finishing the sentence. I do not have any recollection of ever doing anything like that, he said, adding, I can tell you, I am not a killer at heart. But in a 2008 e-mail message to a former colleague, one of many that reflected distress, Dr. Ivins wrote, I can hurt, kill, and terrorize. He added: Go down low, low, low as you can go, then dig forever, and youll find me, my psyche.
The report disclosed for the first time the F.B.I.s theory that Dr. Ivins embedded in the notes mailed with the anthrax a complex coded message, based on DNA biochemistry, alluding to two female former colleagues with whom he was obsessed.
The report described how an F.B.I. surveillance agent watched in 2007 as Dr. Ivins threw out a article and a book, Douglas Hofstadters Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, that could betray his interest in codes, coming out of his house in Frederick, Md., at 1 a.m. in long underwear to make certain the garbage truck had taken his trash...

Somehow I missed the name when I copied this!!!!
To know that one third of the world's population would do this if they had the knowledge (and we have trained a great number of them) makes for sleepless nights.
With the recent capture of top Taliban leaders, someone will spill the beans that Middle Eastern fanatics (trained in the USA) did this. Then all He$$ will break loose.
Many of you know my story, an eyewitness account of how and where it was originally stolen. I feel that now the case is closed I can write the book.
It's titled: IT ONLY HURTS WHEN I LOOK AT IT.
Do you have a link to your story?Thanks.
Maybe the FBI doesn't know all it thinks it knows about the Doc, or Babs.
There are I think 7 installments. Read that first and then you can ask any questions you'd like.
Oh this is so great:)Thanks.
Will read later.
