Mystery surrounds Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russia and President Trump. Some think he is the ultimate professional, others that he is a Democrat lackey, still others maintain he is working on Trump’s side. We can see how he works if we look at how Mueller ran his second-most important investigation as FBI Director. In September of 2001, an entity began mailing anthrax through the US Postal system, hitting such prominent targets as NBC and Senator Daschle’s office. The terrorist attacks killed five and left others hospitalized. The world panicked. Under Mueller’s management, the FBI launched an investigation lasting...

UK Daily Mail ^ | December 26, 2017 | Tariq Tahir and Sara Malm
A North Korean soldier who defected to the South has been found to have anthrax antibodies in his bloodstream, local news reports. The unidentified soldier, believed to be the man who defected in November this year, would have been either exposed to or vaccinated against anthrax before he defected to South Korea. This comes after a report that North Korea is conducting biological weapons experiments to test the possibility of loading anthrax-laden warheads on its intercontinental ballistic missiles.

North Korea is beginning tests on mounting anthrax onto intercontinental ballistic missiles that would strike the U.S., a report said on Wednesday just two days after the White House’s U.S. National Security Strategy stated Kim Jong Un is pursuing chemical and biological weapons. The Hermit Kingdom is beginning experiments to test out if anthrax can endure immense heat and pressure it will have to endure when loaded into an ICBM and launched toward the earth’s atmosphere, Japan’s Asahi newspaper reported, citing an unidentified person connected to South Korea’s intelligence services. “North Korea has started experiments such as heat and pressure...

Comey, Mueller bungled big anthrax case together

Orange County Register ^ | May 21, 2017 | Carl M. Cannon
...when I heard Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had appointed Bob Mueller as a special prosecutor, I didn’t experience the same rhapsody as my capital compatriots. Why? Three reasons. First, Jim Comey and Bob Mueller have a long history as professional allies. For Mueller to be brought in to investigate the behavior of the guy who sacked Comey seems a conflict of interest. Perhaps this is the wrong way to look at it, and Mueller’s professionalism will supersede any personal loyalty. OK, but here’s a second reason: These two guys, working in tandem, have a track record of bureaucratic infighting...

The left-radical propaganda and threats of violence against non-conforming opinions are always more frightening. The target of the most recent threat: the Hamburg chapter of the AfD [Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany]. Left-wing extremist opponents of the G20 sent a threatening letter to the faction and announced the sending of “anthrax letters”. The chairman for Hamburg...

Baltimore Sun ^ | 15 Jan 2016 | John Fritze and Ian Duncan
Army investigators on Friday blamed a one-star general who now works at Aberdeen Proving Ground and 11 other people for management failures they say contributed to the accidental shipment of live anthrax to labs around the globe over several years. Army investigators who reviewed Dugway Proving Ground in Utah wrote that Brig. Gen. William E. King IV perpetuated a "complacent atmosphere" when he commanded the lab at the installation. Workers at Dugway mistakenly shipped live anthrax to 194 other labs in the United States and overseas, including to Aberdeen Proving Ground and other sites in Maryland.

Brussels largest and oldest mosque, the Great Mosque, has been evacuated and decontamination units called after an envelope reportedly containing a “suspicious powder” was found inside. A civil protection squad has decontaminated several people as a precaution. The Fire service fears this powder to be anthrax. First partial tests show that the powder is not radioactive. The person who opened the package discovered white powder and immediately contacted the authorities. A specialized crew from the fire department was sent, witnesses at the scene said. Fire brigade Capt. Anne Wibin said 11 people underwent a precautionary decontamination until it could be...

Washington Times ^ | 7/28/15 | Jacqueline Klimas
Lawmakers on Tuesday criticized the military for a yearslong pattern of complacency with biological threats as Defense Department admitted to shipping live anthrax to nearly 200 labs worldwide. Rep. Tim Murphy, Pennsylvania Republican, took aim at Utah’s Dugway Proving Ground, which mistakenly distributed live anthrax, for using a “potentially deadly process” for more than a decade without anyone noticing the problems. “What we have here is a pattern of recurring issues of complacency and a lax culture of safety,” said Rep. Tim Murphy, Pennsylvania Republican. “What’s it going to take to change things this time?”

A US Army research facility mistakenly shipped live anthrax to labs in the US and abroad for more than 10 years because of ineffective sterilization methods for killing the deadly bacteria, according to a federal report obtained by USA Today. In the three-page report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US Army facility in Utah was cited for three violations of federal regulations for working with potential bioterror agents, and was ordered to cease shipment of “inactivated” anthrax specimens immediately. The Dugway Proving Ground’s Life Science Test Facility is at the center of the scandal. It was...

Live anthrax samples were shipped to three laboratories in Canada by a U.S. military lab, USA Today reported on Monday, following disclosures last week that samples of the bacteria were mistakenly sent to 11 U.S. states and two other countries. The newspaper cited two Defense Department officials as saying the samples sent to Canada came from the Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, where the other samples appear to trace back to as well. It is one of the U.S. military labs responsible for inactivation and shipping of biological material.

AP ^ | 5/29/15
The U.S. Army’s top general said Thursday that human error probably was not a factor in the Army’s mistaken shipment of live anthrax samples from a chemical weapons testing site that was opened more than 70 years ago in a desolate stretch of desert in Utah. Gen. Ray Odierno, the Army chief of staff, told reporters the problem may have been a failure in the technical process of killing, or inactivating, anthrax samples. The process in this case “might not have completely killed” the samples as intended before they were shipped, he said. Odierno said the Centers for Disease Control...

"At this time we do not suspect any risk to the general public," CDC spokeswoman Kathy Harben said.

When Bruce E. Ivins, an Army microbiologist, took a fatal overdose of Tylenol in 2008, the government declared that he had been responsible for the anthrax letter attacks of 2001, which killed five people and set off a nationwide panic, and closed the case. Now, a former senior F.B.I. agent who ran the anthrax investigation for four years says that the bureau gathered “a staggering amount of exculpatory evidence” regarding Dr. Ivins that remains secret. The former agent, Richard L. Lambert, who spent 24 years at the F.B.I., says he believes it is possible that Dr. Ivins was the anthrax...
