    New light is being shed on the 2001 anthrax attacks in a fascinating open letter to Ayman al Zawahiri of al Qaeda, written by a jihadi living in London. Numan Bin Uthman, a former leader of an armed Islamic group in Libya, provides yet more evidence that the global Islamic jihad movement is losing its resolve.  But the letter contains a startling admission. Uthman tells us of a conversation he had with al Qaeda leaders before the 9/11 attacks in which he urged them not to use WMD. From AKI News: Uthman also said that he had taken part in...

    Widow wants answers By EMILY J. MINOR Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Saturday, October 06, 2007 W hen she looks back - and how can you not? - it all makes so much sense. The tubes and the masks and the FBI agents. Video: See an exclusive interview with Maureen Stevens. The worried doctors and the sneaky reporters and the room where they told her the ending. "I should have known," Maureen Stevens says now. But back then, things like masks and tubes and a box of tissues on a meeting room table just didn't click. Now, of course, it...

    The most famous bioterrorist episode of recent times has been the series of anthrax-laced envelopes mailed from Trenton, New Jersey in September and October 2001 to various newspaper and government offices. In spite of enormous media coverage and painstaking investigation by the FBI, aided by hundreds of thousands of tips from the public and by dozens of teams of scientific researchers, thus far neither the Anthrax Mailer himself (or, against all supposition, herself) nor the source of the anthrax has been identified. In its investigation of the anthrax mailing case, the FBI has relied heavily on specialists. While specialized knowledge...

    <p>The CIA has been quietly building a case that the anthrax attacks of 2001 were in fact the result of an international terrorist plot.</p> <p>U.S. officials with access to intelligence reports tell us the information showing a terrorist link to the anthrax-filled letters sent by mail in the weeks after the September 11 terrorist attacks is not conclusive. But it is persuasive.</p>

    WASHINGTON -- The bioterrorism expert under scrutiny in the 2001 anthrax attacks filed a lawsuit Tuesday accusing Attorney General John Ashcroft and other government officials of trampling his constitutional rights and using him as a scapegoat for their failure to make an arrest in the case. Dr. Steven J. Hatfill claims that, by labeling him a "person of interest" in the case, Ashcroft and other federal authorities have destroyed his reputation and ruined his job prospects.

    UConn spores positive; Army plans more tests By MICHAEL P. MAYKO Saturday, December 01, 2001 Two vials seized from the refrigerator of a University of Connecticut graduate student have tested positive for anthrax. Michael J. Wolf, who heads FBI operations in Connecticut, said that additional tests on the bacteria will be performed by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases Laboratories at Fort Dietrich, Md. Wolf said the purpose of those tests will be to determine if the samples match the deadly anthrax spores being sent through the mail. That strain is being referred to as the "Ames ...

    Anthrax link to US bioweapon of the 60s Thursday, October 25, 2001 The anthrax now spreading terror in America closely matches a strain developed as a US bioweapon in the 1960s, it has been claimed. According to the evidence, the germ is not the same type as that mass-produced for weapons by Iraq or the former Soviet Union. The FBI has confirmed that the anthrax sent to Florida, NBC, and Senator Tom Daschle were all the same strain, called &quot;Ames&quot;. This was the name given to a strain isolated by the US Department of Agriculture's veterinary laboratory in Ames, ...
