Anthrax spores

COMMENT: In past posts and programs [8], we have noted evidence of a cover-up [9] in the anthrax attacks of 2001. Now, a former FBI agent is suing the bureau, charging that he was subject to professional retaliation in exchange for questioning the official pronouncement that Bruce Ivins was the “lone nut” perpetrator of the attacks.

Although Richard L. Lambert thinks it possible that Ivins was the mailer, he thinks the bureau was railroading him.

“Former F.B.I. Agent Sues, Claiming Retaliation Over Misgivings in Anthrax Case” by Scott Shane; The New York Times; 4/9/2015. [10]

When Bruce E. Ivins [11], an Army microbiologist, took a fatal overdose of Tylenol in 2008, the government declared that he had been responsible for the anthrax [12] 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. [13] 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. [13], says he believes it is possible that Dr. Ivins was the anthrax mailer, but he does not think prosecutors could have convicted him had he lived to face criminal charges.

In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Tennessee last Thursday, Mr. Lambert accused the bureau of trying “to railroad the prosecution of Ivins” and, after his suicide, creating “an elaborate perception management campaign” to bolster its claim that he was guilty. Mr. Lambert’s lawsuit accuses the bureau and the Justice Department of forcing his dismissal from a job as senior counterintelligence officer at the Energy Department’s lab in Oak Ridge, Tenn., in retaliation for his dissent on the anthrax case. . . .
