Vindication of sorts for critics who said that the FBI falsely pinned blame for the mailed anthrax attacks shortly after 9/11 on the conveniently dead Bruce Ivins. Carol Cratty reports for CNN:

Using the available scientific evidence “it is not possible to reach a definitive conclusion” about the source of the anthrax used in the 2001 anthrax letter attacks which killed five people, according to a report issued Tuesday by the National Academy of Sciences.

The findings come two and a half years after the FBI said Army microbiologist Bruce Ivins was allegedly behind the anthrax mailings, and the spores could be genetically traced to a flask labeled RMR-1029 in his lab.

The scientific panel said the anthrax used in mailings to news organizations and members of Congress was the Ames strain Bacillus anthracis, and spores from those letters shared “a number of genetic similarities” with spores in Ivins’ flask.

There are many skeptics when it comes to the FBI purporting to “close the case” on the 2001 anthrax attacks, led perhaps by Eric Nadler and Bob Coen. Now they have some high profile support from a colleague of the conveniently-dead scapegoat, Bruce Ivins, reported in the New York Times:

A former Army microbiologist who worked for years with Bruce E. Ivins, whom the F.B.I. has blamed for the anthrax letter attacks that killed five people in 2001, told a National Academy of Sciences panel on Thursday that he believed it was impossible that the deadly spores had been produced undetected in Dr. Ivins’s laboratory, as the F.B.I. asserts.

Asked by reporters after his testimony whether he believed that there was any chance that Dr. Ivins, who committed suicide in 2008, had carried out the attacks, the microbiologist, Henry S. Heine, replied, “Absolutely not.” At the Army’s biodefense laboratory in Maryland, where Dr.

CNN Finds Addiction Counselor Who Says She ‘Knows’ Ivins Was Anthrax Killer

There has been a lot of skepticism about the FBI's closure of the 2001 anthrax terror scare, led perhaps by Bob Coen & Eric Nadler, authors of Dead Silence: Fear and Terror on the Anthrax Trail. Now CNN is running a video questioning the state of Dr. Bruce Ivins' mind, suggesting strongly that it was definitely Ivins who was behind the anthrax attacks. Is this is a case of the major media helping out the government?
