Over the next couple of weeks, I will release a six-part series on the world of anthrax….
We all remember the horror of the Twin Towers, but who remembers the anthrax attacks on Congress? It was a one-two punch on our republic but comparatively, there was scant talk about the second blow that began with the first letters being sent seven days after 9/11. But did you know that the ensuing $100 million investigation by the FBI was the largest and most complex in the history of law enforcement and it was code-named “Amerithrax?”
Who was behind the 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States?
The investigation leads to a shadowy world.
Let’s recap: Just weeks after 9/11 hit, less than a teaspoon full of dry anthrax in an envelope shut down the United States Senate for the first time in modern history. Someone mailed letters laced with the deadly powder to the media and U.S. senators. Two media offices at Microsoft received letters containing anthrax, along with one at NBC News headquarters to anchor Tom Brokaw. A week after that, the FBI recovered an identical-looking spore-laden letter from the offices of the New York Post. A letter was also sent to Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and Sen. Patrick J. Leah. Interestingly both were critics of the Patriot Act.
The letters read:
“This is next / Take penicillin now / Death to America / Death to Israel / Allah is great.”
Robert Stevens, the Florida National Enquirer tabloid photography editor was the first to die. Four others followed. President Bush, albeit 20 years ago, said he could not rule out that Osama bin Laden was behind the scare. Meanwhile, now-deceased Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State, went in front of the United Nations, on February 3rd, 2003, to argue that the United States had justification to invade Iraq to stop Saddam Hussein’s Weapons Of Mass Destruction (WMD). He waved a vial that could have been anthrax but was more likely just talcum powder.
“Less than a teaspoonful of dry anthrax in an envelope shut down the United States Senate,” he said. “Saddam Hussein could have … enough to fill tens upon tens upon tens of thousands of teaspoons.”
According to rumors, Gavyn Davies, Chairman of the BBC at the time of the Iraq War, was the one who wrote the script for “shaking the white vial of anthrax.”
Two weeks later, Americans were told to buy duct tape and plastic sheeting to protect themselves from a bioterror attack. Fear of anthrax infected their psyche and panic spread throughout the nation. At any moment, spores could be delivered to someone’s home.
What followed was the invasion of Iraq by the U.S. and its allies, along with the destruction and destabilization of the region. The letters served to further encroach on our civil liberties and bring an anthrax vaccine to market. The letters were also crucial in justifying the war, further propelling the Patriot Act, and making DNA swabs mandatory, adds Webb. (While I don’t get into it in this series, according to Webb’s reports, Robert Malone was involved in the anthrax vaccine.)
Were the anthrax attacks courtesy of good ol Bogeyman Bin or was this also an inside job like 9/11?
