October 14, 2001: ’Strange Coincidence’ Briefly Increases Suspicions Al-Qaeda Is behind Anthrax Attacks

Gloria Irish.
The FBI confirms that Gloria Irish rented an apartment to two of the 9/11 hijackers. Her husband is Michael Irish, who is an editor of the Sun, a Florida tabloid newspaper, and the first victim of the anthrax attacks earlier this month. Bob Stevens, who also worked at the Sun, and several others at the tabloid offices were injured. The FBI says that Irish rented different apartments in Delray Beach, Florida, to hijackers Marwan Alshehhi and Saeed Alghamdi during the summer of 2001. But one FBI spokesperson says, “Right now it looks like a coincidence,” and another calls it a “strange coincidence.” Two of the hijackers, including Mohamed Atta, also had subscriptions to the Sun. But Irish says “there is no way” the hijackers could have known about any Sun connection through her. Michael Irish is a licensed pilot who was a member of the Civil Air Patrol based at Lantana Airport. Atta reportedly rented a plane at that airport in August (see August 16-19, 2001). Stevens, who died of anthrax on October 5, also lived in Lantana. But there is no evidence that Irish or Stevens crossed paths with Atta. The story will quickly die after nothing more is found to the connection.

1. Smells like....

...not-so-subtle intimidation to me. As in, "Don't consider talking about us having rented planes or having been at your airport." I'm sure the word spread quickly through Lantana.

Let's not forget that among politicians, only Democrats received anthrax. What a way to cower the congressional opposition into submission for the Patriot Act. Can it all be anything but an insider job?

2. I have the type of mind that races to conclusions

I have believed this was coordinated effort, from a single source since the beginning. That man got anthraxed because he knew too, much.
Don Rumsfeld is biological weapons guy. The guy of rape rooms and anthrax. And your West Nile virus guy. And your swine flu guy. And your flu shot guy. Bet he thought he'd have stock in the antedote for West Nile, by now.
Somebody from Saudi Arabia connected to the Bushes jumped on a plane 9/13 and took the secrets with them

When the banks in England recently sued the Saudi government for being complict in 9/11, they weren't deceived.

Okay enough conspiring. I love to make stuff up.

9. To be fair...

It seems anyone could have found the information regarding whose apartments various hijackers were renting.
