The Smoking Gun has Documents re the Anthrax Suspect
Edited on Fri Aug-01-08 01:49 PM by Cheney Killed Bambi
The government biodefense researcher who committed suicide as federal prosecutors reportedly prepared to indict him in connection with the 2001 anthrax attacks was committed to a Maryland psychiatric hospital last month after making death threats against a counselor, according to court records. Bruce Ivins, 62, who died Tuesday of a drug overdose, had been scheduled to appear yesterday in a Frederick County court in connection with a protective order application filed by Jean Duley, program director of Comprehensive Counseling Associates. In her July 24 petition, a copy of which you'll find below, Duley referred to Ivins as a "client" who "has a history dating to his graduate days of homicidal threats, actions, plans, threats & actions towards therapist." Duley added that Ivins's psychiatrist called him "homicidal, sociopathic with clear intentions," and that "FBI involved, currently under investigation & will be charged w/ 5 capital murders. I have been subpoena to testify before a federal grand jury August 1, 2008 in Washington, D.C.." Duley's court filing was apparently triggered by several threatening phone messages left by Ivins early last month. Her petition for a peace order, which was granted by a District Court judge, added that Ivins was hospitalized last month at Frederick Memorial Hospital and then transferred to Sheppard Pratt, a psychiatric facility. Ivins, Duley stated, "was to have commitment hearing July 16th/signed in vol. to get himself out." Ivins, an anthrax researcher, worked for 36 years at the U.S. Army's Fort Detrick facility, according to an obituary. Fort Detrick has been has been a focus of federal investigators probing the 2001 attacks, which killed five people, since scientists there, including Ivins, have done extensive research on inhaled anthrax spores. According to the Los Angeles Times, federal prosecutors were about to file criminal charges against Ivins, and that the researcher had "been informed of his impending prosecution." (6 pages)

7. I can't imagine any of that could be untrue.
Because the government is always truthful and what reason could anyone have to hide the truth?

8. no doubt--but why are confidential pt. records released?
Edited on Fri Aug-01-08 02:21 PM by librechik
I'm sure nobody wanted to influence the perception of Ivins in any way.

14. That may depend on the size of the top you're
spinning. Only one phrase is necessary re this entire story - it's way too convenient starting with the suicide.

13. These aren't confidential medical records
they're court documents filed in order to get a restraining order.

11. Right. I can see why it took 7 years to find him.
I'm sure that you can't swing a dead cat at Ft Deitrich without hitting a bug-fuck crazy department head in charge of the anthrax used to kill five and start the Iraq war.

18. Who did it isn't as important as who used it to frame Iraq
Maybe Ivins sent the anthrax-laced letters, maybe not. But we know for certain who benefited from the fear induced by the attacks and the patently untrue claims linking the anthrax to Iraq.

Funny how ABC has never been taken to task for continuing to withhold the names of its sources for the concocted "traces of bentonite = Iraq" story it repeated to viewers. The names of those sources would prove very interesting.

all hope of a return to government of and by the people is lost.
